The food was great, except for the dessert we didn't get. Our waitress, Sarah, didn't want to check on us for some reason. My husband got a salad but nothing to eat it with. We had to ask for them & another cracker (which we never got). We got our food then she ask if we want butter for dipping,... More

Everyone in our party loved it! We had a 40 minute wait on a Saturday at 5 pm for a party of 4. I suggest going 30 minutes prior to when you want to be seated and put your name in and then go shopping for a few minutes. Service was good and food was excellent!! Great for all ages

We celebrated our anniversary with Stevie Nicks in concert in Bossier and sought out our favorite place to eat! Joe's! We get our dungeness crabs fix whenever we can find a location. Cajun for me and garlic for my hubby!

The evening was just eight, sat outside enjoying a cocktail watching the river and the skyline. At the Boardwalk, you can walk or shop and walk. Just in case you are looking for exotic shopping, The... More

We popped in for lunch on a Sunday. There was a wait to be seated, so we opted to dine at the bar. Our order was taken quickly, and our drinks arrived in a timely fashion. Our food, however, took a long time to appear. It was almost 50 minutes from the time we ordered. My wife just ordered a... More

We had been on the road, heading home from the south, and had a taste for seafood. Service was pretty good, and we opted for the basic steamer: mussels, clams and shrimp. When it arrived it was obvious that there wasn't any shrimp in it. The staff rectified the situation quickly, and the meal was very good, but kind of... More

Great food at Jordan tonight. But service was a little slow, had to stop the manager to get season since they forgot to bring it with the food

I love this place despite its prices. I have had the paella with the gigantic spoon that makes you feel extremly cared for and loved. The only thing I would change are the prices or run more promotions. Allowing people to visit more often including myself.

We ate at Joe's on January 24, 2017. Enjoyed a great appetizer in celebration of my husband's birthday. Service was great and the seafood was fresh and tasty.
