Joe's Crab Shack to Join Wegmans, PNC Bank, in Boulevard at Box Hill
The Wegmans opening date has been moved to Sept. 18.
Seafood lovers rejoice.
Joe's is scheduled to open Oct. 1, less than two weeks after the grocery superstore’s opening on Sept. 18 (three days later than its original start date).
PNC Bank, which is scheduled to begin construction in the next four to six weeks, will open on or near the same day as Wegmans.
The two Joe’s Crab Shack locations closest to Bel Air are in Gaithersburg, outside Washington, DC, and Wilmington.
“We’re real excited to be selected to be the first one here in the Baltimore area,” said Tom Fidler, senior vice president and principal of MacKenzie Commerical Real Estate Services, the Boulevard's consulting and leasing agent.
The menu for Joe’s includes shrimp, mussels, oysters, and of course, crabs. The restaurant also serves burgers, desserts and alcoholic beverages.
Joe’s opened its first location in Texas in 1991 and now has 114 eateries nationwide. The Gourmet Dining corporation owns the restaurant.
Fidler said another restaurant is close to signing an agreement, which will complete Phase 1 of the master plan.
“We are still in concept planning for Phase 2 as part of the overall master plan,” he said. “Those plans will be forthcoming for community review in the coming weeks or months.”
