Anyone visiting the beautiful area of Oceanside, California, to enjoy seeing the Pacific Ocean might be interested in going to a seafood restaurant while there.

The Oceanside Harbor and Marina area is a place where there are many restaurants and shops to visit. Joe's Crab Shack is located at 314 Harbor Avenue in Oceanside. They are open for lunch and dinner with happy hour specials.

Joe's Crab Shack is a chain of American beach-themed casual dining restaurants which specialize in seafood. The original restaurant was founded in Houston, Texas, in 1991. They now has locations across much of the United States.

Guests who eat at Joe's Crab Shack may choose from a wide variety of favorite seafood and other dishes. There are buckets of seasonal seafood, fried shrimp platters, and fish dishes as well as steak, chicken, and sandwiches.

Joe's not only has an extensive menu of food items, but they also have a retail store. One of the popular merchandise items for sale is a tie-dye T-shirt which contains the phrase "Peace, Love, and Crabs."

Joe's Crab Shack is a fun restaurant.

Landry's Restaurants, Inc. purchased the original Joe's in Houston in 1994 to convert it into a Landry's Restaurant. They had three locations in Houston and one in Dallas by 1995.

Joe's was sold to a privately held company, J.H. Whitney & Company in 2006, which operated as JCS Holdings, LLC. They changed their name in 2009 to Ignite Restaurant Group. They went public in 2012.

Ignite Restaurant Group filed for bankruptcy protection in 2017 and was acquired once again by Landry's, Inc. at a bankruptcy auction. The chain was operating 44 locations in 18 states in 2021.
