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
  • "This place reminds me of Gibson's when I walked in, but not Gibson's quality. It was just average to me, the steak was just ok."

  • "Our evening at Joe's was fabulous. Excellent selection of food and wine. Outstanding service to make the night remembered. Not cheap, but highly recommended for a special night out. Excellent!!!"

  • "The food was superb! In fact, with two very minor issues, this was one of the very best dining experiences I've ever had. The two issues: (1) While you probably can't do anything about this, the dining room was extremely loud and noisy, making it very difficult to hear the other members of my party talk; and (2) I don't know if this is your standard approach, but our waitperson began our meal by interrogating us as to our first names. I wasn't interested in establishing a first-name relationship with the waitperson, and found it annoying that she persisted, even repeating our names a couple of times. Just have the staff provide attentive service and serve great food, and let go of the "I'm your best friend" routine."

  • "My girlfriend and I went to Joe's looking forward to have their renowned crab and, not only we were not let down, the experience was outstanding. My reputation as a good foodie might be arguable, but I am incredibly picky with the details, especially service. And my experience at Joe's with service was 5 star, could not be better. We felt constantly attended, never intruded. Our waiter offer guidance when requested but also without asking, just sensing a slight hesitance. Highly professional, not snobby. Helpful, not condescending (yes, sometimes I have felt patronised at high-standard restaurants!). A waiter like this cannot be that good on its own, I am sure he has a fantastic team and a well-managed restaurant behind. A simply must."

  • "We accidentally found this place but can't stop comming back! The food and service are both outstanding. Our favorites include the grilled onion stuffed rolls (free), filet, and king crab legs. We always request Darren as our waiter, he is extremely attentive! Enjoy!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Lacks intimacy-banquette seating very tight (we are not large people!)-definitely not romantic. Food served a little too quickly (crab legs served chilled not the best with drawn butter) felt rushed. Experience on the whole a little too "formula""
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "This is my 5th time at this restaurant and it NEVER fails with the customer service, food and cocktails. The atmosphere is wonderful. The sour apple jolly ranchers martini is my favorite cocktail. You CAN NOT go wrong with the Snow Crabs! I LOVE IT!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Favorite restaurant in Chicago. Classic menu with fabulous food and great service. The cole slaw is a special treat that keeps bringing us back. We've never had a bad meal. Pricey but worth it."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Although there continues to be a shortage of Stone Crab, the Alaskan King Crab is so delectable that I almost did not miss them. The Rock Claws are not as good as the Stone Crab Claws, no matter what the waiters intimate! The vino list is very diverse in its offerings, and more than adequate in my view. The meal was stunningly good, the service polite but not overbearing, and I enjoyed Joe's as always. Recommendation: Alaskan King Crab Steamed or cold; Salmon; and that corn! Very tasty indeed. SUGGESTION: Bring back the fried lobster tail appetizer!!!!! PLEASE!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "You definitely need a reservation for Joe's. This place is hopping! Even with a reservation, we waited almost half an hour for our table but they nicely made up for it with dessert and coffee/tea for my wife and I. Food was fantastic. We'll be back again!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The host was great. Made even strangers feel like a regular. The waiter was attentive. Bus boy was clumsy. Decor old, worn out and stuffy. Crab bisque was in need of seasoning. I had the bone in filet, told it was the signature steak, waiter said the best in Chicago. It lacked seasoning (waiter did bring seasoning for me to do,strange). It was tough and hard, poor flavor.My wife had the filet and lobster.Her steak echoed mine.Lobster was good but presentation poor. I think people go here because they think this is how you are suppose to dine for an occasion. Overall I would recommend others places for value for the money. A $55 steak should melt in your mouth and be seasoned.Place was decorated in the early 80's and not up dates since."

  • "Our server was very helpful and attentive. We enjoyed having him be our waiter. We would return to this restaurant while in Chicago."

  • "We visit Joe's every time we're in Chicago, and have never been disappointed. This place is always hopping. It has a great old school feel, like Sinatra might walk in at any moment. The food has always been delicious, no matter what we've ordered. Service is impeccable. The place has wonderful ambiance. You can't go wrong taking friends (or maybe a business prospect) here. We tried some new things this time for our lunch: my wife had the scallops-over-bacon dish (she loved it, although it was a little heavy); and I had the grilled mahi-mahi tacos, which were wonderful. Going back to Joe's is a no-brainer."

