Joe's Crab Shack Debuts New Southern Summer Dishes and Drinks

Corona-steamed entrees, coastal appetizers and refreshing cocktails heat up the menu

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As summertime approaches, Joe's Crab Shack introduces new offerings that deliver a taste of the Southern seaside with dishes, available through Aug. 26, that combine a splash of fun with the highest quality seafood available.

The Southern Summer menu includes a variety of entrees that give guests the best of both worlds - great seafood and great beer - including the new Corona® Beach Bake and Coastal Wave Steampot. Other items include new starters, drinks and desserts.

"On one of our recent trips to the Gulf Coast, we stopped at seafood shacks and noticed a great idea - beer in the crab boil," said Vice President of Marketing Janet Gieselman. "We knew our guests would love it, and Corona is a natural fit for Joe's - both brands were born on the beach."

New entrees, served "Shack Style" with a kick of Corona, include:

  • Corona Beach Bake: Lobster, clams, sausage, shrimp, fresh corn and potatoes steamed with a Corona chile-lime bath
  • Coastal Wave Steampot: Dungeness crab, snow crab, sausage and shrimp with corn and potatoes, finished with a Corona chile-lime bath

Other new dishes include the Southern Coastal Catch featuring grilled mahi-mahi, chile-lime shrimp and a made-from-scratch crab cake,and Southern Citrus Campechana, Joe's version of the classic Mexican seafood cocktail with shrimp and crabmeat.

Guests can also enjoy new Tiki Cocktails like the Sailor's Mai Tai, the Hawaiian Margarita and the Rum Barrel Long Island Tea. For just $2, guests can keep the perfect-for-summer tiki glass.

Joe's Crab Shack will feature the new menu items at all of its 130+ locations. For a full list of menu items, go to For locations, visit
