Dined here for dinner on a Sunday evening & it was packed with happy customers. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant. I enjoyed my meal, which was served promptly and was well presented. Many of the customers appeared to be locals. This is...a good stop for a meal.More

Very friendly staff, large portions, creative takes on old favourites. If you love garlic, try the zataar fries - middle Eastern seasoning with garlic sauce. Good value as well.

Obviously, a local favorite. This is a wonderful menu, the calamari was homemade and battered and fried to perfection, the salad was fresh and delicious and the haddock was good. Ask for the fries well done— the sweet potato fries came out great. A big...thank you to DENNNY, our waitress, who was so very accommodating.More

Had lunch at Papa Joe's during a recent trip to Charlottetown. Came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. We were a group of five and everyone enjoyed their food. Pasta Bolognese, fish and chips, turkey club and liver, bacon, onions and gravy. You have to try...the zatar fries. So good! Waitress was so friendly and amazed us by remembering all our orders without writing it down.More

Friday evening after a beer at the pub, and we decided to go out for a meal. Papa Joes is always guaranteed to satisfy and accomplish an amazing evening of food, service and exquisite cuisine and service.

Sunday night so I knew it would be busy. Couldn't get in at 630pm but came back an hour later and found a seat. The place was hopping! This is a popular family restaurant - good menu, fair prices and generous portions. They had a...roast turkey dinner ($20) this evening which was tasty and quickly served. The folks running this place sure know what they are doing. A nice change from fast food places or high end expensive venues.More

I continue to return to this restaurant for my favorites every time I am on the island. The staff are lovely, service is speedy, they accomodate Gluten Free very well (I have celiac but they accomodate it very well, never any issues) and the food...is AMAZING! Favorites so far include: Seafood Chowder (super flavorful and so much seafood in this, it fills you right up!), Mussels (always yummy and fresh), the Blackened Salmon (15/10- I crave the potatoes now all the time.. so good; the salmon is always perfectly cooked and the plate is always very well presented-even if it's takeout!). I will be back many more times in the future but highly recommend for anyone who wants a tasty, hearty meal. In particular, anyone with Celiacs or gluten sensitivity. Come check it out, you won't regret it!More

Incredible food but also incredible desserts! Their dessert menu caters to all sweet tooth’s and the prices are reasonable for the quality dessert you’re getting. I enjoy going here simply for a nice dessert and coffee sometimes, though the food is always superb as well....This time I got the chocolate brownie dessert and it didn’t disappointMore

My wife and I did another visit to Papa Joe's and it continues to be a GREAT place for great meals. I had the Seafood Bouillabaisse and it was 10000000% Super-Excellent. Carol had PJ’s Caesar Salad with Pan-Seared Salmon as the add-on and she also...said it was Super-Excellent. Another; server Brett was an excellent server. His knowledge of the menu, etc. was great as was his personality and friendliness. In-terms of the menu; it showed prices in even dollars and nothing ending in the 99¢ thing. That is the way prices everywhere should be shown. The 99¢ thing is ridiculous. To Everyone at Papa Joe's, keep up the great work !More

We have been enjoying every experience Jo Jo Jowe have had as loyal customers of Papa Joe’s. You could always count on consistency. My husband ordered a steak sandwich this time. It was so rare there was red juice everywhere. And the grissle was left...on. It was gross. We were really frustrated and disappointed. We picked up our order and took to friends party 30 mins out of town 👎👎More

We dropped in on a busy Tuesday evening about a week after hurricane Fiona hit P.E.I hard, and Papa Joes was open and happy to serve. Attentive service, very good lobster roll and bouillabaisse with tomato sauce that had good punch to it and lots...of seafood and potatoes. A fine experience overall.More
