Restaurant Impossible - Joe Willy's Seafood House - OPEN

Joe Willy's Seafood House Restaurant Impossible

In this Restaurant Impossible episode, Chef Robert Irvine visits Joe Willy's Seafood House in Fishkill, New York, owned husband and wife Joe and Deana White.

The main problem of the restaurant is the food cooked by Joe, the food isn't bad and Joe is skilled in the kitchen but smothering seafood and fish in cheese is unforgivable.

Joe struggles to see the problems in the restaurant due to his stubbornness and is reluctant to change.

The stress of running the restaurant has also effected the relationships and due to the pressure things are at boiling point in the family.

Robert simplified the menu and gave the dining room a makeover, adding a new bar.


What Happened Next at Joe Willy's Seafood House?

After filming there has been a significant increase in business, sales had tripled from before the show and are making a profit, allowing them to pay vendors, staff and tackle debt.

Their relationship had also improved as the stresses were lessened and Deana was spending less time at her job and more time at the restaurant.

They moved the restaurant to a larger location and decided to close for lunch on two days to be able to spend more time together.

Yelp Reviews are mixed, with compliments to service but some complaints on some menu items being overcooked.

Robert returned to the restaurant in 2016 and they reported that business has doubled and remained steady since the show.

Joe Willy's Seafood House was Restaurant Impossible season 6 episode 1 and aired on April 14 2013.
