with same great comfort food menu. Visited Papa Joe's to enjoy their Burger Love entry. This is the first time we have visited since their recent remodel. The restaurant looks great. The introduction of booths gives more privacy and the whole updated look is simply a pleasure to the eye. As usual all dishes ordered were delicious, generous and well... More

I am Celiac and travelling can be a nightmare when we want to eat out. Last weekend we decided to take a chance and try burger love while visiting PEI for a race. I checked with some fellow Celiac's in PEI and saw that they had good results with Papa Joe's and decided to try it. All of my meals... More

I always enjoy my visits to Papa Joe's. They work hard to create a combination of tasty dining and kind service. Their Burger Love was the best I've had to date, and certainly offered good value compared to the other I reviewed. Papa Joe's - always a consistent, enjoyable experience.

Definitely should be on everyone's restaurant list when in Charlottetown. Very friendly server, Lori. Food was excellent. Fresh and hot. The garden mix salad was super. Beautiful mix of greens and not too much lettuce. Home-style balsamic vinaigrette dressing (never to be found this good in a store) was marvellous. Pork Ribs were fantastic and lots of them too. Lots... More
