Good food , great service but ask for wines. Specialty drinks like Gimlet or Cosmos are not their forte. Portions are very generous and the restaurant is very nice and cozy. Lots of parking and very easily found.

Another couple of unbelievable meals!! This place is so special that we now make our airline reservations based on access to the restaurant for lunch both coming and going from SYR. A quick 12-minute trip from the rental car pick up and you're there. This time we got the meatball and stuffed ravioli special and the Lebanese salad with grilled... More

The food selection is very good and all of the food is excellent. The wait staff is very professional and knowledgeable regarding the menu and wine selections. I highly recommend this establishment.

My favorite restaraunt. I've been there 50 times over last 15 years and always had a wonderful meal. I've recommended it to many friends, family and work mates. Everything from the fried calamari, to the baked sea bass and then finishing touches of a flaming banana foster. It's just wonderful.

The service was great and the food was very satisfying. They accommodated us when additional people arrived with no problem and handled our various orders with ease. Will go back again!

Lots of tasty food available from a very wide menu, but probably not going to be well appreciated by lovers of authentic Italian food. That said, the veal and shrimp dish with pasta and a rich Alfredo sauce that I chose was tasty and filling. More like hearty American fare than lean Italian cuisine. Personally, I would not bother with... More

Never been disappointed when we've dined at Joey's! Lunch or dinner! Service is always amazing as well. No surprise this restaurant has been around for so long. There are too many great dishes on the menu to choose just one that I love.

Good food and service but nothing outstanding. Decent drinks for mature guests. Nothing special for desserts, quantity is the main characteristic. Challenging atmosphere.
