We had fish & chips here. It's a great restaurant. Was busy on the night we went, but they had a table left. Highly recommended.

If you like the beach, you will love this spot! Joe's Crab Shack is a few feet away from the water. We usually sit outside enjoying the great appetizers and cocktails! Fun for the whole family a great place to relax and enjoy the view.

Worst dining experience in years! Waited over 30 minutes for someone to come to our table and then only because we started waving people down. Slow, drinks not as ordered. Shrimp wasn’t cleaned and vegetables were way over cooked. Talked with the manager twice -...More

We (a party of three) waited for 45 minutes to be seated, which was no problem. It took almost an hour for someone to come to our table to take our order, a problem. Then, the server Jana, repeatedly got our orders wrong. In the...More
