Went to watch a play Mama Mia with my wife and four other women. They wanted a good place so Papa Joes, the best steak I've eaten in a long time with the works. So good that I didn't have room for dessert. My wife and sisters and friends said it was very very good.

This is a very popular restaurant. Used to be the Pondarosa. The selection of food is varied and you get a lot of food. The Price is right and the service was very good. Sherri was our server and she deserved the large tip we left.

Been here previous years and quite good, consistent and good service. This visit, poor service, very noisy, higher prices which I guess is to help pay for the renovations done - which has improved! My chicken was tough, vegetables over cooked and stuffing with butternut squash tasted like box stuffing and wet! Not impressed at all. We were a large... More

24 years and counting for this wonderful family run restaurant. Excellent food and excellent service. Variety of menu items. Fresh products and supports local. Award winning We are regulars and it is always 5 star. Top that off with a recent renovation that is really nice. Be sure to pick this one for dining local.

I visited this restaurant with a large group of friends. Service was impressive for a group of 16. Staff were friendly and aimed to please. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. I had a chicken caesar. Caesar was nice but unfortunately, the chicken was pretty dry. Wasn't inedible but when you have to put it on a separate plate to... More
