I am rating this based on the service at this establishment. I've never had an issue with a Joe's crab shack. My friend & I did not feel very welcomed by staff. Staff were not attentive. My friend also brought the New Orleans pot. I think the cook went CRAZY with the creole or whatever spices they use because our... More

Did not receive silverware with food. Food took a long time to get and then I had to go to the hostess to ask for silverware. Ordered an appetizer and never received it. Then she offered to bring it free and came back and said the back did not receive the ticket.

I got the shrimp alfredo pasta, it was tasty! Their menu seemed limited don't know if this is normal or because of a NFL game day.

When in the mood for seafood, we love to eat at Joe's Crab Shack. Fun atmosphere and GREAT food. I love the Coconut Shrimp and it is my favorite meal to have there. This location gets really busy on baseball game days and weekends, but during the weekdays you can enjoy a much more relaxed and less busy atmosphere. The... More

Boy did I come on the right night, no baseball or other big events in the area so seating was abundant and the servers and staff had time to chat a little. This location does get busy but I will tell you what, my dinners are always perfect, hot and tasty. The location is perfect for my customer base and... More

My husband and I went to celebrate our Anniversary. I had the Crab Leg and Lobster steam pot and it was delicious. For $30 it was worth it. The Lobster was a good size and I got plenty of crab legs. My husband said his Shrimp pasta was also very good. Love this place.
