A bigger Joe’s Rum Hut

If you’re going to close down for renovations, September is the time to do it.

Joe’s Rum Hut is wrapping up an expansion that’s going to give Mike Garbo more room for his well-fed customers.

“There’s a new deck built out on the beach side that will give us room for eight or ten more tables. We’ve got a new sound system and a new bamboo ceiling that covers up all the wiring,” says Mike.

Joe’s will be re-open for business any day now.

    Glad to hear they are about ready to re-open. Will be down there in 18 days and cannot wait to try their grilled cheese advertised a few postings ago.

    You say Hum Hut, I say Rum Hut…. :o))) Is Joe going for a secretive-speakeasy-vibe with the name change??? :o) Really like the bamboo ceiling and I bet the beach deck will be awesome…can we get a tour when they reopen?

    I love Joe’s Rum Hut, great food, people and don’t forget the drinks. And I’m really missing the spice cam. Between this blog and the spice cam, I always start my day or night with a smile.

    Ruth, good luck getting back up and running as soon as possible. Can’t tell you how much we have missed our daily fix and checking out that spectacular view.

    Ruth, also please tell Faith that my wife June says hey. Every time we are there June bugs her about you not carrying anymore the little cloth pouches that she bought for all her friends to carry glasses, valuables, etc. We always enjoy visiting your store.
