There is a great selection to choose from in the menu. I had never eaten barramundi before my visit to Joes fish shack and had been recommended it... More

Worst fish and chips ever! The snapper was tough, the chips were bland bland bland. Our order was incorrect. Need I say more?

Visited today, really wasn't impressed. I found the woman at reception rude, abrupt and disappointing! $19.95 for 5 king prawns in a bowl of 95% ice?! Rip off. Such a shame as I was looking forward to my lunch of prawns!

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch and noticed that Joe's had a outdoor counter with adjacent tables/chairs and umbrellas. The young man behind the counter was very polite, helpful with our choices and he makes a wicked cappucino!!! We did not have to wait long for our order to be ready, there is ample supply of condiments, cutlery,... More

Been here three times and the food is delicious and the prices are excellent given the value of the food - the quality and quantity and variety. Also love the decor which is fun and laid back and adds to the friendly atmosphere. the service is excellent as well. Definitely somewhere to go with friends and family when you're in... More

This, the latest of many visits over the years, once again did not disappoint, with visitors from country WA and South Australia for lunch during the week. Nothing about this place seems to have changed thankfully, the entrance being a little unusual with the two halves of a combi van still there, one being the till area. The dining room... More

Used to really enjoy everything about Joe's but after not having been for about 2 years have found the seafood platter to be very disappointed. Terrible oil taste made each piece of fish taste awful. All four of us agreed.

We dined here years ago with friends from overseas, and I had the best steak. I can now say it is still the best, in Perth! A staff member asked "How was your lunch?" I said it was amazing, he pointed out they had been serving the same cut Ribeye, from the same wholesaler for over 10 years! Come and... More
