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.

We stopped here for some seafood. The mushroom appetizer we ordered was so gooey, I could hardly eat it. My crunchy shrimp was okay, but the plate was pretty skimpy for the price. My daughter ordered one of the seafood pots. She had no complaints. The drinks are good here. My hurricane, although it was good, had way too much... More

Joe's is one of our go-to restaurants and we eat there when we're in the mood for good seafood. It's loud and kitschy, but the food is reliably good. My daughter and I like to get a combo platter and share, both because neither of us can finish off the huge portions and because the platters give us a variety... More

I would have given the restaurant a 1 or 0 if it had not been for the jalapeno poppers with cream cheese. They were actually good. My wife had been to a Joe's Crab Shack quite a few years ago and said the food was terrible. I should have heeded her warning. We went there for my birthday. I ordered... More

We had a bucket for 2 which was filling & time consuming(crab legs)! Love this food though you also pay for the fun staff & seafaring décor!

The fisherman platter was very tasty. I love seafood so for me this was no brainer. The service was average. I liked the atmosphere and the food was delicious. There was a delay or wait for the food but other than that--good experience.
