“Excellent local restaurant.”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

My wife and I found this place via Trip advisor and we were happy. Good sized portions and fair value. Not a fancy place by any means. It is a local restaurant with decorations and pictures that have been gathered. You place your order at the front counter and claim your seat while your food is prepared and then they will call you up to get your order. This is the place you can come and relax without spending a fortune on food.

“Best Fried Shrimp Around!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Joe Lee knows shrimp. Joe Lee knows fish. This is our go to place when we are hungry for fried shrimp or fish. It's not fancy, but boy is it good! When you order a fish sandwich here, you get flounder. If you haven't tried it, you should.

“Skip Kemah restaurants and come here!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

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!!

“Great food, excellent prices, family owned and operated!”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

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.

“good food, not fancy”
Reviewed November 25, 2011

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.
