The restaurant has a great environment, the decoration is unique. I loved the food it was delicious, the service was excellent! I think this is a nice place to go if you want to eat great but casual.

Where do start, we have never had a worse experience as the one today. Happy because the parking lot was not full and no wait we went in. Service was slow, only 2 family's in the entire restaurant. The menu has little options and prices are way to high. Our server could have picked up his pants instead of sagging... More

First this review is for the Joe’s Crab Shack in Lewisville, TX. I looked on line to find a restaurant with something different to eat. I saw on their on line menu that they had Paella so I decided to take my wife there. We lived in Spain for 5 years and were very familiar with Paella and liked it.... More

The staff was more interested in socializing than in service. About half-way through the meal, they blared out music and the entire staff encircled the tables, including the hostesses, and for about 5-10 (seemed like much longer) minutes they line danced and laughed among themselves. Not only could we not get our check but we also saw several couples and... More

The food was great! It was still hot and the portion was very large. Going to take my family this weekend for a nice dinner out.

It's been more than 10 years since I've visited a Joe's Crab Shack. Everyone, including a toddler enjoyed their seafood. No wonder crab is Joe's signature item. They do it best. All types of seasonings are available. Old Bay is my favorite. The food is served very hot which is a good thing as it takes awhile to finish a... More

We stopped at this Joe's Crab Shack on our way home from a weekend get away. We were there right about opening time on a Sunday morning. The staff was very attentive and the food was great.

The place was a-hoppin'. There must have been several parties going on to judge by the ladies' dresses and flowers at some of the tables. The wait staff were bustling but competent and very cheerful at the same time. Our food was very fast in arriving, and delicious!

If you're looking for inexpensive food for children that is a 'treat' for them, this is the place. If you're looking for good food, keep looking. Tasteless fish, small crab legs, minimal seasoning, and a playground. No one will go home with a tummy ache. Pros: convenient for the area. Cons: tasteless food, cheesy decor
