This place is always packed, loud and fun to visit. The food is actually pretty basic but well prepared, but the whole atmosphere of a beach shack and great service and permanent crowds make it a nice place to go if you're looking for this kind of fun. Great for families and kids!

great food, very delicious. Our waitress didn't showed up many times, so we had to wait some time between refills for drinks and also it took a long time until we got our food, although the restaurant wasn't really crowded.

We stopped in for a late night meal. The view overlooking the river and the bridge were nice. The food and service was good.

Great restaurant right in Old Town Sacramento. The food was good, wait staff attentive. Not too expensive but not cheap.

My 8 year old nephew has gone to Joe's Crab Shack for the last three birthdays. Has great food and awesome family atmosphere. Should check it out at least once.

We always have a great time in this restaurant. The food and adult drinks are great. The staff are attentive (without being pushy) and seem to enjoy themselves, Fun atmosphere.

We had to wait for a table for awhile. They are very busy. The location is great, right on the water. Ask for a table that overlooks the water. Food and service is average, price is okay. The biggest draw is the location. You can see fireworks over the river if there happens to be Rivercats game across the way.

I am a healthy eater and there is nothing to eat at Joe's that I can feel good about. Even their gluten free menu has things that are not gluten free. But... It has a great view of the Tower Bridge and the river. The wait staff dance and sing. Kids can be loud and you don't have to worry.... More

Food was ok, nothing fantastic. Service was above average even though the server got our appetizer wrong. But the atmosphere is what keeps us coming back. It's always fun, upbeat and energetic. My kids love coming here because the servers sing and dance!

Always a treat to sit outside and look at the delta, even got to see the bridge lift for a boat. Food was great and so was the bloody mary. The service was friendly and prompt.
