Reviews for Joe's Crab Shack

Had a fun server – So I went in to Joe's Crab Shack in Olathe last week and had a very good time. The server, Lauren, was really nice and the food was delicious. It was kind of pricey but well worth it. We had a bucket of crab and it was fun to crack them open them up with the kids. My kids are 7 and 4 and they loved it, Lauren was able to get them to dance and we had a chance to have some alone time while they were playing with our server. If you like seafood I would recommend this place, it appears they have gotten better servers than they have had in the past.

Worst Restaurant Experience I Have Ever Had !!!! – We waited for an hour and half after being told 45 minutes. We spoke the Manger who never apologized, never visited the table, and couldn?t handle complaints. The staff of children running the restaurant mocked us since we had to see the manager to get a table. You pay 28 bucks for King Crab but be wear you will notice you?re bucket is practically empty. My wife and our guests left to go spend a little money and have a nice, fun dinner. We left the house as 5:45 got to the restaurant at 6:00 sat to eat at 7:45 got our drinks at 7:48 our appetizer was thrown down but some kid who im pretty sure was on something. At 8:10 yeah it took a long time for them to make that appetizer apparently. Our food finally came about 8:30. Each plate by some other child in a uniform, not one utensil not one. Our waitress never brought out the food so we had to find one of the kids dancing around the restaurant. I didn?t see any adults working here. I will spare you the rest but it was the worst experience I have ever had a restaurant. Avoid this restaurant like the plague

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.

Dont do it unless you have kids with you. – This place is a joke. The seafood is overpriced and subpar. The crabs legs, which should be the best item on the menu (Crab shack?) had obviously been frozen for a very long time and bent when they should have broken. The atmosphere lends itself to familys with kids who cant sit still. If your kid has ADD then this is the place for you. If your only with adults then this place would only be the plce to go if you are in the middle of a LSD flashback.

Not Impressed – We went thinking they would have great seafood, but nothing impressed me about the food. The atmosphere was fun for a group of friends that wanted to party. I suggest to go for drinks and appetizers. Dont go for good seafood, because you won't find any here!

Forget you troubles – This is a great place to dine. We have to drive an hour or so to get there, but it is well worth the trip. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I would reccomend Joe's Crab Shack to anyone who loves seafood. It is a very lively restuarant
