We all had something different and every bite was delicious ! Ask to be seated in Stormy's section, he will take excellent care of you!

I went for lunch at Joe's on a whim. It may be a good place to go with a large group when having fun and eating some seafood. However, it was far from gourmet quality and fairly expensive for what I received. There are many better places to choose from in Galveston, so I will definitely not return!

Save yourself the unpleasant experience of pitiful quality food. The catfish my husband ordered was spoiled. The Maui Shrimp was barely cooked. Had a pre-made Pico de Gallo with out -of- a -can cut mangoes in minute amount and pieces. 2 pieces of broccoli and chunks of carrots. Ah, rice was undercooked. Disgusting. Very nice waitress, though, Nikki.

This Joe's has some of the best coconut shrimp I have ever eaten. It has a fantastic dipping sauce to go with it. My sister and I both raved about how good it was. My husband had fish and chips, and he liked his too. The hostess and our server were both friendly and did a terrific job. I highly... More

What fantastic view and the seafood was perfectly prepared. Plenty of seating particularly in January. The weather was blustery and a slight chill but watching the waves crash in while dining was perfect. Service was quick and attentive without being bothersome. Menu has great selections! Great with friends and share!!

We love Joe's and we recently ate at this one. Our server was awesome, even though they were out of 2 of the beers my friend tried to order. But he went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of....just wish I could remember his name..
