“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I had never been to Joe Mama's in all the years I've stayed in Port St Joe and went with two friends. The food is excellent, the house salad for 2 people fed three of us, the make your own pizza was not too much for one person and the Pot of Chocolate was to die for, the 3 of us shared one but I will have my own next time! The staff are very friendly too. We went for the Early Bird dinner and the place got busy very quickly. Well worth a visit!

“A very pleasant surprise”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

We ordered it to go and 30 minutes later (when we got to our condo at CSB) it was still very good. I can imagine how good it would be eating it right out of the oven at the restaurant. A definate must try if you're in the mood for pizza! 2 thumbs up!

Thank you for your positive review. You are quite correct that the pizzas that are eaten at our restaurant right after they come out of the wood fired oven are far superior to the "take out" pizzas our customers request. Many wood fired pizzerias don't do carry out for that reason. The great qualities that are imparted by the wood fired oven are lost as soon as you put it in a box and close the lid. We really hope you'll try "dining in" with us again the next time you are in the area. You'll notice a great difference it taste and texture of the pizza hot out of the oven.

“Best Clam Chowder”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We've eaten here about 8 times. Always go there when in the area. We love the pizza. Always get sausage, pepperoni & extra cheese. We think its the best pizza in all of the places we travel & live. The clam chowder is great. My husband, who is not a true seafood lover says the only thing wrong with it is it has too many clams. A seafood lover would think that's the best thing about it. The service is excellent & especially spring break season they are crowed & usually have a wait of 20 to 30 minutes sometimes longer. They close at 9 pm but are always very gracious even if the seat you at a few minutes before 9 . They never rush you out even after closing.

“As good a pizza as you'll find”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Wood fired pizza, great salads and home-made Sangria. Get there early 'cause the place fills up with locals and tourists by 6:60. They also make home-made clam chowder sometime that is just plain wonderful.

“Very good food”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Four of us had dinner, had to wait ten minutes, no big deal. Had a craft beer at the bar and waited. This night they had two florida beers, two michigan beers and a beer from Georgia. After being seated, my wife ordered a wine flight, quite unique. The menu consists manly of pizza, however there were a few sandwiches. The appiteizers and salad were very good. Salad fed four and tossed table side. We had pizza, which one of the the girls pronounced the best she had ever had. The crust was tasty, however the bottom could have been done more. Cheesecake for desert was excellent. The best dinner this trip. Go there and enjoy.
