We have always loved Joe’s. Last night we got a steam pot and plank salmon. My salmon was great but the rice and French fries were cold. My husband was not convinced that there was 2 1/2 pounds of seafood in his steam pot since...More

Joe's is predictable. You'll always get decent seafood at a decent price. What sets this Joe's apart is its setting. At the far end of the Marina, you have spectacular views of the boats, the city skyline, or the water.

Went as part of a large group. Food pre-ordered. Shrimp skewers was cold, tough and flavorless. Broccoli was cold and way undercooked (and I do like it bright green), rice was cold. Chicken was cold and tough. Fish and chips was okay but mostly batter....More

Nice place to sit outside and enjoy the views, staff was friendly and attentive. Had the peel & eat shrimp on the second visit, they were very good and fresh.

This location is really convenient if you're staying on Shoreline. Yes, it's a chain, but it's on the water, which is great and the casual atmosphere is fun. The service has been very good everytime we've been. The appetizers are really good! I loved their...More

I noticed some complained about the fact that Corpus has better seafood restaurants. While this is true respecting local catches, I cannot think of one that serves King Crab buckets...can you? This is, after all, a Crab Shack chain, right? You can eat flounder and...More

Good indoor eating place on the CC Bay. If the weather is bad and you want to get out on the bay water as far out as you can, then this is a good place to eat. Same menu as all other locations, nothing new...More

I do not know. I'm not a smoker so I didn't look for or pay attention to such an area.

All establishments are now smoke-free. There was a patio area, maybe they allow smoking out there? Not sure. Contact the restaurant to make sure if smoking areas are available.
