We had a waiter that was the best, most attentive guy. He helped us save money by telling us what kind of crab is the most meaty to order. It was very clean and food was awesome. Can't wait to go back again soon.

One of my coworkers wanted to eat crab, so with the help of Trip advisor we found this rest. The line was huge, so we waited 20min. They were able to accommodate us, and our server was very good. My four star review is related to the food. We had a large portion of calamari and shrimp, the crab, and... More

I'm not sure why we keep thinking Joe's will get better but we keep driving up from Lincoln to eat here. This last time was horrible. We both ordered the snow crab buckets and got pretty much ripped off on the amount of crab. A couple years ago Joe's was a great place for crab buckets, now you get about... More

Get a steampot: it's the best value. There are plenty of options available. There are tons of different cocktails to choose from too. Shark bite is to my favorite! The atmosphere is fun. This is now a no tipping establishment: so if you /want/ to tip being cash.

I went there with my sisters, it was a bit cold, but the service was good and the food was yum. Would definitely recommend and go again.

Food was awesome - tasty seafood, great portions, and everything was hot, well-seasoned, and exactly as expected! However the service staff did not want to be there and it showed. I have never before been in the situation of knowing that all the employees of a restaurant would rather have been somewhere else, but that was definitely true this time.... More

I was a single and they put me back in the far corner all by myself. Just because I'm eating by myself that mean I want to be in the middle of nowhere. Waitress was OK would stand there and stare at me for a long time was a little uncomfortable. The food was OK not the best in the... More

Wanted to go some place different. It was just OK. Had the calamari and it was good. We split the crab cake dinner. Not what I expected. The crab cakes were flat as a pancake. The coleslaw was very good. It was quite a wait between our drinks, the appetizer and our meal. If we go again, we will try... More

I was staying at a nearby hotel and Joe's Crab Shack, a P.F. Chang, and a Cheesecake Factory were all conveniently adjacent to Westroads Mall next door. My dining companion expressed an interest in Joe's and I'd never eaten at one, so figured "Why not?" Monday nights are usually slow at restaurants. Moreover, Anthony Bourdain warns never order seafood on... More
