I imagine that Joe's competes for the younger and more casual-dining slice of the same demographic that Red Lobster appeals to: people who want affordable seafood and are willing to settle for frozen. Joe's is more likely to appeal to those who have kids and/or want a very relaxed atmosphere. Entries start around $20, and most are spicy or have... More

We've enjoyed Joe's in Colorado, California, Nevada, and now Sandy Utah. This location certainly was up to what we expected, and we'll be back for sure. Looks like some prior people may have had issues, but that isn't always the fault of the restaurant. It is often the demeanor of the customer more the restaurant personnel. Having been in the...

Excellent food (Crab Cakes were delicious, cole slaw was not to wet, snow crab was good, but the potatoes were under cooked) a great... More

The end of an era. We used to come here every year for family birthdays (all grown ups), but it's been on the decline, and we've decided this was our last time. Service was soooo grumpy (Hey can we sit over there, "no, those tables aren't supposed to be that way. - empty restaurant). "I will put the appetizer in... More

It's loud -- the staff would rather be anywhere else - it takes a while to get served -- and as a bonus, the higher than should be price tag accompanies an always disappointing meal. I am stumped that the doors stay open..

On Wednesday evening, July 27, 2016, my wife and I joined my son and his wife at Joe’s Crab Shack to celebrate his birthday. Joe’s was having their special on Queen Crab on Wednesday evenings, so my son ordered that. I had narrowed down my choices to two or three ideas and finally decided to have the Queen Crab, too....

Terrible fried food. All the items were subpar. Will never go back. Service and environment were ok. But the food itself was just horrible.

I'm from the West Coast, so my expectations weren't particularly high for a seafood restaurant so far away from the ocean, but I found myself pleasantly surprised! The Crab Cake Sandwich was super tasty, as were the coconut shrimp (which my mom had), and we shared a delicious "Sea Turtle Sundae" for dessert. We ended up eating here twice (as... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant byt were not very impressed. Staff were friendly but we found the seafood bland, watery without much taste. The seafood bucket was very disappointing with average quality seafood and high prices. We will not return.
