The Staff is welcoming but the atmosphere is not as much as we have experienced at other locations. Prices are higher than other locations and portios are smaller. A good place to go on date night but other locations preferred for the JOE'S Experience ;)

The food and service is awful at this location. Worst seafood I have ever put in my mouth. Slow service as well. I won't be back.

John had never been to Joe's, so we just had to go!! Zach was our server, he started out a little quiet, but when you meet John and fist bump him, that's it, so Zach opened up. It's difficult to mess up crab legs, so...More

Having never eaten at this chain, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised. Manager honored our request to turn off the speaker that was blasting over our table and move us from facing the kitchen.
