Coconut Joe's is a family-friendly restaurant right on the beach. We have a wide range of entrees on our menu: burgers, seafood, Caribbean specialties, entree salads, wraps, and plenty of choices for the children. During the season, we have live music at our rooftop bar every night, and this is a fun place to be if there is a wait for your table. We offer call-ahead seating up to 45 minutes ahead of your anticipated arrival. During the cooler months, we offer a spectacular view, and a quieter environment to enjoy your meal.

Nice view and friendly staff

The view over the ocean and beach is lovely. I like the hippie style, relaxed and simple. Choose a day with nice weather and warm, nice to be seated at the balcony. If it is a bit chilly, it could be cold because it is not totally shielded. The staff and service is kind. Good regular coffee, for... read more

I took a day trip out to Isle of Palms today to explore the area for the first time, and was delighted to see the many options on the beach for dining and drinks. This place looked like the most fun, with a two level deck facing the ocean. We walked up to the "hostess hut" and were given a... More

Nice beach side restaurant with outdoor non-smoking seating. Went there for lunch and dinner. Both were tasty. Service was good. Lots of selections.

This place was a lot more casual than I envisioned. It was a little divey, honestly, but we really enjoyed the coconut shrimp and shrimp po boy. We also both enjoyed our drinks. I got the frozen raspberry daiquiri and my husband got the rocks drink with blue curacao. (It tasted exactly like a blue margarita to me.) I got... More

Coconut Joe's was everything we wanted for our day trip to the beach. The food was delicious. I particularly recommend the trio I got which included Mahi, Crab Cake, Shrimp, and Fries. I was in seafood heaven. Our waitress forgot to bring our appetizer so she comped it for us..so nice. They also have great happy hour specials and a... More

I've been here before on business and wanted to take my spouse to try it. Both the drinks and the food met our expectations. Large portions and great service. We will return.

Was there for lunch this spring. The food was good, service was fine. We thought it was a bit overpriced and the restaurant needs some updating.

Right on the beach - a bit too cold to sit outside but we sat near the window overlooking the beach. Our server was rather slow getting drinks to us. The menu has ample variety for seafood lovers and non-fans of seafood. I had a Yolko Ono Burger; should have ordered the egg fried a bit harder, had to eat... More

We stayed in a hotel on the beach and we wanted somewhere close. It was good food and excellent service.

First, do NOT order the "calamari strips". I don't know what those things were made of, but it did not taste like calamari... and calamari does not come in "stick" form... One of the kids in our group ended up sick after eating here and all she had was a corndog and fries. The rest of the food was okay,... More

Marti M, Executive Director of Happiness at Coconut Joe's, responded to this review

Calamari is available in either strips or curls. It is HIGHLY unlikely that the child got sick from a corn dog, due to our preparation of this item. I have contacted the reviewer for further information. More
