Excellent, old-fashioned steakhouse atmosphere. My bone-in ribeye was very tasty. My wife’s roasted chicken was excellent. The chocolate pie was super rich.

This was my second visit to Joe's and it didn't disappoint. Both the service and the food were incredible. We were a family of 5 including a 2 year old and all the servers were so good to my toddler. I had the filer oscar and the combination of steak and crab was wonderful

Everything was great until I was half way thru my seafood pasta and noticed the lobster was raw. They did offer to bring me a new one but at that point I was full from the other seafood in the pasta. They did take it off our bill but it did leave me unsatisfied that they would send out raw lobster. I unfortunately had a very large bite of the lobster before I discovered it.

I took my mom for Mother’s Day. The food was great. The only thing was that it took a little longer than we’d like for the food to come out. It was as expensive as I thought either.

This is one of my special occasion restaurants. First time I have been disappointed with the service.
It was busy 5:30 reservation and were seated right away. Waiter arrived shortly, and slow service started after drinks were brought. One person ordered a mojito which arrived without any mint and was not well made, drinks not water were left consistently empty for long periods. The lamb dish ordered medium came out rare and was returned- good on second pass, took awhile for waiter to ask if all was ok. Had to request more bread and never came back to ask if we wanted wine refreshed. Understand they got very busy with preMothers day celebrants and we were in no hurry, but other wait staff around us were better paced.
Food was as always very good, and liked by our guests

The stone crab was super expensive and honestly wasn’t very good, previously frozen and mushy. Waiter was inattentive. He forgot to bring one of my colleague’s food items and brought her side after we got the check. Fail.

Joe’s Seafood and Prime Steak has been very consistent in everything from valet parking, host, service, drinks and food. This is my fifth time to celebrate something at Joe’s and they have done a wonderful job each time and has been very consistent.

I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants the nice service and quality food.

Great waiter (Lady), excellent service and attitude of the Staff. The food was good, but not great. Crab claws seemed frozen. Steak was good. Expensive. Wine list was limited and way overpriced. $17 Chianti for $75. Seems a bit stiff. Upbeat environment. God for business dinners

We were disappointed to say the least. We’ve been going to joes for a while now and I’m not sure if we will ever come back. Our waiter was completely rude from the start. This was shocking because every time we’ve come to joes we have the best service ever! He was absolutely terrible at refilling all of our waters - we would have to ask him and even than he would forget. Which is unacceptable behavior to be working at Joes. My steak was cooked wrong as well - clearly he did not listen to me. He also forgot to give me the seasoning that goes with the filet and i asked him to bring me some. Again clearly did not listen to me and brought me out A1 sauce and i had to ask him again for the seasoning which all took so long my steak was cold now. We asked him 3 times for more bread as well and we never received any. It was our friends birthday so he brought out a dessert - set it on the table and didn’t say anything. He didn’t give us any silver ware to eat it! One of our friends had to grab a fork from another table so he could eat it. What was even more sad is most of the time he was just standing around, looking as if he was doing nothing. He was rude when ever we asked for something. When I asked for the steak seasoning he cut me off before I could finish and said not right now hold on. Then he came back after 7 minutes if standing around to ask what i needed and proceeded to bring me the wrong thing. It was our friends first time at Joe’s and my husband and i have always talked so highly of this place. It’s embarrassing that this was their first and most likely last experience. Joe’s should be ashamed and embarrassed of how we were treated and the staff that was serving us.

Dinner was great. Steak was very nicely cooked. Our server though was pretty loud and his overall personality made us stressed. He made sure to state that the menu is a la carte about eight times and he didn’t do a very good job at answering our questions. Not sure if it was because of the language barrier but we asked if the salmon was wild and he started telling us about how many ounces the fish was... food was excellent. Had the halibut, ny strip, and filet and lobster tail.

Our server, Paul, was outstanding. Just the right amount of attention, conversation and recommendations. The food was next level. Everything we ordered was delicious. Nice touch at the end of the meal. Paul brought out a complimentary brownie a la mode with a candle in it to celebrate my husband's birthday. Highly recommend!
