Always love joes! Nice location and good food. It's a little pricey, but good food for the money. Staff was very nice and helpful. Kaila was our waitress. She made sure we had everything we needed.

I had a free appetizer coupon so got crab nachos at Joe's. The landing is a marvelous place to visit and be sure to see the water/fire show it's free

One of our fave places to eat. Gluten free menu has expanded. Daughter and I shared classic steam pot and it was delicious best part no reaction from celiac daughter! The boys had regular menu items and they were pleased, too.

Asked for a nice quiet table, and got one! Overlooking the river, and I could hear my audiobook just fine (it wasn't very crowded). Good standard chain seafood. Excellent waiter. Very good cup of lobster bisque, and a platter with clams, bacon-wrapped shrimp, fish/chips, crab cake, with a little coleslaw. Food was fine, nothing special, and pretty expensive - but... More
