Yummy Crab and Chicken

My hubby doesn't get seafood much since I'm allergic, but we went to Joe's Crab Shack last night. He loved it! He had the Crab feast which had 3 different types of crab in it. I had the cheesy Chicken minus the seafood sauce. It was very good as well. They also got the cheesy crab dip... read more

We had dinner at Joe's Crab Shack on May 6th and really enjoyed our visit. We started with the crab dip which is my favorite. I ordered fried shrimp and my friend ordered a seafood plate. The decor is casual and relaxing in all Joe's Crab Shack Restaurants. It is a great place to come and enjoy a good meal... More

Where else can you get this quantity of crab at a good price? For a chain restaurant this place provides a good volume of food for a fair price. Not by any means fancy or exciting decor and a bit noisy (sitting outside is better). Prepare for a messy time eating all that crab...

The place is noisy and very plain with nothing special when it comes to decor and atmosphere. There is an outside veranda, with simple picnic style tables and chairs. The staff was friendly, however the service coming from the kitchen was very slow. We arrived at 7pm, we left after 9pm. The food was fine for most of the group... More

I have always liked Joes Crab Shack having visited a number in Texas and in California. Being a Brit we don't have quite a comparable seafood experience. Door to table time quick - prompt service by the waitress , a bit of a wait for the food and some folks seemed to be waiting ages but ours was ok. Quality... More

This was the first time I have visited a Crab Shack, and I was disappointed. I was part of a group of 7, and when we arrived, the restaurant was fairly empty. I was going to have a glass of wine, but they offer no house wines, and the price of the wines they did offer were, in my estimation,... More

Joe's never disappointed. They have great food and drinks. It is a little bit pricey but you won't leave hungry.I didn't see the difference in the new Bairdi crabs from the normal snow crab legs. My husband had the grilled oysters and said they were delicious.

First, it was filthy. The floor was a disaster. I overlooked that. We were brought dirty plates for our appetizers, when our food finally arrived there were tiny bugs underneath my fries I noticed after I had eaten half of them... This SAS because the waiter brought us no utensils or crackers to eat my crab with and could not... More
