The workers, servers are very kind and entertaining, but there is nothing special for the prices at this restaurant. The fried shrimp are tasteless. The atmosphere is welcoming and entertaining, but the food is just average.

My husband brought me for a late BDay surprise. The food was excellent! We ordered a pot steamer and it was amazing! The wait was long, but we sat at the bar and received excellent service. Will definitely be back!!!

We went to Joe's Crab Shack on the late June 2017. It rained badly on the night. We went to many seafood restaurants in Destin. The lines were at least one hour wait. We ordered the fish and chip to go at Joe's Crab Shack....More

If I remember,there is a large parking lot beside the building. Might want to call and see if campers allowed,especially if really full. We were there in Winter.
