We just had drinks & an appetizer here but both things were pretty good. I had a really good Bloody Mary! We sat outside so we could watch people paddle board & almost fall in the water trying to sail. Pretty entertaining.

The food was really good as it has been with other Joe's Crab Shacks that we've visited in other parts of the USA. We sat at one of the outside tables that overlooked the water, that was really neat.

We were brought here by a family friend. And it was really good. She ordered cajun for me and my cuz..and it was yummy. Enjoyed cracking those crabs. Would definitely come back and recommend.

We had dinner outside overlooking the ocean view, very nice. Food was good and the staff was friendly. You can also take nice stroll next to the crash wall.

Chaotic, fun, noisy environment. Good food. Amazing frozen drinks. Young, friendly service (thank you KENNY!) Nice views if you can get near a window or on the patio. Def worth a visit. Wear a bib - it's what all the cool kids are doing

Crab was delicious! The Cajun flavor was the best! My husband and I shared a bucket and it was very filling! And the cocktails were yummy!

If you like serve yourself, loud music, chaos dining, you will like this place. A bit too much for us, but then we are not 21 any longer.

It is a crowded place. The Food is good but a Little overpriced. The female and Male Waiters were very helpful. The menue is really BIG.

not sure about the slightly cheesy decor but people were friendly, service was fast and the food was excellent. We had a basket of shrimp - super fresh - with shells on, then a whole Dungeoness crab with potatoes and corn - and some crab cakes with fries and coleslaw - all tasty. Bill was a little high I thought... More
