    Pros: Selection of seafood items, fun atmosphere
    Cons: The food isn't great

    Summary: Wonderful selection of seafood and other delights.  Truly a "fun" atmosphere.  But as for ambience?  Well, it's a bit lacking.  And the food?  Some of it is just "ok". I'm talking about Joe's Crab Shack, a chain of ... read more

    Pros: NONE
    Cons: Extremely terrible service

    Summary: Joe's Crab Shack is probably the worst restaurant I have ever been to. When I arrived, it took them TEN minutes before the waitresses noticed my family. So once we finally sat down I had to use the bathroom. Well I don’t know who put water ... read more

    Cons: Nothing

    Summary: I love eating at this place! Joes Crab Shack is a crazy fun restaurant. When my husband, my two small children and myself pulled up to the restaurant, it looked like an old fishing shack on the outside. When we made it inside, it was like somebody had a ... read more

    Pros: Dress like a slob and nobody will notice!
    Cons: ALL SEAFOOD IS FROZEN!

    Summary: I've been reading all sorts of favorable reviews of Joe's Crab Shack here on Epinions, and I can't figure out why the authors penned them. I guess they probably just don't know the difference between fresh or frozen (yecch). I went to Joe's ... read more

    Pros: Great Food, Great Fun! Good Buys
    Cons: none so far

    Summary: In San Antonio we have several "Joe's Crab Shacks" and I have been totally delighted with each and every one. You walk into a melange of wild color and retro 60's decor that immediately cheers you up. Each one is individually ... read more

    Pros: Great food, excellent service
    Cons: A LOOONG Wait every time

    Summary: The tie-dyed shirt said, “Peace, Love and Crabs.” It certainly got my attention. It was a long time before I had the opportunity to visit Joe’s Crab Shack, but I never forgot the brightly colored shirt. When my birthday came around and I got ... read more

  • Mediocre Value in Both Food and Entertainment

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Pretty good variety on the menu
    Cons: Too pricey for what you get and way too noisy

    Summary: Joe's Crab Shack tries to be elegant yet slovenly. It's really neither. It's slightly better than most corporate dining chain restaurants in that it has more focus on its menu owing to the fact that it is principally seafood. The standard ... read more

    Pros: atmosphere is old Key West fishouse look
    Cons: poor quality seafood

    Summary: Joe's Crab Shack is not worth the trip or the money. You would think that a restaurant that advertises by the name of a "crab shack" would offer a better selection of crab entrees. If you enjoy frozen fish and expensive prices (for what ... read more

    Pros: Great food and good prices.
    Cons: You frequently have to wait for a table and it can be noisy.
