First visit after passing it for years. I'm glad I made reservations because the parking lot was full. Once a valet spot open we got it but was late for the reservation. We still was sat for our table as others were turned away to visit the outdoor bar for dining. Very crowed and I was happy for the accommodation because I traveled over an hour.
Anyways our table was overlooking the ocean, service and food was excellent. Afterwards we went to the beach front area, unexpectedly paid $5 for entry but it was worth it. We found an open seat no shade but it was after 7p. The overall vibe was nice but No Music entertainment. So we left after an hour because it was stale.
I will return in hopes it will be entertainment.

I was in Tampa from out of town. It was recommended by someone who lives there. We were seated immediately, waitress was almost 10 mins coming. Appetizer of crab cake was barely warm on arrival. Margaritas mediocre at best. Entree was ok. We had to ask for dessert menu/offerings because the waitress brought the check without us requesting it. No I probably won’t recommend Whiskey Joe’s but will recommend Armature Works!

Good food and service from the server, kitchen was slow on a relatively not so busy night. The views tend to let you forget you’ve been there a while.

We LOVE the location and the water views; the food is delicious with a variety of choices; the decor gives a relaxed, "beach" atmosphere with really cute items available to purchase in the little gift shop area. Wait time was perfect and the staff courteous and prompt. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a casual lunch or night out!

Invited 6 coworkers to lunch. When making reservations in advance, called twice to request an outdoor table. They could not accommodate. Our party was seated indoors. Ordered several appetizers for the table and the waiter said there were no appetizer plates left. He would check outside to see if they had plates. Never brought plates, very disappointing.

Placed a reservation with open table since this location is popular to locals and tourist. Husband and I was able to be seated immediately and the server was amazing. I would recommend reserving your table especially on the weekend.

I love the location of this place. Has a really good view of the Bay and you can also catch sunset from here.
Food and drinks are very average here.
The tiki bar is the best part of the whole place.

Worst experience in years. $6 or more to park, if you get a spot. Price of food was more than double what it was worth. Dishes were not displayed well and food combinations mostly carbs. Sticky bench or wooden tables. Service couldn’t have been worse. No napkins, no flatware, no condiments, no water fill, no checkup after food came out. Food took over an hour to be served. Took another half hour for bill to come. This place went way down hill in the last few years. I was completely embarrassed because of the first time visitors I brought who just moved down to Fla. I’m certain they will never go back to this restaurant.

Our server was not very attentive. On three occasions we had to request cutlery, water napkins etc... Although the muscles & oyster appetizers were good, the main course (Shrimp & Grouper) were both dry and bland. Not impressed.

Good experience, it's been a few years since I was there but was a frequent diner several years ago. Service was very good, starting from free valet to check in to dining. Food is good, not outstanding but it's a beach side bar with great waterfront ambiance.

We specifically asked for outdoor seating because of Covid19 precautions. When we arrived, they only offered us a table inside, with a lot of people around. We had to decline, ordered takeout food and went on the beach nearby.
Food was very salty, and overall expensive for the quality.

Portions small...prices high. Chicken overdone...when mentioned to our server she stated she knew we were going to say something but they told her to bring it out anyway. Gator bites were tasty but small portion for the price. Island gumbo was delicious. Nice location on the water.

We made a reservation because we had showed up earlier in the day. Around 2:40 and there was a long wait. No big deal. We left. Made a reservation and then walked to enjoy the weather. Still a long line when we got there. We were acknowledged quickly. Gave our name and time for our reservation and we were ushered quickly to a table that was not yet clean and although wiped down in front of us (during a pandemic)a “ wipe down” was not enough. And as quickly as we were sat the hostess was gone. Given an option of where to sit would have been nice. A clean table that you are brought to would have been nice. An $8 drink in a shot glass unacceptable. Come to Maine. We give you what you pay for. Our waitress was sweet and friendly and made the experience worth the $88 tab. The dolphins swimming by was a treat. The overall atmosphere is clearly a tourist attraction and that is it. We walked down to the beach after. What a mess. To bad because it is prime real estate if it was run that way.
