Great meal at the Shack

Great meal at the Shack. The Salmon was delicious. Call for reservations. It gets packed. Great view of the Gulf. Right in the Marina zone.

First of all this is such a nice area u expect there'd b better places to eat. Since we stepped in we noticed , it's a run down place. When we entered the elevator to go to second floor where lunch was served, I had to hold my breath: smelled moldy, humid, Awful!! We started w the day soup which... More

We were staying at the Holiday Inn right across the street from this location and since it was pouring down rain, we decided not to chance the bad weather and stay in close..the food was the worst..nearly every table in the place was dirty (4:30 in the afternoon??), the place only had four tables eating and we asked for a...

We had a great lunch here in the harbor with beautiful views of the gulf harbor. The fare at Joe's is always pretty consistent. We had the classic steampot which was great. Service was decent but not outstanding.

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

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 minutes of our arrival to discuss the many... 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.

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
