“Fantastic seafood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This is a good restaurant if you are into seafood. It is also open till very late at night. Good if you need a late night meal or snack.

“Great seafood, but be prepared for the bill.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We got the original bucket for 2 and my son got the kids seafood sampler. they were all steamed very well. The snow and dungeoness crabs were very well cooked and the service was great. $110 later with drinks caused this to be a one time dining for us.

“Over Priced and under flavored”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This was my first and last time going to a Joe's Crab Shack. Not only was the price a little steep for what we ordered, but the flavor just wasn't there. Maybe it was the seasoning , maybe it was the crab, maybe it was whomever prepared our dish, but it just wasn't ...memorable. Our Server was nice and entertaining, but the place looked a bit thrown together.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Our last day at Disneyland ended here. Our waitress, Judy, made our evening so fun...she's awesome!! It's on the pricey end, but portions are good and the food is sooooo good!! Wish we had one closer to where we live! Thanks Judy!!
