What a great night! Terrific food, fantastic friendly service and we felt it was good value for money. Reviewing the check, we discovered they had missed charging us for a pre-dinner drink at the bar, and when we brought this to their attention they were not going to charge us. We insisted as we were not there for a freebie,... More

Loved that the place was easily assessible. We went on a Saturday night and no wait to get in. The food entrée and appetizers was both spicey but delicious. Live family fun entertainment dancing and singing. The food was great staff involved and efficient. I would return again.

Took a short walk from our hotel to Joe's Crab Shack- pretty surprised by the steep prices for crab entrees but then again there are no other options other than fried foods. We selected the coconut shrimp with fries and Cole slaw- i will say they were done well and had a very nice orange marmalade dipping sauce. Bottom line... More

We've eaten at the Joe's Crab Shack in our hometown and so had a level of expectation upon arriving at this location. At first we thought it was going to be an unpleasant experience as the restaurant was not full and they had a difficult time seating our party of 6. When our food arrived it was served to 5... More

We ate here after a long day at Disneyland. Close to our hotel and a great decently priced meal. Would eat here again if we were in the area.

Average service and food. Felt a bit grimy but This could have been due to the fact that it is only dimly lit inside. The music was very loud and with the speakers directly overhead conversation was difficult. The kids play ground is a great idea and well used by our group. Food was OK but once again no vegetables... More

We were staying across the street at the Marriott while visiting Disneyland and some people were telling us that this place was very good. I had to see for myself, so off the family and I went for dinner. It was a different experience for me that's for sure. I don't know if I'd rave about the food, but it... More
