We had our rehearsal dinner at Whiskey Joe's on a Friday night outside on the beach area. I had a blast. We had the buffet and Sangria Bowl. Even though the night was a little chilly we had lots of bonfires set up to keep us warm. The cold did not stop me(the bride) from having a great time. There was a band playing live music so everyone was able to get up an dance. We had a few little ones running around and they had a great time as well. Our guest count was right around 40 but Whiskey Joe's could have accommodated many more.Sent on 11/09/2014
There were a ton of compliments on the food and the chef even added in a few surprises for us. I was really impressed with the food and how great it tasted. Service was fantastic. Staff was always on top of things. Mindy was great to work with and very upbeat. The reason I gave 3 out of 5 stars on responsiveness is because we had to call and email a few times before we could get some responses. I think there were some changes happening with some staff and it may have caused some confusion. That part was a little stressful but everything worked itself out and we were very pleased with the end result. We even had a few vegetarians in our party and everyone was very flexible making side dishes for them and the children. This venue was perfect for the groom and I-laid back, barefoot in the sand, good food, good music, good people.
