We had a lovely lunch at Joes Crab Shack. It had been so busy the night before we opted not to wait (very hungry after a long drive) but came back to have a late lunch on Saturday. Our server (Shanti) was fantastic. Pleasant, helpful and very efficient. Never obtrusive but there when needed. My Ragin' Cajun Steampot was delivered... More

Food is average on pricey side. Wish I had more options for smaller portions. Server was nice I suppose because the restuarant was empty.

We had a wonderful meal at this Joe's crab shack! Our waiter, Garrick, was awesome, funny but professional! The food was delicious - we each had different meals & each one was delicious! I had Coconut Shrimp & it was wonderful! Thanks for a great time & great meal!

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
