The food was ok. We got the crab pots and not to be near an ocean I thought mine was good. My husband got the Alaskan pot and he was not satisfied with his. The shrimp still had some veins and his crab just had a weird taste to it. The service was not outstanding to be in a high... More

My wife was craving shrimp so we ate at Joe's crab shack. She had shrimp and fish and I had the East Coast platter. The food came in a timely manner and was hot and good. Our waitress was named Jo and she was a real sweetheart. If you are looking for seafood for a reasonable price, try Joe's Crab... More

Joes is a fun and exciting place to eat! The food is pretty good too! They offer all kinds of sea food but also a few other items for throes who don't like seafood!

First night in the area during our honeymoon. Sat at the bar because it was available right away - best decision ever. Melinda was wonderful, answered all of our questions and made great suggestions. The crab was wonderful and I was able to watch a baseball game during dinner! I begged to go back the rest of the week!!

Great food. Waitress provided some good insight on the "ragin kajen" seasoning for the crab basket. Fantastic! Will be back soon.

The service was great and the coconut shrimp delicious. The hush puppies were crispy and well seasoned. And they do ribeye steak well too! Would definitely recommend Joe's Crab Shack.

This was our first visit to a Joe's Crab Shack. Was not disappointed. The food was very good and comparable in price to other seafood places in which we have dined.

We chose to eat in the bar and a great choice as the bartender was great.....very attentive. Wife had a fish plate that was very good. I had a bucket with lobster, shrimp, and mussels......it was excellent. Had the hot Cajun seasoning and it was perfect. Being from Louisiana, I don't like bland food especially seafood and they got it... More

Great place to eat......If crab legs are what you are craving these are good but you don't get enough for the price ! Food was good and I will go again....service is pretty slow though.....If your starved or in a hurry then go elsewhere !
