I have eaten here many times over the past 10-15 years and tonight was the worst experience ever. First, let me say that I frequently eat in several of the REAL Joe's Crab Shacks in Houston. This place should not even be allowed to use the same name!
The last time I was here I noticed that the quality and quantity of the food had decreased. Tonight was a visit to see if things had improved but they were only worse. The snow crabs were half what they used to serve. It was not properly cooked and was difficult to remove from the shell. They were supposed to be spicy but were tasteless. The drawn butter served was not what it should be. It appeared to be very diluted and did not taste like butter. The ear of corn was not fully mature and only about half filled out with kernels and not well cooked. The shrimp was also under cooked and tasteless.
When they did their line dance, it was just three people and they no longer even play music while they do it. There were very few other customers there. The place has the appearance of a place in financial difficulty and under poor management
The only bright spot was an attentive server. My wife and I will not go back to eat there again.
