Me and wife went to joe's and it was the best seafood I've ever eaten. The steam pots are wow. You have to have the lobster dip,I ordered a second order. Make it a must to eat at joe's crab shack.

We waited about 45 minutes for an average meal. Food was decent and the service was good but the place was so busy, loud and crowded it was impossible to just relax and enjoy the meal. We won't be coming back.
