The guys seemed to enjoy their steaks. One business assocaite had the fish tacos. I had the spicy chicken sandwich with fries. We all had a great meal and good service.

Located pretty close to the Sheraton Cavalier, Joey is a favourite destination for out of town visitors. I had a friend from Toronto in town and we agreed to get together for a few brews and some food. There are many choices in the area but Joey, which has been around for ages, was a good choice.

We like the bar area and, at some point in the past, they must have renovated to make the area a little quieter so that you could have a decent conversation without having to yell at each other.

At around 6pm on a weekday, we arrived and immediately found a good spot in the bar area. We each ordered a draught beer, which came pretty quickly, and tossed around the idea of appetizers, but decided that meals alone was what we were going to do.

I had a paella, with lots of shrimp, lots of rice and very tasty, although I think a tad overcooked since the rice was a little crispy on the edges. My friend had a pretty sloppy burger which he enjoyed as well.

I was driving so I had a coffee, which came quickly. The only downside was that I had to ask several times for a coffee refill, and only got one on my third ask.

Good place, good vibes, good food, service a little spotty is how I would describe Joey on Barlow.

Food was awesome and presentation beyond expectations; however, service was slow and that's probably due to the number of staff on duty. None-the-less it's a place to return to.

Met a friend here for dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the great service, atmosphere and delicious experience. Been to a Joeys before many years ago in Vancouver and had not been back since it was just okay. Barlow location staff were great and very helpful from the moment I walked in the door. Helped me find my friend, super friendly, personable, quick service, very attentive and knowledgable. Yellowfin salad was delightful and good portion size. Wine list was good. Friend enjoyed her roast chicken meal which looked amazing. We shared a Baked Apple Pie, soooo good! Will definitely come back to this location. Easy to find and plenty of parking.

I really enjoyed the time and space the server gave us so that I could catch up with an old friend but we had so much space that she forgot to take our order and then forgot to come back with the bill. I loved the food though. really really good.
