Finding decent seafood away from the coast is a challenge but Joe's crab shack does a great job. The service is good. They have a good selection of non seafood items for the kids! Remember no lunch Specials on the weekend. If you like Joe's this one won't disappoint.

We witnessed the manager cop a feel of our servers rear after she deliberately rubbed it on him. They then spent the night whispering back and forth. They're relationship was clearly noticeable and extremely inappropriate, even though they tried to be descriet. Keeping it classy at Joes.

We always go here on our trips to Branson. But this one is going downhill. Our server was distracted and didn't seem to care if we were there or not. The food was less than quality. Crab was cooked unevenly and quantities get smaller every time we go. My corn was cold and shrimp overcooked. Also, if the wait staff... More

Have eaten here several times and it is a hit or miss kind of place. We had a great waitress, and the atmosphere is a lot of fun but the food is a little disappointing. I had a bucket and it seems like the crab becomes less and less and the shrimp are laying in the bottom soaking up water... More

We visited Joe's over the weekend, we have been there several times before, but the food is always fantastic. Excellent clams, mussels, crab legs, and shrimp, plus all the trimmings.

The food was good, albeit pricey. Our waiter, Jessie, was fantastic. He was very personable. He had a quick, and often funny response to inquiries and comments. He really made our meal an enjoyable experience.

Stopped in for dinner and had a very nice and filling meal. The service was excellent and our waitress took very good care of us throughout our meal. The portions were of good size and none of us left hungry.

It is just like any other Joe's but it is in Branson. If you go in the evening, sit outside and away from the bushes so you can enjoy the view of the lit swing ride, people watching, and boats on the lake.

After waiting almost two hours, we sat down and ordered drinks, appetizer, and two kids meals before ordering our meal. We finally received our appetizer and ate it before even receiving the kids meal!! When we asked about the kids meal the waiter said it would come out when it was ready!! Finally after waiting an hour we received our... More

This was our first time at this establishment and we were definitely glad we planned our 4th of July crab feast at Joe's. The food was hot and fresh, portions were so big that we took some home to eat the next morning. I would highly recommend Joe’s to anyone who enjoys really good seafood.
