Party your pants off here. Fun Time but Extremely Loud. Pitfall was that the Food was A Little Overcooked. Our shrimp peels stuck to the body of the shrimp and the crab claws were soggy (all of them) But I Would Return. Lots of flavor and I tried their SharkBite drink for $8.99 it did not taste good I almost sent it back.

Ate an early dinner on a Sunday. Three adults and one child equated to about $100. Food was good but portions were smaller that a couple of years ago. Our server was Lavel and he took great care of us.

If you have eaten at a Joe's Crab Shack at another location, it's about the same. This location seems to be a bit louder. Food is good, but if you want to visit with the people you're eating with, this is probably not the place to go.

Our Father's Day meal included 7 of us so when we were told it would be about an hour wait, it wasn't surprising. But once we were finally seated after waiting for that hour, the really bad experience began in earnest. Someone came for our drink orders fairly quickly, but the return for the food order was not nearly as fast. Then we waited nearly an hour for the food to arrive. When it did, there was no silverware on the table and asking for some brought another 10-15 minute wait. By the time the silverware arrived, my brother-in-law's food was cold. Some of us wanted butter for our crab legs. Guess what? Another 5-10 minutes to get that. The shrimp sauce requested never arrived but a cup of ketchup was brought instead. The award for most ridiculous part of the meal went to my sister-in-law. She was served a plate of fried shrimp - nothing else. Where is the rest of the food we asked. It's coming. And so it did. In about 5 minutes a dish of cole slaw arrived. The potato? The crab legs? Well the crab was another 5 minutes and the potato never made it at all. We asked for the manager. It came as no surprise when it took him at least 15 minutes to get to our table and then he basically stood mutely when we explained our concerns. The bartender happened by and asked us how it was going. When we told her our tale, she went to the manager. When the ticket was brought to us, our entire meal was paid except for the alcohol but the manager had said nothing of the kind to us and I have no idea if that was his call or was prompted by the bartender.

We went here for dinner. When we arrived we were told it would be a 15-20 min wait. There were two tables ahead of us to be seated. Ordinarily this would have been okay, but while we were waiting we noticed there were at least 27 empty tables. Really? We left.
