“Good crab”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

My daughters and I went to Joe's for lunch. One daughter does not eat seafood and was happy with the selections. She enjoyed a grilled chicken ceaesar salad.

My other daughter and I split a bucket of crab and a bucket of shrimp. There was enough food for both of us. The shrimp was over seasoned. The queen crab was very good.

Service was very good. I would recommend this restaurant.

“Too Too”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

First time here last night. I think the training spiel given the servers was too, too much. Our smiling, cheerful server must have asked us 10 times how we were enjoying our meal, etc. The food was pretty good, came quickly so there are no complaints about this aspect. During our meal the piped-in music became quite loud and soon there were 7 servers all doing a line dance to it while clapping their hands. We found it disruptive. The upshot of this review is that this is not the place to go to if you are looking for a nice quiet relaxing meal or if you are elderly. Other than that, the food and beer were good and if noise, hovering almost intrusive servers don't bother you, it'll be o.k.

“Very enjoyable meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

Having read a number of negative reviews of this restaurant, we were a little apprehensive about our visit. We were therefore pleasantly surprised with the experience. The food was all of high quality and the service was excellent, however it should be noted that the restaurant was not very busy. The price was reasonable. We will definitely revisit.
