I went here last night and it was really good! The menu was limited but I got the queen crab with old bay seasoning and it was so delicious! The wait staff was very attentive and the chef was helpful in determining the seasoning for the crabs. Very sensitive Celiac and no issues! Would 10/10 return!

Before I ordered, I clearly stated I had a gluten and soy allergy to the waitress. I repeated after giving my order to make sure nothing had soy in it. Getting my meal gluten free was not a problem although they can't guarantee no cross contamination. Not many choices but doable. Getting my meal soy free was not getting though to her at all. My grilled chicken, broccoli and rice were all covered in a "butter blend" that contains soy. Sent it back only to receive the broccoli and rice back with the butter blend on it again. Manager came out asking what we needed having no idea what the problem was. It appeared she was running the kitchen so I assume the waitress didn't denote on my order or communicate to the kitchen staff my allergy.

The waiter was very informative and provided their gluten-free menu. I had the mahi mahi with white rice and was delicious. I didn’t get sick.

I had the snowcrab boil with crab, corn, and potatoes. No reaction, everything tasted great, wait staff were super kind! Great experience! Pricey, but worth it!

We live by the boardwalk, but rarely go to the Fertitta tourist trap. Went to Joe’s Crab Shack tonight, while the teen ran around the boardwalk with friends. They have a Gluten Sensitive menu. I am very risk adverse, as a very sensitive celiac. I opted for the Caesar Salad (no protein added) off the Gluten sensitive menu and a side cluster of steamed snow crab legs. The salad came out dry, no dressing! I asked the server and he said the Caesar dressing contains gluten. Ok, but a bowl full of Romain with a sprinkle of Parmesan does not a salad make! Please ask the kitchen manager if ANY dressing is gluten free. He finally brought me some Italian dressing, that “wouldn’t kill me.” My crab legs were also presented cold and soggy. I’d much rather hit up Rose’s seafood market across the channel and cook them myself. The quality and size was pathetic.

My expectations are very, very low and I thought I was being about as easy as possible. Obviously not the waiters, fault but what a joke! Asked to consult with a manger while ordering twice, and was never spoken to by anyone. Only upside is that they have Angry Orchard Hard Cider, which would have been my entire order if I knew I would be eating lettuce with Italian dressing.

As mentioned before, they have a small gf menu, our Server seemed knowledgeable and said he marked my order of the peel & eat shrimp (cold, lemon only) and garden salad as gf. However, when the salad came out, it had croutons on it! I promptly said “I can’t eat that and need a whole new salad prepared please”! Server left the salad at our table so i could see they made a fresh one. They were prompt with the new salad and our original Server apologized and said he had marked the order gf, the kitchen was just not paying attention. I did not get sick but I would be very careful here. They do have outside seating and are dog friendly too.
