“Very expensive and alright food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I got a seafood platter and 2 beers, but was shocked when I saw the bill. Way to high for what i got. What bothered me most and why i would never go back to this Joe's is the fact the busboy dropped a rag on the floor while dancing to the music they play and just picked it up and continued wiping off tables with it. When I say he dropped it, i mean it was a wet rag that sat on the floor for like 2 minutes and just picked up. A wet rag that just picked up every piece of dirt on the ground.

“Underwhelming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

For a restaurant that touts crab as its specialty, the crab is not fresh, it's been frozen! While the portions are generous, the quality is not there. I was going to order the king crab legs, but was steered away from them by our waitress to the less expensive queen crab legs. These were abundant but very skinny with little meat. I wonder what was wrong with the king crab legs!! The meal came with an ear of corn and a couple of potatoes. The corn was delicious. All in all, this is a chain restaurant with average food and in my opinion, there are better seafood restaurants.
