We figured "just another Joe's" but we were wrong. It's in a great locations and we sat outside listening to the ocean and having a wonderful experience. Food was great and service was great! Highly recommended

The service and energy at this restaurant is wonderful. Our waitress Maggie was excellent. The food is good and typical for a Joe's Crab Shack, but the wait staff and overall dynamic is what made it a very fun evening. Two of us got the East Coast platter and one ordered salmon. All of the meals were well prepared. We... More

We sat on the patio, great view. The drinks were so good, the food was good too. We were worried that it would be sub par chain food, it wasn't!! We enjoyed everything, even took some out of state friends there later.

It is a chain restaurant, but given that it is on the beach, my review improves. The food is adequate but the view is spectacular.

Not impressed. A lot of hype, but just another chain restaurant that's average. Atmosphere was great, but food was not good and prices were very expensive.

Our bartender, she was great. Always checking on us. Phenomenal view outside of the beach with nice ocean breezes. We ordered the sampler which was great except for the calamari. We then ordered the dungeness crab and for the price, just didn't seem to be enough. I think there was only half of it, at least that's what it looked... More

We have passed by this place in JAX beach many times. I've been curious so I drag my partner in with me for lunch. The minute I read the menu, I knew I should not have come in. For context, we are foodies who enjoy excellent food regardless of the ambience or the lack there of. This place did not... More

Joe's Crab Shack is all over the country but this one was in a perfect location. It was right on Jacksonville Beach with an outside balcony bar. The views were spectacular. We only intended to have a snack but ended up splitting the coconut shrimp. Everything was perfect. The staff was super and friendly. It was a great place to... More

My husband and I chose to eat at Joe's Crab Shack on the beach as we were looking for a casual place to eat simple seafood. We were familiar with Joe's and had eaten at them in the past (not in Jacksonville). I was disappointed in the quality of the food for the money we paid. We ate outside on... More
