Joe’s Crab Shack Keto


Don’t let the name throw you off, if you aren’t a seafood lover. They have plenty of turf dishes also.

Joe’s is not a fancy restaurant. But it’s not quite at fast food level. It’s about like Captain D’s. The menu items are about $10 to $20 per person, depending on which meal you order.

People who eat there seem to like it. They have been in business since 1991.

Things to watch out for.

Joe’s Crab Shack has a seasoning blend that has secret ingredients. Which means it might include sugar.

Make sure to specify that your dish be made with only salt, pepper, and garlic. Hold the house seasonging blend.

You can also use the clarified butter and malt vinegar on your fish items. That’s enough flavor for anyone.


You should be on the lookout for their steam buckets. Unless you tell them otherwise, they  come with corn and potatoes steamed in the net with the crab.

Make sure you have them substitute these items out for keto friendly sides.
