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.

    I eat here almost every time I come to Chicago. The food, service and atmosphere is always the same...great! One of us had the bone-in filet, another the rebeye and I had the Dover sole. Excellent dinner. Just like the one in Vegas.

    Premium pricing requires premium experiences. Ours was anything but. Party of 6 with 7pm reservation. Between our waiter and the manager, we got 4 different stories on availability of the stone crab. This is their signature appetizer. Never fully understood what we got or why. Then dinner was served with 1 incorrect entree and 1 entree missing. The wrong entree was replaced in about 5 minutes. We were finished eating by the time the missing entree was served. The waiter apologized profusely... he appeared shocked by the whole episode & gave us a couple of free desserts. Never heard from the manager. As a former 2x a year customer, I cannot recommend at these prices...

    Long my favorite steak place in Chicago, if not the country, Joe's was a huge disappointment this time. They seem to think they are just too good to be bothered with great service any more. A $50 medium rare steak was medium well, the second time this has happened in the last two trips. When asked to take a look they seemed more insulted than concerned. There was no offer to do anything, free drink, dessert, etc, for the diner who had to sit for 10 minutes and watch their companions eat. The wine markup has gotten absurd. A $36 Quilceda Creek Red, not the Cab, is $185. When I asked about it the wine guy said they paid $60 and refused to believe the real cost. So, it's time to start looking for a new favorite steak place.

    This is our go to birthday celebration place. Always energetic & bustling atmosphere. The stone crabs are legendary but the steaks are among the best in Chicago & my Dover sole with brown butter sauce was the best fish I've ever had. The sides are very generous, 4 for a table of 8 adults was enough. The tuna tartare & roasted corn were delicious. The waiters are very attentive without hovering & the hot towels at the end of the meal are a nice touch. Desserts are decadent, the peanut butter pie is so rich it's hard to finish & the key lime pie is creamy & fresh. Wine list is very good & good selection of classic cocktails. Great dining experience.

    Could have been a better experience if we had a better server. He was really quiet and did not talk at all to explain things or paella anything. It was our first time there and with all the reviews we heard from friends we were disappointed. I think the location is great but service was poor. I cant see the difference between any other steak house in the city then? Competitors at least give better service and the food was comparable as well.

    I don't typically like chain restaurants and actually work at another LEY. I was skeptical. Nothing seemed rushed or unimportant to the waiters. We look young but we have the money to spend if you give us a good reason. Was worth it. Id say it was his favorite bday and I enjoyed it too.

    Great place for special occasion. I took my husband to Joe's for his birthday dinner and he loved it. The upside was getting a reservation at a decent time so the sooner you plan things out the better. Also, it was pretty loud due to big parties being sitted next to our table. Overall, great food, wine and outstanding service.

    Been traveling to Chicago for about 15 years, and Joe's is always one of the places we eat at, at least once during our trips. Staff will accommodate you with special requests that aren't on the menu. Bar area is fantastic for a pre-meal drink, or if you are lucky enough to grab a high top since you don't have reservations. About Reservations..Make sure you get them, weeks in advance, especially if there are big events going on in town like trade shows.

    This has become our favorite restaurant when we stay in Chicago. The reason I did not rate the service excellent was because this last waiter we had did not meet our expectations like the others.we have always had good service except on our last visit. We will not however let one bad apple spoil the bunch, so to speak. Every one is allowed an off day. We will continue to dine here every chance we get.

    If you want Crab Legs, they make it so, so easy. A ton of meat, and all easily cut and open and ready to be devoured. Our waiter recommended I get them slightly chilled rather than steamed due to the freshness. They were good, really good, but I can't help but think they would have been better slightly steamed. It fixed my need for crab for a few weeks, but next time, I'm going steamed.

