“Great location, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

My husband and I frequent Joe's Crab Shack often, the food is delicious and its just a short walk to the beach. The servers even get together and entertain the crowd often throughout the evening. If you love seafood, Joe's Crab Shack is a must try!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

First time eating at a Joes. Good was good and brought to the table hot, and tasted fresh. A little pricey at $68 for a lunch but that was 2 meals and 2 appetizers, next time we'll get an appetizer an a meal and share.

“In spite of the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

I visited this restaurant yesterday after making a 630 reservation for a party of 7 adults and 3 children. We waited and waited and waited.What really made me upset was how unapologetic the seaters were. They kept saying you will be next when the next big party get up. Over to the left in the "garage" area were several vacant benches that we were told were reserved for a private party. Even after the private party arrived there were seats. We were finally seated at 720. The manager came around and apologized for the wait and offered us free appetizers or desert. We ordered a variety of items for dinner and they all proved to be excellent! The items that were Cajun seasoned were awesome (we like heat). The atmosphere was cool with the staff found dance routines. So though we waited forever the food was worth it. Next time we will wait until about 8 the line was drastically smaller. Thank you to the manager for acknowledging us waiting so long in spite of having a reservation. The seaters (the tall lady and the blonde girl) need a lil more training in customer service.

“It's a Joe's- crab pots and that's about it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Joe's on the beach in Jacksonville Beach Florida has a great location, good crab pots, but otherwise mediocre service and weak bar drinks.

Is worth going to sit on the balcony and watch the ocean, but don't expect much else.

“The Experience of Joe's Crab Shack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

On a recent trip to Jacksonville Beach I ate at Joe's Crab Shack. The food was fine, the service was fine, and the overall dining experience was good. It was a fun evening out and a very lively dining atmosphere.
