if you like thin crust this is your stop for pizza made hot and fresh love it. try and save room for gelato freshly made also but you can take some to go if you are too full. forest fruits is my favorite.

We ate at Joe Jo's recently for a Moms and kids Door County weekend getaway. We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon and were seated promptly. We ordered 2 baskets of breadsticks and a pizza. The kids gobbled up the breadsticks and we asked for another order. The waitress who I presume from conversation was one of the owners, she... More

Sorry your experience wasn't up to your expectations. I don't think you were dealing with the owner as she left to see our newborn granddaughter. Hope you enjoyed your food. I also don't remember seeing you leaving because I will usually thank guests for coming in. Hope you'll give us another chance when in the area. Thanks More

Came here disappointed another restaurant down the road was not to open until May first on April 23 and thought "why not try out Joe Jo's Pizza and Gelato". Well, I must say it was a very pleasant surprise😀. I met Dick the owner, who very pleasantly greeted me. He explained the story behind the making of some of the... More

We were told to have pizza there, but I didn't find it anymore special than any other pizza place - average.

Thanks for giving us a try. Sorry we failed to impress you. Everyone has a different idea of a great pizza and I would never expect to be everyone's favorite. Thanks to your friend that recommended us. More

We love Joe Jo's for the awesome pizza and amazing gelato. It's a casual, family friendly restaurant with excellent customer service. Always a "must stop" when we are visiting Door County!

Sometimes when you are in a tourist area you don't always visit everything there. So when our names were drawn for a gift certificate from Joe Jo's at Northern Sky's winter concert, we decided that when we had guests we would try the restaurant (because it is open in the "winter"- limited hours.) And as one visitor noted - Spring... More

They do cracker crust pizzas. Not many menu choices compared to your typical pizzaria. You will like their gellato

Ephraim is a warm weather tourist town so in Winter you better keep your eyes peeled for anything open. Thank Goodness for JoeJo's Pizza. It's up the hill toward Sister Bay. Look for the big red building. Great pizza but I went with the Meatball Sandwich. Excellent. Plus, JoeJo's is one of the few places in Ephraim you can now... More

We were in Door County doing genealogy and needed somewhere to eat one evening after being out all day. Many places close for the winter, so we called around and found this place. Service was fast, and the bread sticks and pizza were hot and tasty. There was just the two of us, and a medium was more than enough,... More
