We were looking for someplace different that both my husband and I and the kids could enjoy. Coconut Joe's fit the bill. The outdoor play area and outdor seating was great; with views of the water, a fun pirate themed playground, and beach music, it was a fun and relaxing meal. The food was good and included traditional Hawaiian fare. The portion sizes were large and a doggie bag of leftovers provided lunch for the following day. My picky eaters both found dishes on the kids menu and cleaned their plates. In fact, they have been asking for a return visit. I liked that the kids' menu included a shrimp dish in addition to the common food we always see offered to the younger crowd. The service was top notch and our server was fun and very efficient. We want to visit again--sans kid--so that we can enjoy the live entertainment that is offered. Coconut Joe's is a fun place that offers some really good menu items that are different and delicious. I recommend giving it a try.
