We love Joe's on Pacific Beach! Try to go each time we are in the area. Service is good & the dancing is fun to watch!! Food is good too & made even better by the amazing view of the Pacific Ocean! Beautiful! It's not fancy just fun & yummy!!

Predictable menu like any Joe's Crab Shack. Roomy inside dining at 'picnic table' style tables. Noisy, but appropriate setting for beach scene.

Very busy and noisy on a Tuesday night. When we were seated we ordered then while we were waiting for our food we noticed the table was SOOOOOO sticky. We could barely lift our menu's up, that's how sticky it was. We ended up laying paper-towels down all over the table. Maybe that's why a big roll of them sits in the middle of the table. I made the mistake of ordering a Bacon-Cheeseburger at a seafood place. It was just okay. Also an old man was having a heart-attack in the restraunt. Hopefully that was from age. Not the food.

Lots of fun tearing into the bucket of goodness that Joe's serves up. Our group of 3 was easily satisfied by just two entrees and side salad or chowder. Crab, crab and more crab - delicious no matter how you have it prepared. The place is a bit noisy and definitely casual, but well worth the visit. Good value for all you get. The location is right on the beach, but no outside seating. A fair amount of stairs to climb, for anyone who this may be an issue.

Way too over cooked the food and only a little meat in the crab...LOUD Loud loud!!! $40 for a small pot of seafood wasnt worth it to walk away hungry. Wont do another Joe's. The waiter was very attentive and the view was super but that is about the only thingsthat were good.
