Food was ok. Location was great for shopping & dining. I probably had a bit more fried food than I should have. Service was a little slow on the night I went but not enough to complain about.

I love this place. Food is great, always. Service is pretty good ( they are almost always swamped, and handle it pretty well ). Server was attentive, checked on things often, zero complaints. you cant go wrong here.

Crab legs were a little over cooked! Boiled shrimp was excellent as well as the corn on the cob! I never eat corn on the cob in public but this was too good to pass up!!

One of my favorite restaurants. The servers are always so friendly and they entertainyou too. Their food is tasty, a couple of my favorites; Jumbo Coconut Shrimp the best I've ever had! Then there's always some Snow Crab, Yummy! Don't forget to try their Crab Nacho's, they're a must.

While I live in a place with seemingly endless mom-and-pop options for restaurants, I do stick to chains most of the time when on a roadtrip. I had never been to a Joe's Crab Shack before. This was a very pleasant surprise. The food was delicious with large portions. The restaurant is right on a "boardwalk" along the Red River.... More

Wife and I drove to Bossier for the weekend and decided to try Joe's. Waitress was great, she suggested the Lobster pot for 2 and we ordered it. The shrimp, crab legs, potatoes and corn were fantastic, and the first lobster was great, the second lobster however was black inside. The waitress took it away and within a few minutes... More
