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

Great place! Found this by Googling Cajun food during s stay in Pelham. Of our group of 5, we all loved our food. The gumbo was fabulous.

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

fried green tomatoes appetizer is 5 star! A little crab meat and sauce on top. Fried oysters are perfect! Crab bisque, gumbo, shrimp po boy, red beans and rice are all done to perfection. The location is in a strip center but the food is good enough to be in a 5 star restaurant. Wait staff are attentive and knowledgeable.... More

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
