Great food! Awesome waitstaff! Outstanding management!

Contrary to the other recent reviews, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. We took a group of 14, mostly high school students, for dinner at Joe's. To add to the chaos, one student, who happens to be my son, had multiple, severe food allergies. The manager, Bob, was at our table within... read more

First time to a Joe's Crab Shack and we picked a great one. This restaurant is located right on the bay and it was great to sit and watch the boats as we were eating a great meal. They have lots of different choices even for non fish people. They have good selections of unbreaded and unfried items for people... More

Within a short distance of our hotel we chose Joe's over other noted seafood establishments. We were seated and ignored for quite sometime before anyone of the 6-8 servers that congregated in the waitress area came over to provide service. Our waitress was polite and took our drink order- the entree's. Once the food was brought out each of our... More

Took way to long to get waited on. Ordered crab pot that has been on menu since crab shack opened..came to table without shrimp or sausage. Portions smaller than normal. Shrimp were very small. Waitress was great and tried to fix everything. Manager was worthless. Landry's is right across the street...much better service and food.

I have been waiting for 13 days to go to Joe's Crab Shack; I celebrate at Joe's every year and have ever since they opened the one in Dallas. We spent our spring break in the coastal are of Texas. Went to Joe's on Shoreline dr. Bartender was so busy we waited 10 minutes for him to notice us. Got... More

We went at 5:45 and did not wait long to be seated. The staff was not real welcoming but did well once we were seated. Our Mahi Mahi was delicious as well as the broccoli and smashed potatoes. The corn on the cob was tough but tasty. We had the apple crisp with cinnamon ice cream and it was an... More

Wondered down to the waterfront to show the kids the boats and waterfront. Stopped at Joe's Crab Shack. It was a very nice place especially for dessert for the grandkids. The food was very good as well. The grandkids really enjoyed the unusual desserts.

Our first night we went to dinner here and had poor service from our waitress and the night manager. My boyfriend kept waving his empty beer bottle in the air hoping to catch anyones attention before going himself to the bar. We tried it again two nights later and the food was warm when it came out.

The food is good and reasonably priced, many many different entries. They have a happy hour and drink specials. We ate inside on the upper level and had a great view of the bay. ( Elevator to second level). There is a large bar and several table's / booths. We were there in Jan and it was not busy, but... More

Ok... I've been here twice! First experience was horrible, so I gave it a second chance and was sadly disappointed. I MUST say, the view is awesome! We sat outside and were right on the water! We could see boats and ever got a glance of a few dolphins beyond the rocks! The kids LOVED it! The service was horrible...... More
