I was meeting a good friend for dinner. We have visited this location on more than one occasion. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Appetizers are always hot, fresh and cooked to perfection. Soups are hot and flavorful. Main courses are filling and you never walk away hungry. Prices are reasonable. Great restaurant and a definite must try !

We met friends for a dinner/night out and did not regret our choice of destination. Service was very prompt and friendly, food was tasty, the salads fresh. A few more beer types on tap would be welcome.

I don't usually review chain restaurants, but a bunch of us have suppers there ocassionally. We are a group with various tastes, and Original Joe's menu has something for everyone. For me it is the butter chicken. You do not find it on a menu very often. The butter chicken they serve is outstanding. Rich and creamy with the right... More

Neat little place on the corner of two very busy streets. Bright clean open restaurant with a bit of outdoor seating makes for an attractive meeting place for a bit of dining. Well laid out seating offers distinct dining / bar areas that will meet your dining and chatting needs. Outdoor seating is quite exposed to the weather so windy... More

Style over substance here - we've been to a few of these locations, but the one on Kenaston has been the one most visited. The fare is substantial and nicely done - the wings are nice, and the selection of beers is acceptable. The servers are what you would expect from a place like this - nice looking ladies and...

Since it was a nice evening out we would go on the patio. Tables were both broken and worn out. Food was ok. Not impressed with food. Service was good but it took forever to get our order. Won't be back. Don't recommend

We ordered the wings with bbq sauce and the nachos to share..service was fast, friendly, efficient, prices seemed reasonable.One nice touch is the availability of beer tasters which allows small samples of their selection of beer.. The wings came lightly sauced as requested - quite good actually. The nachos came with chunks of red pepper, raw onion and chunks of... More
