Burgers
Our first restaurant & bar opened in Marda Loop, Calgary, & even way back in 1997, it was comfortable, accessible & affordable. From the very beginning, OJ’s fell in step with exactly what it has always been about. A down-to-earth, down the street experience for all.

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.

    Good food, great service from our waiter Joe. The patio was great to sit on. Was quiet so was great for 9 of us to have a long awaited visit. Really enjoyable evening.

    Loved the Long Beach Fish Tacos. Had the Waves West Coast IPA from Kilter. It’s nice to have a selection of local craft beers on tap. Excellent service and a pleasant atmosphere.

    Our server made us feel like we were bothering her..it was an effort to talk to us. My beef dip was very dry & over cooked. Will not go back

    Original Joe's has been a go-to place for lunch out with friends pre-COVID and this was our first visit in 2-1/2 years. It was every bit as good as we remembered.

    Very good overall. Appetizers were excellent (Brussels Sprouts & Calamari) Mains were good (Fish tacos & Fish & chips) Fish tacos were a little bland but ok. Service was good. Will return.

    As if this writing, still have not received OpenTable points for dining, while every restaurant on OpenTable usually confirms points during the meal. The host said she didn’t have the tablet when we arrived and knew nothing about our reservation. We were seated in a decent place, until they decided to seat another table right next to us in a rather empty restaurant, so, that was awkward. Our server was excellent, and the food tasted very good. A few hiccups, obviously, but I’d give them another chance, especially since we all enjoyed our food.

    Our reservation was for 5 pm and even though we were there on time, it took a good hour to receive our food; possibly the shortage of staff was due to Covid-19. One person's tomatoe bacon soup was lukewarm and the forgot to bring a spoon for the Pacific Rim Bowl. We rate our waitress as been very friendly and professional.
