Joe's was good for seafood lovers but is now gone. It is a chain so you might find it elsewhere. Is there another way to let you know it is gone. This seems like a waste.

The main focus here is on crab legs which are served soaking in huge amounts of salt. Why would anyone go here when locally owned Reel Seafood is one mile away?
