Aweful aweful, we avoided Joes since they remodeled because it has always been terrible service but we didnt imagine things could have gotten worse. The food is over priced, the music is so loud you can't even talk to the person sitting

We went here today and the service was awful! They completely screwed up our order so we spent an extra 30 minutes waiting for half the food the table ordered. The manager only wanted to give us a free appetizer to say sorry but she had us

This is what you call vacation?

Have you eaten at the Joe's in the city where you live? It's just as boring here as it is there. This is yet another Landry's Chain cookie cutter, carbon copy, manufactured over and over again, again, again, again.... Dine here or in Katy at the mall.

Why on earth would you travel anywhere to eat at a chain restaurant? Do you think maybe it defeats the purpose of paying $4.00 a gallon gas to go somewhere? By all means, go to the Landry's and Red Lobsters of the world IF your couch is your favorite place on earth.

Or, if you choose to not live while you're dead..... Get Out There!! The world is a great place to get out an experience!!

Pros: Not a Cool, Local Place. Absolutely nothing notable about it, especially the food

I had always wanted to go to a Joe's Crab Shack and now I'm wondering why. The food is very pedestrian and not worth the price. My family and I were completely disappointed, although my daughter said the fried shrimp was "OK." Why bother when Gaido's is just down the street? The crab cake was OK as well, not great, and the blackened Mahi was....well, OK.

Our recent Saturday morning experience was very disappointing. We didn't expect much food-wise, but I think 'slap-dash' is a good word to describe our experience. Staff were forced to wear costumes that day, and it took a while for them to get ready, 'warm up' and get with it. We didn't feel the restaurant was ready to open. Based on this admittedly only one experience, the Houston locations are better IMHO, which doesn't say much for this tourist trap.

Pros: Good parking

Cons: I know they're there somewhere....

I went to Joes with some friends and my family during a day trip down to the beach. We got there around 8:00pm and had a 1.5hr wait for a table. The wait wasn't too too bad cause we let the kids play at the playground while we sat and talked.

The waitress was nice, but somewhere something got mixed up and they kept trying to give us stuff that another table across from us had ordered.

The food was delicious, I had a popcorn shrimp meal and my kids had the coconut shrimp kids dish. I took a taste of their shrimp and loved it, my son who never cleans his plate ate all of his and some of my daughters.

PROS: delicious food
CONS: long wait time, to get a table and to get your order

We moved to Galveston from the NorthWest, where Seafood is very expensive when you are out to dinner. Joe's was a relief. The staff is very friendly and fun, especially when they do their dances. All three of our children beg to go to Joe's. Texas sized shrimp comes in all kinds of flavors. Go to Galveston and try a skewer of grilled shrimp with a cold Texas sized beer and be amazed at the beauty of the blue gulf waters!

This place has a good atmosphere. I have recomended it to many of my friends and family who loved it. The food, while being slightly expensive, is very good. The wait staff is very nice and attentive to your needs.

How this restaurant chain stays in business is beyond me. The food is bland and overpriced. The atmosphere is loud and garish. The waitstaff is inattentive and have to be flagged down for the smalles of requests, such as refilling glasses, etc. If you want good seafood at reasonable prices and a pleasant meal, there are PLENTY of other seafood restaurants to choose from! Ignore that flashing sign and keep driving!
