I like the menu but the service and facility are abysmal.When my husband and I went for dinner, a child became sick to his stomach after dinner and vomited all the way from the table to the washroom. It was unlikely a result of the food but it was how the staff handled it that made the difference to us.... More

Being going there half dozen times, did think the food was so so, but they have a major problem with the black flies, my question is.... if they are in the dinning room, they are probably in the kitchen, something to think about!!! Can't wait for the patio next summer, it's not all negative

It is a cheaper place but the chicken wrap was all dry wrap and little filling , I left it. Must be better in the town but many students seem to go here.

The place was very busy since Acadia move-in was the next day. That slowed things down a bit but the service was friendly. The food was fine but it's always a letdown when you are presented with a menu that has items that are no longer available.

We stopped in for lunch and were surprised by the size of the menu. I had the muzhurga which was very good. Loved the homemade pita bread. Hubby had the donair which he enjoyed very much. Service was prompt and attentive. Was disappointed we didn't get to stop in again before we left town.

I've had food from here many times, and I can 100% say that the quality of their food is never the same each time I order. Most of the time I enjoy the scottskins (which is the only reason why I am giving them 2 stars) but when I order them for delivery, they are TERRIBLE!! They lack the quality... More

Went here for lunch with my wife. The place is a typical amerian eatery. My wife had the cheesburger and I had the Falafel. Both were really good, and the burgers looked home made and the falafel was really tasty. We sat outside in the sunshine on the patio. I would go here again.

Joe's is the place to go for good, plentiful food and great entertainment on weekends. Wolville being a college town you will find Joe's to be lively place to eat...but not annoyingly so. The staff are very friendly. It has the usual pub type tables and chairs and has a slightly raised section and a bar. It is right on... More

The restaurant itself was nice and had a good atmosphere and location. We were there during peak hours so the staff seems a little distracted attempting to manage the crowd. The meal was unenjoyable (fish and chip and mozza sticks). The fish batter was chewy and the french fries were cheap frozen fries. The mozza sticks were very dry and... More

This place, by far, has the worst service imaginable. Yes, it was steady but ... I too work in a restaurant and I could never imagine leaving a table of 7, two of them kids under 5, waiting for menus for 15 minutes. Or making them wait over an hour for food that was hardly mediocre. When asked the waitress... More
