Our friends and I had just spent a delightful day of light adventures celebrating one of our senior birthdays and not wanting to call an end to our celebration considered several upscale eateries settling on Joes. The reason, getting up to our elbows in crab...More

We had a group of 40 attend recently and although a lot of the food looked pretty good, I can only discuss mine. I got a sampler plate. The crispy calamari should be called burnt to a crisp calamari. The crab dip was disgusting. The...More

Went there tonight for my son's 12th birthday. It's been tradition to go to Joe's every year. We have never been to this one, we always go to the Westminster one and they always treat him so special on his day. From being a duck,...More

I agree with some of the most recent reviews. Is this place really still open? The draft beer menu for Colorado Springs was sad. Bud Light, Miller Lite, Blue Moon, Samuel Adams. This town is awash in craft beers but the shack did not get...More

While my family and I typically enjoy eating at Joe's, this place was a disappointment. We had reservations for 6 pm on Friday 04/06/18. Little did we know, reservations were NOT necessary as there were only 5-7 other tables with patrons throughout our entire dining...More

Went here after a day of shopping. We typically like Joe’s but our experience here was not good. It was pretty empty, only a few tables on a Monday night. It took almost 40 minutes to get our food. When it came, it was lukewarm....More

Pretty good. Crab was well cooked and service was good. A little pricey for what you get. The place was empty.
