We were driving from the Bay Area to Escondido after the Thanksgiving holiday, and decided to stop in Oceanside for lunch. We found Joe's Crab Shack right on the marina and decided to give it a try for lunch, and I'm glad we did! The place was empty when we arrived (four or five other couples came in while we were eating). We sat overlooking the marina, although the view was slightly hindered by scaffolding. We ordered up a couple drinks and started out with Crab Stuffed Mushrooms, which were absolutely delicious! The large mushrooms were stuffed with homemade seafood stuffing, topped with monterey jack and alfredo. My lady also had Twin Lobster Tails, 2 grilled cold water lobster tails cut in half, served with white rice and broccoli. I had grilled 2 shrimp skewers (6 on each skewer), served over rice with broccoli. We both thoroughly enjoyed or meals.
Service was very good, and our server, Meriah. was very attentive to our needs. A great experience!
