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 food, on the beach

Sit outside and eat well from a broad menu that includes sandwiches, seafood, and bar staples. The sea breeze keeps you pretty cool, and you don't need to do more than pull a t-shirt over your bathing suit to meet the dress code. There's live music at night on the roof deck.

I totally thought this was just going to be a mediocre beach grill, but holy cow, I had an amazing meal!! The yohko ono burger and crabstack sandwich were absolutely delicious!! Not too expensive, but not super cheap. Great view of the beach!!

Sat out on open air covered room that overlooked the ocean. Enjoyed tropical drinks. We ordered a kids meal for our son and it was Avery good value. You can pay an extra $2 to get a virgin tropical drink for the kids drink.

With a name like Coconut Joe's we just had to go. Not a tiki bar but it does overlook the beach. (it happens while we having lunch someone almost drowned so there was a lot of action to see). But back to the restaurant; we went for lunch and it wasn't crowded and the rooftop was closed. Our server Brittany... More

Take it from a local, this place has gone down hill. I wish someone would come in and buy joe out and put in a real restaurant. Then maybe the place would be properly staffed. Middle of summer and one bartender working the rooftop bar Making frozen drinks. Anyone whose worked food-bev knows how long those drinks take to make.... More

We do not believe that this is actually a customer review. This reviewer appears to have a personal vendetta against Joe. As a general rule, however, I would like to say that customers are not privy to our wait list, so they do not know what is happening. We often have something like a 30 minute wait, and tables open.... More

Waited an hour for our table . Sat upstairs in the bar area . The food took a long time to come out . The portions are not very big and the food was not worth the wait and the price . The grouper was dry. The waitress was very busy , so she was not very attentive .

The food was horrible! Our server almost acted embarassed to serve it! What the hash slinger did to that grouper should be illegal! My advice is have a drink on the upper deck, enjoy the view and then go find a real eatery!

Everyone in our party of 8 (including 2 children) loved their meal. I had their crabcakes and they were delicious, especially with the sauce that comes with. Their cold crab dip that was served with crackers was also very yummy. I would say it's a bit overpriced, but it's also right on the beach and one of the few options... More

The food is great and the prices are decent. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. The grandkids love this place. I would recommend their mixed grill or the shrimp and grits.

Nothing outstanding about what I had, but it was good. Nice patio to sit on while you eat and enjoy the ocean view.
