I have been going to Joyce's for a couple of years and have even recommended this to my friends. However, after this weekend, I'm not sure if I will go back for a repeat.

Pros: What limited amount of food that was available, it was good.

Cons: The food bar was about 40-50% empty and never was refilled and it was only 6:00. Our server took 15 minutes to get our drinks initially and then never came back to refill. After eating what food we could find, our server never came back to offer desert or even provide us with a check so after about 20 minutes of waiting we just walked up to the front and told the cashier what we had and paid for our meal. There were other people around us that was also looking for the same waitress who was no where to be seen. It probably was a good thing that the cashier did not ask us how we enjoyed our meal since I most likely would have provided her with an ear full. I have never had an experience like this and it makes me wonder if I will dare try again.

I have been going to Joyce's for years since moving the quality has been sliding. Any starches cooked there have no flavor (any cook knows you must salt the water/like seawater) before cooking. If not, no amount of salt aftewards is going to help. Totally lacking in taste. The day we went, no potatoes, no banana pudding etc. If they are going to charge for great food-then it needs to be great food. Right now it taste like institutional food ie: hospital, school or retirement home food. Very bland, please Joyce your food was once outstanding-please fix it.

Seemed like a nice place to stop and grap-and-go food for lunch.

Cons: Once food was purchased advised they didn't have any take-out cutlery and was unsure when they'd get any.
