Great seafood - can not go wrong getting crab legs here. My son had Mahi and really enjoyed it. Pricing is about right (maybe a touch high) for the food you get. I would consider cost above mid-range - but in no way is this a fine dining establishment. Our server was on it - quick to refill drinks and... More

The tables are not big enough to accommodate 4 people, since there is a well in the middle, so if there are steam pots involved it is crowded. We were addressed as "you guys" when 2 of us in our party were clearly female,and non of the dirty dishes were ever cleared away. She did, however, take the plate covering... More

Hannah was my server, absolute gem! I was created with a smile even though the customer in front of me was yelling at her. She was awesome! Really the only reason there's a score of 4. Would give her service a 5, food average. But, they don't take tips. What the...

Very good fresh seafood. Good selection of seafood and some steaks. I have eaten there several times and have never been dissatisfied. Average price for fresh seafood it is not cheap but worth it, if you order a margarita in a mason jar you keep the glass that has Joe's ctabshack on it. Go hungry leave full

Carry out service was excellent. Food, good. Service, fast AND good. Carry out from Joe's definitely gets a do-over.

The food was excellent. The service was a little messed up tho. Our waitress was over extended and just could not get to us enough, drink refills, etc. Overall a pretty good dinner. The Steampots are amazing, lots of food but expensive. I had the Arctic Bay Steampot with a lobster in it. Delicious, but very expensive. My wife had... More

Met family at Joe's crab shack, since we were from out of town, and were very pleased. From the moment we walked in, to our food, it was all great.

We had a great meal at Joe's in Columbus. The food was great as was the service. The kids ate free the night we were there, so that was a bonus.

This Joe's was the best one we have visited across the country! The steak was cooked just right and the Steam Pots did not disappoint at all. The value was great and our waitress provided excellent service. We are from the Deep South but were treated with the same hospitality we enjoy at home. We will definitely return the next... More
