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.

If you have a seafood allergy, don't come here. It is a shared kitchen and heaven forbid you bring something in. Totally rude manager. My kids love eating at Joe's but manager is very unaccomodating to customers with allergies so we won't be back here. Other Joe's Crab shacks have never been this unaccomodating.

Didn't feel like eating fish so I had the steak and it was horrible. The crab cake was tolerable. The service was at least ok.

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
