I returned this summer and was floored at the progress Coconut Joe’s has made. This place was bumping with carribean style music from a live band and the staff couldn’t be happier serving landshark a and margaritas. There was quite a line but everyone was...More

Had dinner last night. The food was average and expensive. Carrots and potatoes with one piece of whitefish no toppings or sauce for $24. Burger was hard and served on a cheap bun from the grocery store. Only a couple options for beers and the...More

Coconut Joes has a fantastic location on the water. Nice patio but small. For some reason they were not allowing anyone to sit inside even though there was a line of people waiting around dinner time. The food was alright, but nothing special. Out of...More

I can't understand why more people don't know about this place. Our family returned here this past July and the food and service were just as good as remembered. They have fantastic food and great drink choices. Even had excellent options for my vegetarian daughter....More

I wouldn't go back here. It's a nice place but the food is just whatever. The service was also really slow as they seemed understaffed for Labour Day weekend. We had the two vegetarian tacos and they were just OK. The chips+guac were also just...More

This place was quite the surprise. I'm from the Caribbean so to see a Caribbean themed place in Tobermory was surprising in itself. We dined / lime there Friday Night 09/07/18. The music played had that island vibe mixed with the small town playlist. The...More

We were attracted by the waterfront view. Tables on patio only available, inside closed until colder weather. Beer was $9 for a 16 oz. Food was okay, some dishes not so good. Really liked the owner, full of conversation. The Jungle noodles were really just...More

When we first tried Coconut Joe's last year they served yummy drinks, but the staff were not at all friendly or personable and the service was extremely slow - we had to remind them that we had ordered drinks, and even after this it took...More
