Island Joe's Kentena is owned by Kenny and Tena Smith ("ken" and "tena"....Kentena, get it?). Lakeside dining and drinking is a lot more fun since this dedicated Grand Lake couple took over the most popular accessible-by-water restaurant/bar on Grand Lake. Island Joe's is family friendly during daytime and early evening hours, with a targeted kids menu including favorites like grilled cheese and peanut butter & jelly.
For the big kids, there's a full service bar and a menu of mouth-watering favorites. A wide array of appetizers includes everything from shrimp cocktail to nachos, fried dill pickles to popular jalapeno onion stix.
Famous on the lake for their outstanding burgers, Island Joe's offers a great variety of other sandwiches including everything from pulled pork to their awesome chicken fried steak sandwich. Seafood lovers rave about the talapia sandwich and seafood sliders, too – as well as Chef Tom's "specials" and his popular fried shrimp basket.
