Good was good.

Steak was perfect. Good job to kitchen, many places can't get medium rare correct, but this place can. Service wasn't real tight and beer selection was poor.

Very good seafood no matter where you go or what you like. They will go out of there way to make sure you like what you get. If you have been there you know and if you have not been there then you REALLY NEED to eat there, you'll be hooked.

I visited the This Joes on a Monday night and the place was dead. We had a group of 5 adults for my mother in laws birthday. The service was good but the food was terrible. The appetizer was supposed to be jalapeno crab balls, tasted like imitation crab served on top of limp fries. My wife’s entrée was 5-6... More

The food was disgusting. Perhaps I am spoiled with my seafood generally being fresh but this could hardly be called food.

Had a birthday dinner for my wife, she worked a close but we still wanted to do something nice. We thought we were settling on Joe's but little did we know they would make it special even for our party of four. We got in at about 9pm and the restaurant was almost empty. We were greeted At the door... More

What a disappointment! The crab is tiny, and dry. They try to hide that by smoothering it in seasonings. The corn is over cooked! Nothing else tasted good either. This place is terrible!!!

Decided to stop at Joe's Crab Shack during the lunch hour thinking the prices would be less expensive. WRONG!! One menu, same prices lunch or dinner. Lots of choices. The food was good, order was delivered fairly promptly, large portions. We each ordered a "crab bucket"; my husband had a lemonade and I had water. Total bill was $75.00! A... More

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...
