Great food - a must try is the dry jerk wings! Sitting in the porch offers a good breeze with beach front views.

We ended up here when another restaurant couldn't accomodate our large party. We were very pleasantly surprised! Our food was great and the view was awesome. We had a combination of dinner, apps and kids meals and everything was good. Would definitely go back!

This is a nice place to go for rooftop views,tropical drinks,& a close place to grab a hearty lunch after playing at the beach all morning. The staff was incredibly friendly,as well are the prices. Lots of good food to choose from,& there's indoor & outdoor dining,w/ perfect beachfront views. One of the best places I ate during my stay.

This was my favorite place to go and I went there every single time I went to IOP. I loved the Fish Tacos but the live music on the deck, the drinks and being right next to the ocean are the reasons I truly love this place.

Stopped here for lunch, and the food was very average. The atmosphere is fantastic, and the views are great for hanging out and people watching. There are definitely places to get a better lunch at Isle of Palms, but if you're there for a week, it's worth stopping here for a sandwich and a beer...

Well, gee. I'm so sorry you thought your lunch was average. We really do strive to use the freshest ingredients and be creative with our recipes. I honestly can't say that I have had a better lunch anywhere else on Isle of Palms. We hope you will try us again, and please see a manager if your lunch isn't delicious. More

Sent our kids out parasailing for a couple of hours and wound up here. Great views of the ocean and a great breeze. Totally typically beach bar / fish tacos - coconut shrimp - 14oz overpriced drinks. Worth the views and the breeze but not a drive out here just for this!

Management response:

Hmmm…..First, we are not a beach bar, we are a family restaurant. Second, we do extensive research before pricing menu items, and I think our prices are competitive with other locations in the area. Sure, you could probably get a cheaper drink five miles inland, because those folks do not have to pay the exorbitant insurance premiums that beachfront properties... More

We ate here 4 times in 10 days because of the great service, phenomenal view from the porch, and fantastic food! The crab dip appetizer is a winner and hands down our favorite! We also really liked the moon shaped cheese wedges. I enjoyed the crab cake sandwich as well and the nachos were plentiful. Excellent mixed drinks too! We... More

Not gourmet food but location location location. The food was fine and the beach atmosphere is what you want on your beach vacation. A good place to take the kids...or if old enough let them wander down on their own.

Great place to eat and enjoy a drink. The rooftop bar overlooks the ocean. Very relaxing. The staff were awesome and although I didn't make it in time for the live entertainment, I could hear them from my room and they sounded great!

We come to the Isle of Palms every summer and we always eat at Coconut Joe's. Everything has always been delish. Have my first ever fish taco there last year....2 thumbs up! Last year we ate there twice and had the same waitress both nights. Not only did she remember us, but she remembered what we had ordered. With all... More
