The fast food place for a large variety of seafood. A very large restaurant with an equally large menu and it's always busy

After flying all day, we wanted some seafood. The gals at Hampton Inn chimed in together with Joe's Crab Shack. The correct selection. A very good menu. I went with the bacon-wrapped Southern stuffed shrimp. My wife got a bucket of peel-and-eat shrimp. Excellent dining with Joe's favorably priced house wines. We took home a huge piece of some of...

Ate here twice while visiting the Sunrise area. Just as good as any Crab Shack. Enjoyed the steam pots which were fresh! My favourite was the Cajun New Orleans one! They have a good variety of decadent desserts. The decor as usual was quite "old-fashioned sailor style". Pleasant servers and the impression was that staff always wanted to look after... More

Delicioso!!! A must do and a fun date night! I love crab legs, but believe they should be reasonably priced. I mean, What can one do to them to charge $60? Joe's crab shack has amazing crab legs with a reasonable price and an entertaining staff! Our waitress Christine goes out of her way to ensure you have a very... More

Having a group of 10 expecting to have all you can eat crabs was just horrible with 20-25 mins in between crabs and getting only 1 cluster at a time... Some crabs were so rubbery that you couldn't eat them and still had to wait 20 mins for another one. I have never been at a Joes that was this... More

We never liked the one in Naples, but my wife wanted to try this one. Awful. The server Nikki was terrific, wasn't her fault. My wife crab cakes were very fishy. My fried shrimp were under cooked twice. I asked for the check and Nikki notice I didn't eat the 2nd attempt so she took the meal off the bill.... More
