Nice atmosphere, service was very slow, food was ok. We had the burger and it was good except for the tomato end that was on the burger, not the bottom but the stem end and it was so thin it only had one side, this is a basic that was overlooked. We also shared the lettuce wraps and the sauce... More

Original joes has great food, it's affordable and they have a very informative website for each of their dishes. We ordered the jalapeño bacon Mac and cheese and their steamed mussels. Both delicious. A great restaurant to hang out with friends.

For the past five years I have enjoyed this bar/restaurant. The food has always been good if not extraordinary. The staff used to be friendly and helpful. Who ever they had on today on the patio really didn't want to be working today. Not sure I will be back.

I've been here quite a few times. In general, the food has always been good (Fish Tacos, and Kona Burger are winners). The service has never left me wanting more and the tables are situated nicely from each other. The parking and the fact that they don't take reservations is a little saddening though. All in all, good food at... More

Original Joe's are usually one of my favourite restaurants. Unfortunately this experience was way below par. We ordered the Fish Tacos and Butter Chicken. Both came cold. My companion ate her tacos, but I asked for my Butter Chicken to be warmed up. A half an hour later I asked the hostess (could find our waitress) to check on my... More

Great snack and bevy on patio on a great sunny Saturday. Busy place with good service. What more is there to say. A great end to a wonderful day.

Service was good as usual, the server was friendly and efficient. However, on a cold January day in Edmonton when you are ordering soup you want it hot. The restaurant was not busy at all when we were here and the soup was barely warm, disappointing. In addition, they need to cut back on the amount of side bread, too... More

Reasonably priced food, generous servings, tasty. Pub atmosphere. Gets noisy as the evening progresses. Parking is a problem. Waitress was efficient but not overly friendly. There were some people waiting to be seated around 7:30 pm so arrive earlier to avoid the wait.

I tried Original Joe's on the recommendation from a colleague. Their Quinoa Mushroom Burger was very good. From a choice of five sides, I chose the broccolini and slaw - both were yum.
