My husband had fried shrimp and hush puppies and fries. They were good also. They are raising money for autism for the month of April.... More

The food was delicious and nobody went away hungry! Had the Joe's Classic Steampot for two and it was delicious! Being Italian, wasn't fond of the sausage that came with the meal but... More

Claws are fresh and delicious, and Joe's has a variety of crab. Pretty good size menu. Apps are different and tasty. Big parking lot.
