Fun place to eat

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... read 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.

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

Joe's used to serve wonderful crab, notably Dungeness. However the last couple of times I've been there their seafood has been lackluster. The crab has been not full in the shell and tasteless. Sorry, Joe's. There aren't many places in the South Bay that holds themselves out as crab specialists.

The food is reasonably priced, nice taste to it. I had the shrimp wrapped in bacon and love the taste of it.

We were seated out on the patio where it was quite chilly for my two small kids. It took at least 10 minutes for anyone to even greet us and take our drink order, much less get our food order in in a timely fashion - another thing that makes it hard with kids. We had a long wait before... More

I often wonder about the people we see in the area of the Redondo pier. How many of them are tourists and how many are locals? We used to walk down there for Mexican food with a view, hot dogs on a stick or inexpensive fried seafood. There was an Indian restaurant I liked and a fish market I fancied,... More
