We did not call ahead and stopped here on a Saturday for a late lunch with 25 people. They did a great job setting us up and making sure the orders were correct. Overall the food was good and met expectations for Joe's Crab Shack....More

We had a waiter that was the best, most attentive guy. He helped us save money by telling us what kind of crab is the most meaty to order. It was very clean and food was awesome. Can't wait to go back again soon.

Get a steampot: it's the best value. There are plenty of options available. There are tons of different cocktails to choose from too. Shark bite is to my favorite! The atmosphere is fun. This is now a no tipping establishment: so if you /want/ to...More
