We stopped at this Joe's on our way to drop off our kids at DIA. We have eaten at Joe's across the country and overall this one was as familiar as the others. The thing that did set this one apart was the service. Even though the place was busy we were seated quickly and promptly served. The waiter was... More

We love Joe's! Our waitress was okay. She forgot to bring us a few things and then seemed to get annoyed by her own double trips coupled with our requests for extra stuff but she was still pleasant overall. The food was delicious! We shared everything. There wasn't any dancing or celebrations on this night though. That's one of the... More

One of our sources for good fish and chips in the south Aurora area, the Dusty Boot, suddenly and without notice took them off the menu and did not bother to reply to my e-mails sent to either the southern Aurora restaurant or the parent restaurant near Dillon, Colorado asking if this was a permanent decision. So, adios Dusty Boot!... More

We stopped here for a late lunch after accompanying a friend for an MRI at Anschutz medical center. Several of the review on this location were less than I would have liked but we gave it a try and were not disappointed. We got there about 3Pm on a Sunday and were seated immediately. Our waitperson was there very quickly... More

This place is not bad if you are looking for quick seafood near by. There are a lot of other places I would pick first. Prices are reasonable.

I went to Joe's with a lg. group of people. The service was good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Everyone said their selection was very good. A few thought the prices were a little high.

Terri was my server, she made me feel like I wasn't dining alone. She brightened my day and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The staff as a whole is awesome!

I've been to several Crab Shack franchises around the US...mostly because locals wanted to go there for a quick in and out and some seafood. They were not awful but they are not seafood heaven. Kids and older adults may love the lively atmosphere and the menu selections. If you're looking for anything above frozen seafood and fried options look... More
