it was the day after Valentines Day, that was their excuse for being out of oysters, and several other entrees. Well, Joes everywhere is mediocre at best anyhow, and way overpriced for what you get. These Buckets that cost $31 for some skinny crab legs they wouldn't even sell at a fish market in Seattle. Most of the bucket is... More

Decided on a trip to Joes for lunch along with a lot of other people. The service was a little slow, but the food was hot and delicious. I had the southern stuffed shrimp and bacon makes everything better.

The service waitress was best over all. Food took too long, the fried seafood was poor and over priced, just over priced Long John Silver. The bathrooms was out of order, had to walk to landing area just to wash your hands. Lame!!! Very disappointed, was so looking forward to eat here, never go back now. :/

Took forever to serve their food and the crabs and lobsters were good but the kids meals burgers and steak were disappointing. Was also getting impatient since took forever and we had 5 kids with us.

We went for the view, mainly. I had the blackened mahi tacos. The fish was a little tough, seemed overcooked and I think it was skimpy on the sauce. My husband had the crab nachos and those were very good, packed with crab. My mom got a chicken sandwich that was very good. My son had a captains catch basket... More
