"Great Service"

The cedar Salmon was very good. Our server, William was awesome. Very friendly and helpful. Seated next to window which had a great view of the water.

We had our anniversary dinner here. Food was good and drinks were also but the prices are really high. The lobster steam platters are like $45 each. We had a small appetizer and each had a drink from the bar....our bill was $160 without tip!!

"Seriously Overcooked Seafood"

Dined in this place last week, the food was seriously overcooked (rubberized shrimp and crab)...evidently they need a new cook.

Very pleased with everything. Didn't have a very long wait, service was great, food couldn't be bet. Who would have thought that you would be able to sit outside on the deck in the middle of November in shirt sleeves and enjoy the view of the river and all the pepole. Will come back next trip down.

Finally after 3 previous attempts (all due to a wait time of over 2+ hours), we were able to get a table having to wait maybe 25 minutes. Might have helped that it was about 2pm. Sat outside on their large patio overlooking Lake Taneycomo. HIGHLY recommend going that route, if not too cold.. Food was outstanding but the service was less than desirable.

I was with a party of 18(age 2-55) and I think everyone was pleased. The food was great, and the waiter was very good. The wait staff do a music routine about every 30 minutes, and everyone loved that!!! I got the create your sampler, and it was yummy. We were right by the window so some had a good view of the lake. I will return!!! Highly recommended!!!

I was part of a party of 18 and the service was great and food was great. It was a mix of adults, teenagers, and younger children. Our waiter was personable and very efficient. All 18 were served their food at the same time, and everyone was very pleased with their food. Bar Louie across the street should step over and take notes on how to serve a large party. I had the East Coast Platter and it was just exactly what I expected and wanted. We all really enjoyed our meal at Joe's Crab Shack.
