It's a very casual place with live music on weekends. Nice view of the harbor. Enough food was served to make my friend happy. Nice wait staff and plenty of seating so there was no wait time. Not super expensive.

I guess because of the location it just makes the food taste that much better. The service and the food here is awesome.

Joe's is a family friendly, affordable seafood restaurant with a fun atmosphere. While it is a seafood restaurant, they do have non seafood dishes which are also really good. And if you get a window seat you'll have a great view of the harbor & frequently the seals that call the harbor home.

Took my kiddos here last month for the first time. My son and I had the bacon wrapped shrimp that was delicious. Their seafood buckets are good bit pricey starting at $35.
