My friend and I ordered the same shrimp platter, the both dishes were grossly over-cooked and we both were very disappointed. I had been at the Clifton Restaurant on three previous occasions where my guest and I enjoyed our meals
Overcooked and the potatoes were tasteless. Very overpriced. The crab legs were scrawny too.
The crab buckets are amazing! Will definitely be back.
Waitress was great! Attentive and provided prompt service
We went tonight as my sons choice to celebrate his 8th birthday. This was a mistake. The hostess was very welcoming. Once at the table is where the problems started. The waitress was not hearing correctly the food that I was ordering for my kids. I had to repeat several times. It was Happy Hour at the time. I asked if it included certain drinks. She didn’t know. I had to ask her to ask. We ordered appetizers. We asked for a second order of garlic bread. Instead we got another order of the drink I ordered. After we explained we didn’t order that, the waitress came with the drink and said that’s what she thought we asked for. My husband just paid for it and drank it. He asked for a second coke and had to ask several times. My steam pot was not seasoned like normal. I asked for more seasoning several times. I finally got it without a top to take it with my food to go. We didn’t even sing Happy Birthday to my son there. Such a disappointment. Will not recommend anyone to come here. Especially all we spent on our bill tonight.
The waitress took the final receipt so I can’t give her name.
Joe's Crab Shack is one of the best places for crab. We've never been disappointed. We had the king and snow crab legs and both were delicious. The service was excellent.
Been here many times before. Food was a little bit over steamed and the steam pot was very watery. The prices have gone up significantly too.
Great customer service, reasonably priced menu. Overall an excellent experience
Quantity of food seems to be getting thinned out. Filets are smaller, shrimp are smaller. Not at all please with meal.
Food, service, drinks are all amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant.
The place, food and service was perfect. Our waitress was Kevin and he was awesome. Very great experience, I went with all my family and everyone was satisfied. Definitely recommend to everyone and definitely we will be coming back. Thanks 🤩
Our family enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere and we will definitely be back!
Our waitress was amazing! The food was amazing, everything was great!
First time there and we had a wonderful family time. Definitely can't wait for our next trip back!
Disappointed that we were not allowed to eat outside. The manager told us that it was reserved for a group. When we left, an hour later, 30 mins before restaurant close, there were no one sitting outside. So did the manager tell a fib?
Ordered the shrimp platter with grilled shrimp, bacon wrapped shrimp and shrimp scampi. All the shrimp were over cooked. Ordered side order of mussels, mussels were cold.
Standard of food has dropped. Waitress was good. Although there were not enough staff. Manager definitely could be friendlier.
Service was poor food was disgusting. Only reason we went there because of our Landry card Never again
It has been a while since I’ve been here; glad I went back.
our server kelly was amazing! loved the food and drinks
Server was great, food was decent, place was clean.
Had a much needed outing. Customer service was great.
So I love joes I been going to this exact one since I was 16 just about , I bought my friend here to celebrate her birthday . I put in the notes it was her birthday and when we got there I asked the host did she see my special request and she said yes , my request was just for them to sing happy birthday . This day was the first time I seen Joe’s so empty, I want to say approximately no more than 8 tables were being used and usually there’s a wait .. anyways when we got there our waiter took about 30 minutes to see us I had to call the host to call him , then he kept forgetting things in our order I felt like he was very careless , he didn’t know the menu very well or the prices and at this point I seen him there several occasions so I know she should know something about the menu. Then nobody came to sing happy birthday to my friend and the manager was with her friends in the table booth right in front of us just playing and yelling across the room . As it got later I heard workers in the back screaming and cheering that it was finally time to clock out like their not even concerned about the guest in the dining area . I sent my food and drink back twice it was the worse experience I’ve had at Joe’s so far and every time I visit their taking something else off the menu .. disappointing. And to add on the lobster tails they give wasn’t even a pound , I didn’t like that at all I feel like that should be in the description if your selling at market price .. based off this one occasion I definitely wouldn’t recommend anyone to go there I was so embarrassed because that was her first time there and she knows I love Joe’s ..
Great place, especially for kids..my only comment would be that the food took quite a while to arrive which is not always great when you have little ones at the table, and I ordered their foos as soon as we sat down. But I would definitely go back and my older daughter loved the environment !
Service was polite and prompt
Good food. Fair prices
I have been a fan of Joe’s Crabshack for some time but I was very disappointed yesterday! They could not make a Pina Colada because they did not have a blender is what I was told. Also, the mozzarella sticks were horrible and the shrimps had a bitter taste to them. The waiter was very nice and attentive but sadly the food aspect was not there.
The waitress was friendly. It was a bit noisy due to one party of young soccer players in the corner but not enough to complain about. The food was good. Shark bite drink is always a hit. Just wish they had more of an appetizer selection such as steamers or scallops.
Haven't been back in a year or so but see a lot of changes. Food options weren't as exciting as they used to be. Will need to re-think another trip back to JCS.
Alexandra was amazing!! She even got everyone to sing happy birthday to me. However getting in we waited at the bar asked for a table and was told they were all taken meanwhile one was there. When asked was told a family was gonna sit there however we showed up before them and they took a while to get us a table. The ladies at the bar told us we would get great service but they both seemed very busy so we moved when we finally got a table. Other than that it was a good vibe .
Service was great and food was great overall better then expected
Love the appetizer. The food was delicious.
Great experience overall. Waitress was a little slow in the beginning, but once she was on a roll, it was great. Food was great. We sat outside and it was a really nice day.
Fathers Day for the father who loves crabs. Delish! Service is excellent too!
Our waitress was too busy restaurant too crowded no separation in tables. We had to remind waitress about drinks & she was rude.
Food was delicious. You guys have an amazing chocolate layer cake and amazing waiters.
The food was terrible. I ordered the Pirate Plate. The food was all grease. I was sick all night. I puked my guts out.
My wife ordered the Queen Crab Legs and they were not good. The corn was old.
I would not recommend eating there.
We were upset that they took off items on the menu that we were looking forward to eating. They took the crab cakes out. They also don’t serve the Garlicky Mussels or the crab stuff shrimp that we’ve had at Joe’s Crab in Florida. Our waitress was very nice.
Service was really bad and place was not packed. Had to ask for everything from napkins, drinks and bucket for crab shells. Food was ok but very salty.
We had the crab legs - low country crab boil style served in a bucket. Really very good. Only complaint is that they serve weird tasting margarine instead of clarified butter with the crab. Would have appreciated a selection on the menu that included crab meat out of the shell so you don’t have to fight for your food. Mason jar Bloody Mary’s were fine. Side salad was fine. Chose a day with beautiful weather so that added to the outdoor ambiance. Sat right next to a music speaker and although a little loud, it was ok; snd this is coming from a person with sensitive hearing - and it helps to mask conversations between tables. Service was fine.
Nice, casual family dining setting. Service is quick and polite, covered outdoor seating available, nautical theme is nice and not overdone . Well seasoned seafood and plenty of it, prices are a bit high but right now all restaurants are.
had a great server that made up for the wait time!
Food was delicious and service was very good! Will definitely go again
