Temporarily Closed. Welcome to Joey's Shrimp House! This tiny neighborhood spot on the cusp of Humboldt Park serves Caribbean-inspired seafood. Look for a menu of incredibly reasonable island fare, including an array of fried seafood available by the pound or half pound and served with a choice of house-made dipping sauces. Sides include hush puppies, sweet potato fries and Caribbean cole slaw. On weekends, the kitchen features daily specials that might include ceviches or regional specialties such as mofongo. The interior follows a fun, kitschy rustic island theme, incorporating colorful murals and salvaged ship parts; it was designed and built entirely by owner Jose "Joey" Gonzalez and the eatery's two chefs, Eddie De Jesus and Abiel Harrison.

Rated 3 out of 5 by I went here on a deal. I decided on this place because of the great reviews. To start off staff is pleasant and helpful. We ordered shrimp and chicken wings. Both of them were over cooked. Maybe they werw having an off night...The sauces they included were ok, but nothing special. I would not go to this restaurant again, or recommend this place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by First of all, I called the restaurant the night before to confirm that they still accepted the gift certificate. The upbeat greeting on the phone was impressionable. Upon arrival its in a hip part of Wicker Park, free parking, easily accessible. The welcome was just like the phone friendly and upbeat by the female that greeted us. WE LOVED the vibrant Caribbean music playing. The selection was plentiful. The food was FRESH & Delicious. We will definitely be back! May 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The shrimp jibarito is amazing, and all of the sauces were so good. Venue is small so don't go to dine in with a group but you can go with one or two friends and eat there or do take out-- very good food! May 11, 2014
