I visited Joey's Shrimp House while in the city. The staff was very friendly. The place was quaint Caribbean vibe with some seafood decor. I started off with a rum drink. It was very potent I had to ask the waitress to dilute it. (I'm not complaining she was very generous with the alcohol ) she kindly added more pineapple... More

This is my second review of Joey's Shrimp House at 1432 North Western Avenue. As I've said previously, I am addicted to shrimp, any kind of shrimp, fried, grilled or peel 'n eat, shrimp cocktail, shrimp and grits, shrimp Jibarito, shrimp salad, If it's shrimp, I'll eat it. Fortunately, in recent years, a plethora of shrimp houses have sprung up... More

We were recommended this place by a nearby business. They have some good specials between Monday and Friday. We came during the 10am-3pm Lunch Special. Surprisingly, it wasn't packed in here. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. We opted to sit inside to look at the decor. It was clean and rather small seating area inside. I think if... More

I went in after work while their appetizers were half off, so I got the Fried Caribbean cheese. It was really tasty with the dipping sauce. For my main meal I ordered the shrimp jibarito. It was SO GOOD. It comes in sandwich form, but instead of bread on the top and bottom, it's fried plantains. The taste of the... More

On a stretch of Western Avenue not usually associated with fine dining - or dining at all - a new restaurant has opened (almost directly across the street from St Elizabeth Hospital). I stopped by with a friend who is wild about crab cakes and will go the extra mile for one. We went. The crab cake cost $4.00 all... More
