Vancouver Dining: Joe Fortes Celebrates 35 years! #onRobson

Old-school charm, paired with fresh flavors of the West Coast, Joe Fortes Seafood and Chop House has been a go-to for many locals and tourists for the past 35 years. Inspired by San Francisco’s seafood grills and a legendary soul, Joe Fortes –  a bartender to the city’s first official lifeguard, the restaurant is celebrating it’s 35th anniversary with a launch of a new happy hour menu!

On Monday (March 2), Joe Fortes is launching a new Happy Hour menu, featuring fan favourites such as mini shrimp and lobster rolls and freshly shucked oysters. Then there’s the Happy Hour version of the iconic Joe’s Seafood Tower on Ice. Priced at $36.95 per tier, it includes Ocean Wise seafood like local oysters, marinated mussels and clams, prawns, albacore tuna crudo, scallop ceviche, and ahi tuna poke.

The Joe Fortes Happy Hour menu will be available in the bar/lounge from 3 to 6 p.m. weekdays and from 4 to 6 p.m. on weekends, as well as nightly from 9 p.m. onward.

And of course, cocktails are another must to celebrate the anniversary. Try the new Sticks and Stones, created by Mark “Elvis” Paulhus and Gord Bury.

Happy birthday, Joe Fortes!
