We ate here with a large group. The service was good and the food was excellent! I had the stuffed shrimp--yummylicious! It had been several years since we last ate at a Joe's Crap Shack and the food and atmosphere was as good as we remembered. We will be going again.

We went for dinner on a Friday night - made reservations and were greeted and seated promptly. Our server, Zoe, was very attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. She took our drink orders and let us know she was available if we had questions. When she came with our drinks we placed our entree orders and with her recommendation ordered... More

We stopped here on our way through Peoria on a road trip. I had the Blackened Mahi tacos and others in my party had the crab nachos and the kids chicken tenders. The Mahi tacos were wonderful as were the crab nachos. The kids meal was typical chicken tenders. The wait staff did a good job taking care of us.

Excellent service, good prices and so much choice (as long as you like fish, crab, lobster, prawns etc) all presented well. I never knew there were so many differ ways to cook this kind of food. The crab stuffed prawns were a favourite in our party.

Went there with the family. My son and step son ordered the steam pots. I ordered the crab legs. The place was virtually empty. The waitress was somewhat responsive but the food was really difficult to eat. I understand how to eat lobster and crab legs, but some of the pieces were just really small making eating the items difficult.... More

Just got in town and went for a family dinner. Our waitress was fantastic!! I'm not a big sea food person but everyone's meal was delicious. I wish it wouldn't have been so chilly outside because the riverside view was just beautiful! There's also a small play area right out the front doors for ppl w children! 👍

Great drink prices, service, and location. Half of the food did make up for the other half of a whole steampot that had what felt and tasted like rubber lobster and crablegs in which was not cooked right at all. The service and coconut shrimp did make up for it though. Must of been a bad night for that pot... More

We decided to drive 45 minutes just to eat at Joe's Crab Shack. Had I listened to relatives and the Urban Spoon, I would have been smart, Everyone said STAY AWAY. I ordered crab and lobster dinner. The crab was fine, but the lobster was overcooked and very tough, a steak knife would have been appropriate here. The French fries... More
