I take family, friends, clients and other business colleagues to Joyce's; especially for lunch.

Lunch features a quick and affordable seafood special, and they seldom recycle their ideas.

Joyce's is rustically decorated, but that's fine unless your guest is some snoot in a 3-piece suit. What I especially love about Joyce's, over and above their great food and good service is the quiet ambience that has meant for many a productive business lunch.

Have been meaning to put in a review for Joyce's for a good while, but didn't get it done until now. Have been going to Joyce's for many years and it's just a really cool place. The decor is nothing special, but Francisco and Martha (pronounced Marta) make you feel special every time you go in. Fantastic food and just a great out of the way place to spend a Friday afternoon with friends or clients! Whether your ordering the shrimp stuffed Jalapenos, one of the many seafood dishes, or the 18 oz Bone in Rib Eye (One of my favorite steaks in all of Houston) you wont be disappointed, or broke, when you leave.

This restaurant caters to an older neighborhood crowd. The staff is amiable and attentive. For the regular patrons, this restaurant would be convenient and predictable. There is no reason for anyone who lives outside a two mile radius to go there: The garden salad has fairly wide pieces of onion. The red beans and sausage is particularly tasteless. The "six-pack" sauce on the enchiladas was supposed to be a chipotle cream sauce. No sauce could be seen on them. The beer selection is anemic. The french fries are frozen, not fresh.

Joyce's has been in Houston for many years. It's a family run restaurant and is always very busy. The food is very good and the price is good too. They are members of Restaurant.com so worth printing out a gift certificate before you go.

At Joyces you are transported to a dining room that belongs off of Cape Cod and has nothing but family surrounding you. The seafood is fresh and prepared in various ways, including stuffed speckled trout, mahi, tuna, red fish, snapper, crab dishes and so much more. For those who don't love seafood the salads and filets are also amazing. If you have a special request the staff is more than happy to take care of it. A must go!
