My Husband really wanted to go

We went here end of Dec 2013. My husband brother in law and a friend. We went on a Saturday night and it was really dead in there. Made me wonder a bit. I thought it looked cool inside, but I thought the food was nothing special. Others got drinks and said they were good. But all in all it... read more

We ate here while staying at a nearby hotel that was within walking distance. The staff were welcoming and assured us that sitting outside wouldn't be a problem. We weren't locals and they explained that we weren't in the bug season just yet and they also, tongue-in-cheek, said they didn't allow bugs! Our server was enthusiastic and explained the menu...

This restaurant has been in the area for years. Hugely popular at first. Shut down. Resurrected and opened again. We went to give it a try. Average food at best. Way over priced for what it was. Disappointed.

I cannot get enough of this place. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is fun and they even have a playground.

We had are great time as not only was the seafood absolutely fulfilling, the staff was very engaged. Our waiter made our family time even better as he was very friendly. Oh my goodness the Lobster, crab legs and crab fries left us wanting more even though we were full. Look forward to visiting again!

We have never had a bad experience at this Joe's!! It's always a fun & delicious time!! We highly recommend the classic steam pot with sunset fire grill spice... Add a mason jar margarita (the lime in the drink enhances the food) or two!! Now I'm craving Joe's!!!!

we went to Joe's because all of the other restaurants in the area had 30+ minute wait times. Now I know why we were able to get in so quickly. Food was below average, table was sticky, staff was nice, but almost too casual...

Always entertaining! David our server was wonderful! They all looked to really work like a team. The cocktails were perfect (not too weak) $6. The kids ate off the kids menu. Under $6, large portions! They both loved it! (12 & 9) kids dessert under $2!!!! My husband had the lobster pot around $30. He ate every bite!!! I had... More

This place is terrible. We had a group of 12 people, they told us they could seat us immediately, it took almost an hour of waiting in the doorway. No one ahead of us and many open tables. Most of the dishes are served in slop buckets. No sides or anything with your entree. One got the slop bucket of... More
