This was a really good deal for Happy Hour and with a Fabulous view of the river! We loved the peel and eat shrimp and a nice selection of beers.

Very slow service. Food was not up to par. I expected more and better food for the price that we paid.

Great place to have lunch by the river and watch the boats go by. The wait staff is excellent. The food is very good. You won't be disappointed. Great location by the outside Market. Outside and inside dining.

Joe's Crab Shack is a chain restaurant that's just above a fast-food place. We (a couple) had steam boil for two, and the portions were large, with plenty of crab legs and a decent quantity of shrimp. The seasoning was OK, but the corn and...More

We were looking for seafood but not necessarily shellfish and this seemed to give the best variety on River Street. Blackened mahi was very good as was the grilled salmon. Said it came with seasonal veg which turned out to just be broccoli. The restaurant...More
