We were here with a group of twelve, and there were 12 people ready to recommend this restaurant. Actually, you'd have no trouble getting recommendations before the place was renovated; it was already good. Now it's beautiful. A great atmosphere with terrific service, a very large menu, terrific food, and reasonable prices. Highly recommended: By all 12 of us.

Papa Joe's is always on my list of places to eat when I'm on PEI. My family has been eating there for many years and they are treated so well. Whenever I'm here from BC, Joanne always remembers me and my aunts. Their new renovation is absolutely beautiful and the food never disappoints! I usually have the fish and chips... More

They have recently redecorated and it is gorgeous, trendy and upscale. The Canadian, Lebanese menu is great with something for everyone. Dinner has more to choose from than lunch! The food is delicious, and freshly prepared with local ingredients. Try their Goddess Burger which won the PEI Burger Love Competition in 2012. It is made with PEI grassfed beef, special... More

The wait tells it all. The food is delicious as always but now the venue has been completely redecorated. Charming bar on the side, beautiful lighting, textured walls. A place to compete with the best in Charlottetown. The chicken mushroom linguini was wonderful. The 'burger love' burger was great. Apparently the onion rings are 'the best ever'. Also had the...

with same great comfort food menu. Visited Papa Joe's to enjoy their Burger Love entry. This is the first time we have visited since their recent remodel. The restaurant looks great. The introduction of booths gives more privacy and the whole updated look is simply a pleasure to the eye. As usual all dishes ordered were delicious, generous and well... More

I am Celiac and travelling can be a nightmare when we want to eat out. Last weekend we decided to take a chance and try burger love while visiting PEI for a race. I checked with some fellow Celiac's in PEI and saw that they had good results with Papa Joe's and decided to try it. All of my meals... More

I always enjoy my visits to Papa Joe's. They work hard to create a combination of tasty dining and kind service. Their Burger Love was the best I've had to date, and certainly offered good value compared to the other I reviewed. Papa Joe's - always a consistent, enjoyable experience.

Papa Joe's has been a family favorite for years! Family friendly, great "home cooked" food and now new beautiful interior. A most for a place to eat when visiting Charlottetown.
