Burgers
Our first restaurant & bar opened in Marda Loop, Calgary, & even way back in 1997, it was comfortable, accessible & affordable. From the very beginning, Original Joe’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 Original Joe’s beer. So, come sit at our bar without having to lowers yours.

    Lunch with a buddy. We each ordered French onion soup and shared the dry ribs and Gyoza. Delicious and plenty of food. Friendly service.

    Food was tasty. Menu nicely varied. Service pleasant and efficient. Were able to be seated at a table that was somewhat apart from the other diners and, therefore, quieter, which was good because a couple of people at our table are hard of hearing.

    Overall good experience. Happy hour ends at 5. Appetizers are a little pricy but tasty. Seemed kind of loud . Had a booth so we could talk but if across the table too loud to hear. Servers were pretty good, polite and nice.

    Everything time we go it’s just a great overall experience from atmosphere to food to the great services! Never have had a bad experience here and the food is amazing! The dynamite shrimp are the best things ever and I hope they never go off the menu!

    Your site allowed me to make a reservation online but when I arrived your server said there was no reservations. Please correct this in your system.

    Steak was not done properly!! Redid it and took it off the price of the meal for us. Still, would have like to enjoy the whole meal with my wife instead of waiting!!

    It was great to be in a restaurant / bar during these strange times. OJ's has lots of space and it well laid out. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Food is always good and plentiful. It was quieter than usual due to seating restrictions but that was nice as it was lunch hour and we wanted to chat.

    Had to ask for the music to be turned down 3 times. None of the staff seemed happy about my request, even after a explained I had a hearing problem and the volume of the music was preventing me from hearing my guest. A table across the room overheard my request and agreed it was too loud and also asked the staff to turn down the volume. The food was delicious and the service was fast and efficient however the noise level ruined it for me along with the response from the staff...no apology or concern...just a blank stare, eye roll, accompanied by...I’ll see what I can do and then nothing was done until I continued to press for a remedy.
