If you are looking for a nice place to take grandma and grandpa for lunch, this is the place. Comfort food. Almost non-existant wait staff, elevator music and if you are younger that 65, you won't enjoy the atmosphere. In short. Good, almost spice free...food. Low sodium built into all entrees and lots and lots of blue and grey (hair!). Have fun.More

One of my wife's and my favorite restaurants. Start with the gumbo, followed by the grilled fish (salmon, redfish, red snapper, etc.) with vegies done just the way you like them, and you are in for a feast. My wife always gets the fried shrimp...which she really enjoys (and, she rates seafood restaurants by their fried shrimp!). The wine list is not extensive (or all that expensive either) but is very adequate. The staff is pleasant and social distancing is followed.More

Well we love Joyce's and go there at least once or twice a month. Family owned for many years, Francisco and his sister martha are hard working, wonderful to their staff and the food is excellent. It is hard to be excellent as a seafood...restaurant. As soon as the restaurants were prohibited from allowing dining in, we began urging family and friends to pick up orders. We recently ordered several items we thought would be tricky to try as take out. My husband's grilled catfish was flawless. The salads were cold and fresh. The soup excellent and better the next day for lunch. Even the "oysters shooters", more or less friend oysters nachos were wonderful. How did they do that? Place your order by phone, and when you arrive, call again to let them know you are there. They bring the food to you so no crowding up inside the door. TIP WELL please so the servers, who they are valiantly trying to keep employed, and who are now delivering food to cars and homes, will benefit. So you can stay safe. And keep a worthwhile well run business in business through the madness...More

The crab cakes were phenomenal. And I'm very difficult to please as far as crab cakes. There was a lot more crab than breading. And the dipping sauce was paired perfectly. Over a was very pleased with my meal.

Joyce's Seafood is the best and Carla my server was so pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu, everything was delicious. The atmosphere was relaxing; the food was fresh and my drink was 100% satisfying. I can honestly rate Joyce's at a 10. If you want...good food and drinks try Joyce's and ask for Carla.More

We've been in Houston for over 40 years and never heard about this little treat. Very good seafood and nice menu of selections. Service was excellent. Prices very reasonable. Very quiet and easy to visit with table mates. We will go back to enjoy again.

The fresh snapper was a delight. I couldn't resist 1/2 dozen of oysters, which were intriguingly good and different from the European oysters we're used to. Veyr friendly staff.

Lively seafood restaurant offering fresh wild caught fish. We started with asparagus topped with lump crab meat and fried crab fingers. Both were delicious! We enjoyed red snapper with crab meat next. Ended with yummy ice cream atop an apple tart and key lime pie....Delicious! Excellent waitstaff.More

Our experience is that they will prepare your food any way you wish. Steph does not like any form of spice and she has had no issues. We go there two or three times a month and have never been disappointed.

Always fried shrimp, occasionally lobster. Have enjoyed the lobster enchilada many times.
