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.

Fortunately I’ve written enough reviews to support the not so good ones too...and this is one of them. Arrived 10 minutes early with 2 out of three of us there but would not be allowed to sit until the third person came. We had to stand in front of the door since the front area was full and no seat available. Others had complained about themselves blocking the door too. 15 minutes later we requested to be seated so we could order wine while our third was still not there. Host was not willing to seat us and gave some story about “I will have to ask the matrie’d if it’s ok” and he never did. I was done with that idea. We had a reservation and wanted to sit but he wasn’t finding it convenient for himself “because we like to have our parties full before seating”. I told him that wouldn’t be convenient and we had a reservation and wanted to start our dining experience. He didn’t care and we weren’t seated until our third arrived a few minutes later. That said, I did notice another sat without their 3rd, I believe. Oysters were not fresh. Wine selection great, tartare very good, both tuna and steak.
Overall, just too snooty and full of themselves, not friendly, not accommodating, and I do not recommend it. Our bill for three was a little over $300. We were not the customer. Felt like the were.

Consistently one of Chicago’s best restaurants. Can’t go wrong with either steak or seafood. Joe’s is a class act.

Joe’s is just one of those places to that you just know you are going to have a great meal with great service. You can’t go wrong here it is consistently busy and consistently good. Don’t think about it just go. Only thing I would say is that it was difficult to stand at the bar and have a cocktail because it was too packed. People can eat up at the bar or in the surrounding tables in the bar/waiting area.

I like this restaurant but I will never go back. I don’t know what the valet was doing in my glove box, but they broke it. When I got in my car the glove box was open and the back part of my glove box was ripped off. The backing of the glove box won’t come off without some kind of force and I still can’t get it back on. So what was he doing???

Everytime we go to Chicago "Joes" is at the top of our list. If time allows we go twice !
the best Clam Chowder and Stone Crabs ever !! It is always the highlight of any of our trips.
We even have gone to Miami and Las Vegas, but Chicago states out the "best " Thanks Bon Appetti

I have eaten at both locations; Miami and Chicago.
I feel the Miami location has BETTER FOOD with
GOOD Presentation; Better Service ; and what is
most important to me when I am eating out
FOOD TEMPERATURE. At this location in Chicago
with the numerous times I have eaten here I have
to request eat time whether it is potatoes; bisque
or meat please reheat this dish.

Thank you

This was only our second time there within the last 3 years but food was excellent, from appetizers to entrees. We were celebrating my husband’s Birthday our server brought a chocolate cake with Steve’s name and he was 55. We informed our server nd he retrieved the cake. Brought a pice of chocolate pie to celebrate. I did indicate chocolate cake in my notes but figured we get a a slice of cake - not a whole cake. It was entertaining and we got a laugh out of it. Hope Steve got his cake! I also meant to sign up for rewards but left the restaurant without receipt. I will call the restaurant to find out

We were visiting from NYC and were making a direct comparison with our local favorites, such as Peter Luger. The large stone crab claws with mustard sauce were incredible but the 60 day dry aged, bone-in steak was surprisingly lacking in flavor. We enjoyed the hash brown and brussel sprouts sides. Definitely no room for dessert.

Excellent food and pretty good service. My only issue may relate to the very tight nature of the seating. No question that every last inch of the main dining room is maximized. Makes it loud and tough to get comfortable.

The stone crab claws were amazing and the “bone in halibut” outstanding. Our server Charles was simply the best. The bar was a bit backed up so our second round of drinks were on the House as was the most delicious slice of key lime pie for dessert. What a great night!

Although we had reservations we still experienced a short wait..about 10 minutes.
Other than that the food was great. Excellent fish and steak options. Good ambience.
Server Martha was fantastic. Spot on with recommendations.
The dinner was not rushed. Overall about 3 hours.
Coffee and dessert selections were fantastic, not overpriced for the size and quality.

Highly recommend this restaurant.

I rarely gush about LEYE restaurants; past experiences have been mediocre at best. My dinner at Joe's changed all that. This is the gold standard that epitomizes old-school dining; impeccable service, attention to details, and delicious food. We were a tad early, and our longer-than-usual-wait was rewarded with a comfortably posh booth. A beautifully staged basket of seasoned lavosh, roll, and artisanal bread was immediately presented. We had studied the menu and made our choices, but switched teams mid-game when our server expounded on items not previously in the running. This turned out to be a wise decision. My partner chose a grilled seafood plate consisting of lobster tails, scallops, and shrimp. It was fresh, hot, and perfectly prepared in a light butter and herb sauce. I went headfirst into a 16 oz rib-eye that practically fell apart when the knife touched the meat. It's no exaggeration to say this was one of the best steaks I've been served-grilled medium, with a touch of salt and pepper; nothing else. Sides are à la carte; we shared a heavenly creamed spinach and baked sweet potato; good enough on its own, but better with the maple walnut butter accompaniment. You will find more expensive surf and turf offerings in Chicago's myriad of like-joints, but you won't do better than Joe's.
