A Drink on the Beach

We took a beach trip and had a late lunch early dinner at Joe's. The place has some miles on it and I guess it is a beach regular. Good bar area and drinks, so so food. good service

Sub par food at ridiculous prices. This place is a tourist trap, pure and simple. Our waitress was nice but we were her only table so it was easy. This restaurant tries to be very trendy with your place settings in a bucket and drinks in mason jar, but at their prices it should be silverware and linen tablecloth and... More

Hostess seemed inconvenienced to have to seat us. Waitress was very good. Waiters and waitresses were very entertaining. Atmoshpere was pleasant. We didn't have crab during this visit but the food was good. Parking was ample and easy.

Overall ok for chain seafood. I had the seafood pot pie. It came with a lobster claw sticking out of it which was obviously previously frozen and a little fishy. Mason jar margarita allows you to keep the glass. Fish and chips made with pollock and had a good crispy batter. Cobbler a good choice for dessert.

we went for a family dinner. The entrees were excellent with coconut shrimp, fried shrimp and crab stuffed shrimp. The clam chowder was very tasty. Service is prompt and the atmosphere very lively. I loved the big shark. Ann evening well spent.

Seated right away but we had to wait over an hour just to get a server. Empty tables everywhere but no server? Asked for two sides of hushpuppies as an appetizer during the wait from a lady seating customers since we didn't have a server. After 30 minutes I had to find her to ask where the hushpuppies were and... More

The steamer pot (KT steamer I think) was very good. Portions were decent and its price was 28$ The southern stuffed shrimp was good but not great and only 17$ or so. We are biased as my husband was a sous chef at a high end restaurant while attending college. He can prepare seafood extremely we'll at a fraction of... More

The staff was nice, the food was delicious, but the specialty drinks were weak and overpriced. On the last occasion, we waited more than 30 minutes to be seated when half of the tables were empty. I can only wonder why they wouldn't fill the empty tables. Shortage of wait staff? Wanting to seem even more upscale? Whatever the reason,... More
