Dine here regularly as the only place in town that has decent real seafood. The slop buckets as some call them are exactly how most seafood out east where they have real seafood is served. Out east and down south this is the best way to eat real seafood. Keep up the good work.

I have been here several times over the years. Previously, I loved the activity and the singing servers that I've seen in the evenings. Today, we were there for a light lunch. It was very, very quiet, with lots of open tables....but we left happy. It was a day of Tuesday specials. We shared a very satisfying lunch of four... More

Planned to just do light items fro the Happy Hour Menus with a drink or two. Had specials on food and good drinks, not just bar pours. Place was busy , a good sign. Near our motel made it even better. We told the waitress up front we were not interested in a full meal, but would enjoy a few... More

Went to dinner with another couple. I enjoyed the restaurant and the seafood was very good. Everyone was happy, go lucky. A little more expensive than I thought but good seafood seems to be a more expensive lately.

Have always wanted to go to a Joes Crab Shack, this was the first time. Our waiter was EXCELLENT!! Can't remember what his name was, but we visited July 6 around 7 p.m. He was an older gentleman and said he was relatively new. Made the whole experience very enjoyable. Because of the hype and my always wanting to go,... More

We ate here while staying at a nearby hotel that was within walking distance. The staff were welcoming and assured us that sitting outside wouldn't be a problem. We weren't locals and they explained that we weren't in the bug season just yet and they also, tongue-in-cheek, said they didn't allow bugs! Our server was enthusiastic and explained the menu...

We went here end of Dec 2013. My husband brother in law and a friend. We went on a Saturday night and it was really dead in there. Made me wonder a bit. I thought it looked cool inside, but I thought the food was nothing special. Others got drinks and said they were good. But all in all it... More

This restaurant has been in the area for years. Hugely popular at first. Shut down. Resurrected and opened again. We went to give it a try. Average food at best. Way over priced for what it was. Disappointed.

I cannot get enough of this place. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is fun and they even have a playground.

We had are great time as not only was the seafood absolutely fulfilling, the staff was very engaged. Our waiter made our family time even better as he was very friendly. Oh my goodness the Lobster, crab legs and crab fries left us wanting more even though we were full. Look forward to visiting again!
