Went as part of a large group. Food pre-ordered. Shrimp skewers was cold, tough and flavorless. Broccoli was cold and way undercooked (and I do like it bright green), rice was cold. Chicken was cold and tough. Fish and chips was okay but mostly batter....More

Couldn't wait to get to our crabby place. We live in EPTX and don't have a Joe's. The steam pots and crabpots are highly recommended especially if you like crab and shellfish. We enjoyed that this literally is on the bay. Nice! The only negative...More

You are waited on smartly and given a good run down of what is offered. The staff are very friendly and take care of your needs. The food is great and temperature is just right. You do get enough food to go with the cost....More

We were here on a Monday night which wasn't busy and sat outside which was quite pleasant. We had the crab appetizer dip which was very good, shrimp jumbo ok but not memorable and the southern shrimp wrapped in bacon stuffed with some rice which...More

The "T" head Joe's has a nice view and fairly good service, but there are much better sea food places in Corpus. Several of Joe's are going under (closing) around the country -- they are in "big" financial trouble. No wonder since the quality and...More

I do not know. I'm not a smoker so I didn't look for or pay attention to such an area.

All establishments are now smoke-free. There was a patio area, maybe they allow smoking out there? Not sure. Contact the restaurant to make sure if smoking areas are available.
