Description: Joe's Crab Shack offers a variety of favorites from all parts of the sea and shore. From its extensive menu, guests can choose from buckets of seasonal seafood, fried shrimp platters and fish dishes, as well as options from the "mainland" that include steak, sandwiches, and chicken. Guests can indulge in over-sized and creative cocktails, such as the Shark Bite which is playfully garnished with a shark toy. Since its inception, Joe's popularity has stemmed not only from its menu, but also its retail store. With various pieces of merchandise for purchase, including the ever-popular tie-dye T-shirt with the phrase "Peace, Love and Crabs," Joe's has become synonymous with the word "fun."

While staying in the area we went to this location for dinner. Service was great, food was delicious and plentiful. The only downer was that the dance party that usually happens at Joe's Crab Shack locations didn't happen. Probably as a safety precaution during the pandemic but a fun time was had anyway!

I stayed across the street at the Hyatt and walked over Saturday evening to have dinner. I was told there was a 2 hour wait, even though there were several empty tables. Apparently the problem was the absence of adequate staffing. I guess people are willing to stay home and collect $$ off the government instead of getting a job. I went back Sunday to have lunch. No bartender and one waitress. So I got an order to go, Not so great fish and chips and some calamari. Very disappointing.

Not a big seafood fan, but my party was. Let’s say the food looked great! I had a few bites of their dishes and they were yummy! Outdoor seating due to Covid which was alright it was sort of humid that day. Staff was great and overall good experience.
