“I ate there.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

There isn't anything really special about this place. It is a sports bar that serves food and alcohol. It is like any other sports bar.

“A local Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

We live a few blocks from an OJ's, so we're there all the time. The service is consistently excellent, and the food is always great. It's not the most inventive bar menu out there, but they execute the whole menu well, and most items come with 2 large sides. You NEVER go home hungry here. Combined with a great beer selection, OJ's is our local standby. It's just one of those places you can't say no to, because you know you'll get great food, lots of it, a good beer, and a seat in front of a TV.

“Consistently great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

There are several OJ's in Alberta and I hear they now have locations open in Saskatchewan. I haven't been to the SK locations, but all of the ones I've visited in Calgary have been consistently great. Good food, huge portions, inexpensive, and the service is always friendly and helpful. If you're ordering from the sandwich menu you get to choose not one but two sides: I recommend the roasted veggies, and the mashed potatoes with gravy.
