“Overrated & over priced”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Ordered the Arctic Bay steampot. The food was ok, nothing special it all tasted the same, fishy and salty. I felt the price was high for "sea food". The tables are clean and the service average. The food could have been better for the $37+ tab. Like all chain restaurants prices are higher, standards are lower. Won't be back to this location anytime soon.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

The food used to be better. I did not finish my meal.
The servers were friendly.
The temperature was very cold, so we opted to sit outside even though it was raining.

“Overpriced and food is just not good”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

At one time this used to be a nice little place to eat and we would visit often. Not sure what happened but the food is now mediocre at best. The staff is pretty attentive, but will spend my $$ elsewhere.

“Fun place to eat”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

My family loves eating at Joe's Crab Shack in Beaumont. The food is good, great service, and a fun atmosphere. They handle large groups well. If you are not with a large group ask to not be seated by a large group, things can get loud. They have unique ways of celebrating birthdays. It's not a place to go for a quiet dinner. Great playground for young ones. We enjoyed the crab nacho's for the first time this month. My nephew was treated to a drink that came with a shark on the side that was full of a flavor that was to be added to his drink and he got to keep the shark. Fun place to go.

“Don't Waste Your Time or Money”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Upon entering, the smell almost knocked us over!!!! First clue...We were seated and had our server appear quickly. The menu was SO overpriced it wasn't even funny!!! Crab legs for $25. Are you kidding me? I mentioned the high prices jokingly to our server and she replied..I just work here. OK..... Our food came out quickly and was hot. We ordered a couple of shrimp dishes and we were good with them. Not impressed, but good. Although the service was good, the overall experience was not. Don't waste your time or your money. Too many other places in the area that are so much better and priced right.
