Original Joe's - Calgary - Macleod
We never take ourselves too seriously. We love good food experienced in the company of true friends, in an atmosphere that fits us like a well-worn pair of jeans. It feels real here & that’s just fine by us.
No pretense. No frou-frou. Just craft beers, approachable wines & tried-and-true cocktails. All served up with the kind of fresh-made comfort food you crave again & again. To this day we still hand cut our fries, serve most of our entrées with two sides & pour our own Original Joe’s beer. So, come sit at our bar without having to lowers yours.

It was rather dark for a lunch meeting.
Service was decent, but seemed like servers were assigned too many tables.
Our server was awesome.
We had a great lunch at OJ’s. This is my first time at this location and I’ll be back.
Great evening out. Thanks for the good service and delicious food.
My son in law’s birthday.
Love the food! It was a Tuesday night and it was busy so our poor waitress was run off her feet but she worked hard. We will be back
Food and service was excellent!
Everything was awesome! Food, service and atmosphere. It was exactly what we were looking for in our lunch date.
Stopped in for a quick beer and bite with a friend. It was not busy at all with only one other table, but didn't mind as this generally means great service to break up monotony by staff on duty. And there was a full roster on, but they seemed to be more interested in chatting with each other than serving us, I actually waved down someone who said they'd get our server, and then we were able to order. Wasn't the worst thing in the world, but definitely something I was able to notice.
I had the beef dip, and it was pretty good! I'd go back as the food was fairly priced, and the environment can get lively I'm sure.
Great food, great service - will definitely be back!
Our server worked hard but it appeared to be low on waiters. As I said he worked hard but it was a little slow on service. Thankfully he was experienced. Overall great time. Burgers are to die for. I’ll go again
The grilled cheese hamburger was very bland in flavour.
great evening for a casual birthday dinner! the food and drinks were good and so was the service!
Not impressed with how many Skip the Dishes drivers were coming in and out of the restaurant. There were so many, I'm pretty sure at some points through our dinner OJs would have been over capacity for the covid 19 rules. I certainly didn't feel comfortable with how many were walking directly past our table and through the whole restaurant to pickup the food. It took so long for our dinner to come because OJs was so busy fulfilling outside orders. We won't be going back. We will go somewhere where Skip doesn't get to walk through the entire restaurant to pickup the orders.
The shrimp appetizer was amazing, however, the chicken burger was very greasy and salty. Great service overall.
Great service, food was excellent. Solid little comfy casual dining spot.
A bit loud, but it was the first weekend after some dining restrictions being lifted...and minus 30-40 for a week straight. So, can’t blame people for letting it out a bit.
Not on the cheap side, but not complaining. You normally get what you pay for! Bang for your buck was there.
Will be back for sure
Food was very good, service was awesome would definitely go back again.
We had booked a table. At entrance, they are not aware of booking. Left a note that it is wedding anniversary as well and seems no one care. My son forget his mask and all family had their own, they said sorry, we don't have masks!!. Services is poor and slow, and waiter was little aggressive in responding to us. I won't recommend the place.
Buffalo chicken poutine was delicious as were the Moscow mules.
Can be too loud at times, but overall we enjoyed eating there.
Very good night for appies and drinks. Perfect setting to get together with an old friend. Had a very good time.
Food was great, service was good (might want to teach the bartender how to pour a proper stout), it was busy but not sure how itll work with larger group sizes.
Had great service and a delicious chicken sandwich. Was very disappointed in the takeout soup I bought. About 11 ounces of soup and a few pieces of bread for $21.
Went for supper at 7.30. The service and food were excellent!
Sat on the patio, food was excellent as usual.
Fish and chips. I piece of fish. Not that big either. Have a feeling they ran out. Didn't complain but still. Beer is well priced.
First time eating out since March. Restaurant was very clean and organized. Food was good. Service was great. Sadly they were not to busy.
Our server was amazing, never was anyones support ever low, and she checked in often. I haven't had such a pleasant server in years. Everyone at the table loved how quick and great she was.
The food was delishes..keep up the phenomenal work
Food was good but service was bad enough that I'll never go back to this location.
I had a Cobb salad which I was not thrilled with. The turkey war sinuous and flavourless. My companions burger, fries and onion rings was excellent. A good pub food restaurant
It was the worst experience I ever seen from a restaurant. Extremely slow service from the server. Drinks were more important than coffee. Has to ask for a refill on coffee even though she was walking around with the pot. 45 mins to get food and it stone cold and grill residue over the eggs (as noted in the pictures) Another 20 minutes to get it redone after asking a few times. Manager was unaware of the issue until it was time to get the bill.
It was a good experience. Food is always great here and he location is good too. Raptors game 1 of the nba Finals was on and the atmosphere was great. Lively and loud. Felt a bit understaffed though for a night like this as service was a bit sparse than usual. Still got our food and drinks but could have used a few more rounds of drinks for the group. But still good overall n
OJ's is always goos in my books. It was funny though cause the host didn't know they took reservations. So I ended up in a high table which is not my choice. Otherwise great! Great server.
Tyically OJ's is a great spot for food... it was disappointing to see upon arrival a note on the door when arrived stating they were closed so we had to go elewhere. They could have alerted me to their closure using open table contact information.
Nothing special, but a good place for beers.
Typical "chain bar". It is a fun place to hang out.
A bit of a reunion with long time friends!
Our team came in for a work/baby/new teacher fun night and it was fantastic! I booked online and our table was ready. I asked to change and it was great! Thanks to the staff and management for making sure our night was fantastic:) cheers
Ojs is always a good choice for food. I was excited to be able to make a reservation at this location. But when we got there there was no table reserved and it didn’t appear that they were aware of my reservation. We were lucky to find a table for 8. Just disappointed that I went through the work ok making a reservation to find out it was useless.
We were on a very tight schedule and even though we had a late addition, we were able to phone the restaurant and get all of our menu choices added. As soon as we walked into the restaurant, our food came out piping hot and we were able to finish lunch and still have time to chat before getting back to the office. I didn't realize how seamlessly this could work. We'll definitely consider doing this again!
the food was great, the waitress was kind and accommodating but it took forever for the food to come. We waited 20 minutes for the food which made us late getting back to work. I did make a reservation and the table was set up nicely for us. We were a party of 6
