Great food, good prices!

The perfect spot to dine next to the Wyndham Hotel... Joe's shares an adjoining parking lot which made it easy access without taking our car. We were pleasantly surprised to get in quickly on a Friday night around 7pm.

We were looking forward to coming back after visiting Joe's in May of 2014. Our last visit was so good and this time they lived up to our expectations. Everything we had from the appetizers to the main courses to the drinks (the piña colada on the Pineapple was awesome) was fantastic. Wow! Can't stress enough how good this place... More

I love Joe's Crab Shack. Just not this one. Wherever I go I look for a Joe's. So our experience here on June 26 was especially disappointing. I would have rated it 1 except the food was good. But the service was some of the worst I have experienced. If I had been alone I would have walked out. First... More

We ate here one evening and had never been to one of the restaurants before. I must say for seafood it was "just ok". Certainly didn't live up to the price!

The place was extremely busy as it was near the end of the musician's conference, so the wait was understandable. However, once seated, we had waiters switched on us not once but twice. Our food was cold when it finally got to us and was not very good either. We couldn't get drink refills to save our lives. Most of... More

My wife and I like to eat at seafood restaurants. We had an early dinner there a couple of weeks ago. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was nice. We were disappointed with the seafood that we ordered. The food did not appear the be freshly prepared and was on the cold side. We were probably partially at fault... More

When we visit the Anaheim area, we always gotta stop in and have a meal here. Great food and plenty of it. Good selection for the kids also. Friendly & helpful staff. Sever always checking on you & refilling drinks before you are finished with the current one. Get there early or you will be waiting for a table. Get... More
