I have been to Joe's a few times but my last experince was horrible. My friend and I went late night, it was a very busy night, it seemed like the waiter forgot about us even though we were in the middle of the room, and then asked to move to a corner of the resturant so a larger group could have our table.. That was not a problem at all, but the problem was they moved us after being there for 10-15 minutes and not even given us a menuu!!!! Joe the owner did recognize we didnt have a menu and got us one.

My friend and I order a pitcher to split and a nachos to start and each order a club with fries.. The food came after another 20 minutes which wasnt a big problem except the waiter brought us our nachos the same time as our clubs! + there was no fries!!! The nachos were very cold.. It was the most annoying experince, after all of that 2 clubs (no fries) cold nachos and pitcher that we both split, it came to 27 and change each!

I will not be going here again and will just order a slice of pizza instead from one of the neighbor resturants!

Excellent food and great service. This is always where we eat when in Wolfville. Many teams also eat here which is always a good sign.

Food is awesome, average/slightly expensive price. This restaurant makes a killing off of the local University students, but continues to charge $3.00 extra for extra veggies on nachos and anything extra in general. An extra 1.50 for sour creme always sucks, and a gratuity is placed on your bill after 10pm. Which really sucks. But the food is good even if the owner is a cheap skate.

On our visit to our niece, we asked her where she would like to have lunch. She picked Joe's.
Upon entering the restaurant, we were immediately greeted, offered menus and informed of the day's specials.
Two of us chose the special which was served quickly and was tasty.
Our niece chose chicken Fettuccini Alfredo - one of her favorite menu items.
Comfortable place to have lunch!
