Found a lot of food on my plate and not to much taste .......perhaps this establishment may have improved since I visited nearly eighteen months ago.

Went here for Good Friday. Got served food that was so overcooked it vaguely resembled seafood. Obviously the year 10 work experience kids were unleashed on the kitchen that night whilst chef had Good Friday off. We were served by the oriental version of Manuel (Che???) who stuffed up most of our order and over charged us for the privilege.... More

With the level of quality options for food in the area, I thought this place would be better. I would compare it to a fast food style fish & chip shop with not very many options on the menu, particularly if you don't feel like eating chips.

We actually just go back from our Australia trip that took us to Sydney and Perth for several weeks in June. A couple we met in Perth told us about Fremantle so we wanted to check it out. I wish I would have asked for recommendations (of where to eat) so we didn't waste our time with this place. I... More

Since moving to Perth we have really struggled to find fresh seafood!!!!!! Cannot believe it. We stubbled across this gem one Sunday afternoon and we were so pleased with the fresh seafood on offer. The portions were huge and the prices were very reasonable. The wait staff were polite, friendly and the place had a relaxed vibe.

Was in Perth for a week. We loved the food so much we visited 3 times. Parking hard to get in peak times so allow extra time. Funky decor inside & really looks like a shack. Great Pina Coladas - yum! I had the Western Australian Crayfish on the 3 visits, they made a mornay sauce & it was a... More

What a joy it was to be cought in a rain squall outside Joe's because otherwise we may never have dropped by. Quirky decor with excellent blues jazz playing in the background this was our introduction to a good fish and chippery. Only a hand full of guests to top it off. Oysters Killpatric followed by battered local schnapper n... More

Our family of four visited Joe's over the weekend for lunch, a perfect cool sunny day! We ordered the fish n chips, salt n pepper calamari, garlic prawn pasta and the sea food platter for one. Serves were large, hence recommend the entree. Avg. price $25-$35. The tartare sauce and light chili sauce was good. If you have the entertainment... More

We went to this restaurant a while back and I thought it had gone down a bit in appearance inside - it seemed a bit stark and matched it's 'Shack' name. The outlook over the harbour was very pleasant. The service was good especially our waitperson 'Maddie' who couldn't do enough for us. There is an excellent choice of wines... More
