I had Mahi Mahi and it wasn't very good, certainly frozen. Had rice and veggies with it and both everything was very salty. The restaurant smells of fried food. Only two wines by the glass to choose from. After ordering, it took quite a while to get my food. Maybe no one orders fish there. Even though it was next... More

My niece and I had a feast for my biryhday. It was very pleasant. I had new england clam chowder and salad. My niece shared her crab legs and fried ocra. We also shared oysters on the shell. The hostess and coworkers sang happy birthday to me. It was very nice. Thank you from Rita Bennett Westminster Colorado

Opted for a smaller portion as the full queen snow crab was enormous! Was totally delicious and more than enough. Succulent and fresh with great corn in the cob. Didn't go much on the desserts as they were super sugary and packed with calories but the crab was a winner!!

Joe's crab is excellent and plenty. Steamed to perfection. Only complaint is about beer selection which is not great. Otherwise recommended if you like crab.

Awesome shrimp but bummed they were out of fries on a Sunday. Someone obviously didnt order enough. Service a little slower than other locations (took 25 minutes just to get our order put in). Probably wont be back to this location.

Your typical Joe's Shack. Loud, bright and busy. The crab however is always spot on. Our waitress wasn't overly attentive but the food arrived quickly and Valentines Specials were offered. Don't go for the atmosphere but you can't go wrong with the snow/dungeoness crab.

Wide choice of seafood plates. The steam pots offer a nice variety. Sometimes the wait staff sing and dance.

We had never been. They had a variety of good options. I had the Voo Doo chicken bites. Delicious, but a little spicy, not something I mind. Service was really great, but it took a while to get our food.

They are open until 11 on Thursdays. I had the fish and shrimp combo. The food was good, beer was cold and the bartender was friendly. You can walk here from the Hampton Inn.
