Joe's Crab Shack
At Joe's Crab Shack, you'll find cozy hardwood floors, plenty of kitschy decorations and enough crabs to fill the Atlantic well, almost. Located just off busy Semoran Boulevard, not far from the airport, Joe's Crab Shack is a fun getaway for singles, couples or families, brimming with good cheer and simple, good cooking. Energetic servers dance and boogie around the room every ten minutes to keep things lively, but don't despair; they never let that get in the way of serving you a delightful array of fresh seafood, perfectly steamed crabs, clams and oysters, or a hearty round of scrumptious appetizers. Come for the food, stay for the fun!
I like the atmosphere and the service is usually good, but that doesn't make up for the horrible food. The last time I visited I had shrimp cooked three different ways and all three were overdone. The shrimp was rubbery and had little taste. On previous occasions I've had similar situations. Either no flavor or over cooked. It's too bad they don't overhaul the menu because they have a good thing going on with the decor.
I have lived in Orlando for over 20 years. I keep visiting Joe's Crab Shack thinking that it will get better and I am consistently disappointed by the food quality. The atmosphere and staff are awesome, the food is awful and the value for your money is lacking. I can say on my last visit I loved the parsley potatoes and the cornbread/biscuit, but the seafood never tastes fresh, lacks flavor and is always overcooked.
One of the best restaurants I have eaten in the atmosphere was fantastic as was the food.
Anyone staying in Orlando must visit this place just for the atmosphere if that alone we visited many times on our recent stay and loved it!!!!
Loved the decor outside and inside, great staff! Food was terrific.I need to go back for more!Value for money,could hardly finish the food on my plate such a large amount,but alas i did as it was too delicious!I would love to visit Joes during the summer time as its ideal for outside dining!
There's so much going on, you won't have to worry about your kids getting restless and the food is excellent. My son (2yrs old) loved it. He was entertained the entire time and we were actually able to enjoy a meal out.
I recommend the crab stuffed shrimp and the coconut shrimp and you have to have the crab balls from the appetizer menu.
The outside of the restaurant is very welcoming. The lights are great and it looks exactly like a shack! Your lit up sign is awsome!
Your food was outstanding! It was very cool that for some of the songs, some of the waiters would come out and do a dance. My favorite part was allof the lights, disco balls and the fun music. It's really interesting that for peoples birthdays you would have them hulahoop in front of everyone.
Keep up the great work!!
CAN'T WAIT YO GO BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
