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

This was my second visit to Joe's. The first time the food and service were great. Our visit today was very disappointing. The crab was moldy and the mussels were fishy. I couldn't and wouldn't eat either. The manager did the right thing and discounted the meal significantly. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt I will return.

We enjoyed our meal at Joe's. My family had everything from Dungeness crab to crab cakes to salmon to shrimp. All were well prepared. For dessert, we enjoyed the s'mores and the key lime pie. The staff was very friendly and efficient. I wish they had more non-Budweiser beers on draught. A fun restaurant, with good food and service. We... More

The hostess was really nice to us and we were seated immediately, even though it was a Friday night. I was surprised that there weren't very many people there with it being the weekend. The server (Ariel, I believe) was really kind as well--she promptly brought a high chair for our baby and make very nice small talk. Our party... More

We eat here often and enjoy the consistently good fare. The prices are a little on the high side for this chain, but the portions are quite generous, the wait staff is friendly and accommodating and the food is always good.

Awesome food, with decent service. Prices are always higher than I'd like, but I keep coming back for the food. I wish they had one in my home town.

My hubby and i went there for our 2nd anniversary and we had a great time. The staff was fun and friendly. They helped us decide what to have and it was fabulous. I love going there and the people are always fun and friendly. The food is awesome and we always have a great time.
