The atmosphere was nice. The service was good. The price was what I would've expected. The ice cream and toppings was very good. We were disappointed that there was not a salad bar. Also, there was soup on the buffet, but no bowls. Pizza was average, but they did have many to choose from. There wasn't any breadsticks. Another table... More

The combination of an new building,28 big flat screen TV's; an bar area to sit and eat; and less of a children's zoo makes Happy Joe's a much better place to go. Fast and friendly service is still there. The menu has greatly expanded. Try the prime rib on Friday or Saturday nights. I think you'll be pleased!

When I take my kids out or just go out with my husband I expect a certain atmosphere. Child friendly and quieter. This is not the place! They had a bunch of tvs all on different sports games. A bar. And hardly any games for the kids. I didnt care for it. The food was really good but expensive. Not... More

I was pleasantly surprised when a friend invited me over to the new Happy Joe's. Great food, service and a great tap beer selection. I had the 1/2 off apps and the wings were great. Definitely a new place to put on my list to go when in Galesburg.

We stumbled upon Happy Joe's looking for a place to eat. Loved the ambiance, it's a big restaurant/sports bar kind of place, totally family friendly, fortunately for us they had the NBA All-Star game on the TV's. The fries are awesome, they're coated in something so they're extra crispy. The pizza was a little unusual (we're from the Chicago area,... More

Taco Pizza at Happy Joe's is everything. It's all you need to know. (And the new location is a nice upgrade - I miss the nostalgia of the previous location, but they had remodeled long ago, so the new building is a welcome change.)

My husband and I ate here on nye when we stayed over night here. We loved it so we drove 50 mins to eat here a couple days later. It was around 7pm on a Tuesday and it was not busy at all, pretty dead actually. We had our baby with us and waiting 10 mins and no one approached... More

I really enjoy the updated location and look. They have more than 30 tv's trying to rival BWW for your game watching enjoyment. The pizza is good, they have an extensive beer list and the kids love the soft serve bar.

Happy Joe's Pizza has built a new building in town across from where it was located and it is exceptional. It has a new menu and with the same great food but more options! It has a fresh look and is much quieter than the other restaurant was yet it is still a fun place to take the family. My... More

We had Sunday lunch at the new Joe's Grill with high hopes which were dashed. We each tried sandwiches, none had very much meat on them. The rueben had more kraut than corned beef or cheese. The Italian beef was very average and grilled beef which is just wrong for an Italian beef. The kitchen was out of pulled pork... More
