Great family place! Wonderful seafood selection and good service. Every hour or so, the waiters and waitresses perform. Saw them perform to "Car Wash". Fun, noisy and easy!

The food and service were wonderful. The meals you get are bigger portions...but there aren't many items on the menu under $18.

Too expensive in my opinion. Also, no napkins, but rather a roll of brown bathroom paper towels and a scrap bucket on each table. Went once for lunch and experienced the wait staff dancing and singing on the counter tops. Nice to try once, but I doubt I'll be going back.

My husband and I discovered this place a few months ago and will often come here. The crab nachos are great and are really a meal themselves. We have tried a variety of the pots and we don't have a favorite. They are all good, but a tad over seasoned. The wait staff are pleasant and the manager often stops... More

I love lobster, so when someone told me this restaurant has lobster, here I go (also this is the nearest Joe’s crab to my home). As soon as we entered, friendly smiles already awaiting us. The atmosphere was great - a lively restaurant, the music was great, the service was great, and need not to say, the food was great.... More

Treated my son for his 25th birthday (he's never eaten here), and we had a great time. We all enjoyed our food, and alot of it! My son did get a mixed drink that he didn't like, and they kindly took it off our bill. Very friendly waitress and overall great night!

We recently went for lunch on a shopping trip. We always find the servers friendly, knowledgeable, quick and efficient. We recommend the seafood sampler for an appetizer...the crab nachos are delicious... We had the crab legs and fries special and they were excellent. Can't wait till we go again I only wish they would come to Canada!
