Opened recently at the site of the Castaway Restaurant, Whiskey Joe's has a beauty of a setting. A wide wrap-around patio provides some of the sweetest waterside dining around. Inside, with its peaked roof and rustic wood beams, seems reminiscent of a hunting or ski lodge, casual and inviting. The old Whiskey Joe's was out on Rocky Point and closed due to hurricane damage in that furious 2004 storm season. Whereas the Castaway was known as the seafood place where you took Mom for Mother's Day brunch, Whiskey Joe's was more about $5 beer pitchers. Both had gorgeous waterfront views, but Whiskey Joe's skewed younger, to college kids and young professionals out for a good time. The new Whiskey Joe's is splitting the difference, with food that is pleasant but unremarkable.
