We've eaten here a number of times recently. The seafood is surprising good, being this far inland. I recommend the Caribbean Platter. Mushrooms are great also.

We miss having Joe's locations near us, so we were happy to find one in Birmingham where we were stopping on our way to Orlando. We have been seeing commercials for fried lobster bites and went here for dinner. Despite a full parking lot, we were still seated quickly at 5:00 before the real dinner rush. We shared the crab dip and it was fantastic. Crab, shrimp, cream cheese and Parmesan baked and served with chips. We then split the lobster bites. They were good, but perhaps the breading was a bit heavy. The sausage and cheese garlic grits, ear of corn, and garlic bread provided us with all we could eat. Dave, our waiter, was great keeping up with refills and bringing another ear of corn when the first one was cold. We anticipated this meal for 6 hours and it did not disappoint.

I would have to say this is one of the worst meals I have had in a long time. $100 for four people to eat prepackaged and frozen seafood is just ridiculous. I will say that our service was very good and our waiter did everything he could to make sure we were taken care of. We had some issues with our food being cold when it arrived and the manger was more than friendly and got us hot food like we ordered, too bad he couldn't do anything to make it taste any better. Needless to say this was my first and only trip to Joe's.
