Great place, great food, and even some really cold drinks. Waiter was one of the best I've had in a long time at any restaurant. Food was served in timely manner. Would highly recommend.

Great service, beautiful view of the lake and the food was really good! The kids loved the steam pot and the novelty of cracking their own lobster and crab legs.

Crab buckets had no clusters...small single overlooked crab legs. The meat was stringy and wouldn't come out of the shell. Friendly server...slow kitchen. Overall, not a great experience for $160.00.... It was my fav place....not now.

Wife raised in East in lobster land. So that is what she had. Over cooked, but it is Missouri. I had calamari and it was good and plenty. Good view of lake. Waiter very friendly. Lunch, under 10 tables filled.

Quickly served, but not rushed. Food was very good! The coconut shrimp were good and the fish and chips were very good. The key lime pie was a nice way to finish up.

My family has been to a few Joe's Crab Shacks and always enjoyed the food. The service was very good here but the food was just ok. The crab legs were over cooked.

We went on a Saturday evening. Had a modest wait of 20 minutes. That was ok. Was sooo loud in there you couldn't even talk without yelling. Was being seated to a dirty table. They took us to another table for seating. It was dirty also. Food took about an hour. Ordered a bucket of crab legs. The meat wouldn't... More

Along with the family we visited this restaurant for lunch. It was moderately crowded but not too bad. My burger was bleeding and I could not eat it. Others got very small portions of food and were not satisfied.
