Best JCS visit!

I've visited many Joe's in my time and it's usually a good time. First of all, this place has a spectacular outdoor seating area right on the water, across from the pier. My waiter, Darryl, was over the top....such a great guy, really made the meal. He recommended succulent, fresh crab that had... read more

Atmosphere was casual dining with western decor. Food was good and fish was fresh. Crab and lobster was delicious and meat was tender. A great place for family or hanging out with friends and co-workers.

Great water view and seating. Started in the bar waiting for the rest of our party. Amazed that the wine by the glass selection was the likes of Sutter Home and Kendall Jackson for the high end. Sat outside at a picnic table and ordered the mozzarella sticks (the only non seafood appe') and the double dip of crab &... More

I've only written one other bad restraunt review, but Joe's Crab Shack in Redondo Beach deserves it. All I needed was food and beer to watch the final in the World Cup, or so I thought. Joe's was one of the only places close to the hotel that had the game on, as well as food and beer. The beer... More

Just an average chain experience. God I so hoped that their food would be good. Service was ok. Seafood was just at best average.

This was the first Joe's Crab Shack we ever ate at. I had a hurricane to drink, and I thought it was a good value. We got the two lobster dinner and a shrimp bucket. We enjoyed the dinner sitting out watching the boats and seals or sea lions. All in all, it was a fun evening. The other couple... More

Great chain location, food was fresh, hot and well prepared. Extended happy hour is a nice touch. Walking distance from the Portofino Hotel.

Went for the complementary crab nachos that you can get online. Was a bit wary after reading previous reviews as I am very particular about service. Food was great , drinks are half price on Thursdays and the service was excellent. I was very surprised at the prices. Very fair and generous portions. Our server was good and didn't rush... More
