Won't eat here!! – Why is that horrible picture on your website? That man doesn't even look nice.
WHERE ARE ALL THE CCUSTOMERS – My wonderful Husband & daughter treated me to a birthday lunch at Joe's on a Sunday. When we walked in, there was hardly anyone there? We placed our order, which took awhile, waitress had no personality, did not check on us to see if our meal was good. I really like crab cake & was surprised that my order of crab cake was very mushy I think they forgot to cook it!! & the rest of our orders had tons of salt. We have eaten there before & loved our food & experience, & to top it off our bill came to 80$ Which made me sick!! I believe Chef Gordan Ramsey would have rated JOE'S CRAP SHACK an F & spit out that mushy CRAP CAKE!! All in all if you care about your health I don't recommend eating here at all. I have since enjoyed eating at Market Street Grill where you can enjoy fresh seafood at a reasonable price & the food is YUMMY!!!
Fun atmosphere, great food! – I've always had a great experience at Joe's. Sure, it's loud, and the decor is a little crazy, but it all adds to that seaside shack feel! The servers are always respectful to me and whoever I'm with. Sure, servers are human and they make mistakes, but the managers are always apologetic and helpful. Once I ordered the dungeness crab spicy boil, but the server brought out dungeness barbecue style. I alerted the server to the mistake, and she quickly brought me the correct order. A few minutes later the manager came up to the table and apologized again for the mistake and offered to take the appetizer off the bill. That's great service in my book!
They also have a new menu, they've had it for about a month I think, and it has some great new additions (I love the pan seared mahi). So give the Crab Shack a chance and stop by! You might be surprised.
A colorful seafood restaurant for kids of all ages--especially the younger ones. – In Short
Admittedly kitschy, unavoidably noisy, this Red Lobster for rug rats is like an oversized seaside shanty awash in oceanic memorabilia--fishing nets, souvenir trinkets, plastic flotsam and jetsam. Staffed with a lively crew of G-rated table-dancing servers, the family-friendly chain anchors its menu in all things crab: Crab balls, crab cakes, crab dip, crab gumbo. Finicky children opt for corndogs or hamburgers; shellfish-phobic adults dine on rib eye steak or mesquite-grilled chicken.
Great Date, Service and Food Was NOT! – I flew here from Jacksonville, Florida to meet someone (Dating On-Line is not the safest thing in the world) but I have to admit that my date was the highlight of the trip and eating at this So-Called Establishment was the worst thing that I experienced.
I love Seafood and get ample of it in Florida, on a scale of 1-10, it would be a ZERO!!!!! The Lobster was like chewing rubber and had NO TASTE! The Bread was wonderful and the only thing good I can say about the entire meal. Service = 2, Noise = 10, Attitude = 5. If they do not want to work there, why are they there?
I would NEVER go back here again.
Side Note: Not only was the Myan Food 3 times better, so was the Atmosphere. I would eat there (Myan) again and when I move here, I will be sure to bring my children, they would love to see the Divers.
BAD service – Extremely rude server. When we were seated at our table we waited at least 20 min before I got up to ask the hostess if any servers would be taking our order soon. When a server quickly walked by our table he didn't even stop at our table to say he was our waiter, we assumed he was because he said "I'll be back". Before he turned the turner I said loudly enough so he can hear "could we at least get some water"? He turned back to say "you know where the door is!" We decided we should dine elsewhere. As we were leaving, the waiter walks next to the couple we were with and says "Thanks for making my job easier by leaving!" Within minutes, my husband asks for a manager. To sum up his response, the manager was not surprised that his employee acted out. Apologized, like any other manager would do. However, if he was aware of this employee's perfomance why was he still there? In anycase, BEWARE of rude employees should you choose to dine here.
Horrible – There was nothing good about the food. Our server was the only decent point. It was the worst crab I have ever eaten. I definitely will not be back.
i'll settle with Red Lobster – I'm not a fan of all the hooplah and active decor. The food was average at best. I went there a second time. Needless to say the food was worse on their second chance.
Completely disappointed – My family ate at Joe's for the first time in 2 years. It started out with us staring at a half empty restaurant and being told that it would be a 10 minute wait. Once seated, we ordered the Joe's Double Dip for an appitizer. It tasted like it was topped with velveta cheese and gave a odd, unpleasant aftertaste. I ordered a steak and lobster tail and my wife ordered Shrimp and Salmon. The lobster tail and shrimp both tasted like they had been cooked hours ahead of time and had been sitting under a heat lamp. None of our food had much flavor either. The twice baked potatoe was OK, but I wouldn't get it again.
All in all, it was big money for poor food at a poor restaurant. I would expect more if McDonalds started selling lobster tail and shrimp. I do not recommend this restaurant.
What Happened??? – When this place first opened it was great. My last visit on Saturday was terrible. The food has gone way downhill. For a seafood/crab restaurant, they sure don't know how to cook shrimp or crab. Overdone and tough. Sorry, but there are many other places in SLC to get much better seafood for the same or less money.
