We came on a Sunday night and it was half off wine bottle night. I had scallops which were delicious and hubby had meatloaf which was yummy too. Service was very good. We will definitely be back.

We decided to split the meal tonight! Excellent scallops and mushroom salad. Crab dip also wonderful. We have loved this restaurant for years. We do not eat out very often. So glad we picked Joy Bistro again! We will always come back!
