Terrible fried food. All the items were subpar. Will never go back. Service and environment were ok. But the food itself was just horrible.

I'm from the West Coast, so my expectations weren't particularly high for a seafood restaurant so far away from the ocean, but I found myself pleasantly surprised! The Crab Cake Sandwich was super tasty, as were the coconut shrimp (which my mom had), and we shared a delicious "Sea Turtle Sundae" for dessert. We ended up eating here twice (as... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant byt were not very impressed. Staff were friendly but we found the seafood bland, watery without much taste. The seafood bucket was very disappointing with average quality seafood and high prices. We will not return.

Ate here with my son after the car show. Being in Utah it is nothing like eating at ones in the south with the wrap around porch and sand play ground for the kids. Food was really good. Staff was excellent and to my surprise this is a no tip restaurant. I would rather pay a little more for the... More

Ya know, not a top notch sea food restaurant but really good all the same. Kids love the desserts and drink options and we love the steam puts. Be were the arctic bay is spice and to us tastes similar to Cajun seasoning which we didn't like. No spices for us. So just watch it. Lots of fried stuff for... More

My friend and I decided to come here after attending an expo at the South Towne Expo Center. For a Saturday afternoon it was dead. We were seated promptly and were perusing the menu. The table seated behind us must have been friends of one of the waitresses because the waitress stood and chatted with them for some time. As... More

I had the seaside platter, scallops, fish. Shrimp. It was really good. My friend had the east coast platter which had a stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon that was great. Only thing that went wrong, our calamari appetizer was forgotten. It was brought right after our meal was set down by the manager who apologized and told us there would... More

This was a special occasion family outing for us. (2 adults- 2 kids). Our waiter Cinch yes that's his name. Is a personality all his own. However he is the perfect balance between chatty and professional. Lets start off fro the beginning: 1. We walked in and were seated. We ordered our drinks and they were brought out very promptly....

We came here as a Mothers Day choice. Our waitress, Bailee, was helpful, but was lacking in personality. After our meal was delivered, it was quite a long time before Bailee came back to check on our status. We ordered one of the buckets and the Steak and Shrimp plate. The steak wad to be medium, but it came out... More

I went for an early dinner at Joe’s Crab Shack with my wife, step-daughter, and her boyfriend on Friday, April 17, 2015. For those who have not been to Joe’s: They set the table with some of the usual things, like salt and pepper shakers (in pint bottles), but they also include a roll of brown paper towels and a...
