Wow!!!

We were in town the week of April 7th for our son's wedding. We decided to find a place to eat for the family members in town on Thursday the 9th. It started out as a dinner for 26 and ended up being a dinner for 44 after we sent the menu out. Some people even left a day earlier... read more

I visited this location about a week ago. It was another location in Hoover that I have heard raved reviews about. I ordered the crawfish, which are a favorite of mine. They were cooked just right but too much spices were added. I grew up on the coast so I know what great seafood tastes like. And you don't have... More

I'm new to Alabama. I moved here last year from Boston and I'm still getting acquainted with the area, places, and people. I did not know about the existence of this restaurant until I started browsing Tripadvisor more frequently. Here I saw Jubilee Joe's as the #1 restaurant in the Hoover area. After realizing how close we were to this... More

I was so excited to come here since it is #1 in Hoover, but I'm not really sure why. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but not great. I felt like it was something I can get anywhere. The shrimp was pretty good, but my crab claws were a little dry. The sign says they closed at 9, but... More

Jubilee Joe's is a great Cajun style restaurant in a strip mall just off I-459 near the Hoover Met - Bessemer exit. The food is great, and the servers always are personable and cater to your needs. The spiciness of their gumbo is a crapshoot but it is always good (sometimes very spicy and sometime just spicy.) Their stuffed grouper... More
