Our server, Caitlin, was right on top of our every need. She was upbeat and professional as she served us some great seafood. The location is great, and views are perfect.

Waitress there are sooo nice, at some part while dinning they started dancing, it was cool. Food is delicious but I'm not used to the way they prepare the rice, it does not mean it's bad quality, stuffed schimp and Calamari rings are delicious and beer is cheap!

The place gets a 3 because of the service, the waiter was awesome and made wearing a bib fun! My food and my friends food was really good, but we ordered the bucket of crab legs (can't go wrong with that). The other 2 people we were with ordered other items, one ordered shrimp, the other crab cakes and both... More

Paper towel napkins, very large menu, choices. CRAB!! Yum. Sharing multiple dishes is a great idea. We were 4 people and we had stuffed mushrooms, garlic mussels, crab sandwich and crab nachos. We all left very stuffed and satisfied.

It was about 11:30 am when we stumbled in here because the breakfast place we went to had a 2 hour wait. So Joe's was close. We were seated with a nice view. Once we ordered the food came promptly. The food was very tasty and the service was good. They also had awesome fruity drinks. It's a fun light... More

Went there for a afternoon lunch, had some shrimp tacos and seafood sampler dish. Tacos were excellent but cheese sauce was pretty spicy. Service good, great atmosphere right on water. 1st time here would recommend

The cedar salmon made me sick the cedar taste was overwhelming. The service was a little slow but it was a busy night.

I gotta admit that ambience plays big role when it come to dining out. While the seafood are fresh and not bad at all, the stunning view of Long Beach Marina is the ultimate spice for the treat. Now, get a Bucket of delicious seasoned Shrimp and Joe's Classic Steampot, get carried away with the view while having great time... More

Was my first time visiting Joe's Crab Shack. Looked like a fun place. I'm a southern boy so I like my crawfish. So I ordered The Orleans with a pound of crawfish on the side. What I got was a overcooked chewy crawfish with poorly seasoned vegetables. It was so overcooked the claws were all popped off in this pile... More

We took 8 picky family members top Joe's for a little celebration after our daughter's graduation from Long Beach State University on a Friday afternoon. We had called ahead and the had a nice widow table waiting for us with a very nice view of the harbor. Very attentive service, and everyone loved their food! Definitely will go here again... More
