Coconut Joe's is a family-friendly restaurant right on the beach. We have a wide range of entrees on our menu: burgers, seafood, Caribbean specialties, entree salads, wraps, and plenty of choices for the children. During the season, we have live music at our rooftop bar every night, and this is a fun place to be if there is a wait for your table. We offer call-ahead seating up to 45 minutes ahead of your anticipated arrival. During the cooler months, we offer a spectacular view, and a quieter environment to enjoy your meal.

The rooftop bar is open during the season, but in winter, many days are just too chilly and windy for folks to be comfortable up there. We hope you come back to see us during the season; our rooftop rocks! More

Ok, so we went to Isle of Palms for the day from Charleston. The beach is a nice beach and the restaurant is at a good location almost right next to the pier and the state park. There is direct access from the beach using the public walkaway right next to the restaurant. Their is seating upstairs on a rooftop... More

If your liking for fine dining, move on, this place is totally about the view. It's a 3 story restaurant and bar right on the beach. The food is decent and prices are good.

It may be that it was the week between Christmas and New Years and was busier than usual. But today was not a good day for this place. When the food finally arrived 1:40 minutes after we did, it had been sitting in the kitchen a little while, didn't look very appetizing, and the portions didn't line up with the... More

I have messaged this customer twice to try to resolve his complaint, but he has not responded. There is ALWAYS a manager on duty to solve any problems, but no one remembers this person fussing about his food taking too long. It is absolutely impossible that the food took anywhere near that long; the server would have been raising holy... More

Nice little bar on the beach. Great location and decent bar food with a seafood emphasis. Good place to meet your friends and tip back a few cold ones.

Large family lunch at Coconut Joe's in Isle of Palms, SC. They accommodated our large party of 22 just fine. There were hardly any people in the restaurant besides our party so that seemed a little strange considering it's right on the beach and seems like a local icon. The service was very good and the food came out pretty... More

I'm glad we were able to accommodate your large group, and that you had good service. It seems you are wondering why we were so quiet. It's always like that in December! Nice, quiet, serene, peaceful….but in the summer we are rocking! :) More

Not a planned restaurant but turned out to be a very good place to each and enjoy a beautiful ocean view. We had the "George’s Gumbolaya", "Coconut Shrimp", and the "Grilled Grouper". The latter dish of grouper was PERFECT - NEVER had better and can highly recommend.
