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 the 24 oz. Bone-In Rib Eye or Bone-in Filet Mignon. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie. Enjoy a cocktail in the bustling lounge or the tuxedo-clad service of the dining room.

Great but noisy. Nice and entertaining waiter. Good food. My tuna steak was wonderful. Think you should find a way to make the stone crabs more affordable.

Outstanding! Exemplary! Memorable!
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dining experience at Joe's the moment we walked through the door. We were greeted warmly by 2 hosts which was an indicator of the level of excellence we would experience throughout the evening. Victor, our wonderful server was the epitome of customer service! Victor is a wonderful ambassador for Joe's Seafood restaurant because he clearly communicated his love of the food served and his love of working for an exemplary company. Standing ovation and applause for each and everyone we met on Monday night! I had a great time celebrating my belated birthday with you. Jo Gusman Anthony

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Joe's in DC and had a wonderful experience. The host immediately found our Open Table, wished us a happy anniversary congratulated and got us seated promptly. Our server, Jenny, was very friendly and attentive. The stone crabs were terrific!

I thought the place was amazing and food was so delicious! However, too pricey on the fried oysters appetizer. Also, the server could have done a little better and tried more to communicate with us better instead of grabbing stuff without explaining. I mean, we are deaf, and the server could have written a note with an explanation. At least he wrote on paper to inform us about what kind of sides we could order. Overall, everything was good and I would go back there again.

We love Joe’s. It’s pricey - especially if ordering any of the special seafood ($16 for a Madagascar shrimp!) but it’s always good and service is terrific.

The crab was outstanding! The wait staff was very attentive, however, we felt rushed ordering, eating, clearing the table, paying - and we were definitely not taking an inordinate amount of time. It was very annoying.

Joe's is a throwback to what I imagine were the classic steakhouses of the 30's and 40's. Grand wood bar and wall accents, wait staff in tuxes and a detail to service that is rare these days. 16oz Ribeye was prepared to order (med rare). The steak tartare served with perfect runny egg yolk was spot on. Highly recommend for dinner or happy hour.

Service, ambiance very good, however disappointed in the food during this visit. Stone crab was smashed to bits and had to pick out tiny shells throughout meal. Steak was requested medium rare, but delivered very rare.

The food there is always amazing, as are the drinks. But what really sets it apart is how special everyone there makes you feel, from the hosts to the servers. They treat you so well you will want to come back for more.

It was almost so bougie that my boyfriend and I felt like we didn’t belong. However, the food was great. Was a tad bit noisey but we had a great time. First time eating there, but I’d definitely return and recommend this place to others.

We were in town for the weekend and decided to make reservations for a birthday dinner. I HIGHLY recommend this establishment. The food was impeccable and the service was amazing. My husband and I ordered the shrimp appetizer, the grilled seafood platter, a Madagascar shrimp, and followed with dessert of apple pie. The food was amazing and unlike anything we have ever had (we are major foodies as well). It was a very nice and memorable experience and the waitress was very helpful. I would 100% suggest to anyone!
