Wife and I stopped in for lunch. Staff was great and our table was clean. We didn't wait very long for our food, which tasted great. We will be back.

Relaxed atmosphere, yet great attention on the part of the servers anticipating your every need. Even with a two and a half years old baby along, they knew how to keep control of everything and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the lump crabmeat sandwich.

The waitress here was very attentive. The food was all excellent. I love the ambiance with all the decorations on the walls. The price is a little steep but what seafood isn't!

Make sure you order a bucket with multiple seafood items. They serve the seafood, hot spicy and quick. Try the crabs they are to die for. I like the dungeon crabs. The corn on the cob in the bucket is hot and sweet. You get the sensation that you are on a cruise ship because of the balcony water view... More

The food was very good. My drink could have had more alcohol in it, but otherwise a delicious drink.

This Joe's location seats you fast and serves you even faster. They have bar seating, plenty of main lobby seating and outside bench seating with rooftop cover and a great view. The staff is knowledgeable of the menu items and the drinks. I would give 5 stars but I received an order that was a little cold. The place was... More

This was my first time ever eating at a Joe's Crab Shack. Our waitress, Kayla, was excellent. If I had any questions she answered them with smile. The food was wonderful, served hot and fresh. I also got to try the Patio Punch...delicious!!! I was full after I left from there. Will definitely go back again.
