Voted this place a one star because there wasn't a no star available. I ordered take out pork chow mein, rice, fried shrimp, chicken yuk on a stick, orange nasty dried up chicken, chickensalty in paper....Worse food I've ever wasted my money on...overly greasy Chinese food. The fried shrimp was overdone, shriveled up inside the thick, hard twice cooked oily coating of batter. Ate some and then decided to dump it in the trash...although the food was soooo bad it wasn't even trash worthy.

I am astounded at the bad review I read on here. I have never had such a problem with staff. I have been eating at Joy Luck for years and I absolutely love the place! The decore may not be the best, but its a restaurant not a museum or art gallery. The food is always fresh, and never stale, or unappetizing. I eat in here at least 8-12 times a year and always bring friends. Everyone has had a great experience and goes back. I actually have them on speed dial so I can call and make a to-go order. The staff at the front of the restaurant are friendly and always welcoming. The waiters are equally friendly and willing to assist you in making choices between all of the great menu items. Everything here is served family style, and I usually only order 3 or so dishes and we share. We can always take the rest home. If you have a larger group you can order a few more dishes, but remember it's a lot of food. :) Wonton soup here is great and so is the lemon chicken. Also, I recommend the Crab Rangoons: Best in town!

Pros: great food, friendly service, good value, generous portions

I took my son and mother here for Mother's day dinner because even the bad reviews stated it was good food. AND this is the truth. The atmosphere is quaint and relaxing. The service was absolutely wonderful. The only drawback(if you can call vast amounts a food a drawback) is that the table was almost too small for the GIGANTIC dinner plates they brought me and my mother. LOTS of food for the price. We took home four containers between the three of us.This place is a nice sit down Chinese food restaurant. More upscale than your typical take home joint. Good for an enjoyable night out with Chinese food. We - party of 3, were seated by the window where we got to enjoy the view of a very beautiful fountain

I've tried Joy Luck about 4 times and it's just ok. I think the prices are too high for the average food. Although the last time I went with co-workers, we ate family-style and someone ordered a tasty dish with spicy black beans in it. I wish I would have remembered the name of it!

I went to this eatery on Saturday July 12 th. Accompanied by my in-laws and my wife and 14 year old son. There were six in our party. Ages 101,(grandmother), 75, (mother-in-law), 78, (father-in-law), Myself,(57), Wife,(48) and our 14 year old son. When we arrived around 5:30 pm we were met with complete indifference by the staff at the front desk. I finally requested a table for six and waited 10 minutes while everyone of the Staff ignored us. We were finally seated in the extreme back of the Restaurant where the staff were having a ""party"" for wont of a better word. This group of young people were all in uniform and all drinking and all loud and useing very bad language. My Father-in-law finally told our server that this group was bothering us and could they stop cussing. I have never been in a place where the people in charge would have allowed there staff or patrons to act so bad. I was shocked and appalled as I was expecting to be treated to fine dinning, not a rowdy Biker bar. The food when it arrived was very good. I wonder if the owner knew what kind of actions his staff were exposing the patrons to. I was the only caucasion in our party, everyone is chinese which made the actions of the asian staff all the more surprising.\r\nWe come from a very, very large asian family and we shall not return.

Pros: Food

Cons: Service staff were rude, crude and freightening. Tables set for four. Seats were filthy.

I go to Joy Luck every time I come back home from San Diego. The food is great, I don't think I will ever get tired of it. The service is friendly and prices are reasonable also. Definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a nice Chinese restaurant.

We all like chinese food in our family and usually go to this restaurant when there is a huge family gathering, because they serve good food, not too expensive, so one of us can treat the whole family. I like their vegetarian dishes very much.On top of that, interior is very nicely decorated in authentic chinese style.
