I recently went here with a group of friends, and almost everyone ordered crab. Which is good for Joe's Crab Shack. However, if you have that one friend that's not so sure about seafood, it's really not the best place to go, as they have little on their menu that it is either plain fish or even chicken. They have recently started serving salad and bread with all entrees like Olive Garden. It's not a bad idea, but not what you'd expect from a place like Joe's. It used to only be about $1 to add a salad on, so I don't think the free salad was necessary. They must be trying to change their image somehow. It was very loud, and our service was only okay. It's not close to my home, and I don't know that I'm in a rush to go back.
