Great food. Affordable. We got the coconut shrimp and they give you a bunch! 12 big delicious prawns, slaw and fries. Also got the keylime pie and the piece seemed like a 1/4 of a pie! We left stuffed! Also the price was very affordable. It is at Barefoot Landing with lots of parking and things to do. We took a bunch of the food back to the condo and enjoyed it later.

Love the crab shack normally... but oh man, we got a doozie of a server named Brandon who was all over the place March 30th. He took forever to get to then table to take our order. Our food took a long time to get out. If you asked for anything - like a plate to put your shared steam pot for 2 meal on or silverware, or drink refills, or butter to dip your crab legs in or an applesauce for the toddler you had to literally wait 5-10 minutes. It was agonizing. The table they put us in was so close to the next people you could hardly pull your chairs out - and we are small people. The menu prices had gone way up since this past fall. So the meal was a chore instead of a pleasure because of how difficult it was to get what always before was just brought by a thoughtful server. Very disappointed- especially as we were leaving and saw our waiter outside smoking and taking photos of the sunset with his phone - guess he was on an extended break when he was serving our table too.

This was our first experience with Joe's Crab Shack and typically when in Myrtle Beach avoid chains. But, due to not having one in the area of PA where we live, this was a new experience.

We made a reservation and glad we did. By the time we were ready to leave, there was quite a wait. Our server was prompt with greeting our table and brought our beverages giving us time to look at the menu. The menu had a good variety from crab pots to share to seafood platters and Tacos.

The crab nachos were delicious. The plate was filled with nachos, crab dip, black beans, cheese and a light lime dressing. Two of us had fish and chips and the other two shrimp. All meals were huge, cooked perfectly, and very good. Shrimp was served with cole slaw and fries.The fish and chips also had hush puppies. We were all too full to touch the fries. The only negative was the hush puppies were hard.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal, great service, and a beautiful view.

The restaurant was not that busy our server was good. Our food came out nice and hot. We didn’t have to wait long. The portions are really good

The restaurant is very nice by the water; and the service was good. But, the food was not tasty and consisted mostly of fried topping. Very disappointed.
