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.

Average Food but Great View

We selected this restaurant because it was on the water. Unfortunately it was cold and raining the day we went. They kept the plastic window covering down so you couldn't get a good view of the water. This was disappointing but we understood why they had to do it. The food was typical and very... read more

I had the Fried Green Tomato BLT; very good. Never tried anything like this before and would order again. My husband had grouper sandwich with red rice. Sandwich was wonderful; but rice was not hot. Excellent service.

We had a 1/2 hour wait on the room top with really nice live music. We had our 15 year old with us and I was concerned that the roof top bar would not be appropriate but it was mostly full of other families waiting for dinner and just a couple smokers. When we were seated the service was average... More

We ate here on the recommendation of a friend following a very nice walk on Sullivan's Island beach. I wish we had stuck to an eatery on Sullivan's! Parking here was a nightmare, only accomplished after circling the center island about 5 times and waiting for someone to pull out. There is parking on the lots nearby but it is... More

The city of Isle of Palms controls the parking near Coconut Joe's. The lot costs $6, and is a couple of blocks away. I'm sorry you didn't have a better experience. More

Food was good and kids loved getting a sand dollar. Sat on the deck overlooking the beach; nice breeze and friendly staff.

Music at the bar was great fun and good location. Food was okay. Service was horrible. Took 20 mins for anyone to come to the table, no drink refills, food didn't arrive together, and we finally just asked for the check when we got our food so we could finally leave.

This was my first time at Coconut Joe's. Great location on the beach. I had the fish tacos which came with black beans and red rice. They were average. I had two "perfect" margaritas (as listed on the menu). Tasted like cheap tequila and presented in a solo cup. I won't be rushing back.
