As a former chef I can tell a lot about a restaurant in very short order. We stop here often as it's close to our daughters school. We have always had good meals and service. But tonight we were on a time crunch and our server Amera did an outstanding job! The food was fantastic and I consider everything how... More

My family and I are always on the look-out for a good Friday fish fry, which can be more and more difficult to locate these days. We took a chance on Joey's based on the positive reviews, and we're really glad we did. It was excellent! We're actually surprised that we'd not "discovered" such a great place earlier. We arrived...

We were glad we found this little gem! We had crab legs, coconut shrimp and their smothered chicken was awesome. The service was great and it is reasonable for the food you get! It was only 5 min from our hotel as well, we really liked it!

Being from New England, it's quite tough to find places out in the Midwest that will live up to my standards concerning seafood. Of course, it needs to be fresh, not frozen, and the dishes prepared authentically. I found both at Joey's. I'm also sort of an onion ring freak. In the 6 years that I've lived here, I had... More

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.
