I ordered the boil with crab legs and shrimp which was good but my son ordered the alfredo pasta with chicken. The chicken was burned. We sent that back and he got chicken tenders and one of those was under cooked! Part of the food was good and the service was great, but it wasn't worth the $100 ticket

This was a typical set up for a Joe's Crab Shack. My husband and I arrived about an hour and half before closing so there was no wait. Our server Jessie was polite and helpful and took our order quickly. The food, in my opinion, was no where near the best seafood I've had. It honestly tasted no different than... More

My sister and I went to Joe's Crab Shack to eat on 3/9/17. Unfortunately, it was a night with tornado warnings in the area. When we entered the restaurant, we were immediately notified of the possibility we would need to go to a safe area. The waitresses made sure all guests were seated away from the windows. About 20 minutes... More

I had a quick and delicious meal alone while sitting at the bar. The place was packed, but I still was able to have a great view thanks to their walls of windows. I was served quickly and the food was good.

Had a fun lunch here with clam chowder and then the crab boil. Servings are large so my husband I shared the meal. More than enough to fill without stuffing. Enjoyed the bibs that the waitress wrote on for us. I was queen of the crabs. Dirty work cracking open the crab and peeling the prawns but makes for a... More

We eat here almost everyt time we're here. Always good. Hubby had the coconut shrimp and I had the grilled shrimp. Great family place or date night. Had a table looking over Lake Taneycomo that has great rainbow trout, but was too cool for me. Waiters are very attentive and fun. See you next trip!

Was a little dissapointed with the visit. Ordered the Sharkbite & they were out of sharks. Ordered the Jim Beam steampot & the portions seemed a lot smaller than last time I ordered it. That kinda upset me, especially for the price they charge. Everything tasted fine at least. Probably won't be back again.

We had a great waitress. She even wrote some humor notes on our bibs. The shrimp in a tub was excellent. So was the polish like sausage. Tops.

Greeted by friendly hostess and even more friendly waiter, Shawn. My husband had the all you can eat shrimp meal (Wednesdays) and I had a steamer bowl. Both were huge and delicious and my husband never asked for seconds. Neither of us could find room for dessert which was sad as they sounded delicious as well. Shawn was a fantastic... More
