Top Sirloin Steak
Tender veal slices sauteed with mushrooms in a creamy Marsala sauce
New outdoor dining works fairly well--not many tables, and right by the driveway entrance, but full menu and good enough overall.
We had a group of 5 and they put us at a round table which was awesome for us to be able to talk around the table and include everyone. The food was delicious and the service was great. We also weren’t rushed to leave when we were done eating.
Great all the way around
Great value, fresh Italian market on other side of building. Food has always been great. Eclectic menu, always a few specials. Large room for private events.
Love the atmosphere , the food is excellent and the people are awesome . A must try !!!!!
They do a great job and take good care of you.
Stacey is the best! She is the main reason we come
Totally worth the dining experience!!!
Love Papa Joe's. Never disappointed with service or food. Always very good and the servers are always right on top of everything.
Dinners were very good -- lobsterfest and cashew-crusted trout. Felt very safe with the way our table was separated from other diners, but would have felt somewhat less so with a booth. They were all in use back-to-back. It seemed a bit crowded given the pandemic issue. Our server and staff was most accommodating and friendly. It was a pleasant evening.
Papa Joes did a great job with booths and social distancing. Felt very comfortable and safe. My wife enjoyed her rack of lamb, and clams. And you can’t beat the value-priced bottles of wine. A very good night- my wife wants to go back- soon!
More food than you could ever imagine! Made from scratch when you order, extremely delicious. Their deli even has take home and heat entrees.
Meal and service was fantastic. The level of volume on music was awful, as was genre of music.
The Lobster Bake was delightful with everything done to perfection. Good filet, although slightly overcooked. Chicken marsala was quite good. Could have been warmer when served. But taste was great.
Dine here often and for quite some time. Never disappointed. Food is prepared with care and the serving staff is experienced and friendly.
Great food and great company. Cheers!
Always good food!!
Our meal was excellent as always. The steamed clams were great too as an appetizer.
All was wonderful.
Been going there for a lot of years. Service is great, food is great, and ambiance is great.
Host was so nice and welcoming. Waitress was very helpful and knew her stuff. Will definitely come back.
Always enjoy the excellent food and service! Papa Joe’s is one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Northeast Ohio.
Nice place the waiter’s don’t rush you of course the food is always good
Delicious food and great service. Papa Joe’s is always a winner!
We treat ourselves to Papa Joe's once or twice a year. The service is ALWAYS fantastic. This last time we brought friends that had never been and they loved it too! Natalie was our server, we've had her several times and she is great!
Wonderful evening! Piano music, ambience and outstanding food. Chicken Francaise - amazing as always and Sirloin August special was out of this world. Ended with brownie sundae that is truly the best. Relaxing place where you can actually enjoy & talk. Will definitely return soon.
Papa Joe’s has arranged the restaurant and bar area so that people can feel safe, yet enjoy the great ambiance, drinks, food, and dessert that we love. Service is still outstanding and the staff is always friendly and engaging. There is not a single item on the menu that you could go wrong with! Thank you for always making each trip in so worth the hour drive!
Consistently good food, service and value in a comfortable atmosphere.
Safe place for wife and friends to have dinner or lunch. Thanks for their respect and good servers.
Fabulous lasagna dinner and tiramisu dessert. He recommend going back
We enjoyed our dinner --- appetizers, entrees and desserts. The wait staff was excellent. Wish there was more cheese is the lasagna as it was a bit skimpy on this visit. Still, we will be back!
This place is the gold standard for all criteria applied to the fine dining experience from the parking lot to the kitchen. Beautifully landscaped grounds, top-notch service (Mel, our server, a true professional), food (including housemade white French dressing) was amazing! Second time we’ve chosen Papa Joe’s when coming to Akron and the experience seems to get better every time.
Celebrated a birthday. Melanie was an excellent server! Food was excellent and great portions. Thank you!!
Papa Joe’s never disappoints 😊
Excellent food, service and value in a nice and quiet atmosphere. Very good attention to Covid safety procedures.
Good food at a good value
This was our 18th anniversary dinner. The food was amazing the service was great just all-around an amazing experience!
Everything is great.
I ordered spaghetti w/ meat sauce and mushrooms. My daughter had chicken francaise. We both thought we wouldn’t be able to eat it all. After tasting it, we knew we would. Excellent flavor and good portions.
Jackie was great. Food was perfect. Like the remodeling
They’re baaaaack! Like they were never gone. All now plexiglass dividers and super cleaning protocol. Meal was fantastic. Ribeye and trout. Local gem open and serving it up great.
