My husband is a lover of seafood so we choose to eat at Joe's Crab Shack. We have eaten here before and as always the staff is super friendly and the food is always good...

Great food, great service. The kids complained that the place smelled too fishy when we first went in but when they tasted the appetisers they were in heaven! My son ordered a steak as he's not a big fan of seafood but after tasting everyone's he wished he'd ordered crab. Great atmosphere highly recommended

We picked this restaurant because we were in the mood for crab legs, and boy were we blown away y the freshness and most tasty crab legs. A total gem and awesome experience. The classic crabpot was excellent and very generous serving of 2 different types of crabs, andouille sausage, shrimp, corn and potatoes. I'd go again in a heartbeat.... More

What an amazing place to eat for fish lovers! Not only that but so much cheaper than the Uk. Lots of familiar fare but many U S favourites too.

Third time we visited a Joe's Crab Shack this holiday, but all different locations. Service was ok, he tried. Restaurant was not half full, so it seemed a bit strange for him to be stressed. Had a starter to share, with crabdip, squid, and som round things, all nice. Crab good as always. Daughter just loves the outdoor playground, but... More

This was like visiting an undiscovered Joe's! We got seated right away. We had a great server and our crabs buckets were perfecto!

We were a large group.of 12 (2 families) and ate here for an early dinner. Service was good- particularly as we were a large table - and the restaurant was busy. Calamari, shrimp, sampler platters for starters followed by 'buckets of crabs' for entrées. Crabs were cooked perfectly and enjoyed by all.

We dined here for dinner on 6.8.14. Staff we're great but the food was average. Our starter was late which the management apoligized for stating they were backed up in the kitchen. My son and I ordered steak and asked it to be cooked medium and it came out really well done and had been standing for a while and... More
