We were told to go & try, so We did. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they had gluten free choices on their menu. Our meal was served promptly, & hot, well presented. Our server was well versed on their menu and very helpful. We have been back a few timed & never been disappointed.

Enough said - I've gone there several times... as a work group and taken my wife. The food is good - especially the Dynamite Tempura Shrimp appetizer! Lot's of tv's with the games on - so if it is a romantic night out... be discreet when taking a peek at the tv when they score.

Had 2 fantastic salads today here and they were delicious ! Also my other indulgence at Joes are the Fish Tacos which are always amazing. Wish they were in a better location with free parking during the week.

The food is consistently tasty, good variety and different from the usual bar/restaurant. Generally busy for lunch so I always try to be a little early.

Ate here on the 11th of March. Had the NY dog. Think that's what it's called. Well tasty. I know this kind of place is kinda lower end eating in Canada, but for a Scotsman, I loved this place. Great food. Great beer, and great service. Thanks Dani.

A casual lunch turned into "I'm not going back to work this afternoon". It just so happened to be my birthday too. But I certainly enjoyed OJs and will always go back.

It was a Friday night around nine pm when I arrived at OJ's, not sure if I was early for the evening, but I had no problem finding a place to sit. I only stopped for one drink and a plate of poutine, of which I enjoyed both. The waitress was nice, and took the time to talk to us... More
