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.

My wife and I really enjoyed our lunch at this restaurant. We had a great view of Tower Bridge while we ate a delicious lunch. I had the jumbo shrimp wrapped in bacon while my wife had the Mahi Mahi and bacon shrimp plate. We also enjoyed their Patio Punch. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs and was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friends. If you lucky, you'll get to watch Tower Bridge in action, we did :)

Horrible service, over priced. They automatically added gratuity to the check and never took it off, so not only was I charged ILLEGALLY but I have the tip in cash thinking they would take the gratuity off. Called the manager several times to have it fixed. It's been three weeks and it's still not fixed.

Perhaps it is a bad idea to order food here or to expect diligent service. My fries that came with my meal where cold and hard; it literally hurt to chew them. It may be a fun place if you are young and have under developed taste for food and good service. I gave a generous tip but wasn't willing to finish my food or bring any home. My kids might have mistaken it as punishment.

Was there Friday night with the expectation of a good meal. Our waitress was terrible, the food took forever (45 minutes) after our appetizers and then our waitress was magical she kept disappearing and hardly ever came back to our table. We had to ask for refills on drinks and then getting our check was like scraping chalkboard. The food however wasn't too bad but because of the service we can find a better way to fill our time. Won't be back to the Crab Shack in Sac...

Im actually here now. Waited to be seated for a table of 3 for an excess of 2 hours when it was supposed to be a 45 minute wait. When I came to check on our table they lied and said I was texted. Didnt recieve a text so they said maybe I put the wrong number down, but no impossible when I got the initial "welcome" text. Was put back onto the list to receiee the first available table, waited by the door and heard ten names called all of which were not mine. Waited another half and checked with them again and they lied and said they called out my name. Then said theyll put me at the top of the list after some argument, called my name and once he did call my name there was alot of attitude and of course I heard my own name clear as day which contradicted what they had said before about calling me out and blaming me for not being able to hear it even though I was standinf by the door for so long waiting. Food hasnt come yet but the experience so far cannot be salvaged to more than 2 stars even of the food blows my mind. Will not return, taking my funds to firehouse

10/26/14 We had a horrible experience here a couple of months ago. After bringing our crab-for-two our server sat at the table behind us with another girl and complained about how he gets no tips and is disrespected. We finally turned around to let them know we could hear every word and the girl rudely asks "yeah?!" Oh, sorry, did we interrupt your conversation? Our server then told us that they were watching us eat, and that it was like "dinner and a show" for them. We had to ask for him to bring melted butter and when he returned he made a joke about us getting FOOD POISONING. I was in Sacramento for a legal convention and the fear of getting sick and missing my lectures was not a good one. Why would anyone ever joke about this while serving expensive seafood? Our server asked if I was still using the salt on our table halfway through our food. I had potatoes left so I said I "wasn't using it at that moment". He told us he wanted to get out of there quick so he was just going to clean it up. He took the salt from our table, wiped it down, and then finished cleaning the section. As he swept up under tables he and another employee again talking rudely across the room about how much money they could make somewhere else. It wasn't that late and there were other diners at the tables around us, but outside of his section. We were his last table and he was obviously trying to rush us. The server disappeared after bringing our big bill. I had to ask someone else for more salt, and finally had to ask someone for a to-go container. We left really upset. An employee outside told us he thought Michelle was the manager that night but he didn't know. What sort of manager doesn't make their presence known and check on employees/diners all night?! No wonder service was horrible. I called the manager as soon as we returned to our hotel room. (I think I spoke with Samantha?) I explained exactly what was happened and she was apologetic. However, we saw the same server working the next night as we walked by. Guess joking about food poisoning isn't that big of a deal. The food was good but it was hard to swallow when service is that retched. I'd never return to this location knowing that they really don't care how their customers are treated.
