Seafood
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.

Enjoyed my experience at Joe’s. The food was delicious and the customer service was superb! I was happy to have made the drive from Baltimore to DC and get excellent seafood. It’s often hard to find good seafood outside of Maryland. This was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday.

Joe's always exceeds our expectations. The food is fresh, wait staff are genuine, and atmosphere reflects the historical air of DC. Undoubtedly, one of the best restaurants in DC, where every single food item is worth the cost. You pay for excellent and sumptuous meals.

As someone who is accustomed to fine dining, I must say this particular Joes did not live up to its hype. I’ve visited a sister location in Vegas and it FAR out did this particular one. First of all, the wait staff is EXTREMELY slow, and I had to ask several times just to have my water replenished. The lobster tail was good, but my filet, and my wife’s were extremely dry and chewy. Ridiculous. Our waitress was extremely cold and short with us. She had way too many tables to try and provide outstanding service to each one. This is a huge mistake on the restaurant’s part. I will not visit this location again.

We had our company dinner at Joe's last week. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The restaurant is a renovated bank and has a very classy ambiance to it. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Dinner and dessert was enjoyed by all. We all left very full and very happy.

Joe's never disappoints. Took my son here to celebrate his 6th birthday and he was happy! He loves the stone crabs and the kids menu is solid. They even fixed him a shirley temple cocktail for his bday! Highly recommend.

In general, a nice place but very dark, even at noon. The stone crab dish is overpriced. We were not told the price when ordering as we assumed it was a starter item. Not a nice surprise when your starter item costs $79.95!

Joe's is one of the few restaurants in D.C. that seafood and steaks very well.
If you're a Stone Crab lover it's the only game in town as far as I know?
The service is always great and I try to get Brian Guise as my waiter every time I go.
He's great! If you like dessert try the Key Lime Pie.

It was our first time eating at Joe’s. We were very impressed. The ambiance was great, very upbeat, contemporary and elegant. A place where you can dress up or be very comfortable in casual attire. The food was excellent, everything was cooked to perfection. Great steak Oscar and great beef Wellington! The four cheese Mac n cheese was wonderful. We look forward to going back on our next trip to Washington DC.

No seats available for Happy Hour but I was able to book a reservation and was seated within seconds. The place was nice but a bit pricey. We only ordered 2 appetizers and a bottle of Shiraz and our bill was almost $200, but overall the food was good and the service was excellent.

Unfortunately a colleague couldn’t join me so I ate alone. No stranger to Joes Stone Crabs, i was disappointed that I couldn’t share the experience with my colleague. I didn’t really care about not having to talk and eat, polishing off the octopus, plate of Specials and the whole order of “hashed” Browns, not my first rodeo. Waiter Robert was excellent.
