Many restaurants in Fairhope were closed on Monday, so when we arrived we didn't have much of a selection. Lucky for us this restaurant was open and right next to our hotel. The wait time at 7PM was one hour, so you can see it...More

Great atmosphere for a very small restaurant, great quality and superb attention. Lunch options are great! and will satisfy anybody in hunger. Only need to be patient, it might take a while to get the order but you won't regret waiting.

Very popular restaurant for visitors and locals. Small on the inside so arrive early as they fill up around noon. There are tables, booths and bar seating. We had the sushi lunch plate and also ordered tempura asparagus as the appetizer. All was very good....More

A small restaurant by most standards, but worth the wait if you're in a sushi mood. Great dishes prepared expertly. It can get cramped in there so we go during non-peak times.

Had dinner here last night with my boyfriend, we tried three different rolls and each one was delicious. It’s hands down some of the best quality of fish/sushi I’ve ever had. Will definitely be back.

My wife, son, and I decided sushi would be a good idea for lunch -- well they did (I don't eat it). That said ... I had a very fresh salad and the gyoza (dumplings). They sample several sushi rolls -- and loved each one....More

Master Joe's is the leading sushi restaurant in the area. Established in 2009, it has continuously been voted Best Restaurant on the Eastern Shore and Best Sushi for the entire Mobile Bay and Gulf Shores area by the local magazine "Laniappe". Joe's is located in the heart of downtown Fairhope. The long bar and banquette seating give a sence that you have been transported out of this quiant town and into the big city. The modern decor compliments the casual style. Joe Ou, owner of Master Joe's, and his crew of extremely talented chefs settle for nothing less than perfection. With an extensive array of sushi and other Japanese cuisine there is something for the adventurous and novice alike.
