Great atmosphere for families. Excellent pizza and ice cream. Reasonably priced gourmet pizza. Great place for birthdays. Not a great place if you want quiet, as is family friendly and kids running around.

We ate on the Grill side of Happy Joes. It wasn't the best meal but dam close. The service was a bit slow but well worth the wait. You gotta try this place.

We always search for really good pizza! Happy Joe's did not disappoint!!! The guy who took our order was very friendly & asked several times if we needed anything, refilled drinks & engaged us in conversation. We will go back!!
