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

Although we try to stick to local places while on vacation, we gotta stop at Joe's. The service was fast and friendly and the food was awesome as usual.

Always good food, great drinks, and great staff. I hope it stays that way. I love the buckets. Also, some of the best calamari I have ever had.

Just tried Joe's here in Sevierville. The service was good once we were seated, and the food was delicious. Typical Joe's..... But we arrived at the beginning of dinner, at a little after 5 pm. There were several open tables, and we had to wait 15 minutes. By the time we left, there was still a whole row of empty... More
