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."

We were looking for a table right on the River Walk, but not on the sidewalk, so we spotted one here. We enjoyed happy hour drinks, boiled shrimp, and Great Balls of Fire off the appetizer menu. Everything tasted good, but the shrimp was overcooked. Great location, though!

We ate here a few years back. This time, 4 of us had fish and chips and a shrimp combo. I’ve had better fried fish, but their batter is terrific, light, crisp and tasty. Fries were fries, nothing special. Lobster basque tasted tart, lemony, unlike any bisque I had ever tasted. Sent it back to the kitchen. Service was quick and efficient. Overall, a pleasant, tasty lunch. Recommended.

Shrimp was outstanding. However fries were not crisp, coleslaw had been sitting around.. brown & not fresh. Service: had to flag someone down for more water.

We were visiting the riverwalk with family on 8/18/20 and decided to give it a try. It wasn't busy. To start my granddaughter ordered a Dr pepper, easy. It was flat. When the waitress brought another glass it was only carbonation. My husband ordered the fish, fries and shrimp. Fries tasted old so did the shrimp,, as if they sat under a heat light too long waiting to be ordered. Granddaughters shrimp Alfredo tasted terrible. The chicken tenders was salty on the other plate. Horrible experience all around. Save your money and go some where else
