Joe's Burger Bar


Joe’s Burger Bar opened on Kemah Boardwalk in the summer of 2021. This new concept marks the first Joe’s Crab Shack to house an authentic burger bar, serving a variety of traditional and specialty burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, and more. It is the only dual Joe’s concept with both the original seafood Crab Shack and Burger Bar.

The Kemah location offers mouthwatering classics such as Joe’s Broiler Burger, BBQ Bacon Burger, and the Bacon Swiss Mushroom Burger. Diners can also enjoy a popular specialty called the “Betcha Can’t Burger” featuring a triple patty burger topped with a fried egg, fried onion rings, crisp lettuce, fresh tomato, and cheese. Visitors can then top off their meal with a tasty hand-spun milkshake, the perfect treat for a beautiful day of fun in the sun!

Located on the lower level, Joe’s Burger Bar offers walk-up service, providing guests with a fast-casual dining experience without forsaking the transcendent food quality of a restaurant dining experience. Guests can also hang out and enjoy their meal in separate dining areas including a large patio with breathtaking views overlooking Galveston Bay.

The American-inspired burger bar recaptures the old-school renditions of hamburger diners with a fun, family-friendly, Joe’s twist.
