We ate here on 8/20/14. Evening, parking lot was full so we expected a long line to get seated. But it didn't happen, got in and seated quickly. Waitress Cory was a pleasant person quick service and friendly. My wife had Coconut Shrimp and I the Maui plate. We shared some as we always do. The check was reasonable. Last... More

This was one of the best places to eat. We had the best server, Jud, and he always had a smile on his face and eager to help and please us. Even the manager, Allison, came and visited with us. We ordered the popcorn shrimp dinner and by the last of the small shrimp, they began to look like fantail... More

Have been to Joe's in San Antonio, and two in the Phoenix area. This one is the best. If you never have been, and you like seafood, you must go. Staff breaks out in dance moves occasionally, and be sure to tell them it's your birthday. But beware, you WILL perform. (Harmless fun). We have never had a bad meal... More

My husband and I stopped for a late lunch. With us there were only nine patrons inside. Host sort of "greeted" us - no friendly hello, glad you're here, etc. Our server told us she was in training and we could tell she was trying. We ordered our beverages which took a long time coming because the bartender was on... More

Joe's Crab Shack in Lubbock offered up some very good seafood during our stop for lunch. The staff was very friendly and even performed a dance to "YMCA". They offer a nice variety of seafood choices and everything that I have tried has been very good. Try the Spiked Ice Tea for a cool refreshing adult beverage.

Had dinner here last night. It was busy but we were seated quickly and service was great. The food was the same as any other Joe's Crab Shack, which to me is a good thing.

Went on a Saturday evening and the kids entertained themselves at the playground area while we waited for our table. We had the calamari appetizer and Sunset Fire Grilled Steam Pot for 2 and several children's selections. Everything was tasty and service was friendly. Not a quiet restaurant by any means but that was fine by us.

Delicious, fast services, wonderful atmosphere. I would recommend going here for sure. The crab is the best I have found.

Short and to the point...the only reason this restaurant got a 2 rating (instead if a 1 rating) was because the beer was cold! Do yourself a favor, go somewhere else.

Service was awful, from Hostess, that acted like she didn't care if we went somewhere else or not. The food should not have been served. Coconut Shrimp was greasy and stuffed shrimp was not cooked thoroughly.
