We visited Joe Jack's with a large group that included 2 small babies and a 3 year old with 6 other adults. They were quick to accommodate us and the service didn't skip a beat.

We went for dinner and sat upstairs. The octopus entree was delicious and super tender and came whole for an amazing presentation. It was slow cooked with chorizo and potato.

Best mojito I've ever had. The ginger house special was very tasty as well. Food was decent. Cool interior. Service friendly but a bit disorganised.

We shared a whole red snapper. Excellent. The iceberg lettuce salad with blue cheese is great. Always have to wait a little but well worth it.

The mojitos were great but did not care for the margaritas. Tried the fish tacos. The fish had too much breading. I prefer MahI Mahi instred of red snapper.
