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. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's also features signature prime steaks, hand-carved by master butchers such as our 24 oz. Bone-In Rib Eye. 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.

    The restaurant was great...super service! Open table however messed us up. We had requested the reservation for 11/22 at 8:30 and it said we were confirmed. However, when we arrived we were told our reservation was for 11/23. There would be at least an hour wait or more. Thank goodness for an awesome maitre d who snuck us in after only about 15 minutes.

    A wonderful place fit for foodies. The food is amazing as always. From steak to fish and crab claws to lobster tail, this place has it all. My only advice I would give, if you are going for the stone crab- do it either at the beginning to middle of the season for the best tasting claws. If you going here for this reason, you owe it to yourself to experience the best. Wonderful staff, great food, awesome atmosphere... a total package.

  • The BEST TIME
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    What can I say...Joe's is the place. My fiancee and I were able to get a table late in the evening at 10:30 p.m. with our Open Table reservation. It was our "satiation" and we were having a phenomenal time that day. We topped it off with a fabulous meal. You have to get a booth seating, also. It's cozy. It's quiet and romantic to boot. The food speaks for itself. We are both foodies and we LOVE stone crab. The claws are enormous, the crab bisque was perfect and we are going BACK during the Thanksgiving Day weekend. Thanks again Joe's for making our "staycation" even more memorable.

    I'm a long time regular at Joe's. It's my favorite restaurant for fried chicken and anything else I have a taste for. Every time I go to Joe's I'm always in for not only a great meal….but something always special happens. This visit was no different. Our server noticed my "crab" pin and treated us to dessert. That was a first and a complete surprise! Once again…Joe's did not disappoint!

    Joe's seafood, steak and stone crab excels in all categories! The restaurant features a classic atmosphere with over the top dishes, wine and service. And speaking of service - our compliments to Nick, our professional and friendly server! In regard to Joe's menu, we highly recommend the fantastic king crab appetizer, fresh Ceasar salad with white anchovies, char-grilled filet mignon entree with complementary potatoes and the key lime pie for dessert.

    Hello, I just would like to mention that the service at Joe's was very poor. WE will not come back although the food was excellent. The server was not hospitable, he did not take the time to build a connection with us and did not make us comfortable at all. At the end, I gave the server a gift card, and cash for the bill. When he came back, he just brought the receipt back without my change. He then said do you need your change back, I immediately felt so insulted. You do not ask a customer if he or she needs the change back, a server should automatically bring the change back. I told him no because I felt uncomfortable. He should have automatically brought my change back. Or when I gave him the cash and the gift card, he then could have asked do you need change back, but he just brought me the receipt back. We were so insulted. At the bar, the bartender was not professional as well. He did not take the time to say how is your day something like that, but immediately approached us and said what do you need for drinks-so poor. Poor service. I would say one of the worst service we have ever had. Our feelings were hurt. We are not coming back. Please take the time to retrain your people to be hospitable. After all the job involves to be hospitable, warm and friendly towards your customers. Thank you for ruining our birthday night. Thank you. Poor service. The worst service we have ever had. We are definitely hurt. It was a birthday night to celebrate. We will always remember that poor service. Thank you.

    We visit from Singapore , and make sure we get to Joe's every time! The service is excellent, the ambiance exciting and the food amazing. This time we had an awesome steak and out- of-this-world Alaskan crab. Ah the wine, too, was wonderful. What a sommelier we had - what a steward of the wine he recommended- Silver Oak 2007. We drank nectar that night.

White table cloths, but so comfortable that you could wear jeans and still feel at home. Make your reservations as early as you can-- I made mine a month in advance and could only get a table at 9pm!

    I've had steak in other steak houses here in Chicago and in other cities. Nothing comes close to the 24oz bone-in Ribeye I had this past Saturday. It truly it was the best steak I've ever had. It was nice and charred on the outside, tender and medium in the inside, with just the right amount of seasoning. In one word, PERFECT!

    Took a friend/client here for lunch and it was great as ususal. We started with some scallops as an appetizer and they were succulent. My friend had the crab salad and I took a chance and got the fried chicken. Kudo's on both, Fried chicken at Joes?? Give it a shot. Never have a bad meal here. Can't leave without dessert. We were going to "split" the sweet potato pecan pie but when they brought it we just got a second piece. The place was hoppin' our server was great and it made for a terrific Friday afternoon.
