whiskey joes has good food, we requested a table inside because it was a warm evening. They sat us in a booth as we requested but then we realized it was very warm inside. requested to be sat outside , was told we had people ahead of us i stated i had a reservation for 8pm it was 7:58 and they failed to tell us that the A/C was broken. very busy outside waitress did her best. music too loud outside.

Party of 4 Had a reservation for 6:45. We were seated promptly then waited 25 minutes before one of us got up in search of a waiter or waitress. One then showed up and took our orders. After another 35 minutes our food finally arrived.

The day we were there the air conditioning wasn't working. The wait staff had been working in sweat shop conditions so they weren't on their A game. It would have been helpeful if we had been advised of the air conditioning issue. NOT AGAIN!

Great view, food, and service.

The only negative is the lack of parking. With very little parking available, they should have valet.

Great waterside location in New Port Richey. Food portions are generous! Variety & quality of menu items...Excellent! Service was attentive yet not intrusive. We were a party of 12 (6 kids & 6 adults). The only thing that would have improved our experience would be a table setup for large parties that facilitated conversation among all parties. However I struggle with that in most restaurants. Overall Whiskey Joe’s is great food & portions at a fair price. In a nice setting.

Food was great. The view was great. Service was awesome. Laynie was our server and couldn’t have been more hospitable. We will definitely be going back.

Our table was in a little nook near the bar which was really nice, except we could not see much of the action around us or outside. They ran out of Landshark from the get go, so I had to order Blue Moon, which is a fav too. Our waiter (Peter) was very nice, did not rush us, and recommended food without being pushy. We ordered the crab cake appetizer that was delicious. We should have shared an entree instead of getting two, as it was a lot of food, and a bit expensive doing it that way. My grilled grouper was good, but I would have preferred a little more fish and a little less sweet potato waffle fries and broccoli cheese. My husband’s blackened grouper sandwich was good as well, although the bread was a little heavy on it. We had a good time, and can’t wait to sit outside at the big tiki bar once it gets cooler!

Great place for good food and hanging out on the sand listening to music. Just need new Adirondack chairs around the fire pits, the red ones are too low and sink in the sand. But still a great place!

I researched Whiskey Joe's before our vacation and was pleasantly surprised that it was exactly as described. The atmosphere was fun, service was super and the sunset was amazing! Our food, a mix of ribs, fish and chicken dishes, was great; no one was disappointed. Love the sandy beach with fire pits even with the heat of July 4th! Highly recommended by our family!

The speaker system was very loud and sounded distorted. The food was just so so, drinks and prices were expensive. Waitress was nice, but it took forever to get drinks or refills. Not a great experience. Nice view though.

We ate indoors, a little hot but it’s Florida right. Delicious food, drinks and atmosphere. Followed up dinner with music and drinks by the water listening to the band during sunset.

THIS IS THE SECOND TIME WE HAVE BEEN HERE AND EVERYONE HAS BEEN ACCOMMODATING. THE FIRST EXPERIENCE WE HAD IS WHAT MADE US WANT TO COME BACK . OUR WAITER WAS PHENOMENAL AND WE CANT WAIT FOR HIM TO COME BACK AFTER LOBSTER SEASON. THE SECOND TIME WAS A SPECIAL OCCASION AND THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL. WE WILL BE COMING BACK FOR DINNER ANOTHER TIME! FOOD WAS DELICIOUS BY THE WAY!

Whiskey Joe's has a great location, if that's what you want. If you want good service, good, and drinks, go somewhere else. Service is inconsistent, sometimes very good, sometimes pretty weak. Bartenders are also inconsistent. Drinks tend to be kind of watered down, depending on how busy they are, so to play it safe, it's best to get beer or wine. Whiskey Joe's has more than more location, so it's a little surprising that they don't have more established restaurant people managing their restaurants. I think that's why you can sometimes go at dinner time, and no one is there.

food was quick to come out all correct without any problems. my margarita was not as strong as it normally has been in the past and we had to ask for silverware, but other than that it was good. we were quick to leave as we parked in the parking lot across the street and were worried we would get towed bc the gentleman who owns the lot was not there to collect payment. (staff couldnt offer any suggestions) Trailer parking on your lot would be a great idea! The last 3 times we have been we have had to park in that lot due to either having a trailer or your lot being completely full. A bummer when you pay over 100-200 dollars for a meal for you and family.

The food was simply bad. Soft tacos were cold - straight from the fridge, shrimp no taste, green beans so over cooked that they fell apart, steak more fat than meat. Been here twice and both times really bad. Will never return

Whiskey Joe’s has incredible atmosphere and this location is right on the water. An issue that has surfaced is parking - limited parking on the site if the facility is busy. At issue is the field across the street which is not operated as a paid lot most of the year.

The restaurants’ hummus (on the appetizer list) is excellent. The fresh oysters on the shell were very good. We did have problems with the entree - 2 different fish dishes - each had cold vegetables, cold meat and yellow rice that was also cold. The restaurants management stepped in and resolved the problem - very professionally and fairly - hats off to the manager this night she was professional, polite and fair.

While our entrees were an issue - the appetizers were really good. The managers actions will ensure that we will be back to try the menu again.

We sat inside near the bar area. There were thousands of flies flying around us. Our waiter was also the bartender. And our table wasn't his only one. So things got backed up. The food came out cold and no one checked on us while we were eating. My son wanted another beer and we needed more napkins. After sitting there for 15 minutes I went looking for bartender so we could pay and leave. I'm want to stay positive and hope their ironing out the wrinkles.. I might check it out again.

Brought a couple of friends with us and sat on deck. The view was great and the breeze was cooling. The waitress had a friendly personality while being very helpful. All our food selections were delicious. Our friends thanked us for our choice of restaurants. We really enjoyed our evening. Music was just a little too loud for conversation.

We sat inside to keep cool on Mother’s Day and it was still so hot inside the restaurant. Our waitress, Lanie, was so sweet.
I appreciate the gluten-free options, since I can’t eat gluten.
