Long Wait

The decor is amazing. My toddler loved all the sharks around the place but the wait for our food was way tooo long. 50 minutes to get our food out! The place wasn't packed so I feel it shouldn't have taken that long. Our party was 8 adults 3 kids and most of us ordered something to share so it... read more

Awesome place to eat. Right on the pier. Plenty of room and one of the best Joe's we've been to. We make sure to make it here when we visit. Love the steampots!

Avoid this restaurant at all costs! We made reservations well in advance for a large group. They sat us out on a patio with picnic tables--none were set up to accommodate our party and there weren't enough tables to seat us all. We had to find more tables and set everything up ourselves while the wait staff watched. Then the... More

Nice menu, interesting decor, great location. It's a shame the food isn't as good as the view. I've eaten at this restaurant several times and always expect it to be better than it is. I hope they pick up their game and start offering better quality. Drinks are very good but a bit pricey.

I read a lot of negative reviews before we decided to try this place. I totally disagree with them. Our waiter, Hector, was very nice. I appreciate the fact that he took our order and didn't try to talk us into more expensive stuff. I had my mind on a Mai Tai, but they have a great drink called "Bahama... More

We went to Joe's on Wednesday evening, and our table was perfectly located to watch the sailboat races. The service was cheerfully offered and we were supplied with drink refills as needed. The food is typical Joe's fare - nothing great but nothing to complain about, either. I had a good meal (Southern Shrimp -- bacon and jalapeno wrapped shrimp... More

Long wait for food. The crab nachos were wonderful! The snow crab legs were soggy - hard to crack....actually couldn't really crack them. Probably the worst I've had. Server was very accommodating. They were very busy but she was very friendly and checked on us often. Husband got grilled bacon wrapped shrimp and it was good.

Great meal at the Shack. The Salmon was delicious. Call for reservations. It gets packed. Great view of the Gulf. Right in the Marina zone.

We were staying at the Holiday Inn right across the street from this location and since it was pouring down rain, we decided not to chance the bad weather and stay in close..the food was the worst..nearly every table in the place was dirty (4:30 in the afternoon??), the place only had four tables eating and we asked for a...
