This was the 3rd time we went there and we loved it every time! Great food, great atmosphere, Great service. Surprised to see such a low rating on trip advisor. It is one of the best restaurants in the area. Great crab legs, great crab stuffed Shrimp, great pina colada and jar margarita. Overall great experience!

I have been to this restaurant before and the service was great, and the food was great. This time it was not good. Our server needed hearing aids(for a young guy), We had to repeat everything to him 2-3 times. He brought our niece the wrong order. She couldn't stay, so she had to get it to go. She called... More

Enjoyed the food, the service, and the prices. I have been to Joe's Crab Shack several times and have always had a good time and felt like the prices were reasonable. I've been to the restaurant in Jordan Landings but didn't like it as much as Jordan Commons (The original near me anyway), Jordan Commons seems to have more consistency... More

Food was good. Our service was wonderful! I felt sorry for our server. She was the hostess, waitress and bartender and did it all with grace. I wish I could remember her name.

Food was fine but a little bit pricy, I liked the snow crab the best out of the 3 they offered, the wife enjoyed her lobster we spent around 100 dollars for 2 people including tip.

My 1st lobster experience was horrible! It was undercooked along with the corn on the cob. We have been excited about eating there & sorry we did. Guess you learn from your mistakes & throwing $70.00 down the toilet.

Our family, all 10 of us, decided to go to Joe's for lunch this past Sunday after attending the Speed Skating trails. BAD DECISION! The menu was fairly good and we ordered a lot of different items. The service was very slow since there were only a handful of people there besides us. The food was way over priced and... More

Friendly wait staff. Shared duties. Ordered lobster spaghetti and crab nachos. Had 3 nacho chips when entree arrived. Food good but I've been dieting for months and portions are much bigger than I imagined. I hope it reheats well because not used to spending $55 for 2 person dinner.

Honestly my expectations were not high for the food at Joe's; however, even with my low expectations, I was sorely disappointed. My wife's seafood bucket was bland with little flavor. I ordered the crab hamburger, which was one their "favorites", but was just awful. Suffice to say, we won't be returning.

Have been to many of these restaurants and this one was not upto their standards. Tried to order a simple cocktail and sent it back twice and the waitress said "they looked it up"....it was a vodka gimlet---food mediocre, service was average. Lots of apologies from the waitress... The crab legs were smaller than any I have had at any... More
