    Our server Veronica was exceptional especially given that we had some very specific needs/requests. The food was prepared as ordered and was very good. We ordered chicken Francaise, eggplant parmigiana, salmon and lake Erie perch. All excellent.

    We always dine at Papa Joe's during the summer before attending theatre performances at nearby Porthouse Theatre. It's always good and service is excellent! I had the best swordfish I've ever tasted last weekend! It was so flavorful and reasonably priced. Papa Joe's never disappoints and we always enjoy our time there.

    Papa Joes has the best perch you can find in a restaurant. It is pan fried in lemon juice and butter. Outstanding!

    We were put in a room with a a birthday party and the noise level was awful. There were other rooms that we could have been put in. Not sure what management was thinking? Spinach cannolini was soaked in oil/butter and too much Alfredo sauce. I order this all the time and was very disappointed last night. It is one of our favorite restaurants and will be back.

    Such a wide variety of options are offered on the menu. We opted for several appetizers to start, all of which were incredible. We selected four extremely different entrees, and everything was delicious. The service was excellent, and because the portions were large, we didn't have room for dessert, so we went to their wine shop and market and bought several desserts to take home. It was the lovely evening we have come to expect from Papa Joe's.

    Our favorite restaurant in NE Ohio. The food, service and wine selection are without peer. This is how a restaurant should be. We’ve visited often over the past 10 + years and never disappointed. Would recommend to anyone who appreciates fine cuisine.
