Family lunch with grandkids

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

My friend wanted fish and this place sure had it. Im not a fish guy but got the steak which was one of the best Ive ever eaten. The location incredible right on the water. The price was a little high for me but again given location and incredible taste I felt I got my monies worth

The view is excellent, the food is good, price is fair and our family members usually choose to go here to celebrate birthdays. On nice days, we sit outside. Windy days inside. Plan to spend almost 2 hours here if you have a large party. Eat upstairs (has elevator and stairs). Wait staff are friendly, but will take a break... More

We went to dinner at Joe's in the evening. It was crowded but our host got us in a booth no waiting. Our waiter was friendly and nice. My husband and I shared the seafood platter it had shrimp, 2 batter dipped fish and 4 fried scallops. It was excellent. I ordered a category 5 hurricane drink huge and delicious.... More

We had a late lunch there. It is a chain restaurant but the food was good. The view was great. We did eat inside because it was windy, but it does have outdoor seating. We sat upstairs so had a nice view of the water and the Gulf Coast. The service was good. The margaritas were great. We will go... More

We enjoy coming here for the view. We enjoy watching the ships and boats while we wait for our food. This place is very similar to other Joe's crab shacks and has been a consistent experience.

Regular commercial grade food, nothing fancy. If you've been to one you've been to all of them. Didn't seem like you get too much food even out of the buckets and they are wayyyyyyyy over price to be on the water!
