We made the reservation weeks before we went , we were seated late. Acoustics are horrible, it's very loud. We were hoping for a quieter dinner and would be able to converse with one another. The stone crabs were delicious.

The menu contained enough options to provide everyone with a good number of choices. The ambiance was nice, but we did feel a bit crowded at our table. We enjoyed the appetizers and more so the main course. We each had the same entrée which was the broiled seafood dinner consisting of a lobster tail, shrimp and scallops. It was... More

I went in there to eat the Alaskan king crab, it was great, and the best part is that you don´t even have to crack it yourself, which takes a lot of effort and if you are not an expert, it can take long.

The Alaskan Crab-on ice- is a must !! The formal ambiance with the playful attitude of Joe's personnel renders a wonderful experience. A fact clear in Joe's popularity in spite of fierce competition.

With a reservation for 9pm on Saturday night we were seated relatively promptly. While the food was good both of us felt that it wasn't great. My main arrived ten minutes before my lady's. It seems the kitchen didn't get our order right. Our waiter was just OK while the waiter at the table beside us was exceptional explaining all... More

The white linen, slightly crowded, pretty noisy restaurant simply has excellent food and great service. It is not a foodie restaurant, and not a romantic place, but it delivers in every way and is a perfect place to go with friends or for a business dinner if you want crab, or want to eat perfectly prepared seafood.

My husband and I have eaten at this great restaurant many times as part of a group in a private room-wonderful experiences with fabulous choices and excellent service. When we ate in the general dining room on our own, it was a very different feel. The noise in the restaurant made it very difficult to converse.
