This will be our 7 time to Joes Crab Shack in Anaheim and it never disappoints us! Good food, good service and great ambiance. You come to Joes for the "experience" as much as the food.

Atmosphere was great! Food was pretty awesome and the pina colada served in a hollowed out pineapple was a hit with the ladies 😍 Kids had a blast and loved the takeaway cup

It's probably not smart to order chicken at a seafood restaurant and I paid the price. The chicken sandwich was dry and tasteless. The specialty drink was expensive and not good. On the plus side our server was delightful. Next time I'll pick the Outback which is right next door.

I loved my first experience at Joe's. I was craving seafood so definitely went to the right place. Waiters every hour go to the middle of the restaurant and start to dance. They had a lot of cocktails but wine drinkers like me struggled to get the waitress to find the price of a bottle of wine. I would appreciate... More

Went with family group of 9 with a 1 hr wait but well worth it. Staff agreed to seat kids separately and get them served asap whilst we enjoyed some large margaritas followed by massive delicious crabs, lobster and mussels. Without doubt one of my favourite seafood experiences - not fine dining but a long shot but great value, fun... More

Professional, friendly, polite and patient. Good choice of menu. Value for money. Music a bit too loud though. Salmon was so so only. A bit overdone.

Revisited Joe's Crab Shack since we enjoyed ourselves the last time we came to Disneyland. Food was very good (and plentiful); we had a shrimp sampler and crab pot. The food was reasonably priced and the service very good. We would recommend going out for some crab if you are in the area

We went here for Christmas Eve dinner and it did not disappoint! Prices are reasonable, servings are huge! There was a photographer onsite and it helped to make the dinner memorable.

As usual, went there for the steaming pot of crabs and other seafood. They didn't disappoint! Had a mason jar of bloody mary with my pot. Messy with all that crab to crack and eat, but oh so wonderful!
