I think the title pretty much sums up how the visit went. I had never eaten at a Joe's Crab Shack mainly due to the fact that I don't like seafood, but I am married and she does. The place is dirty, everything was sticky...More

Seemed to have many exotic cocktails but also a regular seafood menu with lots of options and special lunch deals. Food was plentiful and it is nice to sit by the river walk.

I ate here with Friends and Family. We enjoyed the Queen and King crab legs. Dessert was key lime pie. They should give the restaurant a good scrubbing, but the crabs tasted fresh.

Not worth the money at all. I rarely pull out the ol' 1 star rating, but here goes. Had the KJ Bucket. Scallops were so salty, I had to rinse them to eat them. Mussels were siting on top of the liquid, so they were...More
