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.

The food is very good. The service was good, but I wouldn't say it was fantastic. I would recommend it for the food alone.

Loved this place. My skirt steak was done perfect and omg the French fries were amazing. We have been coming to DC a lot and this trip revealed two of my new favorite restaurants. This one and Claudia’s ( paella was delicious, they say it’s for two but three could definitely eat with is).

Everything was great overall, transition from appetizers to main course was a little too quick (main course arrived and appetizers plates had not been removed yet).

Service is lazy and arrogant. My wife was 5 minutes early and told to wait in a cramped lobby, not only not offered a seat at the bar, was actually told she could not. When the rest of the party arrived one was outside parking his car. We were all told we must wait until everyone was present. Later at the table a waiter cleared away plates and brought desert menus while one person was still eating. Food was good, everyone enjoyed the meal, but for the price it ought to be good. Ambience and decor is great. On service, we would have been treated better in Nando’s. Overall, I think we would have had just as good a time at Capital Grille. I would not go again.

The Steaks were, as always, marvelous, but the beloved king crabs were this time, although only partly, not at its best. But service, like always, was outstanding. See you next Time

Stone crab was exceptional and we highly recommend it, don't leave without trying it! My wife and I sat at the bar and enjoyed some really good cocktails, bloody mary's and the white sangria were delish. Dana and Lady took really good care of us and cant wait to stop by during our next DC visit, really great service from them two.

Obviously a popular spot to gather at 6 pm during the week; bar area packed but not too difficult to order a pre-dinner drink. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Service was superb, as was the food. A bit pricey, but overall we’d go back again.

Salmon was grilled where steaks were grilled so it had a meat flavor. It was well-done and salmon should be moist.

The $85 crab was not worth the $ - I've had better at Red Lobster.

The sole was outstanding however.

The place was very busy (no empty table) so maybe we just had a bad one-time experience.

We made a reservation and were seated right away. Food was delicious and well worth the price. Fresh stone crab, beef tartar was excellent. Crab cakes were basically all meat. I had noted on open table it was my birthday and they brought a complimentary brownie and ice cream with a candle. Service was excellent.

The Only reason, I gave 4 stars to my dish is because I ordered a salmon, and it was a little too dry.

Fantastic! The Stone Crab claws, fish, shrimp and steak were great. But what sets Joe’s apart from others is that the combo of service, side dishes, and desserts are the best I have had in a long, long time. A great family dinner.
