Nothing special we had - nothing bad - just sort of blah. It is a Joe's Crab Shack. Almost empty when we ate there.

I love joes, but I love crab so yeah. Queen crab with BBQ seasoning is what I order their, but the spicy seasoning is also great. It’s not cheap but you get a good amount of crab cooked right. Everyone needs to live a little.

The Dungeness BBQ crab is amazing, with corn on the Cobb and potatoes. Order it with a Modelo beer with tobasco, salt and lime and you're set.

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...More

I don't think I have ever seen all you can eat crab. I agree with Eric T. There maybe all you can eat shrimp but it is a promotional sale and so you have to keep an eye out for it.

I don't believe that they do. I have seen specials throughout the year that do include all you can eat shrimp. The buckets and steam-pots have quite a bit in them though, and are very reasonably priced.
