I wanted to start by saying thank you to every staff member my wife and I encountered last night for my 30th birthday. From beginning to end the experience was perfect. I also wanted to call out Marco for his amazing knowledge of the menu and every item on it. You really went above beyond and never hesitated to take the time to make that extra effort that set this aside from any other dinning experience we have ever experienced Thank you very much from my wife and myself. Joe Muer, you have made two customers for life.

–Josh Miller

Came to the bar for happy hour and had a couple appetizers and some drinks. Great prices and the food is delicious. But most notably I want to mention two things. The portion sizes are enormous! I couldn’t believe how much calamari we were served for the happy hour portion. There were two of us and we didn’t even finish it. The other notable thing to mention is the bartender Chris. He was top notch and made the evening very pleasurable.

—Rebecca M.

From start to finish, I was extremely pleased with my dinner at Joe Muer Seafood. When I pay more than average for my food, I have high expectations. This place fulfilled everyone of my expectations: good service, outstanding meals and sides, great wine list, and an excellent atmosphere, and music. I left there so full that my original plan of going out for a few more drinks was put aside.

—Pam W.
