I enjoyed the meal but I think that I would've ordered something with less fried items in it. Drinks and service was good.

We enjoyed a nice dinner with 4 of 7 people ordering crab leg meals. I found it to be plentiful although a little more flavor or spice could make the dish outstanding! A taste of the coconut shrimp was delicious! The desserts were pricey although with good flavor including the chocolate cake and berry cobbler. May return another time while... More

Alyssa was our server . She was great. She was not overbearing, but perfectly attentive. The staff was busy cleaning and bustling about. I am writing this review because i found it quite disturbing and inappropriate that the manager of the establishment was doing personnel reviews of her staff at the front table of this restaurant.. Get an office to... More

We went here because it was a beautiful day and we could sit outside. We ordered appetizers which didn't show up until after the food was on the table. We got our food and waited to get our waiter to bring cutlery. Our waiter was covering a large section so i really think the issues are management. He was polite... More

Had the Alaskan steam pot. The crab legs, shrimp and lobster had very little flavor. The corn was tough and flavorless. The only two items with decent flavor was the sausage and the red potatoes. Based on this one experience I will not revisit.

We were visiting Corpus for a Winter Get Away. We have eaten at this Joe's before and had an okay experience. This time was a TOTALLY different thing. We went during the cold blitz that hit Texas-and the whole country really- in December... The restaurant was COLD inside, people were eating with their coats on! While the restaurant was not... More

Very good food, though somewhat expensive. We ordered three different items, and they all were very good. Service is fast and attentive.

We recently visited Joe's Crab Shack in Corpus Christi Texas. It was about 8:30 on a Thursday night. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. We were surprised since it was a little later in the evening. The fried shrimp was some of the best ever. The fish was fried crisp with a little bit of a heavy batter. The... More
