When we got to the restaurant I told that they do not take reservations on the web. Phone only. So had to wait. Not impressed at all.

Wouldn’t waste my money going here for flavorless food. Me and gf had a shored steam pot that had no flavor total waste of a date night. Severely disappointed

They were understaffed, and choose to send 7 people to sing happy birthday while we waited for silverware to begin to eat our dinner which had been served.

The food was great as always. But the forgot to sing Happy Birthday to my kiddos and almost forgot one of the desserts we ordered. Was not very happy about that.

For one thing, you cannot reserve a table through OpenTable. If you try, you will be disappointed when you arrive with no reservations. The prices keep going up. For a party of 5, it cost $162.00 plus tip without alcoholic drinks. The food and service was good. The only main issue I had was a man and his kids and he just let them scream and be loud without stopping them. Very annoying and the manager did nothing either.

Only reason that I did not give 5 stars was that I had made reservations the day prior to our dinner party for 7pm. When we arrived with six of us the receptionist said that we didn't have a reservation and that it would be about an hours wait. Don't think anymore need be said about this except that she finally said she would go talk to the manager. A few moments later we were seated. Our waitress was great as was the meal. Servings were very ample. I would recommend Joes Crab Shack, Mesquite to my friends.

Food was fantastic and waiter came by our table of “9” often to check on us and refill our drinks. Food was fresh and good. We will be back! It was my birthday and was surprised with ice cream and sprinkles!

Playground was flooded. We got our buckets of crab but had to wait for dishes because they didn’t have any clean. So meanwhile the food gets cold.

Our service was incredibly slow. Waited over 40 minutes for salad and steamer pot. Tables around us came and went. Manager offered free desert to make up for kitchen issues.
