Our family (table of 14) popped into Joe's for dinner on Saturday evening. This place is dark and gloomy. So dark that I almost needed to use my phones flashlight to read the menu. The service was ok... not good, bit ok. I found very little on the menu that I found appealing at all and finally settled for the... More

This is a good restaurant with fair value. But the acoustics are terrible. The ceiling is about twenty feet up and it's extremely noisy. Not for a quiet, romantic dinner. If you're in a group it's great to sit by the bar.

We stopped for lunch on the way to Tobermory. It was not busy but service was prompt and pleasant. My wife enjoyed a half club & soup. I had a excellent Fidel Cuban sandwich.

This restaurant is a nice place to discover, the food is great and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. This is not a fast food place, the ambiance is relax and why not enjoy a good conversation if you're not in a rush? The food was tasty and plentiful and the price is right. It's definitely a place to stop... More

The food was wonderful and the service was top notch. The waitress was very attentive and very friendly. Drinks were refilled before empty. Food was very flavorful. I had the Sundried Pesto Primavera The tarter chips with homemade dipping sauce are to die for. Wish I lived closer so I could eat here more often.

Joe Tomato's is an oasis of deliciousness in a vast desert of mediocrity. Wether you are in Grey-Bruce to stay, or just passing through, don't miss this place. The pizza is perfection, the pastas are authentic and lovingly prepared. Try the humongous Greek salad: you could not prepare a salad this big, this good, for this price at home. Top... More

We arrived half an hour early for our 1pm movie and headed next door for a quick bite. We asked our server how quickly we could get a soup and salad done, and she advised it wouldn't be a problem. My husband had the luxury lunch with french onion soup, caesar salad, and garlic bread, and I did regular soup... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel and after reading online that they offered a large Gluten free menu (not just salad and steak) we headed over.. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our server Deb was amazing. She made recommendations on the menu as well as local things to see/do. I was able to order and eat a... More

Good food at a reasonable price and good service. The free popcorn left a bit to be desired but our meals were good. The waitress was friendly and our food was out in a timely manner. The menu has a lot of options to choose from.
