Great food!

Food was very satisfying, the classic sampler was excellent! The 12 oz ribye steak wasn't how i wanted it cooked but was still very juicy and very tasty! I would definitely come here again

Our server, Rachel, was always quick to get us anything we needed, made some really cute bibs, and the kids found they LOVE crab!

The food was great. My husband and I shared a Joe's classic steam pot. The service however was not on point. I was never brought a refill after my drink was empty for 30 minutes.

We stopped in for dinner on our way to Gatlinburg. There was no wait for a table which was fantastic. Our server came out and took our drink orders. We had a few questions about the menu (size of the entree, what he recommended, etc) and he answered all our questions with ease. We placed our order and it seemed... More

The food & service was very good. A little expensive. This was convenient to our hotel and we had never eaten at a Joe's before. I would go back again.

This is the go to restaurant for my husband. He loves the Crab Steamer pots. I will say that they need a few more healthy options on the menu.

ordered fried items ---- they were dripping grease. Fried items can be done right, and that's what I expected. Couldn't hardly handle that. Will never go back again.

Crab legs steamed until were rubber, did not crack but bent.Difficult if not impossible to get meat out and much was wasted. Service mediocre at best. Very disappointed.

We shared the cheesy crab dip and it was excellent. REAL crab meat. My husband had the fish special and it was about average. I had the salad with the crab cake on tip and it was very good. Would definitely go again and recommend.
