Fodor's Review

West of the nation's tiniest post office by a quarter mile or so, you'll find this red barn of a place dishing out catfish, frogs' legs, gator, grouper, burgers, salads, and (no surprise here) an abundance of soft-shell crabs, crab cakes, and she-crab soup. Entrées run from around $15 and up, and peanut butter pie makes for a solid finish. Grab an icy beer from the cooler or order wine by the glass and eat out front or on the back patio—keep an eye out for Gertrude, a neighborhood gator on the loose. Joanie's doors are open from 11 am to 5 pm, so don't be late for supper, and don't be surprised if there's some live entertainment.
