If you like good Seafood then Joe's Crab Shack is the place for you! You cannot go wrong with any of the Crab entrees! I shared one of the Crab buckets with my daughter because I knew I could not eat ALL THE FOOD A LONE!!! We shared the shrimp appetizer and she ordered a bisque soup and together we... More

The food here is great! I love the crawfish and shrimp. They have the option of making it spicy and it is amazing. I have no idea what the seasoning is but it just blows my mind! It is pretty expensive so I wouldn't recommend it if you're on a budget. This location is pretty dry so if you're looking... More

We love coming to Joe's, especially for the birthday's!! My 2 daughters and I celebrate together and this time, I was the one to get embarrassed....I had to run around the restaurant shaking a "rattle" and when I was told to stop I literally cried and said boo hoo I'm old! Oh yeah, all while wearing a "diaper"! Good times!... More

I ordered garlic crab with corn on the cob and potatoes. Very small slices of garlic covered the dish but the garlic flavor was missing. The food was good just taste different in California!

The manager denied that my crab smelled like ammonia and argued that the crab was good. I told him that I had eaten at this location several times and ordered the same dungeness crab steampot each time. My partner also confirmed that the crab smelled like ammonia. I have run restaurants as a general manager, work in the food industry,... More

It's a fun place, good food, but pay extra for hush puppies! A real fun party atmosphere, plenty of drinks, etc. Waiters dance in the isles at times...!

Several months ago we were here and everything was really good. This visit however was a complete reversal. There were six of us, five ordered drinks and they never came and time went by and we could see our drinks sitting on the bar for a good ten minutes, caught the waiters eye and pointed to our drinks , it...

My wife and I visited this restaurant for lunch on Thursday, March 3, 2016. We arrived at 12:15 pm, and the restaurant only had about 4 tables occupied. The menu was very expensive. Featured items were $25 - $30 each. My wife wanted grilled fish, but the only meal was $19. We settled on the lunch menu. She had a... More

The staff was excellent. WE ordered their lobster special which was delicious BUT I felt a little skimped on the size of the lobster. All and all was a nice dining experience.
