“Joe's Crab Shack (860 Broad Street)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I recently visited the restaurant and was disappointed after speaking with the GM and developers about food handlers serving customers without a hair net. The exact words were " The people who prepare the food in the kitchen are instructed to ware a hat or hairnet, not servers." This is interesting after actually observing for myself this was false. I sat near the kitchen area and observed servers entering and exiting the kitchen without a hairnet. In addition, the cooks had on hats, but hair was exposed on the sides. Needless to say i rate this place poor. Luckily, food did not end up in my order. Just look before you eat.

Be well.
