The Dungeness BBQ crab is amazing, with corn on the Cobb and potatoes. Order it with a Modelo beer with tobasco, salt and lime and you're set.

I imagine that Joe's competes for the younger and more casual-dining slice of the same demographic that Red Lobster appeals to: people who want affordable seafood and are willing to settle for frozen. Joe's is more likely to appeal to those who have kids and/or...More

We've enjoyed Joe's in Colorado, California, Nevada, and now Sandy Utah. This location certainly was up to what we expected, and we'll be back for sure. Looks like some prior people may have had issues, but that isn't always the fault of the restaurant. It...More

It's loud -- the staff would rather be anywhere else - it takes a while to get served -- and as a bonus, the higher than should be price tag accompanies an always disappointing meal. I am stumped that the doors stay open..

Terrible fried food. All the items were subpar. Will never go back. Service and environment were ok. But the food itself was just horrible.

Their menu online does show that they sell Whole Maine Lobster, however they do not list prices. It may be because Lobster us usually sold as a Market Price and each location more than likely has a different scale they work... More

I don't think I have ever seen all you can eat crab. I agree with Eric T. There maybe all you can eat shrimp but it is a promotional sale and so you have to keep an eye out for it.

I don't believe that they do. I have seen specials throughout the year that do include all you can eat shrimp. The buckets and steam-pots have quite a bit in them though, and are very reasonably priced.
