My husband and I had a gift certificate and stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. The weather was nice so we asked to sit outside. The view of the river was nice; however, we were seated at a table that would seat 6, that was in a traffic pattern for the wait staff....there were plenty of other tables. Needless... More

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
