Obviously a chain resturant bringing a touch of seafood to the Texas Hill Country. Both food and service was more than adequate and satisfied our seafood urges. Crab cakes not in the "Baltimore" class, but still, very tasty. Our server, Chy, was spot on.

Long wait to be seated. Long wait to get served. Food was just so-so. The bar didn't offer some basic drinks and was overpriced. We won't return.

I was leery since the only time I visited a Joe's it wasn't any good. This place redeemed Joe's for me. Our waitress was awesome and so was the food. It was right next to our hotel so we could walk over.

Service was okay. Crab dip was very good. Fish and chips were good. Coconut shrimp was not good. It was overlooked and had a strange flavor. This used to be one of my favorite places, but it is too inconsistent for me now.
