Joe's Riverside Grille
Pompano Beach, FL 33062
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Joe's has the feel of a family operation - from a menu filled with chef Joe's personalized touches (wine pairing recommendations, "Mom's key lime pie") to the cheerful, attentive service in the front of the house. The mom-and-pop atmosphere is considerably offset by the chic beauty of the space: an indoor room gleaming with polished wood and ruby downlighting that overlooks the Sands Harbor Resort. All the fish served at Joe's is "eco-friendly"; that means your swordfish is local and line-caught. Steaks, like New York strip and center-cut sirloin, are prime, aged beef. The chicken is Belle & Evans "all natural." What that adds up to is one of the last few decent waterfront restaurants in South Florida serving lovingly prepared, simple, fresh food at fair prices.
