Ordered the fish taco's blackened and you couldn't taste any of the fish because they burnt the seasonings beyond belief. Ended up only eating half. Husband didn't like his fish and chips either. Waited probably 5 minutes for our waitress to stop flirting with her coworker before she noticed we were ready for the check.

Good crab legs (A) but small sides (D) for $32. and its very very expensive (F). Dessert was key lime pie which was fine but it was $8. So for one my bill was $52 with tax and tip. Just too much money.

Great crabs as always, but not the same atmosphere as what I have experienced in other Crab Shacks around America. But got crabs and they were great

We had lunch here before we hit downtown and the North Shore. The food was great as always and the service was even better. I really wish I could remember our servers name because she was a rockstar. Young girl very friendly and I would give her a job if she ever came to Denver.

A large pot of mussels for $5 with no grit... a large pot of clams for $5 with no grit... I couldn't decide so I got both, plus the large steam pot of assorted seafood, was a great value for a seafood lover like myself

Best patio at a Joe's Crab Shack I've ever seen! Wonderful to sit outside and see a lot of people using the bike and running path along the edge of the Allegheny River!
