Historically, my family and I have had great experiences with Joe's Crab Shack, especially in coastal areas. We regrettably walked right by many one of a kind restaurants, which we have always enjoyed trying when in a new city, to get to Joe's only to find a beautifully located restaurant with awesome views from the patio, with below average customer service. The meal was average, which is not what I've come to expect from a restaurant located on the waterfront, and we still can't understand why it took 20 minutes for our drink order to be taken in a restaurant that appeared to be at less than half capacity. The best thing about this restaurant was the view. Not ready to give up on Joe's yet, but it's a wrap for this location.

Beautiful view of the river and shipping traffic on the dockside patio, but they also have a large inside bar and seating area. Right on river street where all the bar action is, service was great, view was great, food was great, my wife and I split the shrimp platter. Lots of food for two. Also I had a Stella draft that was served in a chilled mug that was huge.

Consistently the worst service at any restaurant I've ever been to in Savannah. I should add that I've worked in the service industry for 10 years as well as lived in Savannah for over 8 years so I have eaten and drank at many places in town. This is the only place I have ever refused to tip because the service was so bad. There is nobody to great you and once seated you could wait anywhere between 10-20 minutes (happened at the bar too, no bartender anywhere in sight) waiting for any staff to notice you. The manager was also nowhere to be seen. I work downtown and I am constantly asked for restaurant recommendations. Needless to say when anyone asks I'll make sure to steer them clear of this train wreck of an establishment. If I could give zero stars I would!!!

This was a place that my wife had to stop at so we did..."yes dear." The food was good and the service was even better.
