Great crabs as always, but not the same atmosphere as what I have experienced in other Crab Shacks around America. But got crabs and they were great

We had lunch here before we hit downtown and the North Shore. The food was great as always and the service was even better. I really wish I could remember our servers name because she was a rockstar. Young girl very friendly and I would give her a job if she ever came to Denver.

Best patio at a Joe's Crab Shack I've ever seen! Wonderful to sit outside and see a lot of people using the bike and running path along the edge of the Allegheny River!

This is probably my 4th Joe's Crabshack that I have eaten at. While in town in 2010 I ate here on 2 occasions, and on both occasions, my experience was fantastic!

Didn't know what to expect going to a chain. But everything was surprisingly good. Food came out quick and was hot. Crystal our server was amazing and the manager Tommy i think? Checked up on us. Great night out.

My husband and I went there for a date night. It was not crowded at all which was a good thing. We were seated right away. For an appetizer, we got balls of fire. Those are always my favorite.
