Worst Joes crab shack we have been to. Took three tries to get our drinks. We didn't even know who our waiter was.First Blanca helped us then she introduced a guy to us and told us he would be taking care of us. He took our order and we never saw him again. We didn't even get condiments or butter sauce until way after the food came. No one even gave us the bibs till after we were almost done eating. Only plus was we were seated fast, but why seat a party if you don't know who is going to be taking care of them. Also banging of the metal buckets during the dance was a little excessive.

Hit & miss place. Been there 2x. 2nd time we had to wait 60 min for our food. Waitress had a long day & wanted to get home. Terrible customer service. They are in prime location though.

We arrived in Old Sacramento for the first time expecting to have fun. We saw the wonderful outdoor deck on the river and thought Joe's would be great. We were wrong. The hostess was polite but after sitting at our table the service was horrible. We waited for 5 mins to be greated(that's a long time for a corporate place)...mind you we have a 1 year old in a high chair with us. Then we waited for 20 mins for a sandwich and fried fish. The blackened chicken club was mediocre and my wife's fish wasn't anything to be proud of. One piece was cooked fine while the other she almost broke a tooth biting into it. Her fries were also cold. Had to wait another 10 mins for a fresh piece of fish. It was a joke and we will not be returning. Oh and she never got the salad she ordered. And the table next to us almost was going because they hadn't been greeted in at least 10 mins. We almost went and talked to a server for them.

I enjoyed a classic American burger with rock shrimp. So yummy to my tummy. I wish I remembered the bartender name, he was a young man in great shape with an amazing personality. My half hour lunch turned into two hours. Thank you.

Read all the horrible reviews before dining here. All the bad ones are true!! The receptionist told me to give her my cell phone number so she could txt me when our table was ready. We sat at the bar for 90 txt. approached her abt our seating she said she called out our name and we didn't answer so we were dropped. Went back to the bar and got the manager who listened to me complain and he seated us. Waitresses were slow . Specifically paid $40 dollars for king crab dinner and what came out was NOT king crab. The 3 crab legs shells were tiny and soft and the plastic knife they give you to cut them open with, lacerated the palms of my hand. There was 2 tiny new potatoes on the plate that's it. Also, one of the legs didn't have any meat in it. I ordered a soda with my meal that never came, when I said to our waitress it had been 20 minutes ago she flippantly said oh it was just a few minutes ago. The wait staff is so unprofessionally trained, the food is lousy and way over priced and you better check that bill. The waitress had added on stuff we never ordered. So that took another 30 minutes waiting for her to correct it and come back. We were there for 3 hours. We left her a $1.00 tip so maybe someone will get a clue that the whole restaurant is clueless!!

Tonight I had the WONDERFUL pleasure of dining at Joe's. The waitress, Danielle, was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! I have been to Joe's before but this girl was without a doubt the BEST! As soon as we were seated she came over, sat down , and introduced herself. She was smiling, happy and very energetic!!!! I knew that this was going to be fun and it was. She was WONDERFUL!!! I spoke to the manager on her behalf and I truly hope to have her as a waitress again. It just happened to be my birthday and she made it VERY SPECIAL!!!!! Thank You.

Hosts, seaters, cleaners and waiters all stop to do a dance which prolongs getting the frozen food ordered. Management and food are horrible. Not worth the price nor time.
