Our food was great. I had the pad Thai and had plenty for lunch the next day. The crab rangoons are the best in central to northern Vermont that I've had, and I try them everywhere that has them. The waitress was cordial and helped us only when needed, not top notch service, but good. We had a lovely time.

This restaurant is perfect for couples - intimate seating, and not too crowded. The service is excellent! You can really see the attention to detail - our server knew where we were at in our meal at all times and was ready with refills almost before we even asked for them. The food is absolute quality! It's a shame we... More

Most of the reviews were positive and since it was close to where we were staying, thought we'd try it out. Honestly I could hardly eat it - a very basic dish with chicken and vegetables. We won't be going back.

Wonderful authentic cuisine. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Always a treat to see Joyce, the owner... she's there most nights and will greet people as they come in.

I've ordered take out from here a few times and it has always been ok. It was standard quality Chinese food not particularly bad or good. Service was prompt. The dumplings were a little better than the other items. The vegetables seemed little more than microwaved mixed vegetables. I'd probably go to one of the other local places first, due... More

My sister in law suggested this place and I was not disappointed at all. Nice, large varied menu that has something for everyone. Meals were ample, cooked fresh and very tasty. Service was very good. Would definitely recommend!

It was a busy night for a tuesday, but the server had it under control! We had the best General Taos meal and Beef and Broccoli. I loved the Fried rice, not over done or dry and just the right amount of soy sauce. I always walk away full and satisfied from Joyces! They have a full bar but lack... More

To be fair, we picked a very busy time for dinner at Joyce's on a Friday night. The kitchen was backed up and it took quite a while to get our food. I would recommend take out rather than eat in. The room was loud and a little chaotic. We ordered egg rolls, cold sesame noodles, and curry chicken. The... More

Joyce's is our "go to" place for a quick dinner out when we're too hot and tired to cook at home--like tonight. Best vegetable spring rolls I've ever had. The Beef with Broccoli is consistently good. This time I decided to try something different, so I ordered the Szechuan Shrimp and Scallops in Garlic Sauce. Plenty of crisp, tasty vegetables.... More
