A word from Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab - Washington DC
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 features the signature 16 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon and 22 oz. New York Strip Steak. Matched with Joe's signature side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of the famous key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the grand bar or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent execution on entrees of seafoods alas, seared scallops, fisherman's platter and whole Dover sole. The sides of green beans, hash browns and onion strings were all nicely done. However, the biggest disappointment of the evening were the order of select stone crabs. The were very small and unfortunately were shattered into so many pieces we were all picking out hard shells from almost every bite. A very huge disappointment. Very unlike the original Joe' Stone Crabs. It may be not the best season for stone crabs in July, but whatever they serve should be properly cracked without shattering into small shards and pieces that cannot be removed before eating."

  • "Great food and great service -- we were a large party and very well taken care of. Prices are high but worth it!"

  • "Same great quality as Miami's original Joe's Stone Crab, but with improved service (you can reserve, no need to wait for hours to be sat) and equally pricey for top entrees although with more variety of less expensive options."

  • "Joes in DC is a great place for anniversaries or special occasions but is also great just to go and get great food at if your around the White House area. The staff and waiters are amazing and very helpful, don't worry if you haven't ever been to a five star place they treat you like family not like an idiot. They also have great wine and beer selections but if you just want a coke they have that as well. You can also get your leftovers boxed up and take them with you. On my top 5 list of places I've ever been and I will be back again."

  • "I looked forward to dining here as I know there are only two others (Chicago and Vegas). The service was very nice. Our server has been with the company for over 10 years and was very knowledgeable. She told us about the other locations and how the chain began with the Original Joe's in Miami. The ambiance was nice but not what I thought it would be. You can definitely dress up for a nice romantic dinner here, but you will also fit in just fine with khakis and a polo shirt. The food was good but nothing blew me away. I'm not a key lime pie person but I did have a bite of my friend's and it was pretty great. Based on the food, I can't say I'm anxious to get back here."

  • "Both the food and the service are top notch. The staff are so friendly and attentive. Don't miss the stone crab claws as an appetizer and the key lime pie as a dessert. Choose any entrée because you won't be disappointed."

  • "As a life long fan of Joe's Stone Crab in Miami we were very excited to try Joe's in DC. Joe's captured the essence of the DC scene in atmosphere and quality service. The extraordinary menu will keep us coming back! Crabs were out of season but still enjoyable. The filet was out-of-this-world! Thanks for bringing a Miami favorite to the District!"

  • "This was a birthday celebration, but all of us had a limited time to spend at the restaurant. The staff was very responsive to our needs. It makes us want to go back. Many restaurants forget that service is a big part of the experience and Joe's excelled. The food was excellent and we had lots of choices. The space is beautiful and centrally located. The reservation process was easy and facilitated our dining experience. We will return."

Then in Vegas.Now DC. I definitely will be back. First class service, atmosphere and definitely food. Can you come to Memphis?"

  • "LOVE this restaurant! My experience was great. I selected this restaurant for a 40th birthday dinner. The host (David) was pleasant, attentive and provided recommendations. I ordered the spinach stuffed mushrooms (out of this world), crab cakes and sweet potatoes with praline pecan butter. This is a hidden jewel and I will be recommending this restaurant to my friends. I will be back!"

  • "This restaurant has been leveraging the original Florida Joe's for a long time. The ambiance and service is pretentious but I'm sure tourists are impressed. Pace was glacial. You're going to spend a lot of money here and there are many better steak houses and seafood restaurants. Lettuce Entertainment Restaurants are normally better than this."

  • "Celebrated wedding anniversary and couldn't have found a better place. We noted on our Open Table reservation that this was a special night and restaurant staff repetitively wished us well (so nice!!). Our server, Dell, was amazing! He made food and drink recommendations - all were spot on. The Chilean Sea Bass; Medium Stone Crabs; Roasted Corn; Fried asparagus; and, Pimm's Cup (mixed drink) were outstanding. Dell delighted us by treating us to three - yes, THREE - of his favorite desserts and a champagne toast in honor of our anniversary. It really made an already perfect experience over the top. I am such a fan. LOVED IT!"

  • "We went here for the first night of our trip based on the reviews, and it did not disappoint. The food was very good but what made it great was the service. Everyone was friendly and our waiter was phenomenal. Even the management was nice. We had ordered an appetizer and the manager came over to tell us it was not available anymore. Instead of asking if we wanted something else, he offered a free substitute instead. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys quality food and service. Also, try the Havana pie dessert."

  • "Had a great "Date Night" dinner. This is our third experience at Joe's, Miami, Las Vegas and now DC. As always the service was impeccable (ask for Dino), the atmosphere was cozy and the food was unforgettable. Everything was delicious right down to the banana cream pie I had for dessert. Great location too, just steps from the White House. Highly recommended"

  • "I don't eat out much at ala carte digs nor am I really into spending like that though I can afford it. But when I do eat at these places it's nice, especially when others are paying for it. This time I paid. What do you expect from a place like this. It was good food, empecable service and great ambiance."

  • "Highly recommend this restaurant when in DC. If you love soft shell crabs then you would love this restaurant. They fly in them daily from Florida and they are well worth the price. They also have excellent steaks and seafood. The wine list is very extensive an the waiter will happily help you choose one that fits you. This restaurant is not inexpensive but well worth a visit. The bar area has a great assortment of drinks and apps if you just want something simple. We highly recommend. This has been our second visit and Oscar, our waiter was one of the BEST waiters! Thank you for making our 18th Anniversary celebration special :) We will be back when in DC again."

The service was fantastic and the restaurant itself is gorgeous. Even the bathrooms are fancy! I would definitely go back for another special event, we celebrated a birthday and it was definitely worth it."

  • "And maybe your home mortgage for collateral. The rooms at Joe's are ecquisite. Pillars, chandeliers, high ceilings, gorgeous bar. The food is very good (although the lyonnaise potatoes were disappointing). Everything else was very good -- the crabs, caesar salad, salmon. The lime pie was the best ever tasted. However, what an unpleasant surprise that everything is a la carte -- the entrees come with no sides -- and overall the food and atmosphere did not overcome the expense of eating there. We and our friends will have to put Joe's in the special occasion category because there is no way we can be frequent diners there."
