We had a fantastic meal! There was a party going on and it got a bit too loud to talk with our dining party at times, but it cleared out not long after we arrived and we had a great meal. Our server was fantastic - even with as busy as the restaurant was, he was prompt and didn't skip... read more

Well, the GPS was wrong and finding the Joe's Crab Shack became a quest. But we finally found it and parked in the huge parking lot serving Branson walking downtown area. About 30 minutes after parking we finally made it to Joe's Crab Shack. An hour and a half wait we were seated, but to be fair after a survey... More

When Joe's first open we went there a few times and were put off by the volume of the music and the wait staff leaving your table repeatedly to do a line dance. It made the visit last far longer than necessary and you had to yell to order or talk to people at your table. Even though the food... More

Went to Joe's with the family and the kids loved the atmosphere!! Kids meals were cold. I ordered a steam pot...it was good. Husband had shrimp and calamari and it was cold also. Wait staff was great!!

We always enjoy Joe's. The food is consistently good. In Branson the wait is usually way too long. Go early to get your name on the list and then go shop for awhile. The text service that lets you know your table is ready works great at The Landing. Be prepared, it's very touristy.

I've been there several times. It's definitely chain restaurant food. Our snow crab legs were small and over cooked; they stuck to the sides of the shell. It's pricey for the amount of crab that you get.

Eaten there many times. Good food good service. Delicious cocktails. Wait staff stops and celebrates special occasions and they do line dances ever so often.

Joe's Crab Shack was a family reunion pick. We had to go along if we wanted to visit with the folks. It is not our favorite place. This was the first time we had visited. They got our order right and it was brought out in reasonable time. The crispy shrimp and chips was just average. The shrimp was supposed... More

The wait in long but we'll worth the wait. And let's be honest, if you go ANYWHERE in Branson you're going to have to wait so at least wait on good food! It's a fun environment for anyone! And the food is to die for! If you like sea food it's definitely worth trying!
