We go there quite often. Pretty good, pizza. They own Al Fornos in Suffolk also. We call for take out at least once a month. Always nice servers. One of the owners is always there to say thank you.

Whenever I left Joe's I leave happy. Food is good, beer is good, portions are good, service is good. The place is clean. It's a little out of my way but always happy I made the trip.

One of the best places to get lunch in the area. The Italian food is decent but the food in general is good. Get the Lasagna.

I have been going to Joe's since I was at PDCCC. Delicious pizza, subs, and appetizers for casual dining. Lemon chicken and eggplant parmesan for an outstanding dinner. Several desserts to choose from such as cannoli, tiramisu, classic cheesecake, and lemon cello cake.

Joe's fast and friendly service is only surpassed by their delicious food! Joe's food is served quickly and always by good a pleasant server who keeps your tea glass filled! Why not visit Joe's today and discover why it is a favorite among locals.

The restaurant was empty, in fact we were the first in the door and it still took 45 minutes to get our entrees and we didn't even order appetizers! By far this is the worst Italian food we have ever eaten. The sauce for the stromboli was flavorless and seems to have been poured straight out of a can, in... More

Call in orders are accepted , and your order is ready in 15 minutes. This is not a fancy restaurant and probably needs to be remodeled.

Salad looked like it had been sitting out for 2 days. Food was good! I enjoyed that! What I didn't enjoy was our waiter! When ask for silverware he responded "when I can find it", when he brought our food and was holding the plates in his arms we didn't immediately tell him who got what so he told us... More
