Disappointing.

From it's name I thought I could have a light lunch of 'fresh' crab meat in a salad. (I have a gluten sensitivity so I am limited to what I can eat and even though they had a GF menu it was geared to dinner not lunch.) The best I could do was romaine and parmesan with grilled salmon.

Being a local we frequent Joe's more than most and this was the first time we have ever been disappointed. As usual the service was great, however when served our meal the food was "lukewarm" at best but still had the great flavor we enjoy. Being a hotel manager I understand how important customer feedback can be so when the... More

This was something special. Joe's is located right on the River and we asked for a table outside. It was a beautiful night on the river and Joes has half price cocktails on Thursdays. We ate and enjoyed drinks all while viewing the River and people at the landing. Lots to do and see. We had a great waiter (Jesse)... More

We were a group of 4. Waited over 1 hour on a Friday night. Went shopping while we waited & they text you when table ready - which was great. Food came in good time & was very tasty. Friends had the crab. First orders came out wrong. Brought another whole order. I had fish & chips & it was... More

We knew it would be busy but by the time they seated us, the restaurant was practically empty; really??!! It was about 10pm and the main crowds were long gone. I ordered the shrimp boil; wayyyyy overcooked. I would have sent it back but my dining companions were exhausted and hungry. It was awful! The crab pots that they ordered... More

Yes we had to wait over an hour for a table but it was so worth it. My family of 5 really enjoyed our experience. All of our food was delicious.

Although Joe's is a chain, it is by far one of my favorites. Richard our waiter was absolutely fantastic, very personable and professional. Love the atmosphere of Joe's, no rush, lots of fun and great food.

Not a very good dinner. Waited a long time for food to arrive. Waitress was nice. Food was terrible! Greasy! Will find a local establishment next time.

We went to Joe's Crab Shack at Branson Landing for lunch today and we loved it! The food came promptly to our table, hot and fresh. We had the best server, Patrick (give this guy a raise) who made our dining experience just perfect. We had great value for the money and didn't walk away hungry.

The noise in the restaurant was overwhelming. In addition, the music made it impossible to have a conversation with my husband. We left before ordering. As we were leaving, we met another couple walking out because of the noise. They also had been seated but didn't stay to eat. I can't tell you about the food. We won't be back.
