“Mmm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

My husband visited Joe's for the first time last night... The service and food are great once you get seated... It is very busy and we had about a 1 hour wait... But the service and food are worth the wait! (The fire grilled queen crab bucket and strawberry peach sangrias are DELICIOUS) We will be back on our next trip!

“Nice atmosphere”

Our family of three had the steam pots they were very yummy but we liked the location and atmosphere best, right on the water at Branson landing.

“Super busy restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Good margaritas, okay fish, expensive crab, but our waiter in the bar area was very efficient. There's a nice view of Lake Taneycomo from the dining room.

“Not the best Joes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

The portions here seemed super tiny. We got two steam pots and a fish plate.

There was half a set of crab legs (2 diff) kinds and shrimp in mine. The crab legs were puny...no bigger round than a toddlers pinkie. It tasted good, but was not the same "quality wise" when compared to other Joe's we have visited in the past.

Our bill was right at $100 for three of us(not including tip). I left feeling hungry still and we had ordered an appetizer as well (crab nachos).

If we are ever in Branson again we will probably not be returning here.
