When I say, well rounded, I don't mean how you will look when you leave but how well rounded their menu is. They have a great selection for every pallet. Lebanese, Canadian, seafood and more. Very clean and well appointed restaurant. They always keep it...up to date. The food is excellent and the staff are really accommodating. We had a member of our party who has some very particular dietary needs and the wait staff were more than willing to help us with that need. Of course, what would a review be without a little criticism. I found that the wait time from order placement to receiving our meals was quite slow. Also, although the desserts were very good, they were a little overpriced. All in all a great place to dine and catch up with old friends.More

My wife and I were at Papa Joe’s yesterday, December 15, 2021 for her Birthday Dinner. There was a special Pre-Christmas “Mediterranean Seafood Stew” on the menu. I ordered that and it was FANTASTIC. Server Jolene was excellent with her menu knowledge and her service....We also ordered “Island Blue Mussels” as an appetizer for us to share and WOW……. also excellent. My wife had “Mediterranean Salad with Chicken” and she enjoyed it. When in-or-near Charlottetown ……. Ya gotta go ta Papa Joe!More

We were looking for a place to eat at Prince Edward Island and we checked Trip Advisor and decided to try it after taking a peek at the menu. Our server Darleen was so nice, food was beautifully presented, we had the Blackened Salmon and...the Ají Tuna, we liked it so much that we decided to go again the next day and I tried the rib eye it was nicely seasoned and just perfectly cooked to my taste, my husband had the salmon again. When I left I forgot my cell on the table, and Darleen went out of the restaurant to hand it to me. Definitely if you want to have a nice dinner, eat at Papa Joe’ s.More

We have had a summer place here for a few years. Have passed Papa Joe's many times and thought it was a pizza place. We were in for a huge treat. It is anything but pizza. It is 5 star dining but family friendly and...not overly priced. Had the homemade turkey soup as an appetizer. Amazing!! We also had the meat loaf and the short rib. Both were excellent. The owner came by and introduced himself and we were very impressed how friendly all the staff were. This will definitely become a regular place to eat for us. Fantastic family run restaurant.More

This is not my first time at Papa Joe’s however to food and the service is so consistent, I wanted to make sure I gave a shout out. I have tried several dishes and without exception the food was delicious and prepared perfectly. This particular...visit I had the rib eye steak and it melted in my mouth. I wish I had gotten our server’s name…he was fantastic. I’m not sure if he was an owner but he was the perfect blend of friendly and welcoming, attentiveness and efficiency. Really made our visit memorable. We were there Friday Sept 17 around 6 in the bar area so to the owners, you have a great employee in this young man.More

Papa Joe's is a family owned restaurant that has been around for a lot of years. I know they have a following of regulars that dine here. Probably because the food is good, the service is great and they have a warm and comforting atmosphere....It is hard to explain but I feel at home when I come to this restaurant. I have always been pleased with my meal and the main coarse prices are reasonable. I recommend this restaurant for all occasions that you choose to dine out for. If I was to critique anything it would be the pricing of their desserts. Dont get me wrong, the desserts here are very good but they charge between $8-10. For a piece of anything. No matter how good a sweet treat is, pricing needs to be based on what the product is, how it is presented and you base it proportionally on the prices of your main courses and the class that your restaurant is in. Factoring in all these reasons, their desserts are too expensive. All in all Papa Joe's offers you a nice time out.More

We have been dining at Papa Joe's for years...it all began when it was our go to place while on the road curling. Over the years, I must admit, the interior started getting tired looking but the food and service remained top drawer...then a few...years ago came the makeover...wow! stunning new decor to go along with their great food. Family- owned food experience which has never disappointed!More

Papa Joe's is an island landmark restaurant. They have been around for a long time and I believe they will still be around for years to come. They offer a mix of Canadian, maritime and Lebanese fare that will surely suit everyone in your party....The restaurant itself is clean and is always kept new looking. They never let the interior look dated. The service is very prompt and the food is excellent. Even during the current "panic demic" they make you feel at home and not like you are carrying the plague. I have found that some restaurants and businesses are treating their clients and customers in such a way that you feel like a specimen that is highly infectious. Not cool with me. These type of places to not get my hard earned dollars. Papa Joe's do not treat their customers like this and for that they get my full approval.More
