Not like it used to be.

This used to be one of my best seafood places in jax. The quality and quantity of the food seems to have gone done some in the past couple of years. We used to bring groups of 12 to 15 people here

The location of this place is fabulous - right on Jax Beach - you can actually access the beach from the outside deck! Food is typical Joes - good, fair priced!

Very good food, cute beach atmosphere, friendly staff. Nice indoor dining area, clean, comfortable. Outdoor seating overlooking the beach, elevated just enough to see over the dunes.

The location is amazing!! Right off the beach, when we finished eating dinner we took a stroll down the beach, so beautiful at night and great end to an amazing dinner. The food was fresh , hot and the wait staff was great.

The waiter told us that none of the fish were fresh; all frozen. The restaurant was packed, which is sad considering the locally owned options near by.

After a morning sitting on the beach my wife and I decided to have lunch here and it was well worth it. The drinks and food were outstanding

This was a good place to eat. If you are in Jacksonville and want the touristy experience, Joe's is a must! The environment is always fun and friendly. This is good for families, friends or couples! They also allow you to bring your dog if you sit outside!

We usually make Joe's a MUST STOP on our yearly visits to Jax Beach. Something happened, don't know what, but the atmosphere is no longer happy and exciting. The servers appear not to care like they used to, the food has never been "fine dining" but it had the feel of "the beach." This year, we just didn't feel the... More

Sat outside with view of beach and ocean for early dinner. Casual atmosphere and so relaxing. Had frozen piña colada which with a touch more rum would have been fantastic yet it was very good. I enjoy spicy food and I didn't go wrong with my order. Had steamed shrimp in old bay and perfect hush puppies that had bits... More
