Been here twice.. both times had reservations and still had to wait for a seat. Had fish tacos both times.. amazing. Would recommend the Mahi. Beer selections are good but expensive compared to other locations around town. Another Houghton staple, definitely recommend.

My only complaint is no tap beer. Everything else, including the service was great. Fish & Chip special has large portions of fish. Key lime pie for dessert was perfect with that little tart-bite behind the jaw.

Great family restaurant. My kids enjoy eating with the fishes and getting a balloon at the end of the meal. Staff is friendly and quick to serve (My cup has never been dry).

Had the fish & chips dinner here. It was excellent. Also ordered the onion rings as appetizer. Wonderful rings - best I have ever had. If you want to eat well in Houghton, try Joeys. Good service too.

This was our first time there and we'll be back. Fish and chips were great, clam chowder was awesome, and the coconut shrimp is was out of this world! It is a fun place to eat!

We needed a place to eat before a MTU Hockey game. Saw Joey's awning in downtown Houghton and stopped in. The house speciality is fish and chips so we ordered it up with perch as the fish. The food came hot and to order. The...More
