When you dine at Joe's Crab Shack, you leave giggly and excited. LOVE the dance numbers and the casual feel of it. So personable that if you went alone you would not feel alone. There is no way you could not love this place unless you are

Very bad experience. Manager Amber Rider was rude. Won't ever go back again. Atmosphere like a freak show, stop to sing/dance every 15 min, had fake bride and groom ceremony etc. Creepy! Crab Nachos were soggy so we asked to have them

This place is ok... it was great when I was younger... but now, it's a little hectic. most of the food is fried - too much for me. For people who like fried food, it's a good place to go... it's VERY heavy food. If you have people in town, it's a good place to take them because it's different... but... they don't take reservations... so you'll have to wait.

A few years ago this place had a great menu, good food and was lots of fun. Went last week and will never go back. It's no better than Chuckie Cheese.

We went to Joe's Crab Shack for a birthday party recently. I had one of the worst dining experiences of my life. People in our party received their food any where from 8pm (first) to 9:15 (last). The food was lousy, except for the crab which was o.k. The service was a joke. Our waiter, Andrew, actually tried to flirt with a couple attractive women in our party who were there with their husbands. At 10 pm I gratefully exited this tacky, loud establishment and took a breath of much needed fresh air. I would not eat there again if you paid me to.

Pros: View

Cons: Loud; mediorce food; poor service

We went to Joe's with another family and had a nice time on a busy Friday night. The setting is good for kids and the views are outstanding with the harbor steps away. Our cocktails were excellent, the food ok and the service poor. All were in line with the expections that we had going in. Good spot for a busy family type dinner with kids.

i have been to joes crab shack that are boring and just like any other restaurant. but this joe's is always fun and the servers are always friendly and knowledgable. the food is pretty good and the atmosphere is fun. this is a great place to go for someones birthday because they make people get dressed up in crazy outfits and dance around the restaurant. the servers also dance like once every half hour or something. its very fun!

The staff is very friendly and accomodating. Great value and great location! Yes, it is a bit noisy, but it's a family restaurant. If you want fine dining, elegance, peace and quiet, go elsewhere! We enjoy bringing visiting family and friends here and they all loved it!

Pros: price, quality , quantity

Cons: noisy, busy on weekends/nite

Joe's crab shack is a lot of fun to dine at. The food is very good. Crab is their specialty and it is good. The service is pretty good. They get really busy at night so the service can get a little bogged down at times, but they always have a great attitude. It's a great place to go with your friends and have a few drinks. It's good food for a good price.

If you are a stuffy old stick in the mud then this is not a place for you. This is a fun, sometimes loud place to eat and drink(small bar area). Our hotel recommended this hotel and I'm glad they did. The food was great and the waiter was friendly and helpful. All the servers dance around the restaurant to fun music every half hour, lots of fun. There is a great view of the harbour and very nice at sunset.

This place is great to go with a big group of friends. The servers put on a dance for you every half hour. It's the best, I do not know anyone who does not like this place. There is always a wait but you can call ahead and put your name down.

Talk about a party while you eat! They have a great bar and the food is "ok". We go mostly for the atmosphere and never leave un-satisfied. The place is ALWAYS packed! You will have to check it out to see what I am talking about! Like most places in Orange County, be prepared to wait (they don't take reservations)!
