Really love coming to joes, always great food and service. Atmosphere is great staff is friendly. Only thing I don't like is your spinach dip always seems sort of watery.

Can't go wrong here. Some people have reservations about this restaurant, but it comes down to taste. I love Italian, and their panzerotti is my go to here. My wife loves their tortellini (minus the green onions). Great atmosphere and great pre-dinner popcorn on arrival (just a little salt for taste...mmm). Great place to stop before catching a movie, but... More

We were there for a family get together and had reserved the back room. Another family were there so between 18 of us and about the same for them, it was a noisy place. This was not so bad as we were catching up with our family and not looking for a cosy atmosphere. We did not find the room... More

Our family (table of 14) popped into Joe's for dinner on Saturday evening. This place is dark and gloomy. So dark that I almost needed to use my phones flashlight to read the menu. The service was ok... not good, bit ok. I found very little on the menu that I found appealing at all and finally settled for the... More

This is a good restaurant with fair value. But the acoustics are terrible. The ceiling is about twenty feet up and it's extremely noisy. Not for a quiet, romantic dinner. If you're in a group it's great to sit by the bar.

We stopped for lunch on the way to Tobermory. It was not busy but service was prompt and pleasant. My wife enjoyed a half club & soup. I had a excellent Fidel Cuban sandwich.

This restaurant is a nice place to discover, the food is great and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. This is not a fast food place, the ambiance is relax and why not enjoy a good conversation if you're not in a rush? The food was tasty and plentiful and the price is right. It's definitely a place to stop... More

The food was wonderful and the service was top notch. The waitress was very attentive and very friendly. Drinks were refilled before empty. Food was very flavorful. I had the Sundried Pesto Primavera The tarter chips with homemade dipping sauce are to die for. Wish I lived closer so I could eat here more often.

Joe Tomato's is an oasis of deliciousness in a vast desert of mediocrity. Wether you are in Grey-Bruce to stay, or just passing through, don't miss this place. The pizza is perfection, the pastas are authentic and lovingly prepared. Try the humongous Greek salad: you could not prepare a salad this big, this good, for this price at home. Top... More
