Fun Place!

I like Joe's Crab Shack. It has a fun atmosphere, and the food is good. Service is good, too. It's very convenient when staying in the Hampton Inn or one of the other hotels there close.

We love coconut shrimp. The waitress was very interesting - she had just spent 90 days in Ireland as part of her schooling - cool tp talk to her about Ireland.

This was our second experience with a JCS. The food was good but nothing special. I will say that there was plenty of it. The waitress was exceptionally friendly and helpful.

This restaurant has been here a long time and has lost it's luster. It is not very clean and lots of problems like computers down , kind of a training place for first time wait staff, etc. Everyone was nice but wouldn't take a date.

The waiter took our order and we enjoyed visiting for a while although it was very noisy and loud. During our wait our... More

We love to eat at Joe's Crab Shack. This location is conveniently located within walking distance to a couple of hotels. The food and drinks are good and the service is relatively quick and super friendly.

The start of our 25th anniversary trip did not start of good. Went to Joe's for lunch. Had the double dip appetizer, it was good. Decided to not have a steam pot, and try something different. Wife had a spicy shrimp plate, that was very spicy and very good. I had a new item called Hush puppy casserole. It was... More
