Just dropped in on Friday for the first time in a year. I used to be a frequent flyer over the past twelve years. I enjoyed my seafood as always but it was just too loud for my pleasure. I am not the loud party type when I am trying to eat and enjoy my friends. The music was so... 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.

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.

My husband and I recently visited Joe's Crab Shack on Rt. 1 to celebrate an event (just the two of us). We were a bit off-put by the amount of cars in the parking lot, but were seated right away. Our waiter, Dan, was polite and served us in a reasonable amount of time. My husband ordered the Cajun steam... More

After my daughter's college graduation, we took a small group of 20 to this restaurant. Very comfortable atmosphere, the food was very good. Staff was polite and very accommodating and took care of all our requests. They were busy that day as they are near Rider College, but drinks and food were flowing with no extended waits.
