    Didn’t know what to expect regarding the quality of food or pricing. Parking lot is always full when we drive by and decided to give it a try. Enjoyed the food, price was fair and Mike our waiter was perfect. Definitely will be back!

    It had been a while since we had been to Papa Joe’s. We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and service. The restaurant was packed at 6:45 on a Saturday night, and I had to park across the street. The staff for our entire visit could not have been nicer—attentive and kind. Our entrees of Chicken Marsala and Chicken Francaise were delicious and well presented. Do not miss the marscapone berry cake with raspberry sauce—a treat to share. We will be back.

    We were seated quickly, which was impressive given the large engagement party going on. The service was a bit slow, and didn’t seem to be related to everything going on. It was a very different experience if you were a regular. Not bad service, just not overly attentive. The food was rustic in presentation, by fine dining in flavor. The butter pecan old fashioned was incredible, and the stuffed hot peppers were fantastic as well. I had the cheese ravioli, and my wife had the penne, both with meat sauce and both super well prepared and tasty. We finished with a little cannoli, which did not disappoint. All things considered a great meal. We will be back.

    We had the salmon. Pretty good although we’ve had better at O’Charlie’s on a cedar plank.
