“Beautiful Location on the River”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. Was there for dinner Fri 3/22 and had to wait for over an hour and half to get seated. Unfortunately we took a cab from the hotel so we had no way to leave and come back so had to wait, which wasn't that bad since the weather was nice and we enjoyed the beautiful location of this restaurant. Once we did get seated the service was fast and the food was great.

“Good crab, good service”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Folks in our party liked the crab. Other dishes seemed so-so. My fish was on the dry side, my chowder cold, but we did have a very large group. Service was excellent. If you have a large group, this is a good place to consider. I prefer Kingfish in Jeffersonville, but Joe's is a better choice for crab. For a small group, I'd recommend someplace like Bistro 301, though.

“Food and atmosphere good, Could he hotter”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Joe's has always been one of our family's favorite places to eat, even though it's a 150 mile drive from our home. The staff are excellent and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. The only problem on our last two trips, was that the food was luke warm. It still had a good taste, but I like my food hot when it hits the table.

“Great location, very poor food”
Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Great Location, service not the best, party of 4 no one could finish their food. Party ordered hush puppies, you'd think kinda hard to mess a ball of bread up, but burnt on outside runny on the inside......
