    Server said they had no gluten free options. Googled the menu and found something but I do not recommend for gluten intolerant

    GF menu with steamed seafood. Delicious, and absolutely no digestive issues after the meal. (Plus, lots of fun cracking open crabs!)

    My husband, infant and I had the most wonderful experience at this Joe's Crab Shack last night! We had never been to one before. I'm an extremely sensitive celiac who is scared to eat out but we're traveling so I try to choose wisely. We were greeted by two friendly hostesses who happily gave me a gluten free menu. Our waitress Vannah was absolutely fantastic. She went out of her way to make sure my food was completely gluten free. I ordered the bucket of shrimp with corn and potatoes as additional sides since the shrimp is actually an appetizer. The shrimp was cooked perfectly, which is hard to find at a restaurant. I also got a barefoot on the beach drink which was wonderful and well priced at $9 considering the size. I almost always have a reaction at a restaurant because I am so sensitive, but I didn't even have a slight reaction. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!

    The GF official menu was limited to crab. Our server was super helpful and arranged for me to have salmon with no seasoning and white rice and a salad. It was over cooked and pretty tasteless. We all waited a long time for our food and think it sat a long time under heat lamps. They tried, great view, not not great experience. Makes for an expensive gluten free and taste free experience.

    Not great, not bad for me as a celiac. I have a 50/50 shot of getting cross contaminated here so not always worth it. The food is good and for someone with only a slight gluten sensitivity, it would be great.

    $$.....but for a lobster and crab steampot with corn and potatoes.... It was good, no complaints. Everybody enjoyed it. Pretty straight forward since no bread or anything gets boiled.... didn't get sick.

    "Just changed their gluten free menu," so if you want only OBSCENELY OVERPRICED $40/lb steamed crabs with no flavor other than steamed then this is the place to be. You could get crabs at a 4 star restaurant for the pricing here.

    The waiter did not know what gluten was. She had to go talk to the manager and then their options were slim and obvious. It's simply seafood that if it isn't gluten free then they can't cook.

    Joe's have a GF menu. They say that the spice they put on the boiled fish is GF, but I asked for it on the side in case. We ordered one of the baskets with crab legs, potatoes, shrimp, and sausage. It was so delicious, and the sausage was a real treat! Did not get any gluten, and absolutely delectable! Seems to reasonably priced for what you get.

    They had a separate gluten free menu which was nice. Decent amount of options. I had a bucket of seafood with potatoes and corn. Waiter didn't know about gluten free much but she went back to talk to the chef to double check everything I ordered, which was nice. Didn't get sick and had a very fun time!

    LOVE THE FOOD AND SERVICE!!!! Will, the manager and Daniel our server are awesome. The GF menu may seem small but Daniel and Will worked with us and made several awesome dishes. I was worried that our first wonderful experience would be just that. One time wonder. However, after our second visit, it is with great pleasure to day it was awesome. If you can, ask for Daniel. He too has food sensitivity, so he is thorough.

    Their menu states items gluten free for nutritional purposes. Spoke with manager who was totally clueless about celiac disease. Only thing recommended as safe is plain steamed crab legs without butter or anything. Would not recommend!

    Worst experience at a restaurant. Hostess, waitress had no idea what on the menu was GF, but we found options online. Besides that, a whole streamer pot was dropped by me. That would have been ok but it wasn't all cleaned up until we were ready to leave. They forgot the corn and potatoes, brought a margarita not once, but twice, with salt even though my friend ordered it without. I know I sound crabby, excuse the pun, but I truly almost never complain! The good was good... here's hoping I don't get sick.

    There was a very small menu and not many sides. I left hungry and over paid for 12 shrimp I had to order twice due to them putting seasoning on it at first. The staff was great just not a good restaurant for celiac customers.
