New to the area and was visiting. I had a few people reccomend this place to me. I went with my daughter to try this place out. The pizza was not what I expected! Overcooked, super thin and highly overpriced for the food you are...getting! I would not feed this to any of my family dogs! The food hit the garbage shortly after bringing it home! While being overcharged for greasy overcooked food is bad I wish that's all it was as placing my order the owner made inappropriate comments about my daughters chest! It was very disgusting! We are now nervous about walking downtown Pembroke next time we visit! I do not reccomend this place! If you're a female please don't go in there alone!!!More

I had heard and read amazing things about this pizza place, so I knew I had to order take out during my brief visit. The guy on the phone was very friendly, and took my order until it came down to the salad. Being in...a hotel, I don't have the luxury of bowls to mix a salad, so I always ask for dressing on the salad I was told no, not possible. I'm really confused as to why this wasn't ok, I asked for it and I am more than ok if my salad is slightly soggy, as a paying customer I don't understand why this was such a hard no, I mean you mix the salad for dine in, don't you? I ended up just getting a Hawaiian pizza and it was very good, would have really enjoyed a salad with it. I definitely recommend the pizza but be forewarned dressing on a salad won't happen for take out so maybe order one elsewhere.More

After watching a CTV news profile we called ahead and picked up an X-large pie. They were genuinely friendly and the pie was genuinely great. I love Renfrew County pizza places because they are never stingy with the cheese and this place was no exception....We'll be back.More

Wow. I am a adept of the keto lifestyle and I finally found a keto friendly restaurant when passing through Pembroke Ontario. Without being a purist or fanatic of the keto lifestyle, I know what I eat and what I don't. There's four kinds of...keto lifestyle "strict, High Fat Low Carb, moderate and dirty keto. This last one isn't a bad thing at all. It just means that it uses some ingredients that are borderline to the recommended things. Well this restaurant is excellent but uses the "dirty keto" philosophy. (rice flour instead of almond flour or cauliflower and cheese). The staff is amazingly enthusiast and friendly. The food is of good quality, freshness and well prepared. For take out only, they even took time to explain the menu, and the ingredients. I really appreciated this. This place is really worth trying. I truly recommend. Psst. Here's a secret... try the "keto balls" desert. Edible heaven for the mouth.More

Well, I am really not one to write bad reviews but but you know the saying “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me! We decided after a very difficult day to order pizza and decided to give Joes another try....We already had a credit on file because of the last fiasco when we ordered. We ordered an Xlarge Rita pizza with thin crust. The pizza arrived more than an hour later stone cold, no thin crust and topped with pepperoni and mushrooms, not quite sure what happened to the bacon, oinions and peppers? Very disappointed...More

We love buying from (and supporting) Joe's Family Pizzeria! We haven't come close to trying everything on their menu but everything we have tried has been delicious. My fav pizza is their 'Big Joe Mufferaw' ... if you've never tried dill pickles on a pizza...then this is a MUST for you! I swore I would never eat it but once I tried it I was hooked! Our 17 yr old would suggest you try their Maple Bacon pizza as that's his fav but he loves the Big Joe as well. They've also got great fries and onion rings and our daughter just loves their poutines. Wether you live near by or just here for a visit, I highly recommend you give them a try ... they have something for everyone and I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed 😁More

Our family was in town just for the night staying at a hotel and we wanted to go out for pizza and snacks. I called and asked if they had dine in and they said yes. Brought our family of 5 in and there were...only 3 small booths, no highchairs. No table service. They asked for my phone number. The radio speaker was blasting right behind our table. All food was passed to us one item at a time in takeout containers so i was up and out of my seat about a dozen times, offering akward apologies to the waiting takeout patrons. The guy working randomly called my cell while we were waiting for the rest of our food...he seemed to be generally confused. The Greek salad was lettuce, feta and canned olive slices only. Dressing was good. My poor sons fries took about 20 minutes they were the last thing to come out. Wings were served with cold sauce on the side. Entire centre of pizza was a complete soggy mess and im pretty sure they put anchovy paste in their sauce. We were not offered plates, forks, ketchup, napkins, had to ask for everything. I understand there is a pandemic, but this is obviously NOT a family restaurant, and they certainly don't offer dine in. I was prompted to leave a tip when i paid before receiving the food, not sure why i left one, cause i did a lot of the work. An advertisement came on the Radio for Nick's pizza and we kinda wished we'd gone there instead....More

First time eating here with my son and was very excited to try it as the reviews are very good , we got a slice each and poutine, they insisted the poutine was the best in the valley and being a poutine lover I have...to say it was good but far from being the best in the valley, maybe the best in Pembroke?? The pizza was absolutely delicious and the staff were amazing, we will definitely return for their pizza 😊More
