I've been to a few of these franchises in other cities, but this one had the best staff and the food was awesome! If you're in the Boise area, be sure to stop in for lunch or dinner!!

The food was awesome and service was quick! The staff were very "aloof" and did not engage with us (3 couples) much at all. Coconut shrimp, fish & chips, lobster bucket were delicious! Try the Hurricane, no wonder the limit is 2!

We had great service and the food was delicious! I love that it's right on the river because it's nice to eat out on the patio.

First visit to this chain of restaurants, waiter very helpful as to how the place works with the buckets etc. Food was very reasonably price & the portion sizes were great. The crab was tasty & my husband was sorry he hadn't ordered more. Would...More

Good food by the river, good service and on your birthday you have to ride a hobby horse around the restaurant.

If you've eaten at one Joe's Crab Shack, you seem to have eaten at them all. Not that consistency is a bad thing, but there's not much variety. Still, the food was good and the wait staff was pleasant.

Stopped for lunch. The wait was sort of long considering there were not a lot of people there on a Monday afternoon. Food was average but the view of the river was outstanding.
