The Beach location was excellent. I got white glove attention from the wait staff. But the shrimp and snow crab legs were sub par. It was Very disappointing to be eating bad seafood on the edge of the ocean. That was an oxymoron moment. The...More

Our waitress was wonderful, the atmosphere is nice, what you’d expect. The service was fast and efficient. The food was “good enough” but overpriced in my opinion. Our bill was 135.00 for 4 people, but I knew it would be high going in. Not complaining,...More

We had so much shrimp! 4 ways. Lots of shrimp! And oh so good. All you could eat and more for $19.99. We've ate at Joes many times and liked it. So thanks again.

First of all, this is a cool location for Joe's, right out on the water on Jacksonville Beach. Really picturesque. Food here is pretty good. We had the crab nachos, which are nice and big. They weren't the best nachos I've ever had, but they...More

When I went to Joe's Crab Shack, I was too full to eat because I had just eaten at the Maple Biscuit Company; yet, I wanted to relax with a refreshing drink on the beach. I did see people order the Crab legs, and they all... More
