very friendly staff...did not mind changing our tables for us when it got windy by the open windows and manager came out to explain they were out of gumbo after one of us ordered it. Food was overall good...be aware though the beers are HUGE!!!

As always the service and food was excellent. I love the fried shrimp and my wife enjoys the crab legs. Lucky fi For us both are available and both are excellent.

It was pretty good. Food tastes better than some other places for the same price however you didn't get much food. 2 crab legs aren't my idea of a 1/2lb. Left full and seafood taste was fulfilled so would recommend to others.

We visited Joe's while at Branson Landing shopping. I had joined their e-mail club and had a coupon for a free appetizer up to an $11 value. The service was good and we were seated with a view of the water. We were there on a weekday for lunch so not very busy.

The food was very good. We went on a Tuesday so there were a lot of specials so we tried different things. The punch special was pretty good. The popcorn shrimp was tasty. The fried pickles were good but same as everywhere else. The crab boils were good and had a lot of different vegetables in them.

We were a group of 7 people. When we walked in it was not very busy. We were seated after 10 minutes of waiting. Our waiter Shawn came by pretty quick to get our drink orders. After we got our drinks he took our dinner order. He put the order in on his tablet and told us that it was... More

We took several people to Joe's for dinner and almost all of us had problems with our food. One guest ordered a side of potatoes and there was literally two and a half tiny red potatoes on the plate. Another had one of the most expensive steam pots and she only had a couple of potatoes. I guess they were... More
