Perfect home cooked style meals by a top notch Chef, and friendly service. The new renovations to the interior are very appealing.

My elderly parents go to place in Charlottetown. Senior friendly as you can drop people right at the front door with only a small step to overcome. The portion sizes are generous, the food has never disappointed, and the prices are reasonable. There are also a good selection of gluten free options. Suggest reservations if you are dining between 4:30... More

My parents always want to come here for special occasions - food is always good but would not be one of my top picks for eating in Charlottetown.

Good food. Obviously popular place due to lines ups, but quick seating and very very friendly. Menu is typical of a family-styled restaurant, starters, soups, salads, burgers, few main entres, good desert menu.

We got into Charlottetown a bit late and were looking for a decent, non fast food restaurant. The hotel staff recommended Papa Joe's and we're pleased we took their recommendation. The interior reminded us of a 60's diner and the food portions were reflective of the time period, generous and well prepared. The staff was great and had no issue... More

Papa Joe's is our favourite regular go to restaurant. First choice all the time unless we are changing it up. A favourite for 30 years. Great food, good menu and wonderful service always.
