    Papa Joe's consistently serves great food. I ordered the petite prime rib and the cut was enormous. Chicken Parm is always a family favorite as well.

    Great food and great service. They appear to have updated some of the interior, and it has really taken the atmosphere up a notch. Classy place and a fine meal.

    Quality of the food was great. The veal scallopini with a side of pasta was amazing. Even the house salad dressing was great. Live music really made the night.

    Food was awesome -especially the stuffed mushroom apps. We were in a booth in the bar on Saturday night. Server left a lot to be desired. No greeting - what would you like to drink was all. God help her if she smiled. Not that attentive. We ordered a bottle of red wine...never offered to have one of us taste it. Filled the first glass - I said my friend could taste it - filled the second glass...she didn't get it...then walked away. Their servers are usually awesome. This one left so much to be desired...wow.

    Impressed with speed and execution of service, that's because I'm a server. It felt rushed,but I totally understand that to stay on schedule,it was necessary for a holiday. Jaden was pleasant, professional and did a great job

    Papa Joes is a staple of good Italian food. In my opinion, the lasagna is like no other and worth the trip near or far!

    We enjoy going to this restaurant about three or four times a year. Service is always great and the quality of the food is excellent. We recommend reservations if you’re planning on going during a weekend. This place is always busy, which is a testament to their quality.
