Convenient to our hotel. We walked there! Very good food and good value. The outside was deceiving. Great atmosphere. Will definitely go again.

OK food, watery Margaritas. indifferent hostess placed us in the sun in the corner next to stairs because everything is booked while TRHEE tables under umbrellas with the ocean view stayed vacant all our lunch time.

We are seasoned vets at Joe's Crab Shack. Never had issues with anything until this last trip. I'm not sure what's going on at this location but they need to reevaluate why they are in business. The service was horrible. I had to ask 4 times for the drink for our toddler. The waitress kept forgetting we had ordered her... More

Great place to take visitors, go as a tourist, or go as a local. One of the very few places ON the beach and with parking. Service has always great. Food is a little pricey - so remember that this is a treat to yourself as the food is great and the location is amazing! You can even put your... More

The service was bad. We sat on the crowded patio, but still didn't see our server often. We had the Shore Platter. The fish was dry, but had good flavor. The drinks and crab dip were good.

My husband and I stopped here after visiting the Jacksonville zoo with our 2 month old daughter. They were extremely accomodating to the car seat situation and very polite to us the entire time we were there. This was my first experience with any Joe's Crab shack and it was very entertaining. The staff danced to the song "Cotton-eyed Joe"... More

Service above average. Food was pretty good. Drinks good. What you expect from a chain restaurant. It must have been good because we ate there twice in 3 days.

I haven't been in town for about 18 months and made this my first stop. It's as good as ever and I love sitting out on the deck overlooking the beach. The service is attentive & friendly. The food is good but I miss the Mahi Sandwich which was always my favourite; the replacement Blackened Mahi Taco dish is great,... More
