This Joe's is like a true Crab Shack. The customer service is deplorable and the food is horrible. I am a prudent customer and would expect more for a food establishment who prides itself on garnering the wonder experience. Poor job Joe!

The food at Joe's is good and consistent. Both of the new buildings in Galveston seem very loud and cold! Even in the heat of Summer. Personally I preferred the funky, beachy look of the old buildings. The Seawall Joe's does have great outdoor dining.

Joe's is a local establishment that one would usually drive by. It has a varied menu. We tried the catfish and shrimp. They were delicious, freshly cooked and piping hot, too hot to eat right away. Being northerners we are not used to the popularity of the white bread included in meals in the South. We enjoyed our meal, it... More

Our food was hot, fresh, tasted good and came with excellent service! That's why we always stop here for lunch or dinner.

As always, we decided to have lunch at Joe's on our way home from Houston. It was well worth it! We enjoyed every bite and had enough left for a snack when we arrived home! We should've ordered chicken wings!

There are too many other good restaurants on Galveston Island that serve tastier food IMO. This place was crowded and noisy. The waitstaff was slow and the food was just average.

If your over 30 bring sound suppressing gear. The fish was OK, the atmosphere like McDonald's on a Saturday noon. Over hyped up, under trained staff are somewhat entertaining

I read the previous reviews and wanted to try this place. I love fried food and Chinese food. It was just Ok. I would eat here again if their prices were less than the other good places but they were not. My husband had the Chinese noodles. It was a ton of food and could feed a lot. It was... More

Do not let the size of the restaurant fool you because this place serves very good food, and some items on their menu even rival some of the more upscale restaurants in town. It not only tastes great but the price is right for the portions you get. They overstuff their plates and you will be more than satisfied. You... More
