Worst attendant I have ever experienced. Left after waiting and rooming around for a while.'never thought I will be writing negative review for a restaurant.

My family loves to eat here! We have been coming here since my kids were small, and they still enjoy the food here. We try to come at least once a month. Can't go wrong with this place!

One of the best fish and chips I've ever had anywhere. The atmosphere was casual with beach and surf music and theme. One weird thing was no prices for their drinks on their menu. I think the soft drink ended up being $1.99. Probably would've ordered a beer if there was a price.

Been here a few times and haven't been disappointed yet. The restaurant is decorated in a Island theme. Keeps the conversation flowing and the atmosphere fun.

Had the three- piece fish and chips. They were battered perfectly, and needed very little tartar sauce, which was tasty! They also serve it with cocktail sauce. I ate the fish first, so barely touched the fries, which were average to good. Because they have an outdoor eating section as well, they use plastic ware, and wine is served in... More

Delicious BBQ chicken and tri-tip! This place never disappoints. Great menu items, fun atmosphere and friendly service. Coconut Joes is one of my family favorites!

Have been a patron for years and never get tired of Coconut Joe's - great tri-tip sandwiches and like the Hawaiian atmosphere.

Our fish tasted fresh, hot and delicious. The fries were dry & not cook all the way. I mentioned this to our order taker, she apologized and bought us fresh, hot and tasty French fries. Their tarter sauce is always delicious.
