This place is not bad if you are looking for quick seafood near by. There are a lot of other places I would pick first. Prices are reasonable.

I went to Joe's with a lg. group of people. The service was good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Everyone said their selection was very good. A few thought the prices were a little high.

Terri was my server, she made me feel like I wasn't dining alone. She brightened my day and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The staff as a whole is awesome!

I've been to several Crab Shack franchises around the US...mostly because locals wanted to go there for a quick in and out and some seafood. They were not awful but they are not seafood heaven. Kids and older adults may love the lively atmosphere and the menu selections. If you're looking for anything above frozen seafood and fried options look... More

I stopped in for an early dinner on a week night. The restaurant was not busy but service was slow. The Coconut Shrimp was adequate but nothing special, nor were the sides. Perhaps I just went on a bad night, but I was not impressed with the staff or the food for the price. I have not been back even... More

Cross another favorite off my list of places to dine. Gluten free menu/options was a piece of paper with several items crossed off. I thought of taking a picture of the floor under our table but it was beyond gross, couldn't look at it. Menu has been downsized to a couple of pages (mine was torn up) missing some of... More

The food is really good as always. Waitress was really nice and friendly. We had two little kids with us and she was really good with them.

Visited a few weeks ago and disappointed at the uncleanliness overall. I always judge a restaurant by how clean the bathroom is, and this bathroom smelled bad and wasn't very clean. I ordered a salad with vinegar and oil and the bottles were extremely dirty, had leftover food on them and was disgusting. The table was sticky and yucky! When... More

Had the poor boy shrimp sandwich. More food than you can eat. Also had the crab nachos. Amazing. Worth trying. Sandwich a little greasy. But good

We used come here a lot and stopped for some unknown reason. The staff is really good , the service is very good. Love sitting on the deck and it's very relaxed. The food is as good as I remember and I'm gonna start adding them to the list of good places we return to when we go out.
