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.

Went for lunch for anniversary with the wife. Good food, good sized portions and good service. Will go back for sure. Social distancing was appropriate but look forward to the day of full restaurants.

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.

The crab cake was not good, not tasty for sure. $10.00 for the margaritas was a little pricey. We drank them but won't order those again.
Mostly satisfied the food but not worth the hours drive it took to get there.

Joes is usually great. This time we felt really rushed. They were out of 1 of the ingredients in my wife’s drink. They served it to her maybe thinking she wouldn’t notice! The food was, for some reason, not up to their usual standards.

First time to Joe’s Crab Shack, it was good. We did note on the Open Table Reservation that it was my wife’s birthday but that was never acknowledged by the host staff or server. But otherwise the food was good and the ambiance is fun! I loved the Hurricane drink. We ordered crab stuffed mushrooms, crab and shrimp dip, clam chowder, a Cajun pot and an Atlantic pot. The appetizers were great and the pots were amazing! So much flavor and a lot of food! Good thing we only ordered two pots to share between the three, any more and it would’ve been too much! Overall a good place to go and enjoy a fun night!

We had a great experience. The QR code menu was easy to use. The ambiance is mostly what you expect at Joe's except they staff didn't dance while we were there. Food was superb!

Our server was fantastic! She was super fast, efficient and so polite. The food itself was substandard. The calamari wasn’t cooked very well, and the steam pot for two was very low quality.
