Beware!!!, when you eat at Joe's Crab Shack the attached parking lot is a scam. The rates are $6 for one hour ( and the wording is in really, really fine print) or $12 for all day. Maybe the nice people at Joe's should warn you, if you park in the lot next to them you only have an hour or you will get a $40 parking ticket. We almost made it. It was an hour and 17 minutes and we got our ticket, along with several other shocked patrons of the restaurant:( I'd say atleast 3 different groups of diners found a ticket on their car). I'd think Joe's servers know this happens and as a courtesy would mention to their diners if you paid $6 it's only for an hour and more than likely you won't be out in time. I mean the attendent must be standing by your vehicle when the hour mark hits, in fact we saw him in the lot with a huge stack of parking violation tickets ready to be placed on unsuspecting diners. So your options are pay $12 to park and eat..bit steep don't you think (and def not worth an extra $12), or if you find a meter, run out and pay it every 30 mins. Good luck! Oh, the restaurant was OK (the one in Atlanta is better, and in a nice safe area with free parking). It wasn't busy and still took over an hour for a late lunch. It's not in the greatest part of town either...guess that's why $$ for parking. Also, it's on the AAA discount restuarant list and when asked, the hostess and manager wouldn't give the discount.
