“Joe Fish a must go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

I found Joe Fish by accident in Pinelands and have been going at least once a week. Food is super and staff are great. Specials are really good as well, especially the fish tacos. Crunchy fish in a soft taco - very tasty.

“Good fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

This place is always packed - a good sign.

Our party of 5 was squeezed in without a booking, a piece of luck.

Service was prompt and when my tuna steak arrived well done rather than seared it was turned around in 5 minutes. We were very very impressed.

We will be back!

“Depndable Fish Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Good value, dependable, unpretentious fish restaurant in a corner of Pinelands.
Easy parking, booking for the restaurant is usually essential.
They have specials based on the day of the week and a core of loyal regular customers.
Mostly fish but there are some non-fish dishes.
Good place for a relaxed meal with friends.
Licenced but byo ok for a "corkage" fee.

“Honest meals to a good price with swift service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is a great place for a quick bite when you want to get some decent food. I am very critical, most others would give it a 4 but that is in my world reserved for places like Five Flies and the five for Laserre or Comme Chez soi so this is a good restaurant thou not world class.

“Our favourite fish restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

We are so fortunate to have this excellent fish restaurant right on our doorstep. Always take friends there as we are never disappointed and a first place of call for my USA cousin for their grilled calamari. The specials board is a pleasure and enjoy the fact that often there will be something new on the menu.
