    It was ok. Apparently they didn't have my reservation so I had to wait...weird. It was way too noisy and crowded. Service was good. Our waiter was nice. I don't think I will go back.

    I love Joe's! Always have. I just wish they would bring back the energy and spirit that drew me in so many years ago. I really miss seeing the staff exciting the customers by singing and dancing and pulling them into it. And they would really put on a show when someone had a birthday, rather than jus simply singing Happy Birthday and walking away. They made it fun. What happened to all of that great entertainment that was Joe's? Please bring it back?!

    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.

    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.
