We ate there for our Anniversary and they went above and beyond to make it a special night. The food was great and the service was even better. We brought friends along and they can't wait to dine here again.

Very tasty salmon on a plank, although slightly undercooked. French fries were dry and bland; perhaps they'd been under the warmer too long. Server was attentive to our needs.

I took my mom there for her birthday before going to the theater. They were energetic, sang happy birthday to her, and heard fast fun service! She lives coconut shrimp and said it was great!

We love Joe’s! It’s a 3 hour drive for us so we try to stop for crab every time we are in the area

We hadn’t been to Joe’s in a considerable amount of time. We’ve always been fans of the atmosphere and the food. I was shocked at the price increase since our last visit. We used to take our entire family of 6 and thought that it was fair priced for what we received. It’s so expensive now there’s no way I’d go again. It’s unfortunate that the prices are so high. The service was fantastic. Our server was phenomenal. The food was good but not worth the price. This is a fun place with great service but it’s become somewhere that only those who are wealthy can afford to go.

Grilled Shrimp skewers were very over cooked and tough. Bacon on stuffed bacon-wrapped shrimp was barely cooked. Had the add-on king crab for $16 and got two little legs the size of typical snow crab.

The crab was mushy and previously Frozen, I used to love this place, but don't bother getting any of the crab buckets, the product is less then the value. Apologies for the bad review.

Food is very expensive at about 40$ per plate for the only thing you'd go to Joe's for- seafood. It's a good idea to take a group of people and split the tab. Great beer selection. Lovely waitresses, and very friendly/punctual. Food was out to us less than 10 minutes after we ordered it.

Great food, but it's about 80$ for two people to eat a filling meal (including appetizers and drinks, but no dessert).

Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. The beer is all 3.2, the steam pots don't taste fresh, Long John Silvers has better fried seafood, and the stuffed mushrooms were all breading and a little bitty mushroom underneath. STAY AWAY!!!! I'll never spend another nickel in a Joe's Crab Shack again.
