I have eaten here on many occasions. It is consistently good and has something for everyone, even the pickiest of eaters. My favorite is the burger. You always leave full. Service is usually really good even when it is busy. I do not think that I have any complaints except that the high chairs and benches are sometimes difficult for... More

Went to Original Joes for brunch. I had their banana bread French toast plate. It was amazing. You definitely get a big meal and then some. Flavour of the meal was so great. They had their smashed potatoes! Terrific. A very enjoyable meal. Will definitely be back. Always enjoy coming here.

We went on Monday night. There was Monday special: $3.99 wings. My husband ordered salt and pepper chicken wings. I had between bread: Beef Dip. We all like the foods, very delicious. The side deviled egg potato salad is also fantastic. Waitress is beautiful and very nice.

Original Joe's could be a great place to eat if it wasn't so damn loud in there. For a start they have the stereo or television (usually sport) turned up way too loud, so conversation has to be stepped up, compounding the problem. And it's dark as heck in there; you can barely see what you're eating. Their redemption lies... More

This was a lunch for three girlfriends who had hoped to catch up on lost time, but it was so loud, even after the lunch rush that it was very difficult to hear each other. Our waitress was not very attentive - forgetting things like water and so on. The food was very fresh and good; crispy fries - amazing... More

It's a very happening restaurant, busy every time I've gone. Depending on where you're seated, the noise can be a bit too loud for conversation.(avoid the north side) If you're looking for an outstanding burger, try the Kona. The French fries are also very good. Just the right amount of crispy, and phenomenal when dipped in their dill mayo. I'm... More

We always have a great meal at OJs! And their brunch on the weekend is a really nice change from fast food breakfasts. I'm probably showing my age but I do find every location I have been to quite noisy and poorly lit. I will go back though!

We have tried a few Original Joe's locations and they're all fairly standard but tend to please everyone in the crowd. We stopped by right at supper-rush on a Tuesday night and overheard the people in front of us were going to wait 25 minutes for a table for 2. Our other party wasn't due to arrive for another half-our... More
