For 35 years Joe Kohler has been serving up more than 20 made from scratch pies each day. From classic like apple, pecan, and pumpkin, to more inventive recipes with macadamia nuts, peanut butter, and coconut, the pies at Joseph's are worth going out of your way for. Each year the restaurant hosts a pie recipe contest, and winning pies have become part of the restaurant's regular dessert rotation.
Awarded by the Stillwater Gazette
The St Paul Pioneer Press voted Joseph's Family Restaurant number two among the "top Ten Family Style Restaurants" in the Twin Cities.
Joseph's annual pie contest is a favorite tradition of the Stillwater Valley. The contest invites bakers from all walks of life to create and submit a new pie for tasting and testing, and potential addition to the Joseph's menu for a limited time for the winner!
