Nothing over the top but our sandwiches were very good. I had them make a veal parm sandwich for me as it was not on the menu. It was real sliced veal. Very nice.

Great old time atmosphere( like your favorite neighborhood mom and pop) awesome food(shrimp po boy is my strong recommendation) red beans and rice are true blue! I would put the gumbo up against anyone's (the "so called" cream of the gumbo crop has nothing whatsoever on JK's) very fair price, very friendly staff, great eats and a definite must stop... More

Our family of five went to this restaurant based on hotel's recommendation. What a find! It covers all the New Orleans classics very well--jambalaya, gumbo, etc.--but I will never forget the eggplant napolean (pictured above). Apparently, it's what Guy Fieri had when he came to the restaurant for Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Crispy eggplant with shrimp topped with a dreamy... More

This was one of the best meals we had on vacation. Everyone tried something different and it was all really good. I had the seafood stuffed beignet and the remoulade stacker - both very good. Friends had a pizza and thought it was one of the best they have had.

Very consistent, always reasonable. Local simple home cooking with local ingredients. If you're going for lunch, get there early or be prepared to wait.

Had an excellent lunch at Joey-K’s. I had the “All-You Can Eat” Catfish plate. I was disappointed that I couldn’t substitute the fries for the onion rings. The Fries are “ok” but their rings have a great reputation and I wanted to try them. A separate order would have been too much food so I had to pass on the... More

We were sent to Joey K's by a local fish market while looking for some good seafood. We were not disappointed, Seafood Sampler platter was very tasty and enough for for 2 of us to share, Even better was we ate late enough for happy hour and got 2 for 1 draft beers.

We visited for lunch based on all the great reviews but came away disappointed. First the bread basket was served and had money in it (I think it was a tip from a previous table and they re-served the bread ). When brought to our servers attention she simply said "lucky for you" and kept going. We had to ask... More
