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.

My strawberry waffles was light and fluffy, but not very flavorful. Would definitely recommend adding a strawberry jam or something so the dish isn’t just dry waffles with chunks of unripe strawberries. My companions chicken and waffles looked far more composed as a dish, while mine felt like an afterthought thrown on the menu but not fully thought out. Big fan of their happy hour, but not so much their brunch offerings.

Joe’s was amazing. The Dover sole filleted table side was phenomenal. We will definitely be going back the next time we’re in DC

I wanted to try this restaurant as I heard good things about it. We went there for lunch and my wife tried the Manhattan Clam Chowder. She said it was very good. It was tomato based and there was lots of clams. I ordered the New York Strip and it was a very good steak. I normally prefer the rib eye but for lunch it was not on the menu. However the New York Strip was properly seasoned. I know that steak restaurants tend to undercook the meat and so I ordered it medium well and sure enough I got medium. For such a classy place, I felt the price of the steak was lower than for most places of this class. We also got the stone crab claws and it was so good, I had to order 2 more as you can get them by the piece. Service was attentive as you would expect for this kind of restaurant and the decor was very welcoming and classy. Would definitely recommend.

Stone crabs are the real draw here. They are delicious and worth the price. Other fish dishes are pretty good too. My dry aged bone-in rib-eye, though, was tough and had way too much gristle and fat to justify the $75.00 price. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff were aware of the birthday and greeted our guest at every step along the way. A nice touch.

The stone crab and Madagascal shrimp were awesome appetizers. We also enjoyed the dry-aged fillet steak and the king crab legs. Our waiter gave us a very informative instructions on foods and wine recommendations.

Everything was good except for the bone in ribeye 40day aged. The steak was a little tuff and had big line of silver membrane running through the center of the steak. Also the mashed potatoes weren’t very creamy. Kind of dry. Stone claws were the best!!

My visit was not so great this time around. I travel from another state to eat at Joe’s. My steak wasn’t to my preference and the blood from my steak got on the other food on my plate. I was very disappointed in the service for the amount of money I paid for the meal. The waiter got a few orders wrong. Just wasn’t a good visit.

Nice setting. Good service. Food was average. I had the broiled seafood platter. Shrimp was tough and definitely not fresh. Scallops were small but taste was fine. Small split lobster tails were good.
Food was better at the Chicago location

Great room, good food, stone crabs ok but not as fresh as Joe's in Miami Beach. 5 Large Stone Crabs for $80? Wow. Still, I'll be back

We chose Joe’s because of the reviews. My daughter loves rack of lamb and was excited to find a restaurant with it on the menu. Our soup was very good and so were the desserts. The entrees were hit and miss. My son’s filet was excellent. Mine was chewy and burned on the outside. My daughter’s lamb was burned on the outside and a mix of quality with 2:of the 6 being perfect and the other 4 were ok. I have had similar much better meals for better prices.

My wife and I had reservations for 8pm . We were seated at 8:30. The staff was very apologetic as they were very busy. From that point everything went upwards as we were treated like royalty. The food was very good with ample portions I would definitely go there again

I was very disappointed with the very expensive “jumbo” crab claws. While the claws were quite large, they were partially frozen and lacked flavor.
