Lunch

We went here for lunch. It wasn't busy at all. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. The hush puppies seemed old and kind of chewy. Wait time for our food was average. Staff was friendly, but could have been a little more active in refilling drinks.

Went in for lunch. They may have had 10 customers. Floors were filthy and we waited on our order for over an hour. The manager did come by our table and apologized for the wait. We had not complained at this point but he was told by our waitress I suppose. We finally get our food and it was cold... More

My meal was extremely bland. My sister-in-law had a very upset stomach afterward. This is not fresh seafood like you'd get on the coast and too much of a chain-type restaurant for my taste.

I was there yesterday for lunch. The food was ok. The waitress was the only one working and was so high strung she did not know if she was coming or going. She would come up behind you with a high pitch voice and say "how are we doing, can I get you a refill, is there anything else you... More

Joes is a little dark and loud. Food is just average or lower. Not at all relaxing or very enjoyable and the prices are pretty high.

I've been to Joe's a few times. I always have a good time and the food is always great. I love the dancing that they do every half hour. It makes you feel so festive.
