This is a chain restaurant and a bit rough interior and exterior decor. The staff is mostly teens and very young adults. Food quality lacks in variety. Mostly (overly)fried fish and seafood. Food takes a long time to get to your table. Drinks and cocktails...More

Just had lunch there and the crowd was very light. We had great food and great service. We had some questions and all were answered perfectly and we had a wonderful lunch of Shrimp. We were treated well and enjoyed out lunch.

We had wonderful service for a Saturday afternoon lunch before the Rangers game. The food was good and really hit the spot.

We like to go to Joe's before ball games at the park. It had been a while since we have been to this Joe's. First thing we noticed is that they were understaffed yesterday. We had to wait quite a while to be seated even...More

I've never paid $11.00 for a beer in my life let alone a domestic beer. Who charges 11 bucks for a Shiner in Texas, Joe's that's who. Ridiculous. It took away my whole experience just looking at the bill for 3 beers at $33.00!!

Our first time to visit this location. Patio was clean, service was good, food was accurate and good. Specialty mixed drinks were good and reasonably priced. We'd go back.

Husband and I had dinner there for my birthday, lobster was way over cooked and rubbery. And apparently indigestible. Was sick for 3 days. Will never eat there again.

Least you would probably have better luck. We've dined at Joe's many times but back home, shout out Lubbock TX! We expected the same service but that was not what we got, we were quickly seated, but the menu was so different, food was over...More
