We were there on Easter Sunday, 2018. We ordered crab nachos, and when they arrived, we had to ask for small plates. I was served the Dungeness crab pot, and no plate. There was an inverted plate or bowl ontop of the steam pot, but...More

We went there on weekday night recently, obviously to eat a bunch of seafood. It was all quite good, no complains, reasonably priced.

Went for a 6 yr. Old's birthday. He had a great time. Rode the horse and loved the crab. The rest of the food was plenty and the service fine.

We have been to this restaurant a few times. The cleanliness has turned to filth. The shades over the windows were totally disgusting with layers of dirt on them. I watched as one of the empoyees "cleaned" a nearby table by wiping the existing food...More

Appetizers were good-stuffed mushrooms and crab nachos. Ordered several orders of king and queen crab. Crab legs came out lukewarm and some were cold. Some of the king was overcooked, shells moved like Mr. Gumby-very rubbery. Notified our waitress, who was great, who in turn...More

I don't know why I had such an ambivalent preconception about Joe's Crab Shack, but I had never been in one before. My daughter and I went here last weekend on a whim, craving seafood, and were not disappointed in the least, in fact, we...More
