“Good food , Noisy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Recommended by a family member, this was our first time dining experience at Original Joes. The service was good and all four dishes were excellent for the value and presented well. The only down fall was the atmosphere was very noisy and echoing, it was very difficult to have a conversation without shouting at each other across the table or hear each other. The room is quite big and open and the sound bounced off the walls instead of being absorbed. We ended up leaving the restaurant promptly after the meal with a headache and sore throats instead of having a enjoyable evening out.....The solution, maybe some form of soundproofing would help enhance the guests dining experience......

“Best in West Kelowna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have had the Salmon Burger and the fish and chips and they are simply outstanding. The service in the restaurant equals the food itself. I recommend Original Joes for a casual lunch or special dinner out.

“Decent food and value.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Two out of four dishes were excellent, one average, and one poor. Atmosphere was quit noisy, so hard to carry on a conversation without shouting a bit. To be expected perhaps in a pub /sport bar situation. Will have to try again.

“over charging”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

the service was great, firendly staff, but when I ordered the bake french onion soup, and it had no broth in it,instead of sending it back and complaining, I asked our server if they could put a half scoop of beef broth in. She said no problem and the soup came back just fine. Until I received the bill and they charged me $3.50 for a half of scoop of beef broth. Totally un-necessary.

“Another found gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Our first time at original joes and we thought this could be a good thing. We enjoy long walks during the day and to be able to sit down have a great lunch, a cold glass of beer brought to you by a excellent server, what more could you ask for. We will be back, even in december I can see a trail leading to Original Joes Restaurant and Bar.
