Saw reviews and thought we would have lunch. I am a seafood lover. I had the Grilled Talapia, it was not good, the roasted pepper sauce that was on it did not seem fresh at all, the vegetables that came with it were just mixed frozen vegetables. One daughter had the catfish and it tasted like it was frozen and... More

My dinner guest captured it best. This has the feel of a Red Lobster but has far better food. Service is average and it a weird atmosphere that feels like franchise chain restaurant, bar, TV's showing sports, with a general lack of atmosphere and warmth. The expansive menu has a wide variety of seafood alternatives that come from the kitchen... More

Bartender didn't know how and couldn't properly remove the seal from our bottle of wine. Waitress filled our two glasses to the top without offering an opportunity to sample and asked if I wanted my appetizer served at the same time of the entree. Every request had to be made twice in that the waitress wouldn't remember. I truly hope... More

We ate at Joey's and the food was good. The salad was very fresh, I had the seafood Alfredo and it was very good. Our waiter Rian was great, we wanted a leisurely dinner and he accommodated us. He was very attentive but never rushed us. That's what we like. It was a very enjoyable evening.

We were looking for lunch after needing a car repair at a nearby dealer. With a family of four, we could not have found a better place. Our server was engaging, knowledgeable, patient, and respectful. We ordered two of the specials - a grilled salmon cobb and a seared ahi tuna with wasabi cream sauce. Everything was cooked perfectly, so... More

If you're in the mood for seafood, you need to go to Joey's. It's got a real locally-owned, small-town feel and the food is good. Just be careful if you get there early, they're not always ready to serve you. It's actually better when the place is more crowded.

If you love shrimp and fish this is an awesome place to eat. Every Tuesday and Thursday it's all you can eat fish, shrimp and crab legs. I always get the shrimp, and it is amazing. They are huge and you can get them 10 different ways. As far as value, I don't know of another place where you can... More

We went here for lunch and the food was terrific. You'll feel like you're on the coast when you walk inside and the great aroma of fresh seafood hits you. The staff were friendly and funny, making our visit more enjoyable. Every time I visit I try to sample something new off the menu. You really can't go wrong with... More

A bit pricey (higher end of $$), but great food! The only downside of this place is you definitely need to make reservations a couple of hours in advance (especially on the weekend).

We have dined at Joey's for several years. It used to be a chain but now it is privately owned and has improved a lot. The portions are ample, the food is fresh. Last visit I had a wonderful potato crusted salmon , home made mashed potatoes with extras, and fresh vegetables with mango mixed in, part of their Caribbean... More
