I have been coming to Papa Joe's for many years. It's always consistent. Good food, good service and not over priced. I will be returning soon.

We made reservations for 7:30 on a Sunday and was seated promptly for our Valentine's date. John was our waiter and he suggested a couple of dishes when asked. We went with the chicken francaise and fettuccine Alfredo. Both were amazing! And the Tuscan bread was fabulous! John was friendly and humorous. We will definately be back!

My husband and I went for our 1st Valentine's dinner as husband and wife. Our rehearsal dinner was at Papa Joe's last October, so it's a sentimental place for us. We don't go out to "nicer" places like this often, so it's a special treat. The salad was fresh and crisp, the bread warm and tasty. The dinner (filet mignon) was cooked to perfection. This place has the right ambiance, our server was knowledgeable and the service was great. We will be back again!

Went here for my birthday. Dinner was good. Server was very new. Had to ask for more wine — twice. Was overcharged. Salads were supposed to come with the meal but we were charged extra for them

Always yummy! Service was lacking last night. Jackie was non-attentive and slow. It took saying something to get water refills and additional drinks. We weren’t in a hurry and it was a very yummy dinner, just feel the service should of been more attentive.
