We have been coming to Coconut Joe's for years and never been disappointed. The atmosphere and beach views are amazing. The food is really good and service is prompt. Love Isle of Palms.

You cannot beat the views of a restaurant/bar that is on the beach. That being said, we've gone to this establishment several times and have been pleased with the meal.

My husband and I were visiting this area for our anniversary. We were looking for a quick bite of breakfast before heading out to do some tours. So glad we stumbled on this place. The food was outstanding. I had the crab cake skillet and it was delicious. The place is right on the beach and I bet is a... More

Ok, first rule for Coconut Joe's is don't go here if you're on a diet. Lots of their best offerings are fried; yes, deep fried with batter. Furthermore, if you get a basket of hush puppies (like fritters for those who don't know what hush puppies are--and why would you go here and not get them?) you will eat every... More

This restaurant is on Ocean Blvd on the ocean side, with great views, plus great food. It has q full bar, indoor and outdoor seating, a menu of many choices, with fish dishes that were delicious.

This was the closest place to eat for lunch but it could have been better. Jambalaya was mediocre and oysters were over cooked.

We enjoyed shrimp' n grits, along with stuffed tilapia for dinner. I was surprised at how good it was, because the restaurant looks like just a little local place overlooking the beach. We sat in the winter-enclosed outside area, which was plenty cozy. Service was very good - Christine took good care of us, with excellent entree recommendations.

Went for lunch after a few hours on the beach. We sat outside on the patio. Great place to relax enjoy the day.

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.
