The Steampots were incredible. Crablegs were fabulous. Appetizer was good. Cocktails a bit pricey. Our server was brand new and a bit overwhelmed on a Saturday night, but everything worked out. The atmosphere was ok. It was Spring Break, so I pretty much expected it this way. Food was good, will return when it was not as busy!

We tried to eat here three times. They don't take reservations, which is fine, so we called ahead to eat there at 7:15, which was a time recommended by them since they get busier the later it gets. We got there on time and checked in. It was 8:00 and we checked the list. They had skipped over us and... More

We went to Joes Crab Shack for dinner one night this week. We had a great dinner. My oldest boy and I both had the queen crab bucket. The crab was seasoned very good. The crab was slightly over cooked. Overall I would rate a good experience.

Would go here again but would not get the chicken Alfredo or the charbroiled oysters. The dessert, s'mores, was absolutely the best thing we ate on our entire trip. Service was really good.

Hubby and I were in the area and had a taste for some seafood and while I don't favor fast food or franchise restaurant this appeared to by one of the few open for lunch. My hubby ordered the fried shrimp which was very tasty while I opted for the Dungeoness Crab special for $18.99. The portion was small and... More

Meal was mediocre. Waited over 1-1/2 hours to be seated. The restaurant had 12 empty tables. The hostess informed us they were for call ahead & reservations. Well the entire 1-1/2 wait they sat empty. Would not go back or suggest this to anyone.

In town for a couple of days and always wanted to try this place. There are none near where I live in Mobile, AL (hint-hint to Joe's Crab Shack). Anyway, drink from the bar was very good and food was also very good. Service was attentive and atmosphere was family friendly. Area is really for summer vacations so not many... More
