Being a crab lover from Australia, to be in this restaurant was a seafood experience like no other. They certainly knew their stuff Cooked to perfection, tables, bibs, Pickers, scrap bucket all went towards a clean, easy going but scrumptious dinner. Even hubby who doesn't eat crabs found lots on the menu to tempt his palette. The atmosphere all night... More

Not a great spot but open late - I'd only go as a last resort - didn't feel very clean and the service was bad even though the place was empty.

It has always been a dream of mine to eat. Ran fresh from the sea in LA just like you see in the movies! That dream came true for me at Joe's Crab Shack. The food was delicious and great value. I had a bucket of crab and it was divine. My partner had a seafood platter and he loved... 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.

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 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 just arrived and it was excellent. Love... More
