Just returned from The Joint, on holiday so never been here before. Jeremy our server was brilliant, very informative, welcoming and attentive....thanks Jeremy. Had pizzas, and I don't like pizzas, but these pizzas were the best we had ever tasted, and what made them taste even better was that it was a wednesday..Half Price Pizza Day!!!! Bargain.

We won't return to The Joint. Our server seemed fairly new and wasn't familiar with most of the menu items we asked about, though she did say the mini corn dogs from the kids menu were "good". We ordered those and found them to be terrible. Very salty hot dog centers.
One of our party ordered a pizza. We asked if the pizzas were done on thin crust and were told they were, but when the pizza arrived we saw that it was actually prepared on a pita. I thought I read somewhere that the pizza oven was wood fired - definitely a selling point - but was disappointed to see a decidedly gas fired flame in the back of the oven, and there was no wood oven smell either. The pizza was warmed up enough to melt the cheese, but there was no cooking involved.
I ordered a risotto with grilled shrimp. The shrimp were small and over cooked, and the risotto was bland and not exactly hot when it hit the table.
Overall, we felt the food and service did not meet the expectations of the decore and marketing. I know this is supposed to be a casual, inexpensive 'joint' to relax and enjoy some munchies, but there was no value here. Even the beer selection was limited compared to Rum Runners next door, and under the same management. Give me a wood oven pizza on a genuine pizza crust, piping hot risotto with a complex flavor profile and properly cooked shrimp, and corn dogs with at least decent quality dogs inside, all easily achievable for the same prices charged at The Joint.

We usually go to The Joint at least once when we visit Cape Coral every year. We always have a great experience and the food is delicious! The Fra Diablo pizza and OMG Burger are some of our favorite menu items.
