On May 13, 2016 my husband after a viewing a movie at one of the theaters at Barefoot Landing decided on grabbing some lunch. We saw Joes Crab Shack and thought what an excellent choice. Wrong! We were not greeted when we entered for several minutes. The dining area was not busy we observed several servers hanging out in empty booths up front and several servers clocking out. We were seated for several minutes (10 min) without anyone offering to take are order. Two servers argued behind us that we should not of been seated in that section because it wasn't her turn. This same server finally acknowledged us by saying some one (not her) will be with you and promptly sat down in a empty booth near the hostess stand and continued talking with 3 other servers. Not ONE of them offered to go ahead and help us, I remind you the dining room was virtually empty. We collected our things and headed out the door. The hostess looked like "we blew it" but the three servers happily chatting just watched us walk out like "whatever". Very disappointing luckily we walked a few feet down and found a great spot to eat with quality service.

Great food! Pricey but worth it. It is a well know policy everywhere if you have a group the gratuity is already added to your check. So keep in mind if you go to any restaurant this is common policy. It is a noisy atmosphere but still very nice.

We ate at Joe's Crab Shack on 5-31-2013, five adults, two children. WE had 2 children's meals, 2 fish dinners, 4 shrimp dinners along with 1 steam pot for all of us to try. The food was average, I've ate better. The waiter was great. Our bill was 192.00!!! There was 26.00 gratitude and 18.00 dollars in tax's. We are always good tippers but, this was overboard for the typed service and restaurant Joe's is and, the food is overpriced for the quality and amount of food you get. Also my husband ask the manager about the gratitude and, it was obvious that he wanted to be loud so everybody could hear and try to embarrass you. Needless to say, we won't go back. ED:gratitude = gratuity

We've been going to Joe's Crab Shack for about 5 years, ever since we started including Barefoot Landing in our yearly visit to Myrtle Beach, & all I can say is this place is its WONDERFUL. The food is always excellent, and the service is so cheerful! Waiters & waitresses actually look like they're enjoying their jobs! The only thing to watch out for is the wait... But I can understand why it takes so long: everyone loves this place so much! We absolutely love the staff & their enthusiasm! Much love from our party, & we'll see ya in June!... P.S. Try the Maui Mahi. It's to die for!

My wife and I visited Joe's this afternoon for a late lunch. Thinking we made the right choice by seeing the mouth watering commercials on tv our belly were ready for some heaping pots of crab clams and shrimp. Well our bellies were still longing for that after we left! Terrible was what I thought. I feel like I was robbed by this establishment. Don't get me wrong the food was good but I did not receive all the food in the pot that was described in the menu. I was also not impressed by the way the alcohol was pushed down my throat by the waitress. Not everyone drinks and I don't appreciate an attitude when I ask for a soda. I will never return to any Joes crab shack restaurants ever. I am going to actively tell everyone I know to boycott this restaurant as well. False advertising should be against the law.

In September of 2012 we went on vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC and one night decided to eat at Joe's. My parents, my nephew, my fiance and I had decent meals and the service was fine. The bill for our meals totaled just over $85. My fiance and I decided to get a dessert while my father payed the $85 plus tip in cash. Our dessert totaled just over $9. As my parents left the table to walk around some other stored before they closed, we were given our check which we paid with a Visa. Being in a hurry to catch up to my parents, my fiance quickly signed the slip and we left. When we returned to our condo, she checked her bank account and noticed she had been charged the $85. We figured it was an honest mistake so we called the restaurant and the manager agreed that the charge was not correct and gave us a number to call to have it fixed. We called and left a message, which was not returned. We called several more times and never received a return call. We decided to go through the bank and file a claim. A few months passed and we received a letter in the mail with a copy of the signed $85 receipt and a statement telling us that our money would not be refunded. We called the restaurant again and the management truly seemed to want to help, although they NEVER returned my calls or followed up as promised. I spoke to 2 restaurant managers and a district manager before being given a direct number for a customer service rep in Texas. After speaking with her a few times she said that because they had a copy of the signed receipt our money would not be refunded. I told her if that was the case then the cash my father payed was stolen and that he should call. He called and spoke with her as well as another manager for the store. They told him he was lying and that as far as they were concerned the matter was settled. So essentially we have come to the conclusion that the waitress at the restaurant pocketed my fathers cash minus the $9 for the dessert and charged the main bill to my fiances Visa. I've never seen a company try this hard to not satisfy a customer. The least they could do is offer us a gift card, but they were insistent on calling us liars.

Let me just start by saying that this was the one and only time in my 35 year life that I have ever walked out of a restaurant before even being served. We got a seat right away, which happened to be the only good from our visit. After we sat, we never even saw a waitor/waitress. We watched as two different sets of patrons were not only visited once for drink orders, but were also visited a second time to get their food orders. We never had anybody come to our table. When we got up to leave, nobody said a word to us, and we walked right back past the hostess on our way out the door, and heard nothing from her either. Worst experience ever. I'll never go back.

We went at 6pm on a Sunday night. Had a group of eight and were seated promptly. Great waitress. I have Celiac disease, so ordered off the Gluten Free menu. Barely made it back to the hotel before getting sick. So, if you are GF, BEWARE!!

I rate this particular restaurant chain on a low scale because our food was cold and the bill was $180.00; way too much for 3 buckets, 2 of the cheapest fish plates on the menu and 2 $6.00 kids meals which made my daughter vomit in the car on the way home. The waitress was told to put the bill on a gift card and $25.00 dollars on the bank card, she did the very opposite because we didn't agree to add five or ten dollars to our bill as for a fund raiser they were sponsoring. The music was very loud and my children was frightened, some people don't listen to loud music. I will never go to Joes Crab Shack again instead it will be a local family restaurant with reasoning prices for the little food and a waitress that listens to what the customer wants. There was no tip for her!! at Barefoot Landing on September 21,2011

I love Joes Crab shack!!!! The servers are the best I have ever seen... Make you feel like family. Managers are on hand to greet customers also to make sure only the best service is provided. Every hour on the hour the servers do the most entertaining dance to entertain their guest.. (I hope they never stop this tradition) When ever family comes from out of town Joes is where everyone wants to go! The Crab Nacho are superb! I Love JOES CRAB SHACK!!!!!!
