I enjoy Joe's Crab Shack. They have good food and there is a great view of the Columbia River and the Interstate Bridge. The downside of the place is that it doesn't always seem the cleanest, and the food seems overpriced for what it is....More

7/15 a beautiful sunny day, we wanted to eat outside so decided to try this place. What a mistake. Waited about 15 mins for seating; our table was three rows back from the railing so really didn't have much of a view of the river....More

The Dungeness crab dinner was very good. Our server, Sammy, was top notch and the manager even came around to check on everything. We sat on the deck over looking the river - a great view. Overall glad we went to Joe's for dinner.

The lobster and steam pots are delicious. This is a very casual place and often gets quite loud. They offer seating outside where you get a gorgeous view of the Columbia river!

For a casual seafood dinner, as in cracked crab and some cold beers, Joe's Crab Shack is the place. I've read mixed reviews on this Joe's location, some good , some not very good at all. I've been four times to this same Vancouver Washington...More

My 2 favorite things are the steamer pots and the view. For me, a steamer pot is usually 2 meals. The river view is great. Always a good time with the family
