A word from Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab
Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Opened in Chicago in the fall of 2000, Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's has quickly built a reputation as one of Chicago's top steakhouses, featuring the signature 16 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon and 22 oz. New York Strip Steak. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the bustling lounge or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room and you'll understand why dinner at Joe's has quickly become one of Chicago's favorite social engagements.

Diner Reviews
  • "We normally eat at Joe's for special occasions, but we ate there for lunch and I was surprised how their lunch specials make it more affordable."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "Outstanding, as always! Food just doesn't get any better than this. Scallops, halibut, filet mignonette & stuffed shrimp - all exceptional!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Our family went to Joe's Seafood to celebrate our sons: elder off to junior year at UofI Business, junior to first year of high school at Marist. Everyone enjoyed their meals, from excellent bread basket (for young men, it makes a difference, believe me), to sharing some of our entrees of exceptional crab legs and great filet mignon. The mac and cheese was exceptional, spinach not so much. Grilled halibut and crab stuffed shrimp excellent, and the chocolate fudge pie, too."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "We have been going to Joe's for several years now. Every visit the food has been fantastic and the service excellent! We have gone in on the spur of the moment and ate at the bar and we have dined in the dining room when we want to have a nice dinner together as a couple. We highly recommend it!"

  • "The food was great! We would definitely go back and recommend getting the Alaskan King Crabs and roasted corn!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Food was great, service was impeccable.loved the crabcake appitizer and the bone-in rib eye was one of these steaks I ever had. Loved the ambience with the waiters in tuxedos and white gloves. The King Crab legs being served to us cracked and opened at our table is a nice touch. Pricey but nice for special occasions."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Erin (server) and Dan (barkeep) were terrific! Prices were high for the quality of food received. Noisy and so crowded in the dining room that you couldn't move your chair without bumping into someone else. Not for a quiet evening or much conversation."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Our server, Matt, was wonderful and all wait staff did their jobs perfectly. We never had a dirty dish around yet never were asked "if we were finished" and never felt hovered on to clear our dishes...beverages refilled without a wait...just great in every way. They were all very skilled and warm. Loved our experience."

  • "I cannot express how great our experience was at Joe's! Our waitress was friendly, and she made great food recommendations. We were even given a complimentary dessert because it was our first visit! We couldn't believe how great everything turned out - the experience and the food. We would definitely return to Joe's, and I recommend that everyone visit once; you'll definitely want to return."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "If I could give Joe's more than 5 stars, I would. There is no restaurant I have dined at that provides the consistent top notch quality of food, and reliably exceptional service I get at Joe's. There are trendier places, but they all wish they could deliver Joe's quality with the kind of class you get at Joe's. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the food and they always make me feel like my table is the most important table in the room. Bravo Joe!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Joe's is the place to eat in Chicago. Amazing Steaks and Seafood. I have been coming here for years and don't plan on stopping. The level of service is amazing. I put pressure on them by booking reservations not too far in advance, but they always do their best to accomodate me (Thank you Abby)"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Joe's is Chicago's best restaurant. Hands down. Outstanding steaks, seafood, stone crabs, even fried chicken--the best. Service is superb: Professional, friendly yet unobtrusive. It's always a special occasion at Joe's."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This is the second time we have eaten at Joes. The food is fantastic!! The service is out of this world, our server came up with great recommondations and suggestions to where he built our meals. We had the lobster & snow crab which was excellent, the couple with us had steaks that where cooked to profection. Make sure you try to book your reservations a week in advance if you are trying to go on Saturday because the are so busy. I will go back to Joes next time Im in Chicago!!!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I've eaten at Joe's a number of times in the past, but this time I was not satisfied as before. The Grilled Halibut was so small, I was finished in just a few bites. The Coconut Cream Pie had too much STIFF whipped cream on the top, and the crust was half-baked. Joe's used to be one of my all-time favorite spots to eat, but in my mind, it has fallen a few notches. I must add that the service was superb. Our Server, Dan, was Top-Notch!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Loved the pacific crab claw and cole slaw - crab stuffed shrimp tasty too! Great service as always. Couldn't resist the half order of key lime and coconut cream pies!"

  • "Excellent food and service. My daughter and I both had the filet mignon, and it was wonderful."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Everything was great except that it can get really loud!!!!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Everything was very good except for the Hash Browns. Way too much grease in the bottom of the dish. Being really health conscious my wife and I could not eat them."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "I recently dined at Joe's Seafood with my fiancé. We were giving a booth which was quiet and romantic. I ordered the Pacific Stone crabs and he ordered the Florida Stone crabs. The Florida stone crabs are sweeter but the Pacific ones were meatier. Overall, we preferred the Florida Stone crabs. We had a side of cream spinach which was delicious. For dessert, we ordered the Key Lime Pie which is the original Florida recipe. Since we primarily reside in Florida, we can attest that this was indeed a true Key Lime recipe. The coffee was delicious and we were each served an individual silver pot. Overall, our dining experience was great, service excellent, and we can recommend this restaurant without reservation! But do make reservations!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "The food was great. However, the service was slow. A waiter did not take our order for 10 to 15 minutes. The busboy had to alert someone after my husband went to speak with the gentleman who seated us. He apologized to my husband for not assigning a waiter to our table. But once we did get a waiter things went smoothly and we received a free slice of key lime pie."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Joes has become one of my top 3 spots in Chicago. The best place in town for seafood and fish and I also love the fried chicken and steak. Before you leave EAT THE PIE!!!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "YOu can't go wrong with JOe's. The food is terrific and the service is even better. I highly recommend Joe's to anyone, and you don't have to be a seafood lover!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We continue to keep coming back there for special occasions because it is exactly that, special. My family and I consider it a treat. We have always had nothing but great experiences there. We will continue to keep coming back for sure!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "With reservation, seated immediately on a Tuesday night. Service was excellent, on time and attentive but not overbearing and great command of the menu and history of Joes. We completed our meal in about 90 minutes and had plenty of time to get to our event. Portions were "just right" and we felt satisfied but not overstuffed at the end of the meal. Our only regret is that there were not more leftovers to take home and enjoy again. Petite filet was melt in your mouth perfect. Fantastic, but premium fine dining experience, definitely recommend for a business dinner where price is not a factor, or for a special occasion."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Joe's is simply the best seafood restaurant around. The service is top-notch, but the food is the star of the show. I highly recommend it for a memorable evening."

    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "I had heard many rave reviews from friends and family about this restaurant; I did not find it one I need to revisit. The wait staff was inattentive even in giving us the bill. My lobster roll was plain with the dressing very unevenly spread on the bread. Perhaps we were there on a bad day."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "The ambience and steak and shrimp coctails were amazing. The rock crab was a little soft, not mushy but not firm. Waiter was terrific and desserts heaven. We would deffinately come back again."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Have been going to Chicago for year but never tried this restaurant. After reading the reviews, decided to give it a try. Wow! We were not disappointed. The fresh salmon was up to Seattle quality. It was prepared medium rare, the way it was meant to be eaten. It was outstanding. The wine list was great and pleased with the recommendation of the waiter when our original choice was not available. Now we know why we had to settle with either take a 5 or 8:30 reservation."

  • "We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with another couple. The experience was exceptional from the moment we sat down. We lucked out and were seated in a corner booth which I requested on open table. Otherwise most of the seating is in one big room. Food and service were also exceptional!"
