We spent a week in Florida, ate at different seafood places every day and I have to say that Joe Lees is one of the best seafood places we've eaten at - EVER!! The fried shrimp, catfish and oysters were excellent!! The coleslaw with shrimp in it was an added bonus and the catfish just melts in your mouth. Thanks Tripadvisor for letting us know about this off the beaten path gem - we WILL be back!!

This is truly "where the locals go"...it is family owned and operated. Blue Plate Special for 5.99 is a bargain .....choice of popcorn shrimp, catfish strips, chicken fried chicken or chicken fried steak, choice of about 10 sides, served with delicious roll. Can't beat it and can't eat it all....very generous portions.

We manage the RV Resort across the street and recommend it to any one who asks where they can get really good food.......

Highly recomment you visit.

Our shrimp was very good, some in our crowd got the special and liked it very much. The atmosphere is plain, it looks like an old warehouse, the floor is concrete. We will go back, we were all impressed with the quality of the food.

We love the blue plate special for lunch. Usually get the popcorn shrimp or fish strips along with fries and shrimp slaw. The food is very good and plenty of it for the price.

A hole in the wall? Just about. But without a doubt the best seafood I ever tasted. I mean, folks, Joe Lee's had been around since 1944! That ought to meen something! Since Hurricane Ike, the whole operation here on the coast is operated out of the one location in Clear Lake Shores but the food is great. I would not come to the coast ever, without eating at Joe Lee's.
