"Great food but long wait"

Ate at Bayou Joe's last Saturday. There was only one server who was also running the register and bussing tables. She was swamped. When our breakfast finally came, it was great. She brought all the jelly, butter, and all the condiments in her first trip. Food was great and a nice atmosphere... read more

Bayou Joe's is a great little hideaway on the water, downtown. The chairs aren't comfortable, but everything else is wonderful. Great view of the bridge and bay, fun to watch the fishes, take a picture of the boats, and of course, eat good food!

The food is simple but excellent and the prices more than reasonable. I had the grouper basket and the fish was excellent. The place can become very busy at lunch time, so come early if you want to have a table with a good view of the marina. Even at the peak of occupancy, the service remains fast and courteous....

Drove 25 miles to this hole in the wall. Sooo glad we did! Food was really good, Bloody Marys were awesome. Food is authentic, really good and the atmosphere is worth the drive.

Had the pickles, coconut shrimp and the fish tacos with potato salad. Fish tacos needed more flavor (Co worker got a bone) and less tortilla for a better more traditional fish taco! Good but not $ 15 great

Luckily while browsing trip advisor we ran across this listing for dinner and we weren't finding anything in PCP that was not super expensive. This little place is located almost in a ship yard that you could not find unless you had the address. The ambience was awesome with glass walls on 3 sides and one of those "hole in... More

nibs and I had a great breakfast here. He said it was the best omelet (Tom's) he'd had in a long time. It was huge so he brought about half home. I had the Reece's Nutty Crunch french toast which was marvelous. Moe's is a hidden gem off the beaten path but worth the visit and a scenic drive as... More

It's definitely off the beaten path, but it's a fun search. Fun to watch the pelicans, and the occasional egrets and herons. You're right in the marina, so you get to enjoy the boats coming and going. It's kind of a beachy, boat shack, casual atmosphere. My favorite meal there is brunch. The food works! Great omelettes and home fries.... More

Hear the draw bridge beep as it draws so the sailboats can sail into the Bayou. Good learning experience with great food. Eagles sit on the Bayou poles while seagulls beg for a treat. See the fish swim beneath the boathouse restaurant floor. Drop one crumb of bread into the water and fish go crazy. Fun!
