On the recommendation of a tourist rep, we had dinner at Papa Joe's. The garlic Italian bread was fresh & hot out of the oven - replaced a couple of times. The salad dressings were home made & delicious. Nice ambiance, food & service were excellent.

The food was excellent, nicely prepared and presented. Service was top notch. My guest was most impressed and being Italian, he could be picky, but said he enjoyed the meal and reminded him of his Grandma's cooking; I guess that rates 5 stars.

We went in a Saturday night. There was a 45 minute wait, so we decided to wait at the bar. When we got there, the entire lobby was full, and other people came in after us as well. Either those people had reservations, or they forgot about us, because we were the next to last people to get seated (and... More

Description
Papa Joe"s Italian Restaurant has been a family tradition for 30 years. Papa Joe has personally constructed a diverse menu to fit anyone and everybody's taste buds, and each dish is prepared to order 'justa for you'. Whether you are looking for an aged tender steak, fresh seafood, or are in need of a carb fix, we got it! From the beginning, Papa Joe has prided himself in using the freshest and most whole ingredients available. In fact, many of the herbs we use are picked fresh from our herb garden and all of our dough is made on premises with a healthy blend of semolina and stone ground wheat. Cheers!
