I was initially taken back by the actual restaurant appearance. Once inside it was roomy enough and friendly staff. The food was wonderful. Oysters enjoyed by most and others feasted on grouper and some on shrimp. There were no complaints from our large group. The key lime pie left a bit to be desired. I thought it was fresh but clearly not. Other than that it was a good meal for a fair price.

Good food with generous portions (too much for me). Service was fast when we ate there. The atmosphere was not the best though. It was very noisy and not real clean. View in what they called "outside" was spoiled by very dirty windows. I much prefer Up the Creek Raw Bar.

We have come to Papa Joe's every summer vacation for the past 4 years and it has been wonderful every year. I have noticed portions have gotten smaller but we still leave full. Awesome grouper and popcorn shrimp. Hushpuppys yum.. I would definitely recommend if you want great seafood. Must try!!

We ate seafood at this restaurant. It was a little hard to find. We were in the parking lot and thought we were in the wrong place. There were 12 of us and we had lots of specific requests. The food was excellent, the service great. Would highly recommend it for some good seafood.

While on vacation we have had the luxury of eating at Papas at least once over the last 7 years and it has never disappointed us. This year was no different. The Bay was just opened on our first visit and we ate at Papa Joes on August 5th and 7th and the food seemed better than ever. Whether its fried or grilled, it is all delicious. I love the fresh Oyster combinations as an appetizer and then top it off with fresh scallops, shrimp and grouper. We have never had better seafood anywhere. While its not the ritzy joint some may like, its casual atmosphere with the fresh local seafood more than makes us happy. Can't wait till next year.
