Really fun place for two people on vacation. Our waitress, Bailey, was super. The big shark and other decorations were a hoot, but the best thing of all was the lengthy dance all the waitstaff did on the perimeter of the large dining area. I had mango shrimp, which was very good. I enjoyed the whole experience, including the throwback... More

We went with our kids and got WAY too much food. So unless you're a big eater, consider sharing. With that said, everything was really delicious. My husband did get a sampler platter with mostly fried foods--it was great, but you get kind of burned out on fried foods fast (couldn't consider something fried for lunch the next day after... More

Ate lunch at Joe's to celebrate an event. There were only a few other people in the restaurant, and yet our service was slow. The calamari sampler was good, but there were not enough chips brought with the crab dip. The coconut shrimp was very good. It came with a small paper container of cole slaw and side of french...

I was in town for the RV Show (we had a booth at the show) decided to "Eat at Joe's" ...and I am very glad I did! I sat at the bar to avoid a wait as the place was pretty busy, which is a good sign in my book. I was greeted and served by Julie, who was AWESOME!... More

My family ate here after a day of school shopping for my son in Salt Lake City. Our food was delicious as always. Our server was very friendly however a little "hoversome". We felt like we couldn't enjoy our conversation because she was constantly at our table.

Went on a Friday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was mediocre and the restaurant was loud and not very clean. The waitress was great, but the whole atmosphere of the place was off. Not appealing at all. I don't think we will ever go back.

After eating at this restaurant many times my son asked to eat here for his birthday dinner. The service was amazing and the food was excellent. They even did everything possible to make sure that my son had the most amazing birthday ever. Having a place for them to play in while we waited for dinner was a huge plus.... More

Had lunch here with a friend. Cool vibe, slightly pushy waitress, but efficient non-the-less. Good sized menu, lots of seafood options. Not exactly cheap or great value for money. Ordered a platter. Everything was battered and deep fried. Chips were good and coleslaw a bit soft - it should be crunchy - obviously had sat in the fridge for a... More

First time here in years. Clam chowder was very good. Main course was coconut shrimp, crab stuffed shrimp, hush puppies, fish and chips and great balls of fire. All of it was good but nothing exceptional. Still, not a bad meal though.

It was okay. Just close to the movie .. It was too salty for me though. Nice huge space so maybe good for family and large group for meal.
