Fodor's Review

Named for a much-loved English Bay bartender and lifeguard from the city's early days (he arrived in Vancouver in 1885), this lively brasserie has a piano bar, bistro, oyster bar, and a delightful covered rooftop patio. The menu is wide ranging, but steaks, chops, and generous portions of fresh seafood are the main draw. Select some fresh oysters from the lengthy list, then try the wild salmon, the cioppino (a seafood stew), or the Seafood Tower on Ice—a lavish assortment that's meant to be shared. Locals and visitors alike recommend Joe's for the great food matched with excellent service.
