Joe's Crab Shack
If you have children, this restaurant is a must. Joe's Crab Shack, located in the Quarry Shopping Center, has everything, from excellent crab, fish, shrimp, hush puppies and oysters to a fun and lively environment. What make Joe's stand out from the sea of restaurants are the friendly wait staff and the singing and dancing. At random points, music will start to boom from all corners of the restaurant, at which time the employees begin performing a choreographed dance. Not only do the patrons have a ball, the performers truly have a blast, too. This restaurant provides entertainment for children and parents or for large groups of friends. If you want candlelight and wine, stay away. If you're looking for laughs, loud music and great food, Joe's Crab Shack is the ticket. It also has a sandy play area for kids in the back.
I love Joe s Crab Shack....untill I went to the Querry location. Service was ok, food was not good! There must of been 4 or 5 waitstaff sitting at the bar eating and drinking while we sat and waited for service. The servers were talking and yelling throughout the place having a grand ole time while my husband and i sat quietly waiting for food. It was 11pm so they were all ready to get us out and start parting...we actually heard 2 servers talking about how they wished we would hurry and go so they could go to a bar! I will not go back nor will i encourage others to go. Waste of our money and time!
The first time that I went to this restaurant My husband and I had to wait for more than 10 min. for a waiter to come to the table. We decided to leave the restaurant. When we were walking to the parking lot the mananger of the restaurant came to us and offered an apology and a free meal to us.
After several months we decided to come back again. We had to wait almost 10 min. for the waitress to introduce herself and we waited a long time for the food. The food wasn't good. I ordered the Tilapia. It was burned and salty. My husband ordered a Ribeye that was just average. The service wasn't good at all
Joe's at the Alamo Quarry is totally off the chain! We had the most awesome 35th wedding anniversary celebration there, complete with a husband and wife shrink wrapping while the restaurant sang Happy Anniversary to us. Our server Damian delivered the most powerful, prophetic statement when he said that Joe's Crab Shack believes marriages are to last for a lifetime. Thank you for a memorable, special evening!
My husband and I went to Joe's Crab Shack in Corpus Christi for our first visit. LOVED IT(the server wasn't that great, but the food was delicious). We then went to the one at the quarry and everything was GREAT!!! Excellent food and service!!!
Our food was not good and it took forever to get our food. We had a large party there after a girl's softball game and they did not handle a big crowd well at all. On top of that they double billed my credit card, not twice but three times! I was not impressed!
The waiters are great and very friendly. They offer very fast and efficient service. We ordered the calamari, king crab legs and steak. Other than the crab legs the food did not have any flavor to it. I had to order lots of lemon, and put salt and more condiments on my food to get a taste out of it. The mixed alcoholic drinks are really good. The ambiance is great, the waiters keep you entertained dancing and getting the customers involved in their dances and games. I loved the whole experience and would go again if only their food would have more flavor to it. The price is really good too. It's great if you want to go with family or romantic dinner.
We just got back from Joe's. Our server was pre-occupied the entire time. We sat there for 5 minutes before he told he would be right back. 5 minutes later he returned. We were ready to order our drinks appetizer and meal by that time. We almost left after that because he neglected to bring our 5yr old her milk. The food was good and we had to ask another waiter to bring ketchup because we couldnt find our waiter. My family and I will never return to this Joe's ever again.
Waiter we had was apparently the best waiter on staff but seemed to be boycotting refills on drinks. We got our order really quick but then decided to ordered more snow crabs that took longer then are initial order. Waiter lied and said he had put in our order and indeed really didn't put it in, because when asked , he ran to the computer to put it in. While waiting for our other crabs to come out, I saw the cook playing with some crabs in the back of the kitchen and put them in a basket and gave it to our waiter to bring it out to us, after he had a puppet show with our food.
