Serving The Gulf Coast Since 1989!

Meet Josie Patti Merrit

Founder of Captain Joey Patti's Seafood Restaurant

Josie Patti Merritt started this restaurant with her brother Joey around 1989. One of two daughters born to Joe Patti, her sister Marie and brothers Frank and Gerard are all that remain of the original six children of Joe Patti.

She didn’t know much about the restaurant business but she loved to cook and wasn’t afraid of hard work. Through the years, she weathered through hurricanes, oil spills, and Joey’s eventual exit from the company. Her love of the customers and community is what kept her going through the rough times.

Frequently, she walked the aisles of the restaurant spending time at each table getting to personally know her customers. She was always a believer in giving more than she received. Most of the recipes that you find on the menu were handed down from her mom, Ana Patti, along with other close Patti family members.

Though she is no longer with us in body, she most certainly is in spirit. We are proud to carry on the same recipes that she spent so much of her life perfecting.

Come down and experience our founding mother's best recipes. Celebrating 32 years servicing the Gulf Coast.
