Joe's Crab Shack USED TO BE my favorite place to eat for years. Anyone who knows me knows that I placed NO other restaurant above Joe's... until my last two experiences. Now, I'll most likely never eat there again. Joe's (apparently ALL Joe's Crab Shacks) did away with their very best steam pots (e.g. my favorite, which was the Samuel Adams Steam Pot and others) and now have only 4 selections. WRONG MOVE and BAD IDEA!!! We visited this Joe's (just outside of Birmingham) on Sunday, May 29, 2016 at 1:00 pm. I ordered the Arctic Bay Steampot. When I ate the lobster tail, it was so mushy I could almost drink it. Worst lobster ever!!! I had to fight the urge to vomit. My wife's salmon was also raw in the middle of it. She enjoyed the edges. I should have complained to the waiter and manager, but we were dealing with my wife's sick dad in the hospital. The ONLY good thing about our visit was the waiter, who was awesome. As such, I do not blame him for this experience.
