Not the Best

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.

It was a Saturday night and my wife and I and some good friends went to Joe’s. Being a Saturday it was not unexpected for there to be a wait. After about forty-five minutes we were seated. 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.

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

Great sea food (for a non-coastal town), large kids' menu and full bar. What's not to like? Service was fast and courteous. It's walking distance from the Hampton Inn Hotel across the street - so keep the beer coming. Don't forget to check out the wall tile work in the bathrooms - neat!

My wife and son had fish and chips. I had a seafood platter with flour battered fish, shrimp, and scallops. The batter tasted like flour and the fish was tasteless. My son did not eat his fish which was overdone and chewy. My wife's fish had a hot spicy jalapeño flavor. She was was unable to eat it. The shrimp... More
