Lots of fun tearing into the bucket of goodness that Joe's serves up. Our group of 3 was easily satisfied by just two entrees and side salad or chowder. Crab, crab and more crab - delicious no matter how you have it prepared. The place is a bit noisy and definitely casual, but well worth the visit. Good value for all you get. The location is right on the beach, but no outside seating. A fair amount of stairs to climb, for anyone who this may be an issue.

Way too over cooked the food and only a little meat in the crab...LOUD Loud loud!!! $40 for a small pot of seafood wasnt worth it to walk away hungry. Wont do another Joe's. The waiter was very attentive and the view was super but that is about the only thingsthat were good.

Long wait, very noisy. Food was not good at all. There are so many better places around...It's like Chuck E Cheeese.

Good food and fun atmosphere. Hit the one at PB. They sing every hour and have fun with the customers.
