We were excited to sit outside on the deck overlooking the beach. The service was excellent and the fish was so delicious that we actually ended up going back a second time a couple days later.

My husband took me to Joe's Crab Shack to celebrate my 71st birthday where I nearly froze to death. It was so cold that my teeth actually started to chatter. The waitress was wonderful, the food became cold before i could eat it and the coffee was cold before I could drink. I was told they didn't have heat because... More

Visited Jacksonville to visit with my adult granddaughter and her fiancé. Took them to Joe's Crab Shack on the beach and was extremely pleased with the food, service and outside seating atmosphere! Highly recommend this restaurant.

Pros: The food was good. Customer service was friendly. Food there is super cheap. You have the ocean view. Free parking across from the restaurant. Cons: the place it self both outside and inside is a little outdated.

We came here 4 years ago and thought we would try it again, what a mistake. We sat down at the bar outside and waited for about 10-15 to get served, we ordered drinks and the bucket of shrimp. The shrimp were small for what we paid and to be honest they were nothing to write home about, not much... More

Most of the seafood dishes are pretty decent but they are definitely not Fresh Catch. I think this place is named tourists and because of the name people think they're getting fresh fish. I feel what you're getting is frozen everything and it's just heated up a flavored and nicely put on a dish and served. It's okay it's more... More

So we decided to stop by for lunch. The food was amazing and the waitress named Tracy that helped us was so awesome! She had that personality that was just so lovely we had to leave a review about Joes as well as her. We ordered crab nachos which were so good! We also had the Cedar plank Salmon, fish... More

Nothing positive or negative about my visit. Everything was good, I just feel there are many better places in Jax Beach to get better seafood for a better price. But if you want a tourist type restaurant that is going to be the same as any other one, go to Joe's.

I visited here expecting something a little special, after all, this is the USA & very well know for great steaks & sea food. Perhaps I just caught the Chef on a bad day & to pass judgement on only one visit is a little unfair. The location could not have been better & neither could the service, however the... More
