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.

We went for a Mother’s Day dinner and it went way better than anticipated! The food was very much up to par and they environment was very welcoming. I would definitely recommend Joe’s Seafood to anyone looking for a great seafood experience!

I recommend eating the stone crabs with cocktail sauce, otherwise it has no taste

I absolutely Loved this place! I’ve never experienced top notch fine dining like this before. Not only our waiter catered to us but any staff that was around was on point. It was real upscale experience all the way around.

Joe's is an all-time favorite for me and my family. This visit failed to live up to our expectations. Upon arrival, the maître d' could not find our reservation and expressed frustration. Once the reservation was found, no apology was offered. When we go to Joe's, we tend to indulge and ordered Madagascar shrimp, the largest Stone Crab claws, salads, sides, and this time scallops and Chilean Sea Bass for the entrees. The scallops came out as expected and were fine. The Chilean Sea Bass was cold and undercooked. On this occasion, the waiter did not come by to check on us and our entrees. A little disappointing, but we will be back, eventually, to give them another try.

Appetizer and Entree was incredible and cocktails was just right. Shrimp Cocktail, Oysters Rockefeller, Oysters on the Half Shell, Fried Oysters was very delighting. The Colossal Lump Crab Cake was great and didn’t not have a lot of filling. Grilled Mahi Tacos would have been great if sauce was provided but was still tasteful. Sautéed Spinach was salty. Fried Asparagus different but was great. Sautéed BROCCOLINI would not order again.

I've been here several times and I have yet to be disappointed with the service or food! I took my mother for the first time and she absolutely loved it and looking forward to returning and bringing her sweetie:-)

Great food, excellent service! Pricey, yes, but well worth it!

La comida es deliciosa, solo que, nose si fue una cuestión de contingencia covid, pero apenas terminamos la comida, llevaron la cuenta, mmmm o cerraban temprano. La cuestión es que nos sentimos corridos! Por lo demás maravilloso!!!

Amazing stone crab claws and good seafood in general. Very good wine selection, make sure to ask your waiter which ones are on sale from Monday to Wednesday. Fancy ambience.

A Must Stake & Seafood Restaurant!!

We dine throughout the country and Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab in D.C. is one of the very best dining experiences ever! Pronominal menu. Our server, Patrick, was terrific, providing excellent attention and dining suggestions!

We will be making a return visit soon!

Was an off night for a great restaurant. It happens. My halibut was way over cooked to the point of being really dry. All food was lukewarm. Been there a zillion times and this was a first. It’s ok - I’ll continue to go back.

The food was on the expensive side for the portion size, but delicious! Love the fries and sweet potato fries. The seafood was very fresh. We also went for our anniversary and they gave us a free dessert
