Joe's Crab Shack Restaurant Review

: Here, crab is king, and a wide variety of crab selections are available in season, thus yielding a year-round variety including Alaskan king crab, dungeness crab, Alaskan snow crab and blue crab. They are served up steamed, barbecued or garlic-style. And every serving of crab comes with a Joe's bib and the traditional signature mallet for bashing the crab shell. Even if you're not a crab fan, the restaurant offers a range of other standards: sandwiches, steaks, pastas and chicken. The goal here is to really get into enjoying your food---pound away and make a mess!
