“Expensive bad food”
Review of Joe's Place - CLOSED

Reviewed 27 October 2013

We ate here on our day trip to the island. While the service was fast, the food was not very good and very expensive. For two meals of fish and chips and a couple of soft drinks, our bill came to over forty dollars (before the tip). The fish had a strong fishy taste and was greasy instead of flaky. I would not recommend this place.

Sorry to see them go after being in Avalon for so long. Island company made a mistake by not renewing their lease. GOOD FOOD.

Why as a second to last resort? Because there is actually one place worse than this, and it's Sally's next door. Food was edible. Service? Where? There was potential, just not much enthusiasm. With a little better service and atmosphere, maybe. For the money, not even close. Can't recommend, unless you're only other choice is Sally's. I actually think Sally's and Joe's are owned/operated by the same people. After eating at both, it would make sense if this is true.

My friends and I stopped at Joe's for breakfast. The portions were big enough to share. The coffee was good and always refilled as was everyone else's drinks.

Fast service and seriously mediocre food at breakfast. The premises are cute, but the coffee was weak, the eggs overlooked and the toast untimely. Would not go again.
