While we had to wait a while in the absence of reservations, the staff was very strange accommodating. Server was very attentive even though they were very busy. Kids enjoyed the impromptu entertainment. Will definitely return!!!

You go to Joe's for the view and fun. The food is mediocre and overpriced, but the servers are fun and the beach view is fantastic.

Great patio overlooking Jacksonville beach. Great portion size, lots of fried things. Drinks are strong. Access to public beach is next door for a stroll after dinner. Not too crowded during work week, 5 minute wait. Very friendly staff.
