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.

    The waiter was unbelievably off-putting. He was arrogant to the point of contemptuous. He managed to offend all four people at the table. He repeatedly barged in on animated conversations, made clear we needed to eat on his schedule, not our own, and basically dismissed a couple of us for stupidity. My wife, the daughter of a Quaker minister, dubbed him an a-hole. we all agreed. This may not prevent me from returning in the future, but it absolutely guarantees that I will not make an effort to return in the future. This was unforgiveable.

    Not the best visit we've had. The service was not exceptional, but our server sensed that and did try to make the situation right. Will be back, as always, love the place, the food, the team, the professional service. Up front staff is best in town.

    This was my third time at Joe's and it's been outstanding all three times. I had the branzino and my friend had the crab cakes. Both were excellent. Great wine list and service. It's a little pricey but worth it!

    The food wasn’t what we expected for the prices we paid. Sides came from kitchen over cooked and cold. Fresh fish was good. Service was good and I would definitely recommend a reservation. Server station was directly next to table which was distracting.

    Food was okay, very salty. Oysters didn’t taste fresh! Drinks were overpriced - a sidecar came out to $27 which is outrageous. Altogether, I wouldn’t be back.

    Loyal customer and frequent diner. Food was great as always. However, today was the worst service we’ve ever had at Joe’s. Waitress was unprofessional, bordering on rude. Seemed put out when we asked questions. No real greeting or thank you / goodbye, just kind of threw the check at us toward the end. We would have ordered more food and likely dessert but she didn’t ask. No check back when entrees were delivered. Definitely nothing like we’ve ever experienced before. Was planning a Joe’s birthday dinner for my mothers 70th but after tonight, we are reconsidering.

    The best place for Stone crab claws in a classic steak house milieu if you don't choke on the prices. Waitress was a bit on the young side and kept taking things away before myself and my dining buddy were actually both done. Not good form!

    I have ordered takeout from here before and My friends love it here so was really looking forward to bringing my coworkers while in town for work, but I was underwhelmed. We ordered a bone in ribeye, stone crabs, fish and several sides. Only the fish was enjoyed. The steak looked amazing, but was cold and not salted enough. All of the sides were cold and the crab lacked flavor, not meaty. I would not rush to go back. Our waiter was amazing and the place has a really cool vibe but really disappointing meal.

    Nice restaurant, but horrible Hostesses at the door! We were there to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday, and as soon as we arrived the Hostesses told us they were running behind and that our table wasn't ready. She said we could wait at the bar and would call me (confirmed my phone number and everything) when our table was ready. An hour goes by while my friends and I are waiting at the bar with drinks ($100+ for 4 drinks) when I called the restaurant to check the status of our table. The Hostess has an immediate attitude on the phone and proceeded to tell me that we were late so they gave our table away??? Imagine how confused we were by her response, so I figured she had mistaken us for someone else. When I tried to explain to her that SHE'S the one who told us to wait at the bar, and said that SHE'D call when our table was ready, but never did, she continued to argue with me about how it was our "fault" that we did not get a table! This young girl was very rude & highly unprofessional who sounded like an immature rebellious teenager, so one of my friends went and got the Manager. All and all, the manager apologized to us profusely for that girl's bad behavior and gave us a table right away. I was surprised by that Hostesses attitude & lack of compassion, especially at a place that charges roughly $100 per entrée! You need a minimum of $300 to eat there for just 2 people! We expected the service to be Top Notch for the prices they charge.
