I ordered Queen crab and it was delicious. My wife ordered Salmon (blackened) and it was very good. Service was great! We enjoyed the food.

This Crab Shack has a beach party atmosphere. Crab is served in a tub - and there is lots for your money. Some of it may be overcooked as they do cook in quantity - but it is good. Buckets are provided for the shells. It is a fun way to have crab with a noisy family.

Horrible quality crab... Literally inedible due to super salt "spices" added to the teeny tiny grade D crab legs. (Most likely to cover the ammonia flavor really old, lowest quality crab) Are king and snow crabs this small even legal to harvest? Taste of the misleading "fire grill" (it's a spice not actually grilled) was disgusting. It's not often I... More

Had a nice lunch at Joe's Crab Shack. The waitress Desiree was very nice and helpful. The wait time for food was long. The place was not crowded. So that was surprising.

Service was a bit a slow but food when delivered was of reasonable quality. However meal was disturbed when halfway through a disco ball was lit and all the staff suddenly came out with a chorus of YMCA. Some people may enjoy this I did not.
