“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Took our kids to Disneyland for spring break and decided to try Joe's crab shack because we've never been. The service was good and the food was good also. What really touch my heart was that they were having a fundraiser for autism speaks and all of the staff were dressed in shirts to support autism. My seven yr. old daughter has autism and it was very refreshing to see a establishment support a disability. Sorry that this review was mainly about the fundraiser but as a proud parent of a child with autism, it was great to see what a wonderful job the staff a Joe's crab shack did!

Just a quick side note: The music was a little loud when we visited. My 7 yr. old was with us and she has sensory issues because of her autism. She is very high functioning so she can be distracted with something that she enjoys (She had her ipad with her :)) But for other people with autism the volume of the music might be a issue.

“Enjoyable but pricey”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Better than Red Lobster and we likes better than Bubba Gumps. Food service was good but took a long time for our bar drinks.

Family of five and all meals were done well and came out in timely manner.

We look forward to going back.
