It was my birthday and I wanted New England Seafood. I had the Beantown Bake. It was terrific! The food was excellent and enough to take home for another meal. The only disappointment is that they did not give a free birthday dessert. When we asked they said no and that a slice of cake was $7.

Made reservations for a birthday dinner on a Monday night. As I came in to check in, the staff was moving at a snail pace. That should have been clue #1 to how the rest of the evening would transpire. The place was half empty, yet still our service was super slow, took over an hour to get out crab... More

Our waitress Sarah was very helpful. I order the crap pot and there was so much food I had to share. Loved the food here and would stop again if in the area.

Ihave been to many Joes Crab Shacks and this one was better than most. The service was great. There was plenty of food and there was so much food on the crab bucket I had to share.

In the mood for something different decided to stop in.. took a while before a waiter or waitress notice us. I wanted to leave but my husband really wanted to try. Joe 's Crab . My only suggestion is hire more waitress and Waiters and promote the restaurant to bring in more business.

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
