Ok, so it's a chain but the view of Redondo harbor was unmatched. We wife had the fish and chips and I had a steamed crab pot. Both were delicious and well worth the price paid. Service was excellent. We wanted a place where we could enjoy the water while eating and THIS PLACE WAS IT!

Enjoyed the location on the beach, but the sea food was very poor quality and will not be returning. The staff was young and not well trained, though they were trying.

I like the location of this restaurant right next to the pier on the harbor. It offers an outside dining area on the ocean which is very pleasant. However I am not a huge fan of Joes Crab Shack as I don't really care for the menu or service. And this seems to be not just locally but in other... More

We stopped in at Joe's for a nice seafood dinner right on the bay shore - great sunset views of the harbor, Palos Verdes and the Pacific. Wanted to sit on the patio so grabbed some drafts at the bar first. Neat happy crowd of families, couples and friends having fun. We had a combo of crab basket, coconut shrimp... More

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. I would've given this location 5 circles, but the service was a little slow AND you have to pay $4 for... More

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

Thank frameworks
