ordered fried items ---- they were dripping grease. Fried items can be done right, and that's what I expected. Couldn't hardly handle that. Will never go back again.

Crab legs steamed until were rubber, did not crack but bent.Difficult if not impossible to get meat out and much was wasted. Service mediocre at best. Very disappointed.

We shared the cheesy crab dip and it was excellent. REAL crab meat. My husband had the fish special and it was about average. I had the salad with the crab cake on tip and it was very good. Would definitely go again and recommend.

The same great experience we're used to at all Joes Crab Shacks. Fantastic food, friendly attentive staff, in a clean, upbeat atmosphere. Our entire family loved it! The comical hand written messages on the bibs are always a great personal touch. The cost of a meal for 6 here is a bit high, but we don't mind paying for good... More

We are seafood lovers. This is not the place for good seafood! The food was overcooked, tough and rubbery. We waited for awhile for silverware as we had none. The atmosphere was fun, the service staff did some dancing and such (where is our silverware?) it just was not that good and was very overpriced for what you got. Next... More

I had enjoyed my experiences at Joe's at different locations except the last two. I thought there was a decline in the quality of the food and the amount also. We were starting to think maybe we should start looking for something different when wanting crab legs. We were here for a few days and thought lets give it a... More

This has got to be one of the worst places I have ever ate. I ordered a lobster bucket, but when my bucket came to the table, it had no lobster in it. How do you leave out the most important item on the order? The server finally got to us after about a ten minute wait, and put the... More

I had never been to a Joe's Crab Shack before last week. Oh, we had tried 2 1/2 years ago to get into this restaurant while we were in the area vacationing but they had just opened and it was a long long wait to get in. This time..no wait at all. My husband and I shared the Ultimate Platter... More
