Probably not 5 star but very good. Casual atmosphere and crab. Can't go wrong. Been there several times.

We stopped here for a late lunch after accompanying a friend for an MRI at Anschutz medical center. Several of the review on this location were less than I would have liked but we gave it a try and were not disappointed. We got there about 3Pm on a Sunday and were seated immediately. Our waitperson was there very quickly... More

This place is not bad if you are looking for quick seafood near by. There are a lot of other places I would pick first. Prices are reasonable.

I went to Joe's with a lg. group of people. The service was good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Everyone said their selection was very good. A few thought the prices were a little high.

Terri was my server, she made me feel like I wasn't dining alone. She brightened my day and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The staff as a whole is awesome!

I've been to several Crab Shack franchises around the US...mostly because locals wanted to go there for a quick in and out and some seafood. They were not awful but they are not seafood heaven. Kids and older adults may love the lively atmosphere and the menu selections. If you're looking for anything above frozen seafood and fried options look... More

I stopped in for an early dinner on a week night. The restaurant was not busy but service was slow. The Coconut Shrimp was adequate but nothing special, nor were the sides. Perhaps I just went on a bad night, but I was not impressed with the staff or the food for the price. I have not been back even... More

Cross another favorite off my list of places to dine. Gluten free menu/options was a piece of paper with several items crossed off. I thought of taking a picture of the floor under our table but it was beyond gross, couldn't look at it. Menu has been downsized to a couple of pages (mine was torn up) missing some of... More

The food is really good as always. Waitress was really nice and friendly. We had two little kids with us and she was really good with them.
