We know this chain well and enjoy their food and when it is busy, their entertainment by the wait staff is great. It is a fun place to go. We were 3 and had 2 coconut shrimp and one crab bucket entrees. Everything was very good - up to the standard that we expect. We would go back easily when... More

My family and I were staying at the hotel within walking distance to Joe's. So, we walked over for drinks. The bartender made us feel so very welcomed that we went back the next night. Thank you, Arthur for putting up with all of us.

Have eaten here before. Place always appears clean, other patrons always seem to be having fun. Food is good. Our waiter last night was very nice and friendly.

This is a typical Joe's location though I'll say the hardest part was finding the entrance to the parking lot. There are only entrances on the main road, the road that goes over to Olive Garden circles Joe's but has no entrances. The food was good, service was fast.

Worth five stars but no fresh oysters. Bummer as that is why I stopped. Going back again this week. Service was Xcellent, probably because the place was nearly empty.

Stopped in with my daughter for a quick appetizer and beverage from teh bar. It was a Thursday - around 3:30. We walked in there was one table of 2 in the bar and two tables in the dining area. No wait staff or bartender to be seen. I'd say it was a good 5 minutes before we saw anyone.... More

Me and a coworker went there on May 19th and everything went well. The host actually became our server due to some sort of things being busy Tre was a great host.

We went to Joe's Crab Shack on a Sunday evening. When we arrived the restaurant was mostly empty--so unusually busy is not an excuse. We were seated and drink orders were taken and arrived. Then we ordered dinner. And waited. And waited. And waited. No updates from the waiter, no reasons, no excuses, just nothing. Finally, we snagged a waitress... More
