Joe's Crab Shack: "Seafood in a crazy atmosphere" Redondo Beach Restaurant Tip by Lizchiq

Redondo Beach Restaurants: 36 reviews and 52 photos

Joe's Crab Shack is a popular restaurant chain known for their seafood dishes. We went to the one here in the Redondo Beach Harbor, lured in by their commercials promoting their steam pots and lobster.

We went on a Monday night and they happened to be out of lobster, which was one of the main reasons we went in. We ordered crab stuffed mushrooms (really tasty, a little greasy but very satisfying), followed by the Joe's Steampot. The crab and the sausage were really good, but the shrimp was a bit of a letdown, as was the corn; however, the crab certainly exceeded my expectations.

Finished with some bread pudding - pretty good as well.

I'd recommend this place more as a casual night with a big group of friends - and if you don't care about shelling seafood, it's quite fun. Definitely not as much a date spot as there is some loud music and the waiters dance around, and the tables are larger and bench-style.

Favorite Dish: Anything with crab would probably be the best.
