The food lacked flavor and my server kept taking smoke breaks on the patio.

Needs a little updating, but all in all the restaurant is just what it advertises.
Seafood, drinks, and alternate entrees for non fish eaters.

Fantastic service from Andy. Was our first time here and he was patient with our questions. Shrimp tacos were delicious. We will be back.

Although I reserved our table in advance, it still resulted in us waiting for an extra 10 minutes to be seated. The service wasn’t too bad but the food is another story. The macaroni literally looks like it came straight out of the Krafts macaroni and cheese box, the fries were over seasoned and the mozzarella cheese sticks were way too thick. I would never go back to another Joe’s Crab Shack in my life.

Food was great. There were 8 of us and 4 of us got king crab. So good. Others had snow, or salmon.
Our server was very strange... he would just walk up to the table and stand there, not saying anything. We had to ask are you ready for our order?
Several of us ordered water to go with our bar drinks.
He brought out 6 glasses of water, and set them all by one person.

Food was gross. Waitress acted like we were bothering her because we had questions. She was too busy on her cell phone. We won’t ever go back. No wonder all of Joe’s are shutting down.

On May 20, Monday, at 5pm, we ate at Joe's. I prepaid $30 for our party of 4 because it was my birthday and my brother always picks up the tab. I knew my wife and I would spend more than we normally allow at other restaurants (JCS prices are already too high for the food you get) so I had the server run my credit card for $30 and deduct the $30 off of the table bill for my brother without him knowing I had done this. The server either forgot or something else happened but it appeared that she did not deduct the $30 from the table bill. She didn't offer to give me a receipt for my $30 prepayment so I may have to contest this with my credit card company if they won't fix this at JCS in Cedar Hill, TX.

Had a 5 person table reserved however they took us to a 4 seater smh, ordered the crab bucket which I wanted a lil spicy, they threw a gobb of clumped up spices in the bucket all over everything which was entirely too much. I could have sent it back but didn’t wanna make a fuss... I didnt eat the corn nor potatoes because of the clump of mess....32.00 for the bucket went down the drain. Wasn’t busy but hardly saw the waitress, drinks were never refilled. Needless to say I won’t ever go back, the trip from Arlington wasn’t worth it

Same problem that plagued this location in the past - too many rules! I couldn't get horseradish for my cocktail sauce unless I ordered oysters. What about my pound of peel-n-eat shrimp? It was good food, but not close to great.
