We sat for 16 minutes and no one noticed us. I called for the manager and he was very helpful and apologized gave us a great waitress and a rush was put on our food. So great save with fantastic effort. Just wish the staff was more attentive.

I have never been a big fan of generally overpriced "cutesy" type restaurants. That said, I have been to this Crab Shack twice and the food has been really good! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is due to the less that 5 star service which has been slow. Also, our servers have been either new... More

Disappointed.. sat for 10 minutes. No service, no "hey, we will be right with you," nothing. We got up to walk out and i was stared at with disbelief by the 2 hostesses and the manager... still nothing. No "im sorry", no "let me get you drinks. The absolute worst treatment of customers is to ignore them. Wont be back...... More

We stopped by on a whim after church one Sunday. Big mistake. It was about 2pm and the restaurant had maybe 4 - 5 tables of guests. The place wasn't busy at all. There was 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 and 3 kids. The hostess sat us at a table. We sat there for almost 10 mins and... More

Kassie is the BEST. She's the best waitress @ Joe's. The food was great and so was the customer service. Thanks guys for making my husband laugh and for making the night fun. Great food and a great time, who could ask for anything more.

My Wife and I and our good friend travelled to Houston on a golf trip. We were staying in Humble and decided to eat supper at Joes Crab Shack. First off, as my Wife was snapping a few pictures outside, two well dressed men standing near by offered to take a picture of us together. This started us talking. It... More

The food was fresh and fabulous! My son and grandson devoured two buckets of snow crab, while my fries smothered in a luscious crab mixture was more than I could finish. Naturally I managed to finish them the next day for lunch. We all three went on our way full and happy! The prices are a bit high, but well... More
