After finding Joe's Crab Shack online, my wife and I made the hour drive to check out the place. Much to my surprise we had a short wait, escorted into a large room with many open tables and booths at 7:30pm on a Friday night. We were waited on reasonably quickly. Our drinks came then we ordered the calamari appetizer- first disappointment- french fried rubber bands.
My wife selected a crab bucket of queen crab & I picked the Artic Steampot. Then we waited- waited- waited. We were entertained by the wait staff anytime there was music playing they would drop into a mini- flash mob & danced. After a couple of those- it became mundane.
Finally our meals came- my wife had a large portion of crab- my lobster was small- maybe a pound and a smaller portion of snow crab. The entrees also came with an ear of corn & small boiled potatoes. Sadly, the highlight of my meal was the corn. It seemed like I drove an hour to have a pot of shells.
My wife was pleased with her portions and finished- she pitched the potatoes- they were hard and unappealing. She then ordered a dessert to go that was nearly $8!
I had high hopes but found myself very disappointed on the drive home.
So much for Joe's- plenty of hype but cant deliver
