Great atmosphere, however the crab is not as fresh as I would of liked and they do not devein their shrimp. Our waiter was hilarious and very attentive to our needs. I am from Washington state so I guess I am a little picky when it comes to my seafood as I am a avid crabber on the Puget Sound.

I am a seafood lover but during this trip I was on a limited budget. Guess what - even though I could not splurge I was able to get a good and filling meal. The crab cakes contained crab - if you have ever eaten a dry crab cake then you know what a big deal it is to eat... More

This used to be one of my favorite Saturday afternoon lunch spots. After today's visit it's not likely I'll go back. It was such a disappointment. The menu has completely changed & now offers a whole lot fewer options. I'm not sure when this change was made but I'm totally disappointed in the decision.

- We had fish, lobster and shrimps - all were delicious - Price range was appropriate - Staff were helpful - Got a surprise birthday wish - it was different and unique in their style - Outside seating arrangements were available, but we chose to dine inside

No waiting, nice and quiet atmosphere, and very pleasant and attentive staff. Food was cooked with just the right amount of everything. Prices were pleasing as well. Will be visiting again.

We decided the crab pots were a bit too expensive, so we all went for different fried shrimp platters. The shrimp were large, perfectly breaded and cooked and delicious. Probably the best I have ever eaten in a chain restaurant of any type.

I especially like crab of any kind. My children asked me where I wanted to go for my 71st birthday. They would take me anywhere that we did not have to fly to. They took me to Joe's Crab Shack since we hadn't been there in awhile. The meal that my daughter-in-law and I had was the Queen combo, Crab,... More

Fast service, respectful, friendly staff. The price is moderate and the food is not bad for a chain restaurant. Live music and cold beer.

In the overwhelming supply of restaurants in the Fayetteville area, Joes Crab shack stands out. It's large dining space lends itself to quick seating and the service is quick and friendly. They accomdated a toddler very well. The Snow crab bucket was large and had 4 clusters, exactly what I wanted for the price. The garlic herb steam was very... More
