Lovely shady bar with seats right on the beach. Happy hour drinks are cheap if not strong. Basic menu of bar snacks was suitable for a light dinner. Fish tacos were tasty.

Stopped in after a day of snorkeling for a bite to eat and had a very good meal. My small pizza was tasty and my wife had a very going Caribbean lobster roll. Also looked like a good happy hour.

Probably the best happy hour we've been to so far on SJ, all drinks $3! Our waiter was friendly and helpful. Not the strongest drinks on the island, but nice place to kick back and relax!

This was our first stop after getting off the ferry. Happy hour 4-7. $3 drinks and the Painkillers are excellent! We really like Joe's much better then it's next door neighbor! Fish tacos are also excellent. The crab quesadilla you can skip. Friendly efficient staff.

Not a table to be had during happy hour so we walked a bit and then returned for an excellent specialty drink menu and light dinner. Lobster quesadillas and pico were delish as well as the Nachos and grilled chicken salad. Server was attentive and helpful in getting us some super cool shirts to bring home. Will def stop back...

Went here for lunch after spending a beautiful day at the many beaches on St. John. Sits right in town and literally right on the sand. A perfect place for a maragarita and a sandwich!!!

Joe's is a regulary (daily) stop. the 3-6 happy hour '$3 - call your own' happy hour can't be beat. Great pizza, great drink choices (Island Girl!!!) and Mahi Mahi bites are great. Staff is friendly and the view of the water after a day on the boat or beach is perfect.
