I ordered garlic crab with corn on the cob and potatoes. Very small slices of garlic covered the dish but the garlic flavor was missing. The food was good just taste different in California!

It's a fun place, good food, but pay extra for hush puppies! A real fun party atmosphere, plenty of drinks, etc. Waiters dance in the isles at times...!

There were six of us, five ordered drinks and they never came and time went by and we could see our drinks sitting on the bar for a good ten minutes, caught the waiters eye and pointed to our drinks , it...

My wife and I visited this restaurant for lunch on Thursday, March 3, 2016. We arrived at 12:15 pm, and the restaurant only had about 4 tables occupied. The menu was very expensive. Featured items were $25 - $30 each. My wife wanted grilled fish, but the only meal was $19. We settled on the lunch menu. She had a... More

The staff was excellent. WE ordered their lobster special which was delicious BUT I felt a little skimped on the size of the lobster. All and all was a nice dining experience.

I ate here based on recommendations from friends who said this place was comparable to Red Lobster but cheaper. There's no comparison. I found the quality to be lacking. Don't get me wrong, the food is OK but I've had better seafood in most other seafood places.

Two lobsters, clams, spiced sausage, red skin potatoes and one ear of corn. What are we supposed to do share bites? It would not break... More

I don't frequent franchise places as a rule, but Joe's Crab Shack, I do like. I like the steampot choices, and was here 3 times recently and they were very good. The staff is hit or miss, with some good and some so so, but generally they are good and the food is good, with no surprises.

We went in for an early supper. Food was up to expectations and service was great. Would return there again if in the area.
