Joe's Crab Shack serves a variety of unique, high quality seafood items, with an emphasis on crab. Joe's is a fun, family-friendly restaurant that encourages guests to "roll up your sleeves and crack into some crab.”

Steampots and Buckets of Crab combined with signature beverages like the Shark Bite and Category 5 Hurricane are a few of the most popular products in the innovative, crab-forward menu. Superior food quality is a hallmark of the brand and helps provide families with a craveable, celebratory experience in a vacation-themed environment that offers an escape from the everyday.

Joe’s Crab Shack operates 136 restaurants in 33 states as of September 2014.

The chain is opened by Ignite Restaurants Group. The company reported sales declined 4.7% at Joe's Crab Shack in the second quarter of 2014.


The first Joe's Crab Shack opened in Houston in 1991. The chain had grown to three locations in Houston and one in Dallas by 1995.

The restaurants were sold to JH Whitney & Co. in 2006 operating as JCS Holdings.

JCS changed its name to Ignite Restaurant Group in 2009.
