Food is worth the stop

I am a local in Gulf Shores and too often have wished there was a Gelato Joe's at the beach, however, the difference in the 2014 reviews and the reviews from 2015 suggest a too common problem here in South Alabama...good help is difficult to find.

My family lives nearby and discovered Gelato Joes about 2 months ago, and have come in about 6 times - always 5-10 of us. We always order dinner and desserts. This place had become one of our new regular stops. However, last night that came to an end. My wife, daughter, son-in-law, grand baby and myself (5 of us) came... More

We stopped in for lunch and desert and are happy we did. The salads, sandwiches, deserts, and gelatos all looked appetizing, and the food we ordered met the visual display. They also had a short list of $2 vodka cocktails. I had the CranVodka and it was good. Clean establishment, good service, fresh good food. We will eat here again... More

A friend took me here yesterday for lunch. We both got sandwiches, and they were great. They have many flavors of gelato, and their dessert case, and cookie cases are to drool over. Unfortunately the sandwiches filled us up, but next time I'm starting with dessert first!

We went specifically to try the gelato... It's good, but no better than Talenti that you can buy at Publix. And a pint at Publix cost the same as one smallish scoop at Gelato Joe's... The neat thing is that it is like a throwback Italian 'deli' with the prepared pastas, salads, cakes and cookies all in the front cases!

Stop by for a drink outside patio - very good, but stopped by numerous times later and place was always closed. Wanted to try deli sandwiches but gave up after last try on Saturday, April 4 around 2pm. Ended up going elsewhere. Maybe they were closed for Easter, but no signs indicating that.

The amenities there were like in the 50's. The waitress kept skipping over me. She brought me the wrong sandwich 2 times. The when I asked to speak to a manager she make a snide commit about Yankees, Well I was born in Foley and raised here. I have never been so embarrassed in my life. She said out loud... More
