After a short 15 minute wait on a Saturday evening we were seated at a table. The music and noise of other diners on this busy night was so loud that my husband had to move next to me so we could converse. There was lots of activity in our area with an abundance of wait staff. Service was very... More

My family loves seafood, especially shellfish. While I tend to avoid chain restaurants, I decided to make a trip to the only Joe's Crab Shack in MN. Not only did we wait twice as long as the hostess suggested, it also took both our drinks and food 2-3x longer to arrive than anticipated. As expected the food was substandard, and... More

Made an reservation for 1pm. Did not get seated immediately and the place was not even busy. Had to ask 2 times about when our table would be ready and got an different answer from 2 employees. Service was slow and food not that great for some people. Both me and my wife got sick from the place. Take the... More

The one star (and that's stretching it) is for the delightful waitress and the delicious adult beverages. Appetizers were good and so were the children's burgers and pizza. However, the entrees - and the very reason we made the trip to Roseville - were disgusting. I have never tasted cold, under-cooked lobster in my entire life. UNTIL tonight that is.... More

I ordered a bucket of crabs and a crab dip. Crab was over cooked, tasted bland. Crab dip had so much salt it was nasty. The waitress/bartender was too busy with drinks to cater to me. The only bright spot was the nice manager, but I did not have the heart to tell him my 40 dollar mean was a... More

My husband and figured we would give them a try since we were tired of eating at Red Lobster. Well put it this way we even ordered 2 plates to go. They offer various seasonings for your crab legs, which we were definitely impressed by. Their menu has a ton to offer from steak to seafood. If you don't like... More

Taking advantage of travel leaving from the Twin Cities airport, we finally got to go to this restaurant after watching their ads on TV, and having none in Wisconsin. I labeled it an experience, because it was really "it". The staff is just crazy, (in a good way), they sit at your table, they joke, they sing, they put on... More

I called Joe's at 2:00pm to make a reservation. They only take reservations for parties of 5 or larger. So, I asked what was typical of the wait for a party of 2 for around 6:00pm. He said no problem....minimal. We get there at about 6:10......WE WERE TOLD THE WAIT WOULD BE 1.5 HOURS. Oh well, we decided to wait.... More

Joe's is a great combination of good food and a fun place to eat. My kids love the exuberant waitstaff and the join-in-singing and dancing and we love the difficulty of choosing from among so many things that look great. And the fact that no matter what we end up choosing, it is in fact great, every time.

>First, the negative... the place is expensive... The food is great, but we can only afford to go there for special occasions. For 4 of us, each getting a crab pot, 1 appetizer sampler, 3 desserts, drinks, & an 18% tip, came to $200. >The other minor negative... would prefer a little less Old Bay Seasoning. >But the food is...
