My husband and I came here on our first night. It was Halloween and surprisingly not too busy. We were seated immediately. Our waitress was Ashley and she did a fantastic job. I'm not a huge seafood fan so I ordered the fish and chips which were excellent. My husband was happy with his food although it was a little... More

I loved the crab legs! The waitress was super nice and helpful. Our seafood pot came out and looked a little weak so she brought out an extra cluster!

We arrived after a 10 hour drive and were exhausted. They seated us at about 9:30 and it was basically empty. We were too tired to handle crab legs so we got crab cakes. They were very good. Prices are reasonable and service was fast and friendly.

My wife and I both love this Joe's, at this restaurant we seem to always get great service and always great food. It is clean and organized and handicap friendly. And the crab nachos are to die for.

I ordered out and that could have been the mistake. Nothing, absolutely nothing special! My order was thrown in a to go box and by the time I got... More

We always go here when we attend the IGES. Normally it's great. This time service was off and our food came out cold. Really disappointed since it's tradition with our group.
