My wife and I came here for lunch when we were in this area of Denver. It was snowing a little and I think some people were afraid the storm would hit so there weren't too many people there. Jessica our server was great! She went over the menu with us and gave us some good suggestions. We decided on... More

Food is overpriced; shrimp was tough. Atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. French fries were soggy and warm. Will not return.

the lobster was very good. A little small but still very good. It was a night they had a special on lobster and some drinks. Sat at the bar, the server was good and did a good job of taking care of every one at the bar.

Love Joe's Crab Shack. Always a good time and always great food. I have friends that visit from Kansas and every time they are here, we HAVE To go to Joe's. Do NOT come here if you want a quiet, intimate meal.

The food was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Clean and well maintained. Service was great too. Cheaper than red lobster and 100x better. Definitely will go back. We had 4 different meals and they were all great.

We haven't been there in awhile but the food is great, service is great. The steamed crab pots are the bomb, we went to one in St Louis & it was just as good as the one in Aurora! Looking forward to the next visit sometime.

When you eat crab you expect it to be fresh. Especially for the price. Overpriced for the taste frankly. Service was alright but waiter did not come chck on us for almost 20 minutes. Food was not worth the price.

Except for someone birthday...all we got were screaming kids and good crab. Miss the manager who used to run this establishment....he kept people happy, visited tables and... More

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...
