We were walking around downtown, after going to a museum, and decided to try Joe's. We have never been to a Joes Crab Shack anywhere before so we were not sure what to expect. The atmosphere was fun, the décor a little funky and the food was excellent. My wife ordered the crab legs and we also go the great... More

My daughter had just been released from the local hospital after having a baby and she wanted, REAL food. She chose Joe's & we weren't disappointed. Seated quickly at a table that had a great view. Our server was Logan & he was just great. Anticipated when we needed drinks refilled,etc.

I ate here on 6/05/14. They have a nice selection of morately priced seafood. I had a combo platter. The service was quick and the outside dinning gives you a nice view.

I politely said she was invading my space. She became very loud so I asked for the manager. I said this was... More

Had a early supper day before ironman and it did not disappoint! The coconut shrimp were big, not over done and not greasy, and the sauce was great too. The crab Alfredo was also very good, not heavy but was rich. The atmosphere was fun and Desiree was very pleasant as our waitress. Nice local and would love to be... More

Good food, good time! My husband got a steam basket and he really liked it. I got grilled shrimp and thought they were pretty good. The servers all danced when a certain song came on. It was a busy place but the service was fast. Overall, I'd go again.
