Tried the Lebanese platter at Joe's last night. It was amazing all round. The Beirut salad was super-fresh, which is rare in these parts in the middle of winter. The chicken kebab was tender, the rice/lentil dish was tasty and beautifully cooked... the pita was fresh and chewy and the hummus was simple and perfect. I loved it all, and... More

Service was great; nice, friendly waiter (Nathan). Atmosphere was OK; could use a make-over. All 4 meals (burgers, pasta, pizza) were hot, good portions and tasty.

This hole-in-the-wall is a beautiful little diner-style eatery, with lots of basic-fare done up nicely, and tasty options. Lots for vegetarians.

I like the menu but the service and facility are abysmal.When my husband and I went for dinner, a child became sick to his stomach after dinner and vomited all the way from the table to the washroom. It was unlikely a result of the food but it was how the staff handled it that made the difference to us.... More

Being going there half dozen times, did think the food was so so, but they have a major problem with the black flies, my question is.... if they are in the dinning room, they are probably in the kitchen, something to think about!!! Can't wait for the patio next summer, it's not all negative

It is a cheaper place but the chicken wrap was all dry wrap and little filling , I left it. Must be better in the town but many students seem to go here.

The place was very busy since Acadia move-in was the next day. That slowed things down a bit but the service was friendly. The food was fine but it's always a letdown when you are presented with a menu that has items that are no longer available.

We stopped in for lunch and were surprised by the size of the menu. I had the muzhurga which was very good. Loved the homemade pita bread. Hubby had the donair which he enjoyed very much. Service was prompt and attentive. Was disappointed we didn't get to stop in again before we left town.

I've had food from here many times, and I can 100% say that the quality of their food is never the same each time I order. Most of the time I enjoy the scottskins (which is the only reason why I am giving them 2 stars) but when I order them for delivery, they are TERRIBLE!! They lack the quality... More

Went here for lunch with my wife. The place is a typical amerian eatery. My wife had the cheesburger and I had the Falafel. Both were really good, and the burgers looked home made and the falafel was really tasty. We sat outside in the sunshine on the patio. I would go here again.

Thank heyvinds
