We have been there several times. First time reviewing only because I believe it is pricey 4 a chain restaurant for what you spend you could go to a local restaurant and get much better flavors and value. There are really no complaints other than when you see the bill.

Nice service from Tina. Great value for business or family. Well-cooked shrimp. Soggy French fries, but who had room anyway? Tina was an exceptional server.

Joe's here isn't as good as the ones I know in SoCal, but the atmosphere and food are still very good. I definitely think it's one of the better seafood chains out there, so if you're thinking of going to a seafood chain, this is a good choice.

I went her for dinner. The waitress was pleasant and provided goo service. The food was mediocre, having the East Side Platter. They have very few beers on TAP a large selection would be an improvement. The seat of the booth I was in was ripped. The décor fits the style of the restaurant is the same as all the... More

My fiancee and I went just before closing, we would have not known. They were very patient with us and had a jovial mood. The drinks were strong and sweet, trhe food was succulent with a fresh seafood taste. We will be back.

I went with a large group for lunch mid-day. Despite the large group, we were seated promptly and the very on-top-of-it server. She was very good at keeping our orders straight. Outside of the restaurant, but visible on the inside, was a large play area for the kids who are waiting on their food. What a great idea. The kids... More

Ordered a Crab Cake Caesar Salad, but with shrimp instead of the Crab Cake. OMG!!! Nothing but lettuce topped as high as possible on the plate with 5-small shrimp all for just $12.95. What a rip-off!!!!!! We told the manager this was very disappointing and they should be ashamed. The shrimp were cocktail size. We won't be back there again.... More
