My sons wanted to go here for lunch. We like the view even on rainy days. They ordered fish tacos and a chicken sandwich. I ordered a chicken salad. Our chips and hot cheese dip appetizer arrived quickly. My sons really enjoyed the pineapple salsa....More

This restaurant just seemed dirty and in desperate need of a good updating. It was raining while we were in here so everything was shut up and boring. The food was drab and the beer was flat.

Well, we are sorry you didn’t enjoy yourself. I doubt we will update anytime soon, as we enjoy the memories that our funky old decor brings back. I hope the manager on duty brought a little sunshine to you when she resolved your issues.

Sit out on the back deck and enjoy a gorgeous view of the ocean with beach strollers. Staff is friendly, quick to take orders, and willing to chat with patrons. Food is delicious with unique flavors. Pimento cheese grits, big shrimp basket, fun french toast.

Coconut Joe's is a family-friendly restaurant right on the beach. We have a wide range of entrees on our menu: burgers, seafood, Caribbean specialties, entree salads, wraps, and plenty of choices for the children. During the season, we have live music at our rooftop bar every night, and this is a fun place to be if there is a wait for your table. We offer call-ahead seating up to 45 minutes ahead of your anticipated arrival. During the cooler months, we offer a spectacular view, and a quieter environment to enjoy your meal.
