We had reservation for 27 people at 5'oclock on Saturday March 4th. They did a great job with two girls looking after us and one was training. The food was great and fast service for that many people.

We have always gone to Joe's at the end of our conference and have had excellent service and great food. This year the service was slow, bills were messed up, and the food was mediocre. I hope it was just a bad night. My crab cakes were very dry and I have never had that experience there before. Hopefully next... More

I love, love, love Joe's Crab Shack. I am from Charleston where we can get fresh seafood anytime but we do not have a Joe's there so EVERY time I visit MB, I eat at Joe's.

We have trouble finding gluten free items but Joe's had a good selection. I know it sounds like common sense but if you don't like seafood don't go. My wife does not but thought we would go cause the kids wanted to try it. I love Joe's Crab Shack. She ordered chicken tenders and she said they tasted fishy. Great... More

Joe's has great specialty drinks and appetizers, both of which we enjoyed after walking around and shopping. The relaxed atmosphere and attentive service was great. The crab nachos are so delicious, especially paired with a Category 5 Hurricane cocktail.

We capped off an afternoon of shopping at Barefoot Landing with a quick dinner at Joe's. They had a nice selection of cocktails for the grown-ups and a nice kiddie menu for the little ones. The service was fast, accurate and friendly. Our dinners were delicious and generous in their portion sizes. It was a good place to fill up... More

It's our first night in Myrtle Beach, although it's our third time here. This time we're staying in North Myrtle Beach. Hubby and I were in the mood for seafood. We happened to see Joe's nestled in the Barefoot Landing section along route 17. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has a casual, funky decor. They offer a great selection... More

We tried Joe's Crab Shack for the first time this year while on our annual vacation in Myrtle Beach. We can't wait to come back again. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The portions were great. The food tasted great. The drinks were fun and huge.
