We love coming to Joe's, especially for the birthday's!! My 2 daughters and I celebrate together and this time, I was the one to get embarrassed....I had to run around the restaurant shaking a "rattle" and when I was told to stop I literally cried and said boo hoo I'm old! Oh yeah, all while wearing a "diaper"! Good times!... More

I ordered garlic crab with corn on the cob and potatoes. Very small slices of garlic covered the dish but the garlic flavor was missing. The food was good just taste different in California!

The manager denied that my crab smelled like ammonia and argued that the crab was good. I told him that I had eaten at this location several times and ordered the same dungeness crab steampot each time. My partner also confirmed that the crab smelled like ammonia. I have run restaurants as a general manager, work in the food industry,... More

It's a fun place, good food, but pay extra for hush puppies! A real fun party atmosphere, plenty of drinks, etc. Waiters dance in the isles at times...!

Several months ago we were here and everything was really good. This visit however was a complete reversal. There were six of us, five ordered drinks and they never came and time went by and we could see our drinks sitting on the bar for a good ten minutes, caught the waiters eye and pointed to our drinks , it...

This restaurant is is very good and the lines are long at meal times. Except for the music the ambiance is very pleasing.

My wife and I visited this restaurant for lunch on Thursday, March 3, 2016. We arrived at 12:15 pm, and the restaurant only had about 4 tables occupied. The menu was very expensive. Featured items were $25 - $30 each. My wife wanted grilled fish, but the only meal was $19. We settled on the lunch menu. She had a... More

The staff was excellent. WE ordered their lobster special which was delicious BUT I felt a little skimped on the size of the lobster. All and all was a nice dining experience.

I ate here based on recommendations from friends who said this place was comparable to Red Lobster but cheaper. There's no comparison. I found the quality to be lacking. Don't get me wrong, the food is OK but I've had better seafood in most other seafood places.

We went last week with a group on Friday night. Place was full but we managed to get right in. Food was good, not great. My wife an I shared the lobster boil for Two. Two lobsters, clams, spiced sausage, red skin potatoes and one ear of corn. What are we supposed to do share bites? It would not break... More
