the original Joe's vanished into the night some years ago, taking a lot of gift-certificate money with it, and this is a poor, attitude-challenged replacement, bland, indifferent food and unjustifiably self-congratulatory staffers... joey, we hardly knew ye'

We have eaten Christmas dinner at joe's 3 out of the last 5 years. Very pleasant staff, good service and a nice meal. Salad was fresh and the bread sticks were hot. The bruschetta was also fresh and tasted great. Two of us had pasta and were very satisfied. The chicken dish was also enjoyed. All had leftovers (that's a first for us) that was lunch back at work the next day.
All in all an enjoyable experience where the service is friendly and the food is always good.
And thanks for being open for the holiday.

When I first went to look at ithaca college with my daughter 6 years ago , I remember stopping at Joe's and loving it. Over the years we would stop and eat there. It started going down hill. They changed the menu cutting way down on the selection which you would think would make the food better. They made the portions less. So, now you get less, bad food. This place is in a great location, it has been around for so long. Nothing is great there, everything is just OK. With all the restaurants in Ithaca, Just OK isn't going to make you sucessful.

We actually were not heading to lunch at this restaurant. The place we were heading was not open for lunch, the 2nd place we tried was also not open (we were having a tough day!!!) and Joe's was our 3rd choice. As they say, "third time's the charm". We really enjoyed our lunch. New England Clam Chowder was on special today,absolutely fabulous, and a meal in itself! We had a flatbread basil pizza that was very good. Kristen was a wonderful waitress-attentive but not smothering. We had asked for separate checks, and she was kind enough to divide the pizza on the 2 checks without being asked. We have been in the past for dinner and at the time I thought it was overpriced for the meal that we received. Today the lunch was definitely a reasonable price for the delicious food that we had!
