Right on the water!

The great thing for us was how late the restaurant was open! We got into town late and were starving but definitely wanted seafood. They were out of the mahi, so that part was a bummer. We ended up getting steam pots which were good. Well mine was good... My husband accidentally ordered the one... read more

I decided to have the Snow Crab having seen catches on 'Deadliest Catch' Following the 'sampler' starter which was great, my dish was served. Wow, a huge plate with all the equipment needed including the bib. Not sure how a 'sausage' goes with Crab, but was ok. Decided the only way was to extract the crab onto a side plate,... More

Right next door to the Sheraton, where we stayed. Has outdoor seating, great service, excellent food (I had cedar-plank salmon that came with the plank and was delicious), large selection of beverages, including a Moscato wine, which I asked to taste first and was given a sample. Very reasonable prices. Would definitely go back.

This is only my second time here, It was crazy packed due to the memorial day weekend. The food was great just like before. Only thing was a 1hr and 30mins wait, no parking and low lighting out side. The view was amazing from the outdoor area.

Went to Jacksonville beach And decided to eat at Joe's since it was close and we wanted crab. The food was really fresh, and the simply steamed crab was delicious. However, the lobster was a little over done. I would definitely go there again!

Excellent food and service! Be careful cause easy to run up a tab there real quick. No complaints and never a dull moment. Love sitting out on the deck beachside just enjoying the beautiful weather. Make sure u try a shark bite drink. They are tasty!

I love going to Joe's Crab Shack. It's right on the ocean (one of the few remaining spots like that) and the wait staff is fun (they get up and dance to specific songs which is super fun). They have fun things they do for people's birthday. The crabs are quite tasty and you can get them in a variety... More

We were visiting my in laws from the Canadian prairies where we are land locked and get crappy seafood. Little did I know that the same seafood was served at Joe's Crab Shack RIGHT ON THE ATLANTIC OCEAN. Our service was great (thanks Drew) but our food was overcooked and flavorless. My husband had the fish tacos and said he... More

Party of 9. Ordered a variety of Crab Pots. Some appetizers pitchers of beer. Best service by 'Autumn'. Thanks!!!! Food is great. Not a fancy place but if it's all about the crab then this is the place to go. Laid-Back atmosphere and southern hospitality + Crab!!!!! What more can you ask for :)

We visited last Thursday for dinner. We were happy to find out that during the month of May they were running specialty drink 1/2 price specials on Thursdays. We were told there would be a 30 minute wait to sit inside so we went to the bar and ordered a drink. The outside of this restaurant has seen better days... More
