This restaurant doesn’t disappoint. We started our meal with their version of fried cheese. It was one of the beat I’ve ever had. The breading was light and flaky and the cheese delicious. I had the stuffed shells. The portions were large, cooked just right,...More

Our hotel recommended Papa Joe's. Everything we ordered was delicious, and a fair price. There is a nice family atmosphere and our waitress was knowledgeable. She answered our questions and gave recommendations when asked. All-in-all, it was a delightful experience.

Papa Joe"s Italian Restaurant has been a family tradition for 30 years. Papa Joe has personally constructed a diverse menu to fit anyone and everybody's taste buds, and each dish is prepared to order 'justa for you'. Whether you are looking for an aged tender steak, fresh seafood, or are in need of a carb fix, we got it! From the beginning, Papa Joe has prided himself in using the freshest and most whole ingredients available. In fact, many of the herbs we use are picked fresh from our herb garden and all of our dough is made on premises with a healthy blend of semolina and stone ground wheat. Cheers!
