Improvement since my last visit...

I visited the location again. My last visit was nearly 3 months ago. My waitress this time around was Amilia. She was kind and attentive. My friend and I had needed extra's and we got what was requested in a short amount of time. When we arrived it seemed to have a new host since it showed he was... read more

The restaurant is located right on the waterfront. Right as you enter, you know it's going to be awesome! The servers are all peppy and pumped up. At certain points thorough our visit, the all gathered in the center and started dancing! This is the best Crab Shack location I have been to. I think this restaurant is a MUST!... More

I have been disappointed by Joe's in the past, but this location rises above the average Joe's experience. Good waiter. Minor issues, but he corrected them quickly and completely.

I hope this is the right one as its the only one isted and close to where we were in Oceanside California. The place was filthy, they allowed a huge St Bernard in the dining room and ii love dogs but really? The staff were high school aged kids running in all directions but the right one for customer service.... More

I enjoyed sitting at the bar having a few margueritas, which were very good. The bartenders are very attentive and pleasant. When I was there it was a young crowd, but a fun atmosphere. I did not try the food at all, since I was only there for a short time for drinks.

Just been there 2 days ago, and I have to say that, everything was very good, but above all, the best service ever. The main asset of this place is AMBER, she's just the best, Thank you so much for your hospitality.

We went to this place on a recommendation from the hotel and it was great. Casual atmosphere and great crab. They had $2 drink specials on also. Best margarita! We shared the crab pot for two and it could have fed 4!
