We went to Jubilee Joe's on a Friday evening. The restaurant was crowded and very busy. We were very pleased with the prompt food service. The fried green tomatoes topped with fresh crabmeat were crisp and delicious. The seafood gumbo was some of the best! Fresh, fried shrimp was cooked to perfection. We look forward to going again soon!

Good fresh seafood, reasonably priced, quick service, clean, and quirky place. First time to stop in and will be going back for my seafood fix.

Food was average, but overpriced. Have never been to a seafood restaurant where hush puppies count as a side item or where you are charged for a slice of butter!! Service was the worst part. Not sure if they were understaffef or what, but had to refill my own water. Would not go back again.

We decided to give the place a try after walking by. Being from Louisiana, we were skeptical. From the beginning we were impressed. The staff was very friendly and the service was great. I started with the chargrilled oysters.....not Drago's in New Orleans but excellent. The only thing to make them better would be more juices. They were too dry... More

The service was outstanding, and the food was delicious! The mimic of Louisiana's food and seasoning was spot-on. We were pleased with the price, service, and cleanliness of the establishment.

I've been to Jubilee Joe's many times they have awesome crawfish. I never had anything there that wasn't fantastic. It is a place that I would & have driven across town to go eat. They are reasonably priced and the service is generally really good. Staff are friendly.

I will say the food is quite tasty. Everything we have tried on our several visits has been seasoned well with authentic Cajun flavor. However, the portion size seems small for the price of the food. While the food is good, I feel the atmosphere is lacking. I'm not a fan of how the seating is arranged. It just does... More

We regularly go and enjoy the low country boil with Cajun sides and a pitcher of Sam Adams seasonal. Wife LOVES it. Sometimes the royal reds seem a bit over cooked but they are often spot on.

We visit here often and the food is always good. Service is great and so are the prices. Cajun food is second only to that of New Orleans or our Cajun relatives!
