Amy and I thought we would take a little journey this past Saturday. We loaded up the kayaks and headed East to St. Joe Bay. We spent several hours paddling around and also did a little fishing. For those interested in the fishing, the flats are not quite there yet. Maybe another couple of weeks of warm weather and the trout and redfish will be back in business. As we drove back to Panama City, we thought we would stroll through downtown St. Joe to see if any local restaurant would interest us. As we drove down the downtown area, Amy saw this little pizza place called, Joe Mama's. So we stopped. I have to say, I wasn't expecting the great pizza and the great beer selection from this little shop in St. Joe. At first glance, I saw six beer taps. So, I checked the menu and there was only one macro on tap and it was Bud Light. The other five were Craft Beers.
Their selection had a couple of local breweries like Lazy Magnolia and SweetWater, but they also carried Starr Hill and Gordon Biersch as well. And not to mention Shiner Bock in the bottle. The beer selection wasn't the only good thing on the menu. They make great pizza as well. They have several specialty pizzas on the menu. They cook their pizzas in a real wood fired oven that creates a nice crispy crust. It is a must try. Talking a little with Tori,
the owner, she says that she moved here with her husband from South Florida and they opened the restaurant. After asking her where they got the name, she said that her husband just came up with it. I think it is a perfect name and a perfect place.
Anytime you are in St. Joe, either passing through or staying for vacation, I totally suggest you stop. Order a brew and a pizza, you won't be disappointed.
