Joe's Crab Shack is the best crab shack. It delivers signature crab, excellent crafted drinks and attentive, friendly service. The easy to use crab tool makes short work for Dungeness, Snow, King, Queen or any other crab or crustacean one wishes to consume. Joe's Classic Steampot combines dungeness and snow crab with an ear of corn and steamed potatoes to combine fantastic flavors with satisfying substance. The Hurricane (limit 2 per customer) is a work of art combining fruit juices, a variety of rums (including 151 and a drizzle of Myer's on top) with a slice of pineapple in a formidable chalice. The shark bite is a drink that must be seen to be believed. The service was there whenever desired and made the evening outstanding with a perfect combination of food, friends and service. The atmosphere is casual (crab shack!) and the large location begs for a group of friends to gather for a party and memorable evening. Large parties and groups did not interfere with each other or impact business or casual dining. The layout, environment and menu selections make Joe's Crab Shack a local gem worth a visit. One visit and you'll come back - unless you don't like crab.

Ate here with a friend this week. I highly recommend the outside seating on a nice day, great ocean views and good view of Palos Verdes. Staff was typical for the area, food was fresh, hot and deliscious. Great night out

There could not have been a more perfect evening and setting for our son and his fiance’s “Wedding Welcome Dinner.” From the initial meetings with Greg, General Manager, through the wonderful evening of March 24, 2017, everything was fabulous! Cristina, a manager, went out of her way to help us design the menus and her creativity accented our theme. Everything needed from extra tables, easels, heaters and more were available. The staff is amazing-right on top of everything for our 64 guests!

The drinks, appetizers, dinners were prompt and the food was out of this world! Great portions and so delicious! We could not have made a better choice for this special occasion and would highly recommend Joe’s Crab Shack-Redondo Beach, CA for any function you are planning. All our guests had such positive comments about the entire evening. Thank you so much. WE GIVE YOU A 10+!!

We were here for a drink one day, and it was very nice on the deck, though the wine was pricy. The servers were all great. We went back a few days later with a friend for lunch because we wanted to try it again. The service was excellent, the lunch menu is a great value, but the food was average. I had the gumbo and it didn't have much flavor. My Caesar salad was good and very fresh. My husband had the chopped salad which was not good because there wasn't much on it. Wouldn't go back for food. The deck is very nice and right on the ocean. Parking is free.

The servings are huge so we shared a few sampler type meals. The crab is good, but I was not a fan of the lobster. The other fish items were good. My daughter loved the fried shrimp. Our waiter was nice and because it's a fun atmosphere it's a great place for kids. We got a fun family picture too. The photographer did a nice job taking our picture. Super close to our hotel, so an easy place for dinner.
