The view at Joe's Crab Shack is amazing -- out on the pier. The staff was somewhat attentive, which was a bit irritating considering we were the only ones in the restaurant. We did get some good beer suggestions. We had the fish and chips, which was pretty good. The prices were high for what we had.

Hate to say it but every time I go here I promise myself to never go back. The view is awesome, the food is usually okay but the price is too high.

We decided on Joe's because of the proximity from our hotel. The area is a bit sketchy. Restaurant is quite dirty and out dated. We were asked to go into the bar because they could not seat us for a half hour. I wish we had the sense to leave then. The bar staff were nice and the margarita was... More

First and last visit to a Joe's Crabshack. It was a quiet Wednesday night in a nearly deserted restaurant with uncleared tables and disinterested staff. The crab we had was really average.

Love this place. Table upstairs overlooking the Corpus Christi Bay. The second floor windows wrap around where every seat has a view. You can also sit outside on the balcony overlooking the bay. The food is great! Prices are good for seafood also.

We went to Joe's on the bay, planning to sit outside on a beautiful day. Surprisingly, they have very little outside seating, and it was all full. I guess the idea is that it is a shack, even though you are paying a good amount for crab. We had the pail with 3 kinds of crab so we could taste... More

Joe's is just another chain you don't need to visit while you're visiting the Bay Area. Dine more on the finer local good eats than here unless you're into the usual fish and chips and maybe an "authentic" feel of crab cakes as you're dining by the sea. The food and the atmosphere are mediocre but tourists love it because... More

If it hadnt been for the great waiter we had, it would not have even gotten one star. The food was horrible and the whole restaurant was dirty. The restrooms were too disgusting to describe. We went there on a Sunday, guess they hadnt cleaned from the party the night before. I think they spent more time trying to get... More

The restaurant has typical Joe's food with the typical wait. They have a view of the water and even in spring, it can be chilly if you choose to dine outside. Don't let the fact that it's Texas fool you. Wind on the water can be cool, especially at night. Ask your local hotel for a coupon. Most hotels have... More
