We got there early and had to wait for our party to arrive. We sat at the bar and enjoyed large margaritas and an equally large appetizer of calamari. The calamari was overly breaded, doughy and not crisp. Our party arrived and we went to the dining room to order meals. The three teen agers ordered crab legs, all different... More

The food was very good, great selection of seafood and fresh. You would not think of seafood in the Midwest. But the staff was excellent. The were friendly and new the menu, great help with the selection and good recommendation to get the most of what we wanted.

A fun environment with good drinks and great seafood for a chain restaurant in the middle of the Midwest. You won't go away hungry, for sure. Stick with the buckets or steam pots, we've ordered the other menu ties and have been less impressed.

we came in very hungry. we left very hungry. service was poor. we ordered a lobster and snow crab bucket. there was not enough food in it for a 6 year old child. it was vastly overpriced. over all I would rate this restaurant a big fat rip off.

The service is always good. The food is good; however, I think overpriced. They have delicious drinks and the atmosphere is fun.

Absolutely loved this place! Well worth the detour from our trip route. Will be sure to visit everytime I'm near the Twin Cities! My whole family (6 people counting myself) loved the food and atmosphere.

I was craving seafood and a couple of my friends and I decided to come here. It was not worth it; I ordered The Great Barrier steampot & clam chowder and my friend got the Crab Daddy Feast. When I received my order, I only got 2 crab legs and half a piece of crab leg: I was so disappointed!... More

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
