We have been to this location in Corpus several times. We always have an awesome time here! The restaurant sits over the water, and has an amazing balcony right over the water! You can sit and watch boats go by or watch seagulls fish in the gulf. The waitstaff is laid back and the food was pretty good.

The view is great. The food is ok my crab cakes were warm not hot when they arrive. The steam pot was also not hot and seemed a little under filled. Had to wait awhile for drink refills as our waitress was having her hair braided by one of the hostesses. Won't be returning to this location.

We always visit Corpus Christi every summer and Joe's Crab Shack never disappoints. We normally eat inside but on Saturday decided to eat outside on the deck. It was extremely windy, BUT the view as the sun was setting was beautiful as always. I had the Fish and jumbo shrimp platter the Shrimp were SOOOO delicious. Fish was alittle dry.... More

I have been there three times and each time I tried different food. The servers are efficient and mostly friendly. The view is fantastic, but I have found the food to be ok, nothing great. Twice they were out of certain dished that we wanted. With Joe's Crab Shack I think you get the good and bad of chain restaurants.

Conveniently located across from the Omni. Appetizer of crab dip was delicious as was the fish and shrimp. The shrimp was big as were the portions of fish. I was allowed a substitution of stuffed baked potato instead of fries. The only drawback was the screaming kids. Not directly the fault of the restaurant but they should consider separate dining...

Ate lunch with our adult kids. Food was okay but not spectacular. Didn't know we could sit upstairs where view was better until we had already ordered. Wait staff was nice and answered all our questions. Need more healthy choices. Menu was limited. Not that many choices.

Kind of noisy, but the crab boil was great. The corn was tasty . There is a lot of noise with the music blaring but the food is good. The outside dining is excellent overlooking the bay. Inside, if you can get a good table looking at the ocean water is even better. We also ordered fried catfish and it... More
