We ate inside and... More

If you have time before a cruise, wheel into the Harbor Shops Shopping Center and have a tune up breakfast at Joe’s. This is just what you expect from a diner. You get half a Mustang on the wall, booths down the sides, pictures of The Beatles and old Coca Cola signs hanging on the wall. You get monster size... More

We eat breakfast at Joe's before every cruise we take, that sails from Ft. Lauderdale. The staff is very friendly and the service is very good. Food is delicious and served hot;your coffee cup never gets empty. Prices are very reasonable!

Fast service, decent price, good food. What more can you ask for? Always great to be able to eat outside after enduring a snowy winter.