    Scheduled a lunch for 3 pm to meet up with my financial advisor. The effort to get seated was off putting. But then we were seated and the server came out. A different world. She went through the menu Pointed out the luncheon specials which were an out standing value. I had the ten ounce portion of Crab legs Wow wonderful. Wanted to go low carb substituted a grilled tomato for the potato. Added a sald for a buck What a salad Wonderful greens and dressing. The food was first rate including the grilled corn. Neither my advisor or I were up for dessert so we packed them in to go containers. Won brownie points from cleaning lady and security guard at my building. They are urging me to go back. For lunch. I expected a lot but got more

    We went to celebrate my Mom's and Uncle's 93rd birthday (both deceased). Joe's is a family tradition dating back to the 1920's in Miami Beach. The last time I ate at a Joe's was in Las Vegas and the dover sole was outstanding. This time it was mediocre at best. It was also impossible to talk due to the high noise level. All and all, not what we expected.

    Joe's always delivers on great tasting, quality food. Most portions are sized to share and you can order a half portion of most of the desserts. We like to go early or it gets a little to crowded. Especially if you're not in a booth. Dinner for two: we shared the following - shrimp cocktail which was a little over done ($15.95 for 4 jumbo shrimp), a side of Jennie's potatoes - excellent - ($9.95 for flavored mashed potatoes), King Crab legs - excellent ($69.95), seafood salad - one of my favorites ($21.95), and Banana cream pie for dessert (somewhere in the $7 or $8 range). For a total bill with taxes and a 20% tip (no alcohol or drinks other than water) came to $165.00. Joe's is one of our favorites, but bring the Benjamins.

    Went here while on a business trip- vibrant restaurant , everyone was happy, loved the waiter who made great suggestions. Amazing king crab entree prepared at the table, delicious/healthy. "Whale" appetizer ( rock crab, king crab, shrimp/scallop ceviche) was incredible and fresh. Salads were delicious. Great restaurant scene with large bar. Staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Great neighborhood for walking after dinner. Will come here everytime I visit Chicago

    We went to Joe's to celebrate our 30th anniversary and had an awesome experience! The ambiance and service, from the moment we walked in the door, was impeccable--setting the mood for the occasion. The food was by far one of the best meals we ever had. It was probably the best meal in any restaurant by far. Although we have often been slightly disappointed at other establishments--even expensive ones--Joe's did not disappoint. Every course of the meal was outstanding! It was well worth every dollar spent and we are looking forward to dining at Joe's again soon. This place is a must for anyone looking for an amazing meal and experience in Chicago!

  • Disappointing Anniversary Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/2/2014
    We had been to Joe's once before and had a great experience. We decided to go back for our 42nd Anniversary dinner celebration. Everything was great except for our server Matt. We could hear the servers around us describing dishes in detail and giving history of Chicago, the perfect dining experience. We did not get that experience ourselves. When I simply asked Matt to describe the Scallop dish , he said , "Well...they're scallops." He was very short, and just ruined Joe's for us. The food was good and ambiance was great, but because of the service we received, we will probably not be back.

    This was my first lunch in many years going to Joe's, but the quality of the food, service and specials were absolutely just as exceptional as going there for dinner, but without the crowds. We we seated immediately a comfortable booth with plenty of space for the variety of items that we ordered from the lunch special menus. The service was the "hovering inattention" that one expects at a top quality seafood and steak restaurant in the Near North area, but the tab was remarkably small given the quality and quantity of food we ordered.

    Food was excellent it was our anniversary so the server asked whats the occasion and we told him he then proceeded to bring us 2 deserts and 2 glasses of champagne! excellent service and food The only negative I could say would be don't order the chocolate martini, they use soy milk and ice cream in the drink. It did not taste good but they did replace with another drink

    My wife and I had an anniversary dinner at Joe's on a Saturday night. Food and service were great. Only a couple of nits; one, being a twosome we were packed in close to two other couples ( would have preferred just a bit more space), and two, while the bone-in ribeye tasted great, I was surprised that it was not thicker for the price paid. Notwithstanding these, we had a wonderful meal and grata time.
