Decent food high prices

Joes is a good atmosphere but it is overpriced as compared to other sea food chains. Their serving sizes certainly fill you up but the cost per serving is high. Out waitress,Jing, was excellent. And don't forget try the patio punch because it's good as well!

Joe's Crabshack is a must on our twice a year visit to Branson. Located on the Landing, it sits on the banks of Lake Taneycomo. With floor to ceiling windows across the whole length of the restaurant and an outside dining area, it all makes for a perfectly relaxing way to end a day of shopping and site seeing, while... More

We were way unimpressed, for the second time. The first time we went was right after they opened and we gave them the benefit of the doubt. This being the second visit, we determined we definitely won't return. Just me and my husband on a Friday afternoon-not a busy day at all. The wait for a server and the food... More

We had lunch on a Saturday afternoon, we had about a 15 minute wait. Food was good and we had a good waiter that was entertaining. The wait staff also dances about every 15 minutes or so, the kids really enjoyed that part.

First time there, LOVED the interactions with the staff and customers was fun to watch. Our waiter was helpful, and full of life. Food was very good, had the oysters as an appetizer and the crab for dinner. It was amazing!!! Whoever said that the seafood in the Midwest was not good, they were very wrong.. The seafood I had...

Not all Joe's Crab Shacks are created equal. This is an average Joe's. The food is average, the drinks are slightly above average and the service is consistently below average. We use to visit a Joe's in a strange city, thinking that we could count on the consistency of the quality of the food and service. Branson's Joe's Crab Shack... More

As we walked in we were very excited about eating here. The one in our home town is AMAZING and has the best service. We quickly realized that this was not going to be the case. My friend and I took turns running to the restroom (which was not great) so that we could be seated. Finally about 20 mins... More

I've heard all the rave about these places and had never been so we went for our anniversary dinner...I got the crab daddy feast which was around a $35 meal...I'm a small girl and I left hungry so wasn't impressed with the amount of food i got for that price...it was good but nothing special in my opinion...
