Overall good ...appetizer brought out 2 min ahead of meal. Mushrooms were quite hidden and not good value. Meal ...king crab..was what I expected as market price has skyrocketed. They were not large king crab but sm to med. Wish had candle heating butter at table.

Went to Joe's looking for Crab. We found them, however they aren't as good as they used to be. Joe's has changed ownership & it shows. There was a fish dish that I used to get that I really loved. They no longer offer that either. Our server said she has worked there a long time and they have taken several "good things" off the menu. We ordered calamari & It wasn't as good as it used to be either. It'll be awhile before we go back. A little disappointed.

Looks dated inside. Very expensive. Good food though. But be prepared to pay $200 or so for a meal for 4, with no appetizer or dessert.

I was a bit disappointed, it was my daughter’s birthday and no dessert.

Service was excellent

They were very accommodating to our special request to be separate from the foot traffic (COVID concerns), all of the staff was super helpful and nice, and most people wore masks once they were done eating anyways! Awesome location with delicious food we haven't had in years. Thank you for making our Halloween extra awesome!

Food was super fishy tasting, it was very loud but not in the fun way, drinks were not refilled even though the restaurant wasn’t busy (on a Friday night) and expensive for what it was. Good reminder of why I hadn’t been there in 10 years.

The food was great, and came out quickly. Being served by the bartender, our service was efficient, but not overbearing. The only issue with the visit was the air conditioning was up too high and we were cold and our food became cold quickly.

The blackened shrimp tacos were good but would've nice to get some other side than tortilla chips. Secondly and most importantly my grandson ordered a crab entree that was $50.00, however they were quite skimpy with the crab. He only had one king crab leg and two snow crab clusters. They then filled up the bucket with potatoes and corn. Terrible value for the $$. We will opt for another seafood restaurant next time.

We were seated quickly. The environment was fun, and our server was outstanding. The food was delicious, and for our daughter, the highlight was the paint-your-own crab rice crispy dessert.
An excellent dinner out. Thank you!

Ugh, inedible, greasy food. My broccoli tasted like fish. Our meal was frequently interrupted by crazy dancing of wait staff. Had to go there for a family member but never will again. Got to say though, the place was pretty crowded, mostly with families so maybe they have a good kid’s meal deal?

My boyfriend and I spend a lot of money at this particular restaurant and this last time the service was HORRIBLE. Waited 30mins to even be greeted after being seated. The guy continued to apologize multiple times took our order and brought the lady who would actually be waiting our table out to greet us. The order came out wrong and when we where done eating we waited 30 minutes for our waitress to come so we can get a check. The check came fast but we waited another 25 minutes for them to pick up the card. The majority of our time spent was waiting to leave.

We ordered a Cajun Steampot for two and unfortunately the lobster was overcooked and chewy and the crab legs were practically meatless. The Long Island Iced Tea was truly horrible...so sweet it was impossible to drink (have never gotten a decent cocktail at this place, don't waste your money). We were overcharged by $40 and brought it to the server's attention - she returned the check and it was still $20 over the actual amount. The manager finally adjusted the bill to reflect the correct amount. I don't think I'll be going back to this establishment and it's unfortunate, it used to be really good.

Crab was outstanding. The corn and potatoes inside that order were cold. Ketchup was hard to come by for the fries. Beer was ice cold and that made up for some of the other.

I am pregnant and have been craving Joe's crab shack! I am from Huntington Beach Ca and when we moved here I was so excited to still get to enjoy a little taste of home! I took my dad for his birthday and was so happy with how clean it was how the staff seemed so happy to help. Very accommodating when I called and asked for a both because my dad is handicap. Over all 10/10 would recommend! We will be back! :)

We felt bad for the guy who was running the whole restaurant by himself, but it took like 90 minutes to get our food and it was freezing on the patio.

The food was terrific and the wait was reasonable. It felt like our waiter was overwhelmed but we totally understood due to COVID and probably a reduction in staff due to distancing requirements. Good value for the food.
