Bayou Joe's was one of my favorite lunch time stops when I was a working man. Hadn't been back in a while. I met some old friends for breakfast and was not disappointed in my visit. Always enjoyed the rustic and relaxed atmosphere, with nice views of waterfront. Coffee was tasty, fresh and they kept my cup full. There were... More

Out of the way little place right on the bayou. Outdoor covered seating, with it's own kind of "honky-tonk" charm, but really great food. Our group of four ordered grouper, crab cakes and a fish basket. Everything was very, very good. The service is both down home and fast.

Had been tok Bayou Joe's last year and decided to go for lunch. I love crab cakes so upon recommendation of the waitress decided to try the crab cake sandwich. I should have stuck with the shrimp basket!!! It was mostly filler and no crab, I found two lump pieces and that was it. On the other hand, my husband... More

Have not been in a while but it never disappoints us. Lots to choose from but i would stick with the local seafood and ask the servers for their recommendations always. Definitely a one of a kind place thats always fun to take 1st timers to. (by boat if you can)

Definitely can trust the trip advisor reviews on this one. Don't be deterred by the entrance. Awesome fish tacos, fried shrimp and flounder. Quiet and charming with a great view.

I ordered a scrambled egg and bacon sandwich with hash browns. When the waitress brought the bill it was over $12.00. I told the waitress that seemed a little high. She agreed and explained that since it was not a menu item thatI had been charged al la carte prices--- $2.00 for the egg, $2.00 for the bacon, $2.00 for... More

A hidden jewel as we read is an understatement. This place was the bomb. If you choose not to go here if you have the opportunity I feel bad for you. Every aspect of this place is off the charts. My daughter and myself even went back for a second time while the guys were shark fishing. I am sure... More

We went there because of the raves on tripadvisor .... great choice ... this place is a small waterfront dive with tons of character .... I think it's in a marina because it's surrounded by boats ... you can even take your boat and tie up to the joint .... there were only two tables available, one for six in... More

I always like to start a review with the good. Lets see, I liked my meal. I ordered the Mahi Mahi basket and loved it. You cant go wrong with fried fish and fries. My husband ordered the crab cakes and love them as well. He is a crab cake connoisseur. I really enjoyed the atmosphere as well. We ate... More
