Make Their “Secret” Recipe in Just Minutes
Joe’s Crab Shack opened its first location in Houston, Texas in 1991. Landry’s Restaurants, Inc. purchased the original Joe’s in Houston in early 1994 to convert it into a Landry’s Restaurant. By 1995 the chain had grown to three locations in Houston and one in Dallas.
Today the brand includes a national chain featuring a festive but laid-back atmosphere. Many of the locations are on waterfront property with large patio seating areas, built to resemble an old beachfront property. Many include family friendly features such as a playground and an arcade in a few locations.
