My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience here! We have no complaints! The nachos were AMAZING! We also go the crab cake sandwich! It was phenomenal, as well! And then we splurged and got the watermelon sangria. If you like watermelon, you would LOVE this! You cannot even taste the alcohol! No complaints here!

All you can eat crab legs is very tempting. While over all was good there were a few that were quiet rubbery and not as easy to peel or get out of the shell. The waitress we had was pretty great and just swapped them out. The drinks and cocktails were great as well. Wednesday nights rock going to Joes

A friend and I went in for lunch. The wait staff was very upbeat and knowledgeable . We both had the East Coast Platter. The crab cakes was one of the best I have ever had. The turtle sundae was excellent. The lunch menu is somewhat limited. Very much enjoyed our visit. Highly recommend.

Friendly and lively staff. I have had the lobster bucket, the shrimp bucket, the craw dad bucket, and the all you can eat crab. I think the crab is the best item on the menu.

Always enjoy eating at Joe's Crab Shack, and this was no exception. The food was amazing, great service. The price is just right for some cajun broil. So yummy!
