Joe's is consistently one of the best steakhouses in town, and you shouldn't even order steak. Stone crabs are where it's at.

About 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.

Another wonderful meal at Joe’s. Can’t make ourselves eat anywhere else when we are in Chicago. Everything is so delicious ❤️❤️❤️I guess if I had one complaint it would be not enough room left for dessert😫

Our meal and our service were absolutely top-notch; they didn’t miss on anything. Had three apps (crab cake, shrimp and tuna tartare) and all were spot on perfect. Our dinners were filet and sea bass and both were amazing. My wife and I had a wonderful evening and will absolutely be back again in the future. We were too full to eat desert there so we took it home and it was great. This restaurant is worth every penny for the price. Quite possibly the best meal I have ever eaten.

Food and service great. We go with our friends every year to celebrate our anniversaries.
The only thing that was terribly annoying is where we were seated. A round for 6 people was great but we were in a VERY BUSY traffic row. My husbands chair was bumped multiple times and he was quite annoyed. When the restaurant is busy (which I suspect is often) it is advisable to ask to be seated away fro the main row where patrons and servers move quickly the whole evening.
I certainly will follow my own advise in the future, It would have made for a much better dining experience, esp for my husband

Awesome awesome awesome. Everything was perfect — great service, amazing food. Stone crab was very good. A must go to place if in Chicago. Even if you’re not seafood fan, they have amazing steaks and other options that are just as terrific. Highly recommend this place.

We got seated at a table by the kitchen that was pushed up against the wall. It was my birthday and I was with my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and my 90 year old grandmother. The wait staff continuously knocked my grandmothers chair and mine as they walked by to the kitchen and my parents were sitting up against the wall. It was not a good birthday experience unfortunately.

Loved the food. We both had the fillets and they were very good. Service was prompt and courteous. Prices were good for a high end steak and seafood restaurant in Chicago. It ran about $70 per person with a cocktail each.

Our girlfriends' weekend in the city is an annual Christmas event. Joe's is a must for all of us. Incredible food, great servers, and true Chicago energy. We have never been disappointed. Everyone is so friendly and the servers are extremely helpful with choosing a great wine, helping with menu choices, and even with dessert. We LOVE Joe's . . . all eight of us look forward to it every year.

Six girlfriends who take in Chicago the first weekend of December every year. Joe's had excellent service, food options, drinks and ambiance. Sadly, we were way too full to try the enticing desserts. Very knowledgeable, efficient staff. Would, definitely, return. Great start to the holiday season.

We were a bit perturbed that we had to wait. They told us they were setting up our table when we walked in, but it was at least 15 minutes before we we called. They could have said have a seat at the bar or something, but we stood the whole time, thinking it would only be a minimal wait. The food was very good and properly prepared. Our server, Denise was terrific and knew the menu from top to bottom. It was my third time there and I would recommend it and plan to return at some point, just not right away. It is very noisy and pricey.
