Original Joe's - Ellerslie
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 OJ’s beer. So, come sit at our bar without having to lower yours.

We have been to Ojs many times always having a fantastic experience. It occurred to us that it really doesnt matter what section or what server because they will all be collectively looking after you. The definition of team. All front of house played a role. Our server was technically Antonina but we were checked on and prebussed by Justine, food delivered by Anto and Mac and while all were busy a round of drinks delivered by Bret. They all did the same for each other. They are an amazing group
We were seated at a small, high table between booths and the bar. It was an extremely high traffic area! All of the staff were constantly walking close to our table. Also, there were at least 10 food pick ups by delivery services that walked past us. The pickup should be at the front door, not in the back of the restaurant! It’s a pandemic!!
Food and service were good, disliked the bad seating in high traffic area. Next time I will refuse to sit in such a bad spot! I shouldn’t get such crappy seating making a reservation through this app!
Yet another feel like a guest in your home, comfortable experience. Want to feel warm and welcome? Go there!!
Appreciate a restaurant that takes reservations so one does not need to wait in line. Outstanding service and friendly staff. Everyone in group of 5 enjoyed their food.
Great place to hang out for drinks and the food is amazing quality and value
A great meal as usual. Great value, great taste, and great service.
Great experience. COVID precautions were well implemented.
excellent as usual. Our favourite restaurant, the staff always make us feel welcome.
Our favorite place. Our server Courtney D was/is excellent as always
The service was very personable yet professional, food was great and timely, ambience was friendly and relaxing, and pricing was fantastic!
Great night out at OJ’s. Good service and excellent food!
another wonderful experience as per usual! food and service on point!
During these COVID times I was impressed at how well organized the establishment was. Also the server MacLaine offered us alternative suggestions for our meals to make the food to our liking. Example: Hotty-Dilly-Yaki wings are now my favourite! The Manager (Sarah?) came to speak with us to ensure the service and quality met or exceeded our expectations. And they SURE did :)
Our favourite place to go to.always a great meal and great service.
Always great experience! Food great and great atmosphere.
It was a great experience
Really nice quiet environment with really excellent staff. The food is amazing and the patio is nice. Not to mention the beers are cold too. Has become the new weekly wing spot.
Wonderful service. Very clean and staff followed covid-protocol amazingly. Went with a friend and our three children and staff was accommodating to this. Cute bartender to top it all off :)
Original Joe’s is still our favourite place to eat!
Great patio and service at OJ’s it’s our local go to favourite and never disappoints.
When you have to keep requesting for the drink you ordered (two times) and don't receive it until you're already annnoyed. It wasn't a great experience this time. We won't be returning. ✌
The QR menu was a cool idea
Great to finally be able to come back and enjoy with friends. One of our favorite local hangouts
The food was excellent and service was as well.
My wife and I have been going to the OJ's on Ellerslie for years. It is our local, and we feel like we have walked into the Cheers pub. Many of the staff know us by name and will just ask us if we are having our usual drinks and food. sometimes we change it up just for the fun of it or because we want something different.
the food and service is always good and my wife and I feel that we have gotten what we paid for.
We always ask if Sarah is in and if she is and has time she will come over for a quick talk.
i have recommended OJ's to lots of friends and family.
Menu was very limited. Didnt have any of the items i go there for
This place is great,food was excellent and service was quick. Not too crowded and noise not too loud.....manager was quick to respond to our request despite the mix in our food but overall is top stars.
Always love OJs but We missed the happy hour menu!
It was so nice to finally get out and eat in a restaurant for a change finally! It turned out to be pretty quiet, but with all the to-go orders being filled, our food still came out in less than 10 minutes and was as delicious as usual! With taking our time, we were there for less than an hour.
We had a great date night! The staff we very attentive and OJ’s has done a great job ensuring everyone is safe! Staff & public. We felt very comfortable eating out and can’t wait to go again!
It was great to be out again and OJs has definitely taken the necessary steps to make their customers feel confident they have our health as a top priority
I just missed not being able to order salmon burger. Lol
Service is awesome the food was good but the wings were terrible. My husband didn’t really care for the burger he got. I got the lettuce wraps and they were so good.
