“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

This was our first trip to Joe's Crab Shack, & the food & service were extremely good. The steam pot specials were prepared well, tasty, & served promptly. The beer was cold, the wine was good &'this was an enjoyable evening. It's loud, but the atmosphere is fun. We'll return.

“Not good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

Three of us went to the location at 8:00 pm on a Thursday night. As this was our first trip we chose the restaurant based on the hype from their commercials. While the appetizer sampler was great my wife's clam chowder was cold. The entrees were over seasoned and the fry oil appeared to be old and bitter. Service was good and the manager did try to help but the problem was with the food and not the service. Overall the experience was not worth the over inflated prices. Other seafood restaurants further down the road in Marietta are much better all around.

“I like Joe's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

The service was good, food was great, everyone was friendly, a little pricey but it is seafood. We went a little after lunch, so they were not real busy. I do recommend.

“A Few Drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We were staying at the Hilton across the road so came over here for a few drinks before hitting the sack.

The place definitely had a party atmosphere and everyone seemed to be having a good time. The staff at the door were friendly (they loved our English accents) and the waiter was helpful.

To top all that, the beer was cold and served in proper sized glasses, not the smaller ones you get at some places). Would have stayed for more than one round if we weren't suffering with jet lag.
