Joe's is just another chain you don't need to visit while you're visiting the Bay Area. Dine more on the finer local good eats than here unless you're into the usual fish and chips and maybe an "authentic" feel of crab cakes as you're dining by the sea. The food and the atmosphere are mediocre but tourists love it because... More

If it hadnt been for the great waiter we had, it would not have even gotten one star. The food was horrible and the whole restaurant was dirty. The restrooms were too disgusting to describe. We went there on a Sunday, guess they hadnt cleaned from the party the night before. I think they spent more time trying to get... More

The restaurant has typical Joe's food with the typical wait. They have a view of the water and even in spring, it can be chilly if you choose to dine outside. Don't let the fact that it's Texas fool you. Wind on the water can be cool, especially at night. Ask your local hotel for a coupon. Most hotels have... More

Food here was very well cooked and presented, great selection of both foods and drinks and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money, right on the sea front, much better than the main food street, if you cant find it, it is through the marina, look for the full size pirate ship next door.

Well. The place has a great view of the bay. The bird feces and the dingy look of the place need attention. The food was of mixed quality. My crab cake salad was decent though they had no sauce other than salad dressing for the crab cake. My friend's Mahi tacos were disappointing and very thin on fish. The waiter... More

I celebrated my 40th birthday here and had a great time. We were served by Hector and he really went out of his way to make it special. Thanks Hector for making it memorable we will be back

I went here twice over the weekend cause once wasn't enough. They fire grilled seafood is the best. I had queen crab and Lobster claws. The view is great and the service was quick and the portions huge and affordable.

First thought of the restaurant was good, decent view of the coast. The hostess was rude ando seated us in a dirty booth with food on the table and crusty food on our menu's. The first thought when being seated was the stench of rotten something or other. The waitress was nice and attentive but the food was horrible!! I... More

Unfortunately our crab cake was burnt, the salad was wilted, a hamburger was dry, the crab and shrimp were NOT clean and unfortunately NOTHING was seasoned. Try something else in corpus Christie if you're looking for tasty seafood. :(
