“Go to a different Joe's!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

First I will say that Joes is my favorite restaurant and Joes always puts a smile on my face. BUT, the service here was aweful. We had a party of 9 and decided to sit outside by the playground so the kids could play. Drinks finally started coming out two by two. Took 15 minutes to get drinks. Two sodas were flat and had to beg for water. That meant it took 30 minutes to order. Tomato bisque (usually great) was bad. Food came out and one person's order was missing. They brought it about 10 minutes later (meaning they never put it in). Waitress forgot about us outside I guess. Once all the food came out, most of it was cold because we were waiting for the missing order. Manager did ask how everything was and gave us a few drinks for the kids and didn't charge us for desserts which was the least they can do. Go to the location on International drive, it's worth the extra time. Crabs were however good as always at Joes.

“Slow Service, Food Below Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We went to Joe's Crab Shack by the Orlando Int Airport and were disappointed. They did not have some Crab and Lobster dishes available, which to me seems odd for a seafood restaurant. We have always liked Joe's, but after this visit, will look elsewhere for family seafood fare. The service was slow, although he was very apologetic. We would not return to this place in Orlando.
