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

I know should have went somewhere new to experience. This was just the average Joe's Crab Shack although it was good food it was just average seafood for a lot if money. The waiters didn't really look like they even wanted to be there. Although I will go back to Joe's Crab Shack again it's only because outs a popular... More

Good food and great service. This was a very good casual dining restaurant! We really enjoyed our dinner. I was a little hesitant to eat in a national chain but it was very good and reasonable!

Last night in town service was slow and we spoke to manager, she apologized and offered to comp meal. We thanked her but wouldn't let her comp meal, told... More
