Stopped in for a weekday lunch and it did not disappoint! Our server Tammy was attentive and helpful. Appetizer sampler with "Great balls of fire' and crab dip was a hit. Coconut shrimp was terrific as always. Joe's is not known for being inexpensive but lunch prices are reasonable. Location is on IH 35 so be prepared if you are... More

My last visit to a joe's was not a real pleasant experience. This visit renewed my faith in the franchise. Waitress and greeters were friendly, knowledgable and on point with their service without being intrusive. The lobster bisque was excellent, the cajun crab pot was good but actually a little closer to a curry flavor--good spice but not really cajun... More

Obviously a chain resturant bringing a touch of seafood to the Texas Hill Country. Both food and service was more than adequate and satisfied our seafood urges. Crab cakes not in the "Baltimore" class, but still, very tasty. Our server, Chy, was spot on.

Nice decorated place with plenty of seafood options. However I had to wait long before someone noticed me waiting for an order - maybe because it was kinda late around 9:30 PM. Had ordered Shark bite cocktail which was good. Along with fried Calamari which was ok - reason being some of the squids were so small that they were... More

Long wait to be seated. Long wait to get served. Food was just so-so. The bar didn't offer some basic drinks and was overpriced. We won't return.

I was leery since the only time I visited a Joe's it wasn't any good. This place redeemed Joe's for me. Our waitress was awesome and so was the food. It was right next to our hotel so we could walk over.

Service was okay. Crab dip was very good. Fish and chips were good. Coconut shrimp was not good. It was overlooked and had a strange flavor. This used to be one of my favorite places, but it is too inconsistent for me now.

This chain's restaurant provides quite wide selection of seafood-based steampots done in southern style - seafood, sausages, corn cob, potatoes cooked together with spices. Many other dishes available. Setup is simple, but servers provide friendly atmosphere and can do "happy birthday greetings". Although selection of steampots diminished over last years, they still have good choice of baskets with lobsters, shrimp,... More

After visiting this location at least once a month for four years, we've noticed a steady decline in seevice and quality. Our visits in May, June, and July have all been disappointing. In May the manager credited the shrimp dinner I ordered. The shrimp were ordered boiled in the shell but had been butterfly cut and were overcooked. In June,... More
