Lunch specials are great value.

Tourist don't seem to know about this place, which is a shame because a family can eat here at bargain prices, especially for lunch. Good food, nothing fancy at this order-at-the-counter spot.

Joe Lee's is fantastic! I went for lunch and had the catfish strips, green beans and fried okra for $6.99! It was hot, fresh and delicious. The restaurant is very clean and spacious. The ice tea was fresh. They actually give you a lot of food. I ate the whole damn plate (piggy)! I could have easily taken the other... More

I've first starting eating at Joe Lee's in the mid 80's when it was still on the dock in Kemah. The current location is definitely where the locals hang out. We leave the tourists on the Boardwalk. The catfish filets are very good. Personally, I like the taste of their gumbo. If you're worried about spice, don't be. Their gumbo... More

Ate at Joe Lee's last night. Yes you order at the counter and then pick up your good when they call your number. Ordered a seafood platter. Was told no crawfish, so I replaced with butterflied shrimp. Order was ready very quickly, which indicated the seafood had already been previously prepared. Tasting confirmed this. Who knows how long ago that... More

Their lunch specials are great. I had the popcorn shrimp dinner which was delicious and had so many shrimp I could not eat it all and could have shared it with someone.

Order at the counter and pick up your food at the counter. Plastic baskets for the Fried shrimp and seafood platter. Generous portions and cooked well. Other items on menu other than seafood. No atmosphere but quick service.

Very simple and casual atmosphere but good food. Had to wait for a table but got a table before food was ready. Other items on menu other than seafood. The burgers looked great.

This isn't a fancy place but the food is really good. I have said all I care to say about this place other than we will return sometime.

I used to work at Joe Lee's back in the late 80's when it was on the waterfront (now occupied by the Boardwalk). Back in the day the shrimp slaw was one of my favorites, and to this day I still order is when I pass thru town. It also happened to be half-priced burger day since the Texans won.... More

Not only can you get great seafood at a reasonable price but you can also get the best menu items for the defunct South Shore Beer Garden. Same great burgers and tots. Unfortunately all dining is inside but that's okay for most of the year.
