Enjoyable lobster lunch.

Joe`s is right on the beach and when we visited was rather empty due the freezing weather outside. We had only eaten breakfast two hours early so we went for the Bean town bake which was 2 lobsters, potato ,sausage,clams and corn served in a pot at your table. We really enjoyed our lunch but do not... read more

Loved the food and the friendly service. This Joe's Crab Shack was the best. Not too crowded if you go a bit early 5-7pm.

My mother and I were taking a road trip in July of 2012 (I couldn't select a year earlier than 2014 and I wanted to be honest); through Florida and decided to check out Jacksonville Beach first. Joe's is perfectly located directly on the beach with spectacular views if you decide to eat outside. This was our first time at... More

The view is great, the food is good and it's right down the street from my house. Plus, I've been going there ever since i was 5 yrs old.

This restaurant was located in a rather trendy area of Jax Beach. I was shocked by the outside appearance of the building as it looked very run down. My son and I were there for a late lunch. I was looking forward to some fine wine and fresh seafood. He was just hungry. He chose the fish and chips which... More

The location is great and the view is superb, but the food is only average. The staff is very nice and personable. I'd rate this as a take your kids to lunch there if you happen to be at Jacksonville Beach and your kids like seafood.

Today my girl friend and I celebrated an early Valentine's Day. I had never been to Joe's Crab Shack but had always seen there commercials with these pots so full of sea food that they poured over the side. This how ever was no where near the case. After an hour drive we arrived and we're not greeted when we... More

Perfect location! However food and drinks kinda lacking. Watered over sweet drinks, and not so special food. People are very friendly and nice. The crablegs in pot literally left us hungry had to have a second dinner somewhere else. Go for location and friendly service, not for food

They have lots of steamed crab and other selections, but one thing they are famous for is their fried seafood platter. It was huge! It had everything on it and all was very fresh

Flew in late and Joe's is right next to the hotel I was staying in for the weekend. The Front Desk clerk gave me a free app coupon so I ordered the Garlicky Mussels for the appetizer - very tasty - and went with the Maui Mahi for dinner. The piece of fish was a little small but cooked very... More
