We had a great waitress. She even wrote some humor notes on our bibs. The shrimp in a tub was excellent. So was the polish like sausage. Tops.

Greeted by friendly hostess and even more friendly waiter, Shawn. My husband had the all you can eat shrimp meal (Wednesdays) and I had a steamer bowl. Both were huge and delicious and my husband never asked for seconds. Neither of us could find room for dessert which was sad as they sounded delicious as well. Shawn was a fantastic... More

Our family of five checked out Joe's for the first time, and we really enjoyed ourselves. I really enjoyed the popcorn shrimp, especially since the batter wasn't as heavy as other seafood chains. The hush puppies are tasty, and we appreciated some good options on the kids' menu. We had a nice view near the window, too. We will be... More

Not exactly the first time here, but it was great as always. We had an awesome view of the lake, the server was friendly and kept our drinks full, and the food was great. The dessert especially. I had the s'mores cake and it was fantastic.

We were there during off season, business was slow but the food was great---as always. We go here almost every time we are in Branson. It is on the lake and you can watch the boats and people. The waiters were friendly and efficient .

Joe's is on Branson Landing where entering or leaving we have a wonderful view of the lake, as well as when seated for our meal. The manager is a really neat young man who knows our son. The wait staff is professional and provides snappy, friendly service. Clean, orderly, comfortable, the restaurant has it all and the customer lacks nothing... More

Saturday afternoon ordered shrimp platter and crab feast. Crab was scant and looked like it was just bits and pieces. Hush puppies were first cooking, then burnt and inedible. Service was ok, nothing incredible. Waitress definitely was frustrated, maybe overwhelmed. Restaurant patio was cramped. Overall for price, not worth while. Please tell servers to smile and have them put their... More

We decided to eat at Joe's Crab Shack while shopping at Branson Landing. This was a Saturday night, so we expected it to be busy, which it was. The noise and music was so loud it was really hard to carry on a conversation. Food was just so-so and we wished we would have chosen another place for dinner. Would... More

Fun place to bring the kids to try different seafood, but tends to be noisy. We get the crab pots as they have variety.
