We were seated promptly but it took quite awhile for anyone to come acknowledge us. Once they did though, the service was impeccable. I really feel awful for not remembering the name of our waitress because I would sing her praises all day. The food...More

Great view from outside on the patio right on the beach. Staff is pleasant and appears to enjoy working there. Been here several times and never a bad experience. Always enjoy my meal.

Joe's Crab Shack on Jacksonville beach was a great choice for family dinner. Food and drinks were prompt and correct, servers very friendly.

Very easy to find parking for this place. I recommend eating outside because you have a great view of the ocean. Food and atmosphere both great!

The menu was extensive, the drinks plentiful and the service good and friendly. Turned out to be a good venue for a Saturday night gathering. Enjoyed the clam chowder as well as the fried clam strips. Some of the other items could have benefited from...More

When I went to Joe's Crab Shack, I was too full to eat because I had just eaten at the Maple Biscuit Company; yet, I wanted to relax with a refreshing drink on the beach. I did see people order the Crab legs, and they all... More
