Joe’s Crab Shack, founded in 1991, is an established, national chain of casual seafood restaurants. Joe’s serves a variety of high-quality seafood items, with an emphasis on crab. Joe’s is a high-energy, family-friendly restaurant that encourages guests to "roll up your sleeves and crack into some crab."
Crab is deliberately place center stage as a defining item to the Joe’s experience, Joe’s Steampot and Crab in a Bucket offerings allow guests to choose between three varieties of crabs (Snow, Dungeness, and King). Our Steampots are overflowing with generous portions of crab, other seafood, red potatoes, a fresh ear of corn and sausage, combined with a complimentary set of savory seasonings. Our Crab in a Bucket entrees allow guests to pair their favorite crab selection with several distinctive preparations.
Many Joe’s Crab Shack restaurants are located on waterfront property, and most locations offer patio seating and a children's playground. Joe’s restaurants perform well in targeted markets with high population density, as well as "destination" markets with national and regional tourist attractions.
