Description: 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.

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

The gumbolaya (combination of gumbo and jambalaya) is out of this world. The coconut shrimp is always fresh, crunchy, and perfectly cooked. The drinks are good, beer always cold and the rooftop bar provides a great view. We usually only do lunch. The managers are always professional and courteous. The wait staff are always nice…not angry teenagers who don’t want... More

My wife and I split a Grouper sandwich for lunch and it was very tasty. The view is terrific. We were seated quickly. The place has a lot of character, with hats hanging from the ceiling contributed by customers from all over the world. I am looking forward to making future visit's to Coconut Joes'.

Ok so if you're looking at my title and looking at my rating it doesn't make sense right? Well let me explain that. The vibe is very laid back. The view is awesome, what view of the beach isn't? And the service was good. Now on to what you really want to know about.......the food. It was very tasty, try... More

Yikes! Thanks for letting us know! Since we are partially outside, we wage a constant war against Mother Nature and her minions. We have hit this problem hard, thanks to your review. I will be checking to see that the problem stays solved. More

We had a large group and was told it would be 15-30 minutes. We waited about an hour and 15 minutes before being seated. But it was worth it. They have live music every night, ocean front view, and great food. Our group ordered things from fish tacos, coconut shrimp, burgers, wings, po boys, chicken, and they also have a... More

On our visit to Isle of Palm beach the wife, daughter and I decided to check out Coconut Joe's. We all ordered the fried Grouper sandwich which was excellent. Since we all ordered the same meal, it is hard to judge the menu as a whole, but if the rest of the food is as good as the fish, I... More

I went there with my family to go eat, while we stayed at the isle of palms. My food was utterly greasy my mother's hamburger was dry and my father's fish was half bad all in all avoid coconut Joe's if you want really good seafood I recommend Red's icehouse in Shem creek

We came here for our anniversary dinner and were very pleased. Service was excellent our drinks appetizer and food were out with perfect timing. The crab dip was amazing! and entrees even better. I must say the BEST mashed potatoes Ive had in quite a while and the shrimp, tilapia and crab cakes were just amazing! Definitely recommend

Live music and super engaged staff made it fun. Colorful and uniquely decorated. We were a bit puzzled why, when we decided to ask for a table, there was such a long wait. By that time the upstairs was half empty. The food was good but not a great culinary experience because it's more of a beach bar to me.... More
