Service was a 4. For the price paid the food was 1.5 at best. My corn on the cob looked like it had been miniaturized, the crab was way over cooked, the least costly item in the meal the 3 slices of potato was very good although not satisfying i'm sure that a few slices of potato would not bankrupt...

It was my second visit to this Joe's Crab Shack. The first one was long ago and left a good impression. Not this time, unfortunately. First of all, get ready to use your hands, not fork and knife, and dress accordingly - it is a messy place overall and your table will get messy very soon too. But this is... More

Joe's Crab Shack is a fun place to visit, but the seafood is just average. You'd think a seafood place would do better! But I guess Denver is a long way from the sea. Waitress was fun and helpful, but we won't go back.

Asked if I ordered a dozen oysters, If I could get 6 one way and 6 another way, answer yes .Ordering by the dozen was cheaper.. Got charged as if I ordered by the half dozen. Was told next time I would know how to order.

I ordered the 'queen crab' steamed, with corn and potatoes. Definitely good. The wait staff is adequate and the prices are high, but this is Denver, not the coast.

We are from a very landlocked NM with no really good seafood. Saw Joes from the freeway and decided to give it a try. One of the coldest nights in Colorado but inside Joe's it was toasty warm. The waiter suggested getting the Big Daddy feast with king, queen and snow crab with Old bay seasoning. Haven't had crab that... More
