Pretty organized no rude people when being seated at our table
Complained about us even though the hostess seated us.
That should not happen especially in the day as a pandemic what are you all had their masks off and were yelling

The kitchen was backed up. It wasn’t even that crowded when we were there. We went for the view. The new waiter was nice and trying his best, but this place is mismanaged and just a mess. Not a good experience..My family was not happy at all.

I have been several times but only outside at the beach bar. I have ordered nacho's every time because they are a good value and easy to share. On this day when I ate inside with my parents (for their anniversary) we ordered the nacho's as an appetizer. They were embarrassingly unacceptable. There were no more than 15 nacho chips on a long platter hardly any extras. The dish was not at all like we have had before outside. A large plate filled with cheese, beans and meat. Our experience was not off to a good start for as much as we bragged about the food. My husband ordered a burger, which was good. I ordered the swashbuckler platter. It was o.k. EVERYTHING was fried, which I was not expecting. I will say fried scallops....not a good idea. My parents enjoyed their meals. The staff was pretty good and friendly.

The hostess worked with us so we could sit outside away from other customers. We had 2 tables of 4. My son and family had just flown in. The hostess worked with us on their unknown arrial time. We had a great lunch and worked around the boy's allergies. A perfect lunch with family.

Overall the food was great! The charbroiled oysters were a little slimy compared to what I’ve had before, so they could have been cooked a little longer in my opinion. But they were still delicious.

The restaurant requires you to valet park which made no sense during a pandemic. Wear masks, social
Distance but we’re going to put a stranger in your car?? The tables and chairs were dirty on the outside deck. The food was just ok.

Valet parking is so unnecessary. The service was excellent. Sat on the deck but they have not kept up with the fishing wire to keep the birds off the tables. They were everywhere. Food was good but you pay up for the view. Don't waste money on the Oreo Peanut butter pie, but the brownie skillet is good.

After dropping over $60.00 for food and drinks for me and my wife we were very disappointed. We both had margarita's and they both tasted different mine tasted like coconut's had it remade still tasted bad. The food was bland and cheep grade fries were oily the fish had no flavor . It was like going to long John Silvers . The place has a great look I think its set up for just party people who just want a place to hang out and boat to .

Our first visit to Whiskey Joe’s.
We went primarily for the Coconut Mahi Nuggets and the ability to sit outside for our Full Moon Dinner date. We also tried the Blackened Mahi Tacos.
We set our reservation on Open Table, and had only a short wait for our table. The restaurant enforced masks & social distancing inside the restaurant, but not so much outside on the deck.
Our server was Alvin and he was great. Will ask for him next tile we eat here. There are a couple of other menu items that I’d like to try for lunch, especially the Key Lime Pie.
The Coconut Nuggets were very good. A shareable plate for at least four people. The rum coconut pineapple dipping sauce was very good.

We enjoyed our experience eating on the beach, we had a wonderful server but the beach menu was limited compared to the inside menu. They were recovering from a tropical storm so that had an impact on the beach seating and the overall experience.

We asked to sit outside since it was almost sunset and a gorgeous evening. We were given a table right by the water. Hamburgers (Black and Blue) were great and the carnitas was even better. Service was top notch, dinner for 4 under $100. Hard to beat that!

While we first pick indoors to sit, we felt that we were wayyyy to close to other diners and decided to sit outdoors. When we were switched we waited about 20 mins before I finally asked someone for service. The server I asked said he will find someone and 5 mins later returned saying he would serve us. I think that may have been the most annoying part overall, other than that the server was attentive. I just didnt like how now one person gave us attention while we waited for service

Recommended by a colleague that knew I was visiting Tampa. We came straight from the airport and were delighted with the view, menu and service. The skinny margherita was the best ever tasted. Great spices on the shrimp cocktail and grouper.
Will be back.

Our lunch was at 1:00 p.m. so it was quite empty on a Tuesday afternoon. Hence, the noise was at a minimum. The prices were a little high, but we were in Hillsborough county instead of Citrus. Waitress was great.
