There must have been something wrong in the kitchen. It took about 2 hours to get our food.

Using Open Table first time worked great. We were seated in less than 60 seconds at table we requested. Our server Rachel was attentive and not pushy and didn’t rush us. We were catching up with friends and enjoyed our uninterrupted visit. The guys ordered the jambalaya and us girls had the grouper. No complaints from anyone -food was good and plentiful. Will definitely visit Whiskey Joe’s again and use Open Table for reservations! Sharon Y. Weeki Wachee FL

Typically things go well here but despite this reservation we waited 30 mins for our table. All the food did not come out at same time. Waitress forgot to come back for our drink order. They were very apologetic and comped us some appetizers for the inconvenience. First bad experience out of 10x. I’d go back again

We arrived before our reservation time. Due to LACK of parking we had to find parking. Still got inside a tad bit before 1 pm. We were seated right away. Had to wait over 10 minutes for our waitress to come to us. Turns out one of the bartenders noticed we had been sitting there waiting. Came over took out drink and app order and even our food order. About 5 more minutes later she found the waitress who was to be on our table. Told her that she took our orders and such. The waitress looked over at us and still took another 5 minutes. Sad. Was it lunch time yes. A little busy. Not crazy busy. Our appetizer arrived and it was great. The food was fantastic. We saw “our” waitress 3 more times! And the 3 rd time was to get our check. I really wished I had cash on me bc the bartender deserved a tip. But I did not have cash.

Loud loud , greasy diner food! Hate to think how much fry o later foods are served. Kind of a tiki bar feel, but not super clean. Drinks spilling over in plastic cups
A teenagers heaven I suspect

Our meals were just ok, and pricey. The little coleslaw cups one everyone's plate were only half full, one order was fettuccine alfredo with jumbo shrimp, which was small salad shrimp. I'm not sure we would ever eat there again. Nice view though.

Food was average or below. Oysters small, no grilled or blackened seafood options, food was barely warm, waffles soaked in syrup nearly inedible.

Food and drinks great however told by server afraid myself and partner may skip out on Bill because it happens a lot so our bill was given to us to pay, asked for a manager and waitress said she didn’t want us to yell or be upset with the manager because it was another associate who told her to do so.

My wife and I went to Whiskey Joe’s for lunch on a friend’s recommendation. The location and water view was terrific. Food and drinks were very good and reasonably priced. Our server Ryan was very attentive. Small parking lot to accommodate the many patrons. Will definitely return on warmer days to enjoy the outside deck and water views.

We had the best time and the service was top-notch. Lainey took THE BEST care of our party of 10, 4 of which were small children. She was always going above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of for us. The food was outstanding and the vibe of the restaurant is always so much fun.

I was visiting from Chicago and wanted a beautiful, fun atmosphere which is what I found. The open air concept on the water with large deck, tiki huts and fire pits were all great. The service was terrific and cocktails where outstanding! I felt that the food was just adequate. We were very disappointed. Each of the dishes we ordered were quite bland and nothing great. We had the jambalaya, and the swashbucklers basket and expected more flavor. Afterwards I looked at the reviews and it seems as if the majority of the patrons felt the same way. Really wish they would revamp the menu and add some high quality flavorful dishes. All in all it was a great atmosphere and a fun time but lacking in flavor.

We love the waitress we have had her two years’ in a row! She rocks! It was very loud because of a huge party. A few minor mistakes from kitchen. We will be back it’s always a fun time!

I’ve been there many times and sorry to say that the sweet potato fries were a lot of crumbs at the bottom and the calamari was the same! I didn’t feel I got my moneys worth out of the Calamari there wasn’t that many good pieces in there, because we brought company with us I did not mention it to the waiter

If it wasn't for the great service we received from our waiter, the place would have received a 2 star review. Food was overpriced and the quality was not there. The indoor dining space was way too noisy. Outdoor tiki is nice, but the live band played really far away from the bar. Just a weird set up.

Much better than I thought it was going to be! All of the food was great! We had a table of 15 and everyone was satisfied! We should have had more than one waiter though for our table. That was the only downfall.

I would definitely recommend it. I wish there was more Seafood on the actual meal part I'm not just on the appetizers. I was looking for some different types of shrimp but really the only thing they had was on the appetizers. Still the food was very good the drinks were really really good and the atmosphere was great. A bit pricey but had a great time.
