Yeah - we will be back in here!

We were going to eat at our hotel but pulled up restaurants nearby and this little gem popped up. The food was WONDERFUL! Make sure you get the fried green tomatoes and gumbo for sure. Our waitress was awesome! She was very helpful and attentive. This place was great and we will be back!

Three of us went for lunch and still haven't felt hungry to eat again today. As soon as you walk in, the smell is amazing. Once seated our server promptly took our drink order and whisked off to get them. We ended up getting the Gator Bites appetizer to share and wow they were very flavorful and the perfect temperature.... More

Driving to New Orleans, an overnight stop in Hoover AL. Checked with Trip Advisor for restaurants in the area and there was Jubilee Joe's. Had good reviews (thanks again Trip Advisor) so off we went. JJ's is in a strip mall, but don't let the location put you off or you will miss a really great experience. The service was... More

Food came out fast and tasted great. A taste of new Orleans in Alabama. Gumbo and Oysters are my favorites. The staff keeps busy making sure you are taken care of.

Oh my GOODNESS... I love the service at Jubilee Joes but more than that, I love the fried green tomatoes topped with crab meat and sauce. I ate it as my meal because it was so much. They have great crawfish as well if thats your thing. $$

If you love seafood and are in the Hoover area, don't miss Jubilee Joe's. The seafood gumbo was top notch; the grilled grouper was delicious, and a platter of steamed shrimp and royal reds was outstanding! Very juicy and spicy. The service was great. These folks know seafood and how to prepare it. And its very reasonably priced for the... More

Fast and friendly service. Awesome food! Been looking for a Cajun place to carry my boyfriend for months and this is the first one that can hold a candle to real Cajun food! It was a great experience and we will be back. The best crab cakes I have had in a long long time!
