REVIEW: Jubilee Joe's "Authentic Cajun Seafood that's Seaux Good!"

If you like seafood like I do, then you will definitely like the menu at Jubilee Joe's!! Although they are known for being one of the best places to get crawfish and their award winning gumbo, they have a wide variety of just about everything Cajun; crab, Po' boy's,  crawfish, shrimp, grouper and much, much more!

Jubilee Joe's has often been personally recommended by several people. Since I couldn't get full by staring at the menu, I recently took the time out to stop in for a meal. (Also note that they are also a winner of the 2015 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.)

Atmosphere: Jubilee Joe's has a very pleasant atmosphere. I'd have to say that it definitely has a Louisiana feel to it. They have a bar that is stocked with lots of your favorite brews, ample seating and televisions for your viewing pleasure. My seat was facing the kitchen. I had the torturous experience of watching all of the other meals come out before mine making me hungrier by the minute. They also have outdoor seating to enjoy a meal on a day with great weather.

The Meal: I had the Wild Shrimp Platter. This platter comes with 2 side dishes; a Bayou Side and an On Deck side. I decided to have the shrimp grilled instead of fried with a side of homemade coleslaw from the On Deck side dish menu  and a side of steamed California veggies from the Bayou side dish menu. I was very pleased with the dish overall. The shrimp was grilled & seasoned just right and the coleslaw had amazing flavor. I was thoroughly pleased.

The Prices: The value / quantity seemed to be fair in this case. Seafood can sometimes have a
"market price". However, most of the menu items at Jubilee Joe's have set prices.
They also have a reasonably priced kids menu as well as a  great looking dessert menu as well. 

The Staff: The server that I had was pretty friendly. This  visit occurred after the mid-day lunch peak time. The restaurant only had about 3 tables seated, so there wasn't much noise or or any major concerns with service. There was only one small issue that I saw that could be corrected. A message was sent to their staff.

Overall experience: I enjoyed the experience! The food alone is enough for me to want to return. I am a seafood fanatic and a recent fan of crawfish so this will definitely not be my last visit.
