My husband and I have eaten here several times over the past few years. We have always found the food good, with good portions.

Have been going to OJ's for years. It has deteriorated to be below average. Used to be great food, good prices and fun atmosphere. Now it's terrible food, reduced portions with higher prices, taken favourite items off the menu and their excuse is "corporate". No excuse for poor customer service, especially in the hospitality business. What shallow management when they... More

You will not receive the same meal as take out that you would for dining in. Smaller portions and no sides that normally come with the meal. They're happy to charge you the same price though :)

So, the first time we stopped here to eat, we had our son with us and found out they don't accept minors, so that was disappointing. This time it was just hubby and I, so we decided to try it again. The food was mediocre, the hamburger patty was straight out of the freezer and not worth it. The best... More

We were frequent diners here and unfortunately the last couple of times service was awful. Long wait to order, long wait for the beverages, no attention after we got our food as to whether we needed anything and so surprise another wait for our bill. Two hours for dinner was too long! Food was good but service ruined it!

We frequently visit Original Joe's in St. Albert but our recent visit left me very disappointed. I usually have the steak salad with blue cheese dressing and love it. This time the steak was inedible. I sent the steak back and asked if they could cook me another which I took home. It was a little better but extremely chewy... More

We had Shrimp tacos,Miso salmon salad. The salmon tasted precooked and slightly rewarmed. Lettuce and shredded carrots tasted like they came from a bag, not fresh. Shrimp tacos just not as expected. Seemed thrown together, shrimp not hot or warm. Have eaten here many, many times and always consistent. Disappointed seems as though the quality has slipped Come on you... More

I had the Morning Glory Breakfast. Service was excellent and the food was delicious! The food was delivered to our table quite quickly as well. Very impressed. Would definitely go back for brunch again!
