We waited out a short rain shower here and had dinner. We both had the spaghetti. Service was a bit slow and we did not get our water filled as quickly as we would had liked. Dinner was average. Our spaghetti at home is better.

We found Ge-Jo’s by accident but we’re glad that we did. The Green Chili pizza was great and the service was even better. Friendly faces all around.

If you love anchovies you have to try Ge-Jo's classic. Amazing! Great outdoor sitting as well as inside dinning.

We enjoyed the pizza with a group of friends. The service was great and friendly and drinks were on point. My salad was cold and fresh all in all a good time. B

You can eat inside or outside. We chose to sit outside near the lake. There are parrots in a large cage outside. Fun to see. Lunch was good. This is a good spot for family’s or groups of any age. There was a large group...More

This restaurant switched owners and now it's not managed well. I asked for a need coke because the syrup wasn't strong and they refused to replace the syrup. It was our anniversary, so it was pretty disappointing. The waitress wasn't respectful or polite as well....More

Ge-Jo's pizza is wonderful especially the house special! It is rather expensive but well worth it! The location is right by the city park with a view of the lake.
