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

Went on a Wednesday with my son for all-you-can-eat shrimp. Our waitress was hilarious and super friendly. Tried out their signature "Shark Bite" drink, very cool! I will definitely come here again the next time I visit Louisiana.

Everything you would expect at a Joe's Crab Shack. We did sit outside due to the time of year (beginning of fall). The view of the Red River and the Boardwalk was very refreshing. The food and service were exactly as you would expect.

This place is on the boardwalk in Bossier city. This place is really good, the staff was nice and fast with our food. My wife and u shared one of the seafood boils and is was plenty. It was around 7 o'clock and was not crowded.

Came to Bossier City for our anniversary. We have both been looking forward to our visit to Joe's for months. Last time we were at this establishment the food and service was fantastic. Not so much this time. Our server seemed overwhelmed with three tables Drink orders were taken by another server, which was fine. Our server shows up and... More
