The end of an era. We used to come here every year for family birthdays (all grown ups), but it's been on the decline, and we've decided this was our last time. Service was soooo grumpy (Hey can we sit over there, "no, those tables aren't supposed to be that way. - empty restaurant). "I will put the appetizer in... More

It's loud -- the staff would rather be anywhere else - it takes a while to get served -- and as a bonus, the higher than should be price tag accompanies an always disappointing meal. I am stumped that the doors stay open..

On Wednesday evening, July 27, 2016, my wife and I joined my son and his wife at Joe’s Crab Shack to celebrate his birthday. Joe’s was having their special on Queen Crab on Wednesday evenings, so my son ordered that. I had narrowed down my choices to two or three ideas and finally decided to have the Queen Crab, too....

Terrible fried food. All the items were subpar. Will never go back. Service and environment were ok. But the food itself was just horrible.

I'm from the West Coast, so my expectations weren't particularly high for a seafood restaurant so far away from the ocean, but I found myself pleasantly surprised! The Crab Cake Sandwich was super tasty, as were the coconut shrimp (which my mom had), and we shared a delicious "Sea Turtle Sundae" for dessert. We ended up eating here twice (as... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant byt were not very impressed. Staff were friendly but we found the seafood bland, watery without much taste. The seafood bucket was very disappointing with average quality seafood and high prices. We will not return.

Ate here with my son after the car show. Being in Utah it is nothing like eating at ones in the south with the wrap around porch and sand play ground for the kids. Food was really good. Staff was excellent and to my surprise this is a no tip restaurant. I would rather pay a little more for the... More

Ya know, not a top notch sea food restaurant but really good all the same. Kids love the desserts and drink options and we love the steam puts. Be were the arctic bay is spice and to us tastes similar to Cajun seasoning which we didn't like. No spices for us. So just watch it. Lots of fried stuff for... More

My friend and I decided to come here after attending an expo at the South Towne Expo Center. For a Saturday afternoon it was dead. We were seated promptly and were perusing the menu. The table seated behind us must have been friends of one of the waitresses because the waitress stood and chatted with them for some time. As... More
