A colorful seafood restaurant for kids of all ages--especially the younger ones.. In Short Admittedly kitschy, unavoidably noisy, this Red Lobster for rug rats is like an oversized seaside shanty awash in oceanic memorabilia--fishing nets, souvenir trinkets, plastic flotsam and jetsam. Staffed with a lively crew of G-rated table-dancing servers, the family-friendly chain anchors its menu in all things crab: Crab balls, crab cakes, crab dip, crab gumbo. Finicky children opt for corndogs or hamburgers; shellfish-phobic adults dine on rib eye steak or mesquite-grilled chicken.
Great Place For Large Groups With Kids.
We go to to Joe's with a group of friends and hang out for hours. We love the fact that the kids can play on the playground while you sit outside and enjoy some cocktails and hush puppies. I've never noticed the speed of service because we go there to unwind not to eat and run. The service is always friendly though, and the kids love to dance with the servers. The food is pretty much what you'd expect from a large chain, not a lot of local flavors, but I'd say it's above average.
