Joe’s Crab Shack

Located on Fisherman’s Wharf, Joe’s Crab Shack is known for two things, crabs and dancing. If you order crab, you’ll get a crab cracker you can take home as a souvenir, as well as a bib if you get a little messy. Also, there is always music playing in this fun, lively place, but, sometimes, the workers will get up and start grooving along to the song. There is a wide variety of other delicious food, such as Maine lobsters, ribeye, jumbo shrimp, catfish, calamari and mahi-mahi. They can come in the appetizers, or in big steampots. And don’t forget the delectable desserts like the key lime pie and chocolate shack attack.
