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.

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.

These restaurants tend to define a city, and make up the places that you absolutely cannot miss if you want to have any credibility as a restaurant-informed person in a major metropolis.

Always love this place! When doing a trade show in Chicago once a year - we book our reservation two months in advance to be sure to get a table. It's an annual tradition that my employees love!

Joe’s never fails to please with great food and efficient service. Only fault is that service is so efficient that you can sometimes feel rushed. So many people waiting for a table that this is probably a good thing. In any regard, Joe’s is fabulous.

As always, a quiet, civilized retreat from the bustling city streets. Polished and competent with a clubby feel. Old wood, tile, tuxedoed waiters. Classic, traditional menu and preparation. Pristine fresh oysters, stone crab, silverware, linens, crystal. Quality ingredients only, and unbeatable for pure comfort.

Every meal I've had at Joe's has been good, and we frequently celebrate special occasions there, but the service on our past visit was really lacking. When the restaurant called to confirm our reservation they made sure to note we would be celebrating my husband's birthday, which I confirmed. When we checked in at the restaurant, the host also confirmed we were celebrating a special occasion. But we then proceeded to waited at least 30 minutes for our table (seated after 8:30 for an 8pm reservation). When we were seated, the same host who'd greeted us originally told us dessert was on the restaurant to make up for the long wait. However our server seemed to have no clue we were celebrating a special occasion — nothing was ever mentioned or acknowledged, and he seemed far more interested in waiting on the large party seated near us. Food was good as always, but it was a pretty disappointing experience for a special occasion.

We took a customer of ours to this restaurant for a business dinner while in town. 4 of the 5 people said "this is the best meal I have ever had!", the other one had fish and chips. The 4 had bone-in filets which were "melt in your mouth". I would highly recommend coming to Joe's Seafood and Prime Steaks for any special occasion or business outing. Well worth the money.

料理は美味しいし、親切なおもてなし最高なレストランでした。シーフードは新しくジューシーなお味、お肉も上質で、野菜たちも新鮮甘くて沢山食べれました。デザートもボリュームありすぎでしたが、甘すぎず不思議に完食できたです。1人1人 テーブルでレモンを絞り手を洗ってくれます。沢山のテーブルがあって、皆さんガヤガヤやかましいですが、幸せなディナーでした。
また、是非行きたいです。

The stone crabs & the crab soup were outstanding 😋, the halibut was good 🙂,the dessert was tasteless and too fat 🙁, the waiter was very friendly, helpful and competent 🤵🏻👍🏻,his assistant cleared the table too quick 💁🏻‍♂️🙁He collected the spoons, before we were served the soup and took away the bread and the small bread plates before we were done with it. We liked the atmosphere, the stone crabs and would definitely return for that, but we would skip dessert and hang on to spoons, bread & plates 😉.

Chicago's Joe's Seafood, Steak and Stone Crab is a classic, one that we dine at every time we are in town. It is that good. Great professional service, great kitchen staff executing a nice menu, wonderful wine list, and uniquely Chicago ambience. Highly recommended.

This was by far the best steakhouse I have ever been in. It appears on almost every 10 best steakhouses in Chicago and it was totally worth the price. Justin our waiter was the best.

The food is always great. Our waitress was over the top friendly and knowledgeable. When we walked in, the bar was so alive. We just felt like this is the place you want to be. We thought maybe we should have a drink first and then go to dining room. Very good choice for dinner!

The food was so good. I had Dover Sole and my husband had crab legs. It was probably the best fish that I have ever had. Crab legs were also very good. Great service. Loved the atmosphere. Someone recommended that we try the coconut cream pie for dessert and it was wonderful. Just a really pleasant dining experience from start to finish. I can't wait to go back to this place!

Joe's seafood is great for any reason or occasion, so just because will do. It was my first time, I was visiting from out of town to celebrate my birthday. I came for lunch, the crab cake made me so so happy, amazing delicious stone crab cake, the best I've ever had, though all of the food was delicious from the corn to the king crab legs down to the delicious desert of key lime and Havana dream pie. what a great meal

Highly recommended as an alternative to just a steak heavy restaurant, although they have great steaks. I had a filet of Dover Sole that was cooked and filleted tableside. It was served with brown butter. Truly amazing.

Awesome seafood and steak...and appetizer (oysters Rockefeller), salad (heirloom tomatoes with fresh buffalo mozzarella) dessert and drinks (cold cold martinis with blue cheese olives to start, and an Irish coffee which could only be likended to those at ‘Buena Vista’ in San Francisco at the finish), Bar none one of the best meals we’re ever had in Chicago (and we are 50 something natives). Outstanding (authentic, smart, and genuinely nice) service. Fine (grownup) dining with class (minus the pretention). Rib in ribeye, Stone crab claws, Alaskan king crab (each piece so fresh and delicious I cannot actually remember the last time that happen), but the Dover sole with brown butter...to die for...and if not perfect, then the closest things towards a perfect entree. Jennifer our server, and her side helper Elias, were on point in anticipation of EVERY need. Man, what a great dining experience. Thank you Mr. Melman. We will be back.
