“Don't Miss this one!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2011

We went here with a group of adults/kids while vacationing in the area. It was exactly what we expected and more! A lively beach bar atmosphere and huge portions at great prices. What more can you want?

“Come for happy hour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2011

Conchy Joe's has the best happy hour in Jensen Beach. The first we went there, we walked in at 5PM and the bar was rockin'. We grabbed a couple seats at the bar and found out that they offer free food every weekday from 3-6PM. We waited in line for the buffet - it's different each day - for fried clams and they were good. We've also had tacos and hot dogs on other days.

Another wonderful happy hour option is $6 for a dozen oyster shooters. They're gulf oysters and quite good. The funny part is what happens when 6PM comes. All of a sudden you look around and the bar is empty. We're pretty sure this happy hour is supper for the locals.

As far as the restaurant is concerned, it's okay but nothing more. They have bands on some nights like Jammin' Jensen Thursdays.

It's a bit off the beaten path and there are no other food or drink options within walking distance.

“A Fun Place with Decent Food but TERRIBLE Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011

The restaurant was suggested by our hotel while on a family vacation. The decor was fun, live music great and the restaurant was doing a lively business. Unfortunately, it took over 80 minutes for our food to arrive! The apology of the waiter was muted at best and a manager was nowhere to be seen. The atmosphere was great and the food was acceptable to good but we would never go back.

“Touristy with a capital "T"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2011

This is touristy with a capital T! We had to wait over 45 minutes for a table for 2 even though we saw empty tables. We assume they want you to run up a bar tab first, as both bars were busy, no chairs available, and the waitstaff dashes by so you feel you're in their way. Hard to get to the bar to get a drink. Finally got seated but the distractions of wait staff rushing around and the amount of noise from band and surroundings made it hard to hear my date. Wine list was not great, but prices were high. Conch fritters were definitely a good choice, but the Wahoo was only about 1/4 thick, skin on half, large blood line and dry. The amount of kale they put on all the plates takes up half the plate to make you believe you're getting something for the high price they charge, I assume. Appetizer dishes, salad (wilted lettuce mostly), bread basket was not removed until nearly the end of the meal. Waitress didn't check back on us after receiving our entrees until nearly the end of the meal when she finally removed the empty dishes cluttering up our table, We're assuming she took a cig break as she came back reeking of smoke. Conchy Joe's has been there a long time, so it lives on through it's catchy name, and location on the water, so take it for what it's worth, but don't expect a quality meal to live up to the price you'll pay.

“Wonderful island feel, right near our motel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2010

While staying at the Driftwood down the street, the owner suggested we head down with the family to have dinner and enjoy some good music. The kids loved the live band, and we enjoyed the food and paradise atmosphere.
