Had a great dinner at Joe´s. The seafood is very delicious. The place as a great personality, and the service is not great but it is pretty good. No wifi there. But theres no need as you do not get bored at this place.

Had dinner late one night with a couple of colleagues. Still serving after 10pm in the bar area which was useful. Seafood, especially crab a specialty however there are other options. I had the fish and chips which was good, no complaints. Service was fast and friendly

The staff was polite and friendly, the place had a good vibe..but the food was mostly inedible. The crayfish boil had lots of legs and few bodies, the blackened fish taco had no blackening spice, and the margaritas were Limey and sweet.

Thank winefancy
