2nd anniversary

Since we were staying right on the ocean we should have seafood, so we went here. My husband smokes so we sat outside. The food was good and our sever was great. He asked if we were celebrating anything and we said our 2nd anniversary. He hand wrote Clever sayings on our bibs, and later on had... read more

I have eaten here many times before as it is hard to beat their fresh steamed seafood in an oceanfront setting. On this occasion I was very disappointed by the whole experience. We ate here on a quiet midweek night just after a thunderstorm. Due to this the outdoor seating was wet so we had to have an indoor table.It... More

While this particular Joe's had an upbeat, happy vibe, it had a few things that weren't so savory. We liked the music playlist, but it was a smidge too loud for dinner conversation. Since the menu is filled with items that are on the pricey side, we opted for the $13+ popcorn shrimp (one of the more affordable items), which... More

I was a little disappointed in the steam pot I got, the crab legs was steamed to long, but the server did bring me out some more and were much better, but try the crab nacho's they were awesome, and our server Megan was great!

Our waiter was hands down the best. He made us laugh, gave excellent service, and made sure the seafood came out quick. Prices were as expected, tons of seating, and beautiful desk out back over looking the ocean! The parking which is across the street (FREE) has an attendant at all times. Do not park there to go to the... More

You do better buying the seafood and cooking yourself. Overpriced seafood with the worst taste EVER. All that seasoning they sell, seems they could actually put that on the food. Bland tasteless food for 100.00. If you have money to give away.....give to the homeless not Joe's Crab Shack!!!!

After a long walk on the beach, Joe's Crab Shack is a must. We started with cocktails that were both tasty and inexpensive. The menu included someone for everyone and portion sides were excellent. Staff and atmosphere help to make this a memorable stop on our vacation. This will definitely become a must visit again next time we are in... More

Our party of five was looking forward to great seafood but we were very disappointed. We went on a Thursday evening and it was not very busy. My husband and I ordered a seafood platter that was supposed to have fish, chips, scallops, shrimp and calamari. It was 19.00 to begin with. (Not bad if the meal is great) there... More

What a fun place !!! I had never been and it was really great place for lunch or dinner. I had coconut shrimp and hush puppies. Excellent! My drink of choice was Shark Bite. Besides the drink being delicious, the wait staff brought it over and presented it with theatrics. Super cool! Upbeat place, thoroughly enjoyed it there. Others in... More
