While vacationing in Florida MY wife and I visited our area Joe's Crab Shack in Celebration which is one of our favorite eateries. THE seafood is delicious and a pleasant staff as well and the cozy atmosphere makes the eating there so enjoyable.

Our waiter, Joe, went above and beyond. The food was great but there is something about really sticky floors at a restaurant that disturbs me. Overall, we had a great time but they could do a better job keeping the restaurant clean.
