Happy Hour at Joe Fortes is offered every day of the week between 4-6pm. The Happy Hour menu is only served in the bar area of the restaurant. It gets pretty busy and they don’t take reservations for Happy Hour, so I would recommend getting to the restaurant right at 4:00pm. (I actually got there at 3:50pm and they seated me right away but wouldn’t take my order until right at 4:00pm.)
The Happy Hour menu prices are significantly cheaper than the regular prices. Everything that I had ordered was good, nothing blew my mind but I would definitely come back for Happy Hour! I think most of the prices and portion sizes were appropriate, and that being said, I would not pay full price for the Happy Hour items.
I think the best thing about Happy Hour are the Buck A Shuck Oysters (it’s not listed on the actual menu!) The next time I come, I want to try the Oysters Rockefeller and the Calamari.
