Coconut joes was phenomenal. Great food and awesome service. Beach view incredible. Perfect margaritas and mixed drinks are amazing. Reggae band really brought the ocean feel to life. I would go there everyday. Ten stars. :)

We have eaten at Coconut Joes on several trips to the Isle of Palms. It's a convenient location when you just wanna grab a quick bite to eat for dinner. The food is decent, nothing special. But it's a nice little beach bar to have some drinks and something to eat. In my opinion, the shrimp tacos are the best... More

We have dined at Coconut Joes during past visits to IOP and get what we expect - above average bar food with dependable service. This time, however, it was the combination of the below par food and mediocre service that had us leaving disappointed. Our server was super friendly and somewhat prompt, but consistently forgot things we ordered. This left... More

We had lunch here during a one day trip to the beach. The location and decor is fantastic and the background music selections was right up my alley. The food got mixed reviews from my party as the appetizers got thumbs up but the burgers did not. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

This place is truly in the BEST location. It's ocean front, to the point you can walk in off the beach. It's a great location. Sadly, the food is just......I don't even have a word. Upon walking in the place, there was a strong smell that was not pleasant. I don't know if it was old fish or what, but... More

I have contacted this reviewer privately about her experience, but I have yet to receive a response. I have been accused sometimes of being defensive about Coconut Joe's, and for good reason. We are a small family restaurant, and we all work our behinds off to provide the best dining experience for our customers. We take a lot of pride... More

We get here and get seated by a window with a beach front view that needed to be cleaned. Dust was on everything. The food was very basic crab cakes were ok but to much bread and seasoning. To top it off the staff were very snotty and acted like they could careless if any customers were there or not.... More

Nice little restaurant, cool decorations with painted chairs and tables. Husband loved his food. I personally wasn't as thrilled with the crab cake sandwich (too much sage for my liking) but their pimento was amazing. Waiter and other staff was super friendly. It is a bar, with live music, so it was a little loud... But went with the theme... More

We loved the food... Grouper sandwich was terrific although they didn't remember any custom requests. Our server was very friendly. Terrific beach-front location. Caution… restrooms are tiny.

So glad you liked the food and service. I KNOW! The restrooms are tiny! Before we put that second toilet in, we used to have dance parties in there! :) It's too bad, but we can't build out beyond our current footprint. More

This is our spot to go when we are in IOP. Usually music on the rooftop - reggae, country, folk, beach - with drinks. Food is dependable and good. A cold brew after a day on the beach make Coconut Joe's a perfect place to end a day. Always fun, plus great views of the beach if you eat on... More

Description
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.
