We were definitely underwhelmed when we went here for lunch today. The portions are small and overpriced. The service was also average. We have been to a Joe's in Virginia which blows this Joe's away. We won't be back anytime soon. Too many other restaurants in the area to try.

We were there for a family party of 15. With reservations, we were seated immediately. I ordered the salmon dinner and it came out so dry I had to send it back. The manager came over and apologized and offered to remake it or make me something else. Since she said she has the salmon all the time and it... More

They have a fun atmosphere. Almost like you are at a party by the bay. The food is better than the other chain seafood restaurant's but definitely still frozen like the rest. It's not fresh seafood but still good. It wouldn't be my first choice but I would return.

We took our daughter here for snow crab legs as a treat. She ordered the giant bucket full, my husband ordered the steamer bucket. My son couldn't decide between coconut shrimp and crab cakes, and was delighted to find that he could order a crab cake sand which with the cc shrimp on the side! I had Malibu shrimp. We... More

First time ever being at a Joe's Crab Shack. Oh goodness what a great time digging into that pot. It was delicious and they were all so nice and we had a blast with the bibs with they put on them so funny. What a great time with sister and friends. Will do it again soon.

We always look for fun places to go to dinner as we have some very active boys. They have a great outdoor sand playground for the kids to play in while you sit on the deck and eat. You can still watch the kids too. Food is good for a chain and the prices are reasonable.
