Anniversary Trip

The start of our 25th anniversary trip did not start of good. Went to Joe's for lunch. Had the double dip appetizer, it was good. Decided to not have a steam pot, and try something different. Wife had a spicy shrimp plate, that was very spicy and very good. I had a new item called Hush puppy... read more

Nice late night meal, special deals and conveniently located, plus the hotel provided a coupon for an appetizer.

Great sea food (for a non-coastal town), large kids' menu and full bar. What's not to like? Service was fast and courteous. It's walking distance from the Hampton Inn Hotel across the street - so keep the beer coming. Don't forget to check out the wall tile work in the bathrooms - neat!

My wife and son had fish and chips. I had a seafood platter with flour battered fish, shrimp, and scallops. The batter tasted like flour and the fish was tasteless. My son did not eat his fish which was overdone and chewy. My wife's fish had a hot spicy jalapeño flavor. She was was unable to eat it. The shrimp... More

We stopped in for a late dinner and had appetizers. The drinks were good but the food was just okay.

We arrived at 4:00 half the tables in the restaurant and we had to wait to get one of the tables cleared. Half the room had dirty tables. Finally I asked if we could sit at a clean table in the corner but was told that that waitstaff went home. I would suggest bushelp

We ate here on 8/20/14. Evening, parking lot was full so we expected a long line to get seated. But it didn't happen, got in and seated quickly. Waitress Cory was a pleasant person quick service and friendly. My wife had Coconut Shrimp and I the Maui plate. We shared some as we always do. The check was reasonable. Last... More

This was one of the best places to eat. We had the best server, Jud, and he always had a smile on his face and eager to help and please us. Even the manager, Allison, came and visited with us. We ordered the popcorn shrimp dinner and by the last of the small shrimp, they began to look like fantail... More

Have been to Joe's in San Antonio, and two in the Phoenix area. This one is the best. If you never have been, and you like seafood, you must go. Staff breaks out in dance moves occasionally, and be sure to tell them it's your birthday. But beware, you WILL perform. (Harmless fun). We have never had a bad meal... More

My husband and I stopped for a late lunch. With us there were only nine patrons inside. Host sort of "greeted" us - no friendly hello, glad you're here, etc. Our server told us she was in training and we could tell she was trying. We ordered our beverages which took a long time coming because the bartender was on... More
