Do not let the size of the restaurant fool you because this place serves very good food, and some items on their menu even rival some of the more upscale restaurants in town. It not only tastes great but the price is right for the portions you get. They overstuff their plates and you will be more than satisfied. You can dine in or call in to carry out. When you call in to pick up your food, if it is not too busy, the food is normally ready within 15 to 20 minutes and piping hot because they cook everything fresh.

Ok, so the food is great, price is right, and service is fast, but also, the people who work there are super friendly and they always have a smile on their face for any and every customer who walks in that door. They know how to hussle when it is busy and still have the courtesy to smile and say hello to people as they just walk in. I have been going there for years now and everytime is just like the last, their food and service never changes because it is perfect. The girls that work the counter have wonderful personalities and are not shy at all. They really seem to like their job and they definitely like people. Their Crawfish Etoufee is my favorite on their menu.

okay first off the person who said they were terrible and had bad service has diffenetly mistaken them either for the mexican resturant next door or joe's crab shack. joe's seafood is a misture of seafood and chinese food nor did they ever get brought out or served liquor there. the food there is excellent and always at a reasonable price. the seafood is deliscious and the fried crawfish is to die for. the chinese food there is exceptionally good considering there isn't any good chinese food around. this is a awesome place to go get some food after your down hanging out or relaxing at the beach down the street!

This was an unexpected find on our last trip to Galveston. I am very familiar with the area and have visited most seafood places on the island with mixed results. Joe's is definitely local takeout - great prices on seafood - even have a few chinese dishes. The shrimp/seafood is coooked in cornmeal, southern style. It's a small establishment, so most patrons were ordering for takeout. Also have hamburgers and other non-seafood dishes. Great fried seafood for a great price without all the tourist hoopla.
