Haven't been to a Joe's in sometime--and was a little taken aback at the price. Used to love the "Steam Pots" but refuse to pay $25-$30 for them! Tables were so close together we were practically connected to the next table--in fact, waitress backed up from one table and about ended up on my lap. Crowded and quite noisy--not recommended for a quiet dinner. Service was adequate, but not outstanding!

We always make an anual trek to West Des Moines in February. One of the biggest treats is going to Joe's Crab Shack. Even through this is a business trip for my significant other, the other people that dine with us have become good friends. As a group we find the place very intertaining as well as having great food. The menu has something to offer everyone, even those that don't like seafood.

Had dinner on Friday night at this Joe's Crab Shack.....service was very good & efficient....food prepared as expected. It is hard to be this chain for good plates! The East Coast platter has a good mix - especially good fish & chips portion.
