Food was marginal at best. $20+ for a bad seafood dinner will keep me away for another 10 years. It was loud and not conducive to a peasant dining experience. The staff tried to be helpful but the food was not good.

The food was ok.... No bread. Potato was not thoroughly cooked. The lobster my son ordered was very scrawny. The Queen Crab was more like little shrimp crab. Was not impressed with portion or quality. Was ok. Server was attentive

I hadn't been to Joes in several years. They have a nice climbing structure for the kids. You can sit outside and enjoy your meal while your young ones have a great diversion. Server was wonderful. Manager very personable. Good experience overall. Crab was great.

We visited Joes on July27th.
This was our second visit. We tried it the first time about 9 years ago, but was very disappointed and had vowed not to return.We were asked to visit again by our daughter and her boyfriend. They stated that all the shenanigans and "Conga lines" had been toned down, so we decided to give it another chance.
Bottom line is this...... The food is very good. We all enjoyed what we ordered. My biggest complaint is with the atmosphere..... The hostess that calls your name is VERY LOUD. The speaker not only screams outside, but inside as well and this is very annoying. We didn't see any "Conga Lines", but ever so often they would crank up the music and servers would take off to the center of the restaurant to line dance. Just got to hope you don't need anything while she's out there shaking her booty, because it ain't a short tune!!
Fair is fair though and I admit that this is a personal thing for us. Some folks come for exactly this type of atmosphere and they are well rewarded. It's just not our thing.
