After checking out all the Freo boardwalk eateries, we settled on Joe's 'shack', actually a large eatery. Our main selection criterion was grilled, non-breaded fish ... not offered by many places. The skewer with shrimp was delicious, and the grilled snapper was wonderful. Nice wines at modest prices. Very friendly service. Believe this placeshould be higher up in TA rankings... More

As a local couple, we like to take visiting friends to special places and show off Perth and Fremantle. I've always wanted to try the Freo Boardwalk for a seafood dinner, and selected Joes at random. The 'shack' style and waterside position presents an attractive outlook, and our table enjoyed views out to the trawlers, giving a nice marine atmosphere.... More

Decided to have lunch here - 3 people working, we had to leave our seats to call someone to order, check on our drinks, check on the missing items from the order (twice). Very Poor!!! Never eating here again.

We were a group of 4 and each of us were very happy with our meals. I had 2 entrees and the portion sizes were very generous. Reasonably well priced by Perth standards. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.

When I go to Fish and Chips in Freo, we always go to Kailis'. It's always good, it's what you'd expect of fish and chips. Good value, good food. My friend says the same thing about Cicerello's which is next door. We went to Freo last night for fish and chips and decided to try Joe's Fish Shack for a... More

We visited Freemantle while on a visit to Perth from London to celebrate our Golden Wedding. It was lunchtime so we decided to try Joe's Fish Shack for fish and chips - we were not disappointed. The interior decor was imaginative - an old VW van, cut in two place on either side of the interior. The from half of... More
