I am totally unimpressed by Joe's Crab Shack. The food is sub-par. Service is decent. Restaurant is very noisy.

A little on the expensive side, but the portions were big enough that it wasn't that big a deal. I wish they would turn down the music a bit, but other than... More

I really think it wasn't worth the money since the food was tasteless! I didn't give them a second try
