fun, crazy atmosphere

Most aspects of this restaurant are excellent. The seafood is very tasty, especially if you like fried seafood. But the restaurant itself is what sets Joe’s Crab Shack apart from other seafood restaurants. The whole place is decorated with fun doodads related to the sea, and lots of sea related pictures. You might see a rubber shark hanging from the ceiling, and then a glance left might net you an amusing picture of a crab. The whole place is very amusing to look at, and the restaurant doesn’t seem to take itself very seriously. This place provides excellent food in an environment where most people can just relax and have fun. I also find their seafood pastas to be quite excellent, if you don’t favor the fried delectables.

VERY POOR MANAGEMENT

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 taken off our bill and ordered a more expensive item ($30 crab bucket) in its place since since my son was still hungry. The manager Amber Rider refused to take nachos off and would only give me half credit for the nachos stating it was their corporate policy. So I canceled the crab bucket and went to In and Out Burger. My first clue should have been that Crab Shack parking lot and restaurant was empty on a Friday night and the restaurants next to it (Rusty Pelican , Chart house etc) were packed! Our tab was $90 for 4 of us, apparently they would rather loose a customer over $10 and aren’t interested in making their customers happy. Spend your money some where else!! very

Great sea food

I came here a while back to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The waiters had him dress up like a cow and run around the restaurant with the broom. He was a crackup that night. I love the different seafood dishes. Especially the craw fish and shrimp.

New Orleans Steampot

The new orleans Steampot comes with crawfish, shrimp, andouille sausage, corn, and potatoes. The spices are outstanding.
