We were staying near Manhattan beach but were told by locals that the best crab prices were down in Redondo. Redondo and Hermosa have a different feel so they are worth checking out. We checked several places but either the ambiance wasn't what we were looking for or it was pricey... Finally we ended up at joes. I had left... More

This place has nice views and outdoor seating, but be prepared to wait. We were there at lunch time (not that busy), and including wait time to be seated, and the waitress coming to our table, it was over an hour from when we came in to when we actually received our food.

Our visit to this Joe's was so fun. Our waiter was amazing and suggested a great appetizer... And he had a great beard. The atmosphere was fun without being too noisy. The staff did a great Cupid Shuffle and were very enthusiastic.

This was our first experience of a joes crabshack and it was such fun. Being British we don't get the opportunity to eat crab so this was novel for us. It is quite noisy inside but we had a table on the veranda looking out onto the harbour. The service was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable!! My husband & I shared... More

This place had excellent service, but the food was hit or miss. You eat on picnic tables and it's messy so they put paper bibs on you. The silverware is in a metal can on the table and they give you a roll of paper towels in place of napkins. My husband had crab and it was decent, but messy.... More

We went here to get a take out. We were helped promptly by Demoni (or something similar) who said our food would be ready in 15-20 minutes. We ordered at 6.15pm and the restaurant started to get busy with groups waiting for tables. We started to wonder when our food would arrive by 6.45 but decided we'd give it a... More

Although very busy the day of our visit, they were happy to accommodate my diet restrictions....and when the veggies arrived with the salsa on them, it was quickly replaced! Granddaughter had an amazing dessert -- warm chocolate cake with chocolate sauce, graham cracker, Hersey bar and melted marshmallow ! Yum!

Lots of crab related food and fun place with quite a noisy crowd who I think came in on coaches. Waitresses very helpful and no-nonsense large quantities of food. The food was good and the bill reasonable.

My family took me here for my birthday. We had celebrated a birthday at a Joe's Crab Shack in Newport Beach a few years ago and had a blast. This experience was lackluster, at best. The food was good; I really like the steam pots. But it took for blooming-ever to get our dinner, then to get our dessert, and... More

First time to Redondo Beach and so first time to Joe's Crab Shack. Overall good experience. Free onsite parking if you're eating there (and during the weekday, it was not a big deal). Friendly service. Nice outside patio seating. Nice selection of seafood, even some land food (though why would you want to go to a 'crab shack' for steak... More
