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.

Good service and okay food but place needs some TLC

We ate here after swimming at the beach. The staff were friendly and the service was great. The food was just average. We ordered chips and cheese dip for appetizers, which were ok. I ordered the Mahi Tacos which were average but with some tartar sauce and it was quite awesome. The place... read more

When we put our name in, we were asked if we wanted to sit inside or out on the patio. We chose the patio despite a 25 min wait. After the expected wait, we were sat at a table a row away from the rail, which was truly disappointing. Two other tables on the water opened up and we asked... More

We didn't have high expectations but the food was not fresh, the fish was dry and out the freezer !!!! Me and the hubby and 2 boys paid $60 for at most fast food quality. Complete rip off! Never again

I have been here several times and never disappointed. The food is delicious (especially the shrimp), the drinks are good, and the view is beautiful. Also, if you are in IOP and looking for a nighttime location, the rooftop bar is nice with live music. Would highly recommend!

Right on the beach. I have always gone there for breakfast. Have a great breakfast. There fried cheese grits are to die for. They serve breakfast everyday except on Wednesdays. The decor is beachy really cute. What a better way to start the day sitting at the beach and having breakfast!

Stopped with wife on a trip. Nice to watch the ocean while eating, but food was average. Coconut shrimp were fine, cheese sticks were cold. Drinks pricey.

The top deck is a great place to visit and unwind after a long day of relaxation. Good music, decent bar prices make this a must visit during your stay on IOP

We've been to Coconut Joe's so many times over the years we feel like regulars. I tried the Crabstack today and it's awesome! Crabcake topped with fried green tomato topped with homemade pimento cheese topped with chipotle sauce. Yum! Coconut shrimp are always a winner. Yesterday, I tried the 1/2 fried oysters & 1/2 fried shrimp appetizer. Happy hour is... More

Reading some awful posts on this restaurant and am very confused. I've been here twice now and both times have been wonderful! Our waitress was Joell who is just a pleasure to work with. She is a great waitress! We had their Eggs Benedict with a Fried Green Tomato instead of Canadian Bacon. It was the best I've ever had!... More

Whether walking up from the sandy beach, or strolling in from the shops, this restaurant would welcome you. Great views of the ocean. The menu has the typical beach themed foods. One of their favorites is the coconut shrimp. I found this to be too heavily battered. Seems more like a place to enjoy the sunset with a refreshing beverage.... More
