Food was hot, we got in a timely manner. Ashley, our server was awesome. If you're in SA, stop in at this one for sure; they will take good care of you :)

“Not up to JCS standards”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I have been eating at Joe's for the better part of two decades. We have eaten at many locations from Phoenix, AZ to Jacksonville, FL. This is the 1st time that we have left less than satisfied. I had the grilled flavor of the original steam pot and the flavor was very good. Portions were smaller than I have ever gotten and left hungry. Our granddaughter ordered the Shrimply grilled shrimp from the kids menu. I thought she was being finicky when she said they tasted burnt so I tried one. She was right. They were so tough I had to get a toothpick. Wife said her grilled corn wasn't "done". The waitress apologized for the tough shrimp and service was good overall. We will continue to "Eat at Joe's". Just not this location.

The food was very good and the service was prompt and attentive. The wait person was very animated and personable, which I always appreciate in a server.

“racists”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

We were so excited to eat here because we had heard so many good things. We were greeted nicely at the door-escorted to a nice table and given menus. There were only 2 other families seated (anglos) We sat for 20 minutes or more and no one ever came near our table except for the waitress who was cleaning the table next to ours. She never made eye contact with us. There were many employees walking around waiting on the other 2 tables or just chit chatting. When we finally got up to walk out, the hostess smiled and held the door open for us. I will never go to Joe's crab shack anywhere in the world!!
