I have been to Joe's Crab Shack in other states and have always enjoyed the food BUT not here in San Francisco...it was the worst crab I have ever had to pay $30.00 bucks for! I ordered the BBQ Dungeness carb and it did not taste anything like I recall from the other Joe's Crab Shacks I have been to. I'm thinking the Dungeness crab here would be great because it is right in the dungeness crabs backyard...was I wrong, Joe sure do know how to "F---" up a crab!
It did not have any BBQ favor and was just plain too salty. I complaint once and the waiter took it back only to bring it back with what looked like an attempt to throw more BBQ on it...it just made it more salty. The waiter never came back to see how it was, then an waitress came by when we were almost finished and asked how our meals were...I said, it is the worst crab I have ever eaten...she thought I was kidding until my wife said..he's not kidding! She was nice about it and asked what I wanted them to do, by then I had eaten most of it or gave away to other people in my party to try. Once you got pass the salty shell to the meat it was ok with a lot of butter.
I just said...not your fault, nothing you can do. I think I got my whole months of salt intake in this one sitting!
I will never return to this place in SFand would think twice about any other Joe's Crab Shack. NOT RECOMMENDED...GO ELSEWHERE!
They don't even deserve the 1 star because of the food...service was ok.
