Description: Coconut Joe's is a family-friendly restaurant right on the beach. We have a wide range of entrees on our menu: burgers, seafood, Caribbean specialties, entree salads, wraps, and plenty of choices for the children. During the season, we have live music at our rooftop bar every night, and this is a fun place to be if there is a wait for your table. We offer call-ahead seating up to 45 minutes ahead of your anticipated arrival. During the cooler months, we offer a spectacular view, and a quieter environment to enjoy your meal.

Stopped in around 3 pm after lunch crowd was gone. We were told the wait was 30 min. After an hour and 30min we finally got our food. The coconut hush puppies were awesome. Our meal was average. The restaurant offers a great view of the ocean.

I have messaged this reviewer. I can’t imagine any situation in which the food would take that long.

Had the fried pickles and Gumbolaya to start - both excellent. Ordered the Grouper and Spicy Shrimp - excellent.
Bacon Cheeseburger, asked for medium and advised all are cooked to the same color which apparently means over cooked and dried out, inedible. It shouldn’t be that difficult to cook a burger.
Mentioned to waiter and manager removed from bill which is a nice gesture but also meant that I didn’t have dinner. Learning how to cook a good burger shouldn’t be a challenge.

SMH. You had friendly service, a beautiful view, four food items that were excellent, and one item that you felt was over cooked, for which you were not charged. I’m also positive that we offered to get you something else. While I am sorry that you did not like your burger, I don’t understand why you would have rated us with two stars. That’s just unnecessarily mean.

Had lunch with my wife at the outside porch overlooking the dunes and ocean. I had a burger and she a salad with fries. Both were excellent and the fries were excellent as compared fries at all other restaurants we had a Shem creek and Mt Pleasant. Service was exceptional. A bit pricy but worth it. Definitely a return to restaurant.

You can either eat indoor or outdoor. Though there are no ceiling fans in the outdoor area, there was a nice breeze. We stayed next door at The Palms Oceanfront and ate here a few times. We really enjoyed the Coconut Shrimp, the BLT was okay only because there was a sliver of a tomato. Service is a little slow, but staff was friendly.

Thank you for your review. I will give the kitchen staff a heads up about tomato portions on a BLT.
