Half Moon Bay Joes is right on the Cabrillo highway at the south end of Half Moon Bay. We had an early dinner here and for our group of four the bill came to $75 with dessert and tip. Service, provided by Juan, was excellent from start to finish. Their food is very good, with high quality ingredients and large... More

Don't waste your money on Calimari at the more expensive restaurants. The Calimari at Joe's is more flavorful, plentiful and lightly prepared. Luis H. our waitstaff - greeted us as friends.

I was pleasantly surprised to find how delicious and plentiful our food was. I ordered the French Dip with french fries. It was HUGE... More

Joe's reminds me of a good coffee shop that has everything you could want and more. The service is great, the food is plentiful. Great chocolate cake for desert.

We stayed at the Half Moon Bay Lodge and Joe's was next door so we went in for supper as we had pulled in rather late. I had the Chicken Burger and my wife had the eggplant parmesan. The eggplant breading was a little dry and the accompanying side of fries that came in the chicken burger looked inviting when... More

I stopped with my parents for dinner - just on a whim. What a great surprise. Wonderful, clean, and cozy, family style restaurant. The service is great and the food is delicious - like home-cooked meals. Friendly people too. We loved it! Oh...and leave room for the amazing desserts!

Stop by to get lunch. Clam chowder was great. The burgers are large and taste fabulous. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Whenever in Half Moon Bay, I always stop for breakfast at Joe's on Pacific Highway 1 just before the Ritz Carlton. The french toast is thick and eggy. Best I've ever eaten. Owner Pablo and staff are very friendly. Many of the customers seem to be locals, especially on Sundays.
