Great Family sea food

Not a high end restaurant by any means. So yes, you can complain about the quality and taste. Is it as good as even a Red Lobster, no I don't think so; however, the prices are a little less and you get a little more I think. It seems to me that Red Lobster may have more specials and promotions... read more

This review concerns the Joes Crab Shack in West Jordan only. Arrived two days before Christmas at lunch time. There were perhaps 5 diners. In other words DEAD for a Joes. Sat at bar and had some appetizers and a beer for lunch while waiting for my wife to shop across the street. At a little over an hour I... More

I went on a Wednesday night when they offer an "all-you-can-eat" crab leg special special for $29 so that is what I ordered. You can order different flavors and the waitress recommended a couple that I tried. In addition to the plain steamed I had the garlic and a new oriental ginger. I liked all three about equally well and... More

I have been to this restaurant twice. The first time was with my wife and when I asked the waitress about the lunch special she did a great job telling us what it was. When the meal came it wasn't what was described, I discussed it with the manager and she had gave us the dinner version not the lunch... More

This is a very clean nice restaurant. It is a little overpriced, but the food was delicious. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. If In the area I would return, I always enjoy a Joes when I am in the area with one and this one was not an exception.

The service was great. We had a group of 10 people and our waitress was able to take care of us all with no problem. I have had crab legs once before, and I decided to try the Endless Summer with Pacific Dungeness crab, shrimp with BBQ dry rub, with fries, johnny cakes, and a macaroni salad. It was a... More

Joe's Crab Shack is a good place to go with family or friends. The food is good and for being Utah they have Hush Puppies, which is unheard of here. They service was good. They were very accommodating with my over 90 parent. We'll go back again:)

This use to be our go to place for seafood. This place has gone backwards so fast and the only thing I can think is poor management and training. We showed up around 8 expecting somewhat of a waiting time. We walked through the door and our name was taken down by the "hostess" and she told us that our... More

My wife and I used to eat here quite often. We stopped back in and had an okay visit. As mentioned by another review the "party" atmosphere isn't the same as the past. The food was good and plentiful which isn't usually the case at a seafood place. My wife and I both left full and felt it was a... More
