Joe's Crab Shack-Closed

Joe's Crab Shack
6550 Marina Dr.
Long Beach, CA

Joe's Crab Shack is a nice homey restaurant with a few locations in the LA area.

Pictured is the Great Balls of Fire, appetizer for $6.99. They are basically jalapeno balls with some crab and shrimp. It was pretty tasty.

The main course was King Crab legs for $21.99. The crab legs were good sized and served pipping hot. Some restaurants boil their legs in a very salty brine but Joe's isn't salty at all. Just nice tasty King Crab legs.

Service was good. The server was very friendly and nice. He was attentive and hard working. Though he did give me an iced tea instead of an Arnold Palmer. When he came back about 2-3 minutes later he remembered he I ordered an Arnold Palmer and quickly made the correction.

Joe's blows the Crab Cooker out of the water. Why anybody would go to the Crab Cooker if they can go to Joe's is beyond me.

I would go back to Joe's anytime. Good food, good prices and good service.
