We put our name in with ..well..I will call him billy the 4 year old host, and he said about a 20 minute wait we said OK, about 40 minutes later we asked the same exact guy how much longer and he asked our name, and he said we weren't on the list ..So that means he didn't put our... More

I used to love this friggin place nad years ago they changed owners. Got in an arguement with the waitress about the butter, portions, service, and anything else you can imagine. Asked to speak with a manger and was told they were too busy. Really? Found out they had new owners. Finally after a few years of boycotting the place... More

Nice place to try seafood. I always wanted to try their crab dinners and finally made the trip there to see what it was like. I was not disappointed at all. Most of the crab dinners came with some type of sausage that I wasn't crazy about but I guess you can substitute it for something else. Crab and Lobster... More

Had dinner there after shopping at the Great Lakes Crossing Mall. We had the assorted crab legs recommended by the waitress they were excellent.

We come to this Joe's Crab Shack location several times a year. It seems to have gone downhill for the past few years. The menu keeps getting smaller and smaller, the food is nowhere as good as it was five years ago, and the service is not as good as it has been. Don't get me wrong, our server was... More

This was my first visit to this chain, and I can assure you it will be my last. I ordered the shrimp Po Boy sandwich. It was overloaded with tiny shrimp that had way too much batter to the point that's all you could taste. I couldn't even fold it to make a sandwich. My daughter and her friend ordered... More

Made a return second-chance visit after a not-so-great experience the first time around. My major issue is the super high music volume. Was unable to converse with my tablemates as well as waitstaff. Food was just o.k., nothing special. Would never go here for a date or business meal because of the noisy environment. No reason to return at all.

Thank Joseph L
