Food was good. Nothing special. Very noise. Not crouded at all but still noise. The waiter was full of himself but gave us good service. I agree with another review "seem to be pricey."

Family likes to eat here & although seafood is not my forte, the chicken & salads are good. Atmosphere is nice. There's an outdoor play place for children which is an added plus.

This was my first trip to this Joe's and I gotta tell you it was as awesome as one would expect from this seafood institution. I had the combo pot of snow crab, Dungeness crab and of course lobster! All portions were good and since I kept the lid on my pot, each portion remained warm throughout the meal. I... More

Joe's is a lively place and the large playground as you enter tells you this is a family friendly place. We had a fairly large group and our service was excellent. Midway through the meal the staff started dancing and encouraged diners to join them so that was fun. The food was OK, not spectacular by any means. The prices... More

I'm a lover of crab legs and this place has nice crabs. A friend and I got here a bit late but the service was really good. I mentioned to my server (who was really a great guy) that the Crab platter was a bit light on the Queen crab, next thing I know another plate of Queen crab shows... More

Several of us headed straight to this place. Four of us took a table. We ordered Garlicky Mussels and Bluemoon Draft One Pint each. Next we ordered Sunset Fire Grilled Joe's Classic Steampot and 3 x Sunset Fire Grilled Dungness Bucket. Had another 2 x Bluemoon Draft One Pint Service was excellent. The food was really great.

Went there around 8pm on a weekday. Was served quite promptly for round of Blue Moon beer. Ordered the mussels for appertisers. It was great and served quite promptly. The wait for our mains took a bit longer than expected. Crabs were very fresh and well prepared. The sauce was a little salty but together with the beers it was... More

Dinner with hubby. We haven't been in a while. The menu was short, the restaurant was not even close to full and the food was okay. We had more than enough food for us to both have lunch the next day. It was good but not high end for the price that we paid.

We had been traveling all day and finally reached our hotel. This was amazingly close to our hotel and it was great service. We were seated immediately and our waitress was busy the whole time, but always found time for us. She was wonderful, I wish I could remember her name. She was so friendly and recommended a wonderful meal... More
