I am a crab addict! The Queen Crab Steambucket and the Crazy Good Crab Dip are my go-to choices! The people are friendly, the restaurant's clean, and the food is DELICIOUS!

Took 10 minutes to get acknowledged once we were seated. Took 5 for drinks to arrive. Caesar salad didn't have dressing, so I asked for some. I was brought a little paper cup of it and there was a totally saturated French fry in it! Server was sweet, but just not good. We were splitting a big meal since it... More

We ate here with our 2 boys for dinner. The view of the river was great, outside seating on patio available but closed due to weather, so we were giving a table with nice view. Great kids menu, nicely varied regular menu. Service was prompt and food was delicious. We had a very nice dinner and will definitely be back... More

My husband and I couldn't make our original reservation, so we decided to give Joe's a try. We arrived late around 9:30 pm. That didn't stop us though because this place stays open til 1 am on a Saturday night. We immediately ordered drinks and an appetizer. I ordered the hurricane and it was strong and tasty if you like... More

This one I'm definitely going back to. The view of the city is spectacular, the service was very good, and the place is nice. But what makes it a jewel is the food: it couldn't be better. I was there with friends and we all ordered crab to share (four different pots), and they were all delicious. Hot steaming, well... More

After a few beers at 8 Ball Brewery over the road it was time for some carb heavy fare to soak up some of the beer. Joe's did just the job with the added bonus of giving us a great view of the Ohio river and impressive bridge spanning the water. It was pretty quiet for a late lunch but... More

Good good, great service! The view of the city from the patio is beautiful! Great place to go during the summer to sit out and relax. Love their tie-dyed T-shirts too!!

We had never been to a Joe's Crab Shack until this visit and now will not be going back. Maybe the staff was winding down for the evening, who knows? The restaurant was less than a third full on Sunday evening so we were seated quickly. First a server came to take our drink orders, but when we asked which... More

Visited here mainly to be seated outside with a river view during the nice summer weather. Upon arrival during lunch time hours noticed the restaurant was almost void of customers. We were seated within a few minutes (longer than I thought it should take). Limited and pricey lunch menu items from which to select. My companion ordered a burger with... More
