Over cooked seafood. No-one in the kitchen spoke english so I couldn't convey my problem. Prices are too high compared to all the other seafood places in town. Won't go back.

I typically avoid chain restaraunts at all costs but I went in with an open mind since I had never been to a Joe's Crab Shack. The menu had a lot to choose from. We had an appetizer with a mixture of fried foods, shrimp, crawfish, pickles, etc. the fried crawfish actually weren't too bad. They were lightly breaded and were tender. The rest wasn't anything special. We also tried a shrimp combo plate and it was ok but nothing too fantastic. Overall it was ok but nothing to rave about.

We went to the Joes that is on the port of Galveston. The atmosphere is great and the people are super friendly.

We chose to have dinner here because it looked nice as we were driving by and we had been to one in Miami that was pretty good. This place was practically empty on a Friday night which should have been a heads up. We ordered crab legs which were seriously overcooked. Servings were small although the pictures on the menu make them look well served.

We sat out on the veranda. The view of the Galveston ship channel was right beside us. We watched pelicans and blue herons search for fish. The staff were friendly and each one seemed to check on us throughout our meal. All the food ordered by our group was really tasty.
