Restaurant is located right next to the Jacksonville Beach and its great to walk off the beach and be able to get a drink. Its always packed which kind of sucks, but the seafood is actually good. My wife and I used to go here all the time. Its not the biggest portions for the price, but unlike some other... More

Got to the beach on a cloudy, windy, cold afternoon. Lucky for us, the Crab Shack was in sight! Had good fresh food, cheerful service and it was just what we needed at the end of a long drive

This places way over charges. They were trying a new program of not accepting tips. To do that they raised all the process in their meals ten dollars. That was not a good idea. They try and give you lots of food for the drastic over charged meals. They just fluff the meals with low cost vegetables. On a sunny... More

We had lunch here yesterday. Great sitting on the deck, overlooking the beach. My husband and son enjoyed their food. I ordered Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. I honestly believe what was delivered to table was Caesar Salad with grilled fish. My husband tasted, and agreed. I sent it back. The manager swears it was chicken, but even the texture... More

So many people think that Florida is an exciting tropical destination. It is. When visitors come to the state, they think of sunshine, the ocean, the tropical breeze and seafood. Enter Joe's Crab Shack on the Jacksonville beach. Great location with all of the above with one major exception. They are manipulating you. Order almost any menu dish other than... More

I have gone to Joe's with tourists that visit here several times. I warn them in advance that this is a chain seafood restaurant and as such, it is ok for food. Where this restaurant excels, is the location. It is right on the beach with a spectacular view. Parking is good and the staff is variable. I have had... More

We love crab and we especially love Joe's! This location is always spot on. Food is well prepared and they take pride in their service. Right on the beach with awesome views from the deck outside. Great location for a walk on the beach after dinner.

We were excited to sit outside on the deck overlooking the beach. The service was excellent and the fish was so delicious that we actually ended up going back a second time a couple days later.

My husband took me to Joe's Crab Shack to celebrate my 71st birthday where I nearly froze to death. It was so cold that my teeth actually started to chatter. The waitress was wonderful, the food became cold before i could eat it and the coffee was cold before I could drink. I was told they didn't have heat because... More
