Touristy with nice view. Food is not good. If you are looking for quality seafood go elsewhere. The only good part of this restaurant is the location and view. It sure would be nice to have something else in the spot.

Dinners were good with lots of selections. The crab boils and drinks were a bit pricey but the outside deck was great with the picnic tables and even umbrellas for the heat. The fun part was the dancing waiters/waitresses and fun sayings on the bibs the waitress ties on you. This was a very good restaurant choice.

This place is just an over rated tourist rip off. It might have a nice location on the beach, but the food (frozen) is mediocre at best. Look elsewhere.

The atmosphere in the place is great, and that's what we came for. Of course we'd seen the commercials of the buckets of food, and we ordered our share, knowing they couldn't possibly be that chock-full, but we didn't care about that. the food was good, and the dancing around the tables was fun, and the touristy tees were the cherry on top. We'll be back this weekend when I have to come back to Jax.

My family visited Joes Crab Shack in Jacksonville Beach Fl over Labor day weekend. We decided to go to this establishment and visit with some other family members that live close by. While parking in the area is understandably tight, Joe's does offer free parking to their patrons, except on this weekend. In order to park in the lot, we had to "donate" $10 in exchange for a free Steam bucket, a $26 value, that could not be used that day or even the month of September!! This wouldn't have been too bad except we do not live in the area & there is not a Joe's near where we live. If it weren't for the fact that we were meeting people there, I would have left. The food in the restaurant was average at best, the service I must say was the highlight. Our server Brandon did the best that he could to make our visit a little better.