  • "Food was incredible. Highly recommend the appetizer sampler. Sea bass was unbelievable."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The fish was good however, presentation was absolutely horrible. I would have been embarrassed if I was the chef and saw how my food was displayed. We also split a mozzarella salad (or so we thought) they handed me a plate with 2 quarter tomatoes the size of a shelled walnut. The mozzarella was barely noticeable. For what they charged, unbelievable. Again, I would be very embarrassed if I managed or owned that restaurant."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "It was an off nite at Joes . The service was not top notch: our server had a cold , the busboy was positively rough around the edges . My martini was mediocre but the chopped veggie salad was divine , the fried oysters divine and the chileAn sea bass was delicious . But I want a total package . It was the b team . However, Our maître d was as excellent as ever ."

  • "Very prompt seating and service. Food offering and quality both excellent, as always. Knowledgeable and sensible recommendations. "It doesn't get much better than this," would be my summary."

  • "Right now, Joe's is featuring a Door County cherry pie which is incredible. You also cannot go wrong with their key lime pie."

  • "what can I say. you will never have a bad meal here. the service is over-the-top. food is as GOOD as you can get ANYWHERE. from the appetizers to the soup and then your entrée with sides. FABULOUS...."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The seafood tasted fresh enough but the menu was pretty limited. I was disappointed by the lack of any lake fish offerings. Price was way too high given the very mediocore food. Everything had way too much salt in it, even the pie. They sent the pie over because of an extensive wait for a table that I believe was because they let another party take our table and failed to realize it for awhile. No manager checked in on us and the pie was just brought out. Id have rathered they took something off our bill."

  • "Food first-class, everything was perfect and the service was great.. Come here every time I am in Chicago.. Amazing quality!"

  • "My husband and I went to Joe's for the first time. It was a dining experience we thoroughly enjoyed. Service was great. I look forward to dining at Joe's again. I felt as if the staff went over and beyond to be friendly and professional. This was our first time dining here. We look forward to going again. This place set a very high standard! The food was delicious... There is not one negative thing I can say about this establishment."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I'm from México City and every time I have visited Chicago I've had dinner at Joe's. It's well worth to dine here. Service is one of the best you can find in Chicago and the food is excellent. The place can be a bit noisy depending on the hour, but nothing to discourage you to pay a visit. The regular menu is outstanding, but remember to try the specials. You'll get surprised! If you are a wine lover, wine list may let you down, although you always find some good wine that will save the night. Make sure to make a reservation at least one day in advance."

  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Joe's this past weekend and it could not have been better. When reserving on Open Table I put a note that it was our anniversary and we'd like a quieter table away from the kitchen & bathrooms. Though we got seated about 20 minutes past our 8pm reservation, the host and manager were incredibly accommodating and did everything they could to make it special night. Our server was outstanding and we now fully understand the hype around Joe's. Though we didn't get any stone crab (sold out), food was still great- pie left something to be desired though. All in all, sparkling recommendation from me!"

  • "This remains my favorite place to take out of town guests. Perfect food, perfect service, wide variety of food. This time our party had a turkey burger, fish & chips, and a fillet. All were amazing. Side dishes and desserts are incredible too. Packed most evenings, don't unprepared or not hungry. Although it started in Florida, Joe's presents the best our city has to offer, each and every visit."

  • "This was my first time eating at your establishment and it was referred to me by my best friend. I wanted to take my boss, who was visiting from out of town, to a nice restaurant. The ambiance was great, and the food and service was outstanding. I woill highly recommend it to oters. I had an overall great experience."

  • "First time I've eaten Stone Crabs out of season (ie frozen) I don't recommend it, just not the same!! But other fish and steak are so good at Joe's you can still have a great meal there without them."

  • "60th B-Day, Claws not in season, soggy, very disappointing, Halibut was the best we have had in awhile, finished our dinner, poured the last glass of wine, here comes Dustin with the birthday dessert!! What?? wanted 2 shots of Maria Brizzard, hard to find, but we told him if not, bring us 2 chilled white Sambucca, Dustin brought us a capful each of the black Sambucca. I did complain to the Mgr and they gave me a small credit, bill was still $300+ . The waiter behind us was great, he talked and interacted with his guests, the wait staff is a problem. I called prior to the dinner and asked about Birthdays, Crab Claws, etc.. She should of told me that there was a ltd amount of claws and that they were frozen, not fresh!! Probably won't be back"

  • "Joes-even the best fail or fall- service was excellent but the food was not up to the standard we have come to expect. Steaks were just ok and they used to be superb, scallops mundane, the halibut was excellent. Left feeling sad."

  • "My husband & I went to Chicago for our anniversary weekend. I did some research (Trip Advisor) on the top restaurants in the area and Joe's was on the list. We were able to make a reservation for Saturday evening, which was perfect. All of the staff were excellent. We loved our server (Darrin, I think?). All of the food was superb. We would love to return sometime!"
