    Joe's Crab Shack -- Anyone been there?

    We'll be heading to the Portland, Oregon area on Monday --- have a chance to go to Joe's Crab Shack. Their ads on TV have been driving me crazy!!!! Has anyone been to one --- and what are the price ranges?? I looked online but they don't say the prices.

    Thanks in advance!

    My girls took me to the one in Branson last year for my birthday and I can honestly say that it was the most fun place to eat!!! But, I did not see the bill and cannot remember what mine cost on the menu. About the same as Red Lobster, I would think - but not nearly as "fancy". They bring you your order in a bucket and you throw your "bones" (shells, corn cobs, etc.) in another bucket/hole in the table. The waitress brings paper/plastic bibs and she writes things on them with a magic marker - Queen Crab - and the like. The waitresses all get together and sing little cute songs. Nothing fancy about it at all - but so much fun.

    OMG - at the top of this page is now an ad from Joe's Crab Shack - says to click on it and receive coupons. What a smart computer.

    I've been there once and vowed never to go again. The noise level was beyond control. And those waiters that ran around singing happy birthday all the time.

    It's my DH's favorite place to go...was so full on Father's Day we couldn't get in. The one near us, sandwiches/salads approx. $7-$9 range. Seafood meals are more, lobster of course is much higher.

    Don't go because allergic to shellfish and don't trust that a shellfish has not touched other stuff! Have fun in Portland, one of my favorite cities!

    I have only been to the one in San Diego. The prices were fair. The atmosphere is extremely casual. We haven't been there for a while. I did prefer to go for dinner instead of lunch.

    The food has always been tasty and plentiful. We enjoy going there. It an be a bit noisy, but it is a fun place. You cannot miss their HUGE chocolate cake ... seriously, even if you share it among the table. It is the best chocolate cake we've ever had out. I can only eat two or three bites because it's so rich. When we got married, DH had a whole one ordered as his groom's cake. It was gone so fast that he never evengot a piece. Enjoy your trip!
