Good food if you like seafood. Not many options for non seafood eaters... Prices are kinda high in my opinion

Great crabs. They are a little smaller than you would find at Red Lobster, but very tasty just the same.

service was great , happy and friendly hostess and waiters but the seafood was not what I was used to , I was visiting from Houston and we're spoiled by the great seafood in this area , it was kind of bland

Not all Joe's are created equal. We ate at the one in Louisville and the experience bad but they gave me a $50.00 gift card. We used it at this one and were surprised it was very clean the service was good and the food was very good. Our Louisville meal was wasn't chewable. I would definitely return to this... More

We stopped at Joe's on vacation. I've always seen the commercials but haven't been in an area that had one. But we found one in October . It was awesome. Some of the best seafood I've ever had. The atmosphere was fun and the service was fantastic.

Food was excellent staff was excellent but the seating setup was lacking. Told 10 minutes and 30 minutes later was finally seated. Food and server made up for the wait though.

Back again for our annual reunion and Joe's Crab Shack was a popular place for years past. We had a variety of items, crab legs, crab cakes, fried shrimp, fish & chips and lots of laughs. Amanda took good care of us and made sure we all had full glasses and extra sauce. Thanks for Amanda and Joe's Crab Shack... More
