I went to Joe's a few months back with my basketball team, The meal was good and so was the drinks and the service. But the price of everything you get was pretty expensive and say that it should be a bit cheaper. The desert...there was good. I recommend to go there to eat. I will be coming back for sure.More

Visiting Wolfville during some lovely weather and wanted somewhere to have lunch outside. This place fitted the bill - huge choice on the menu and free refills on sodas was ideal! Had the donair poutine, a massive portion which kept me going all day.

It was terrible. We waited 1/2 hrs for food. Their so called gluten friendly came with crispy fries which contain flour. Our burgers were incorrect and when we pointed this out we just got a shrug. One order chose a side ceaser instead of fries....They brought it with fries. They then did bring a side ceaser but charged an additional $8. for their mistake. The only good part of the meal was that the waiter was nice. We will not return and we will definitely not recommend.More

We were in Wolfville (Aug 24th) for a wine tour and the place where we were staying mentioned Joe's and we were some glad they did!!!! From the time we sat down to the very last bite of food, it was great!!!! From the seats...on the patio, to the drinks and the food!! Not one complaint!! Must give a shout out to our server Lily!! Was right there every time we needed another drink or just to check in on us. We enjoyed it so much that we went back our last day there (4 day trip) for breakfast/lunch. The decor is something to view as well!! If you find yourself in Wolfville--This is the place to eat!!More

I had been to Wolfville a few times and had always passed this place by until I did a bit of research. This is a great spot for food, and had better food and portion sizes than the other trendy spot in town. Service was...good, meal came out quickly, restaurant has a good environment and you have the option to sit on the patio. Will definitely be coming back here from now on.More

Incompetent waitress to say the least. She was more concerned with calling each of us "hon" than taking and bringing our orders correctly. Two of the men wanted eggs benedict with different components (one with sausage, eggs soft; the other ham, eggs medium). Neither was...correct when they came out so she apologized and said if they took them as is she would reduce the price on our bills. My meal had homefries that the majority were burned black. She said she would show that to the cook. When our bills came they each included extra "mayo". When I asked what that was she said that was a mistake and had given me the wrong bill. She swapped with our friends who had the same showing! Oh my goodness! She agreed to take the bills back. Returned and when I looked at them there wasn't any reduction in the eggs benedict (her error). When I asked why she responded with "well I'm now allowed to discount the food because then I'll have to pay for it". Well had we know she was not telling the truth originally we would NOT have accepted the incorrect orders. I don't know her name but it was around 12 noon on July 16 so it shouldn't be difficult for your management team to figure out which waitress it was who served us. At the time I would have asked to speak with a manager but it was embarrassing to say the least to have a fuss. Terrible service!More

Stopped for lunch. I finally tried a Donair and hubby got the baked haddock. Both were very good!! Glad I tried the Donair and the haddock was almost more than he could eat. Service was a bit slow but nothing to make me not go...there again.More

We stopped in this place for a quick lunch. Our server Joe, was very friendly and attentive. We shared a club and fries and it was absolutely delicious. My husband was able to order non-alcoholic beer ( not always an option). It was a bit...cold inside so I would suggest bringing a sweater. Very clean, busy little spot, good atmosphere and prices were very reasonable. We would definitely come here again!More

Following a very exhausting run of a recent theatre production I directed, my exhausting and very hungry cast wanted food and drinks, we hit Joes and the Ultimate server RYAN spoiled us rotten. We were promptly seated, fed, watered, labiated and even though we were...late in the evening, the service was steady and friendly and the food was great as always! Thank you so much to Ryan for being friendly, helpful and accommodating to my starving pack of divas!!! We will be back!!More
