This place is terrible. We had a group of 12 people, they told us they could seat us immediately, it took almost an hour of waiting in the doorway. No one ahead of us and many open tables. Most of the dishes are served in slop buckets. No sides or anything with your entree. One got the slop bucket of... More

Not certain where everyone goes to lunch in Roseville MN, but I ended up here at Joe's Crab Shack on a cold 20* day. What's better than a bottomless bowl of chowder and salad you might ask? I say nothing... Except for the service! So here's the rundown: - Was I satisfied: Yes - Will I go back: Yes -... More

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 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.
