August Family Birthday Celebration! Party of 5... We arrive at Joe's and there are 5 unmotivated, uninviting unfriendly hosts/servers leaning here and there near the entrance.

August Family Birthday Celebration! Party of 5... We arrive at Joe's and there are 5 unmotivated, uninviting unfriendly hosts/servers leaning here and there near the entrance. One of them finally asked how many in our party?...We say......5. They all start looking around as if half the restaurant wasn't empty. One of the unmotivated female individuals says "I'll take it". Wow!... More

Good food, great prices. The "pots" are usually big enough for two. Be patient as they seen to have lots of new staff that has not learned the menu as well as the customers. Two visits in three days and two new staff

The food here is good but the secret to this place is the bar. E.T. will take care of you with unbelievable Tuesday specials. If you sit inside or outside, fun and a great time is to be had. The Godfather

My granddaughter loves crab and loves the noisy, busy environment and has been here for several birthdays and donned the chicken hat and danced through the house. There's a lot of food for the price and its pretty good, but there are better seafood places around. For family dining, its very friendly with outdoor seating and a place for the... More

Great food for my first visit. The waitress Rachelle was and is an awesome waitress. Will be back there again. Also the restaurant manager was very sweet and very attentive. I enjoyed it. - Gilbert

The last time we ate here my son got sick, he got the king crab bucket. I thought I smelled something that just didn't smell right. Service was slow too. Will not come back here again.

Noisy. Skillet paella was nothing like paella. It was jambalaya and was just okay. Fish entree was a much smaller portion than appeared on the menu. Wait staff was overall too young and not well trained. Youth at the host stand was preoccupied with texting on personal cell phone vs. performing any work related task.

I am not one to look for the negative or to let a few little things spoil a good time. My son chose Joe's Crab Shack as a place to celebrate the night we were there because he was moving to college the next day. We live in a large metroplex and had eaten at another location many times but... More

We got the king crab bucket and although it was tasty, it was obvious that the crab had been frozen. The quantity appears to have shrunk since the last time we were here. They seem to do something to their draft beers to make them really carbonated.
