    We haven’t been to Joe’s Crab Shack in quite some time, but decided to try them because they had a table for eight available. We wanted to introduce our grandchildren to seafood. While the prices have increased, so has the quality of the food. In my opinion, the quality of their food is back to where it was 20 years ago after a decline over recent years. The prices are up too, but that’s understandable given inflationary cost of seafood. Overall, we had a great time.

    Seated immediately on arrival. Had enough time to have a drink and review menu. Waiter came by, took our order and we were served shortly thereafter. Food was perfect and waiter made a point to check with us to see if we were satisfied or required any thing else. Good experience and will return.

    we were early so not too many servers. The bartender helped us but when she got busy with her own duties we were somewhat ignored. Had to go to the cashier to get our tab at the front. not a big deal. The thing they really need to improve is having melted warm butter available. You get butter but it gets cold quick.

    I will not go back. The restaurant is dirty the hostess was SUPER rude. Our waitress left us without drinks, they did not have king crab legs or lobster tails at 7:45 on a Friday. We should have just left as I am still disappointed and not likely to ever return.

    The service was terrible. He never checked with us or cleared the table. I had to find someone to give us our check and it was split wrong. The food was over cooked all around. The bathrooms were filthy with broken toilet seats.

    Quality has gone way down hill, the food was over fried, but the servers were trying their best. The door also looks very unappealing and abandoned.

    Our first time here, we were surprised by the quality of the seafood. Often seafood at most venues in the Denver area is overcooked and tasteless. I had the grilled mahi-mahi and hubby had the seafood plate. It was a bit noisy but we expected that. Service was great, staff seemed happy to be working there.

    we were 5 minutes early for our reservation and were seated right away which was nice, but we sat there for 30 min and not a single worker came up to our table. I even got up once and told the hostess that we we still waiting, but still no one came to our table.

    Took over an hour to get our food. Had to beg for check. Mind you we sat down at 745. Waited til almost 9 for our food, of course an entire entree was missing. Finally got check at 922 pm. Only thing that is semi decent is the steampots. Other than that it is all fried beyond recognition.

    Went there for a valentines dinner with a date… when I made the reservation there were valentines dinner specials… when we arrived we were met with a note on the door… they are not participating in any dinner specials… went in anyway… when placing my order we were then met with “sorry were all out of that” then it was oh sorry we don’t have that… then it was yet again.. oh sorry we don’t have that either…. Finally placed an order they could fill…. Get the food… garbage !!! Over cooked dry and the stuffed crab shell was all breading no crab at all… Service sucked… we had to keep asking other wait help for everything…. Our waiter took our order and didn’t return until it was time to pay the bill !!! Then I learned this location is under new ownership…. Well I guess the new owner won’t be in business very long with the way things went for us !!!!!

    Food was good. Restaraunt is in serious need of some TLC. Where we sat was freezing (kept our coats on and were shivering), but when I went to wash my hands in restroom, the other side of dining room was overly warm. Bathrooms were dirty but they seemed understaffed like everywhere is. Their website for their location shows Valentines Day specials, but sign on entry door said they were not participating in specials. Staff was very pleasant & our service was nice.

    We were very disappointed in our experience at Joe's. Our son had never been here and wanted to go for his 15th birthday. The food was greasy, flavorless and dry. And it was extremely overpriced. My husband used the restroom while we were there and an employee came in used the facilities and left without washing his hands! We will not be returning to Joe's Crab Shack.

    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.
