                  Nobody does lobster tails like Joe Muer! It's become a birthday tradition for me. Service was outstanding - our waitress was absolutely terrific. Only complaint - A/C was a bit much; had to keep my covering on the whole time.

                  It's heard to pinpoint but I think Joe Muers has seen its best days. I go back to the original location. I ordered the stuffed flounder which was overcooked and the crabmeat stuffing was tasteless. On top of that the filet was exceedingly small. In years past it was the whole fish (minus the head and tail) cut in half with the crabmeat stuffed inside and the filet folded over. The fish was moist and delicious. The calamari appetizer was incredibly uninspiring. The mustard sauce accompanying the tempura asparagus was awful and overpowering. Too many of their fish offerings are doctored up with complicated additions. A great piece of fish should be able to sit alone on the plate with nice side dishes. I take my two daughters there each year for their birthdays and even they suggested that we go somewhere else next year.

                  My husband and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary on May 22, 2022. We requested a window seat and were accommodated. The view was breath taken. The staff was genuinely very friendly. Management visited our table several times with casual and friendly conversation to ensure we were satisfied. OMG! The food was to die for. My husband loved his New York Strip, and my Scottish Salmon melted in my mouth. Our crab balls were also delicious. The chef that day was the best,

                  The waiter was doing his best, but I got the feeling he was fairly new. When we got our appetizer there weren't any plates to put them on. And we did not want to use our bread plate. We had to ask for water refills, which in my opinion, should never be the case in a fine dining establishment. i ordered the 10 ounce lobster for $100. There was no plate given to put the lobster shell, which the lobster was laying on. It was our 35th wedding anniversary.

                  Dissatisfied, been there a few times. This trip was not good. Sat next to a family with Children throwing spoons and forks yelling the whole time. Our server was not good at all. Drinks took over 30 min to get. She told us many times not to get what we wanted, rang in the wrong food. Told me about a special and then they didn’t have the special at 5:30pm because the chef had not cut the fish yet?? Lastly I got the surf and turf food was great but they packaged my empty lobster tail shell with my mashed potatoes and steak. There was no lobster left yet the left overs smelled and tasted like the lobster which is not ideal. The server needs work and I have no issues with children going to nice restaurants but they should be sat in a quiet corner not in the middle of the room next to adults spending $700

                  The food was spectacular! Seafood is so hard to cook just right, and the appetizer and main dish were both done perfectly. I had grilled swordfish and it was one of the best seafood dishes I have ever had. I will definitely go back, and would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a great seafood meal!

                  Overrated. You do not get what you expect for the prices they charge. Food was mediocre. Service was good, but nothing special. We just returned from a cruise and the service on the ship was much better…as was the food. I had the perch. It was overcooked and dry. It tasted like it had been sitting under a warming lamp for an hour or more. I tasted all three soups, and they were ok…but I’ve had better - much better. My friend ordered a Delmonico steak, medium rare. It came to him well done. Not even pink in the middle. He had to send it back. We were a party of three. Two of us finished our entrees before our friend received his steak, cooked right this time. Will not be returning. There are other restaurants out there with much better food, at much better prices.

                  Best surf and turf I've had with a large portion that left us stuffed! Also ordered the swordfish which had a spicy flair to it and was delicious. We come here for special occasions and it has never failed to be a wonderful meal and wonderful evening with live piano and a beautiful view over the river.

                  Great food at atmosphere. Hard to hear conversation. And server wore a mask so we couldn’t hear anything she said.

                  Only reason service was not given a five star rating is for the following. I made a reservation, indicated the occasion to be my wife and I’s anniversary. Which is why we chose Joe Muer, due to its reputation. Our table only had one place setting on the table when we arrived. We didn’t receive a second set of utensils, a second napkin and second appetizer plate until we eventually asked as we grew tired of sharing utensils, napkin and such. For being a fine dining restaurant which high expectations for its guests are expected based on restaurant rules. One of the most basic and tradition processes of fine dining 101 was completely missed and fell woefully short of what should be expected at any restaurant, let alone Joe Muer Seafood.

                  First, we had a timing issue and we’re able to easily move our reservation time. The food/beverage offerings were varied. My husband’s seafood pasta was a little too spicy for him but my lobster roll and grandson’s salmon were excellent. Our server, Sandra, was very attentive and quite personable. Excellent employee.

                  Our server Shannon was exceptional. She made recommendations for wine & food. She checked back several times after we received our food & appetizers. The food was absolutely delicious. I would definitely come back for a special occasion. It was our grandsons bday & there was a candle & birthday wishes written in chocolate with his dessert.
