Joes Crab Shack

Food tasted great, but I woke up 6 hours after eating it with uncontrollable shakes and a fever and chills. This lasted about an hour until I threw up everything. I had chills the rest of the night, but felt much better after throwing up. The day... See More after I developed watery diarrhea with green colored stool which has continued to Day 3 which is today. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Chills, Shaking See Less

Crab legs, My wife and I ate crab at this location, on 10-19-22 around 8:30 PM. By 10:30 AM 10-20-22 I had a fever, diarrhea, nausea, muscle aches, flushed skin, and neck pain. I have been in the ER/hospital since. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Other, Muscle Pain See Less

3/1/22 Three in our party ate the crab steamed bucket. First person got sick with severe stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, severe diaherra and chills starting at 6:30 am on 3/22 and had to go to the ER at 1:30 due to severe dehydration which included muscle spasms,... See More dizziness, etc. Second person started with same symptoms a few hours after the first person with the same symptoms. Third person started with same symptoms on 3/4/22 at 6:30 am. None of us have ever had food poisoning before. We had eaten at a here 4 years ago, same items, and were not sick. We will never eat at a here again.
