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.

    Reservations are a must, but cash is king and walk-ins welcome, providing they pay the headwaiter. We confirmed our reservations day of, arrived and checked in on time and the head 'host' told the headwaiter to seat us when a 'regular' jumped ahead and palmed him $40 dollars during their "hi - how are you" handshake. Guess who got the nice booth in the corner? We were seated a few minutes later at a 4 top by the kitchen door. My son was gracious to take the seat that took the brunt of servers pushing past as the tables were closely pushed together. The only redeeming factor was our server - Denise. Incredibly professional & polished. Food was good, but overpriced. Not on my itinerary next time around.

    I've been to Joes a few times and have tried a number of things on the menu but this time I got the 2 things they are most known for. Our group of 4 split the large order of king crab for an appetizer. It was $80 which is steep but we all thought it was definitely worth it. For my meal I got the 16 oz bone in filet and if it was appropriate to do in public, I would have been chewing on the bone like a dog.

    We have been here before and were a little disappointed with the meal. First of all, the room was so loud you could barely hear across the table. Secondly, the meal was good but nothing was served hot. Maybe the kitchen had an off night, but for the money you pay your 43 dollar filet should be steaming hot!!!

    A local bartender and patrons recommend Joe's, and we couldn't have had a better experience anywhere else. The earliest reservation we could get was 10:30, and it was worth staying up for. The server, Darren was amazing, thoughtful, and funny. All his recommendations were amazing! Even though it was late, the food was fresh and the room was humming with happiness. Joe's was a perfect ending for our last evening in Chicago. I highly recommend to any traveler.

    Wow, top notch all the way around. We had been there once previously, had enjoyed it, but was a little underwhelmed by the service we received from our waiter. This time - wow! We started with the stone crab as an appetizer (superb!), a ribeye steak as our main course (with such great flavor!), creamed spinach and the hashed brown potatoes for sides. Hashed browns at a top notch dinner? Yes, they were great. And then had the key lime pie for dessert. We debated about having the chiffon pumpkin pie instead and our waiter so wanted for us to try it that he comped us a piece. What a special evening!

    We got to Joe's about every six weeks because our mother likes it so much but for the third time in a row , the experience has been less than stellar due to the entree missing the mark and the service being less than top notch . My Chilean seabass was over cooked , our waiter was going thru the motions , my baked potato was undercooked . However, The vegetable chopped salad and fried oysters were delicious . The key lime pie was delicious . But our waitress could have cared less about us, she was going thru the motions . It was an adequate experience and made me ask the unthinkable , where else should we try next time we want good seafood ?
