Joe's Crab Shack Takes a Cue From the South
This fall, Joe's Crab Shack offers up a new set of featured menu items, including Southern Fried Maine Lobster and Loaded Crab Fries, providing guests with a more relaxed approach to seafood.
No utensils are necessary for these hands-on dishes, available now through mid-November at Joe's Crab Shack restaurant locations.
The new Southern Fried Maine Lobster offers guests a chance to savor lobster without a white tablecloth or fancy plate setting. Hand-breaded lobster meat is served with a fresh ear of corn, house-baked macaroni and cheese, toasted garlic bread, and Old Bay spiked cream sauce. The entrée is offered in a traditional style or with a Cajun kick.
Other new entrées include Southern Fried Surf and Surf (hand breaded lobster meat and five crispy shrimp stuffed with crab, cream cheese, and jalapenos), Garlickin' Good Crab & Fries, and Loaded Crab Fries.
"Our dishes are inspired by the way they do seafood in the South, lobster you eat with your hands. There's no fuss necessary, and yet, it's absolutely delicious," says Barry Lofton, executive chef at Joe's Crab Shack. "We're using the best ingredients but leave out the intimidating presentation. This way, our guests can just dive in and enjoy."
In addition to the featured menu items, the new fall drink menu has down-home cocktails such as Patio Punch, Southern Spiked Tea, and the new Strawberry Sauza-rita served in true Southern style, in mason jars that guests can bring home.
