This being one of my favorite restaurants I enjoyed the food and the service I received. My waiter was very attentive, kept checking on me as I waited for my food. They were a bit slow but he made the wait pleasant.

This is by far my favorite Joe's Crab Shack. The best people work here. They are fun, outgoing, professional and very helpful. The food is equally great. Hot and delicious every time. I have never had a bad experience here, ever!

First and last time dining there. The food was poor quality and had no flavor. The dirty rice had too much sage in it, the steam boil had no seasoning on it. There is no salt, ketchup or pepper on the table. The service was...More
