But it's worth it. On Hwy 150 (John Hawkins) but set up on the hill. You're not likely to see it driving by. This is maybe my third or fourth time and it's always been very good. This time I took my son-in-law for dinner. He had the snapper and I had the big bowl of seafood gumbo. It was... More

I had dinner there on 1/16/16 with 10 of my family members. This was my first visit. I was a little worried that everything on the menu would be really spicy but I was wrong. They do have spicy dishes but I ordered the crab claws and shrimp platter and they were so good. We had the green fried tomatoes,... More

We decided to stop here for dinner on our way home to NC from the western US. It is right off the freeway and had good reviews. It's a cozy casual little place. We loved it. Tried the fried green tomatoes (yum!) and the seafood extravaganza which was recommended by our waiter. The chips are homemade and the hush puppies... More

The food at Jubilee Joes is not only good, its great. If your looking for a NOLA experience, definitely go here. The Service is amazing and the atmosphere of the whole place is good too. The price is unbelievably reasonable. I have been to such a great place like this in years!

Before you think me mad for excellent hear me out. Closest experience to Acme Oyster House since I was in NOLA. The oysters on the half shell were great (coulda been loosened) and the stuffed grouper was excellent (coulda waited till I finished the oysters). It is in a strip mall so do not expect valet parking. You can expect... More

Stopped in late after an Alabama football game and the restaurant was everything the reviews promised. There were 8 of us with 2 little boys (exhausted after that traffic back to Hoover to our hotel) and the dinner was delicious. I was surprised to find fresh oysters on the menu and that was a total bonus! The waitress was super,... More

Everything was excellent from the service to the food. We tried everything from steamed platters, to gator, and fried seafood with no complaints. Possibly the best seafood in central and west Alabama.
