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 our 24 oz. Bone-In Rib Eye. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie. Enjoy a generous cocktail in the bustling lounge or the tuxedo-clad service of the clubby dining room.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.8

Joe's is consistently one of the best steakhouses in town, and you shouldn't even order steak. Stone crabs are where it's at.

Ratings 8.5-9.0:Now we’re in the range of absolutely excellent restaurants that you might go to more than once a year/lifetime. These restaurants tend to define a city, and make up the places that you absolutely cannot miss if you want to have any credibility as a restaurant-informed person in a major metropolis.

There were 4 of us for dinner and we all ordered different meals. I had the Chilean seabass, my wife the black seabass, a friend crab cakes and another the special fried chicken. Both seabass were excellent and I would order either again. My friend ordered the chicken on a recommendation and he wished he ordered the seafood. Great waiter and very good pairing of the wines with the dinner.

Excellent cuts of meat and excellent service. The seafood is excellent as well. There are no values on the menu which becomes a bit disappointing after multiple times dining here. Someone needs to introduce them to the term “Nightly Specials”!

Food on our recent visit was top notch, as always. The fried asparagus never disappoints. The pumpkin chiffon pie is a nice addition for the fall. Outstanding service from waiter Kevin Barton and maître d' Jim.

Beautiful restaurant with an outstanding staff. The service was great. The food menu has a wide variety of things to choose from which was nice. However, the one thing keeping me from rating this place highly is the food itself was underwhelming.

My wife ordered the seafood platter which had scallops, shrimp, and lobster tails. All were overcooked and lacked seasoning. I ordered the filet mignon and lobster tail. I requested medium rare for the steak but came out medium well. The lobster tail was also overcooked. We also ordered a side of steamed asparagus which was cooked nicely but also lacked seasoning.

We also had the stone crab claws which were delicious. They are served chilled (so no way of being overcooked) and the shells are pre-cracked making it easier to extract the meat. This was easily our most enjoyable dish.

They just need to get the basics down better and this place is easily a 4-5 star.

Although it was packed crowded(we couldnt even get to bar for a drink), we were seated quickly. Dining room is very crowded.
Waitress was awesome, she was attentive yet not overbearing. Sometimes she poured wine and we barely noticed she was there. She also engaged us in conversation when we chose to. Food is always great here. For some reason, it may have been slightly underseasoned this time, yet not a big deal since they leave seasoning on table. Reason for 4 stars on food was starter was just ok(calamari), and sides were average.
It is very expensive, maybe its just the darn Chicago tax.

For an expensive steak house/ seafood restaurant the food was okay; not great. The venue is fairly basic. Service is good except for the wait to get seated. The restaurant is very crowded which I think helps and hurts them. They do not have to be "exceptional" since they are busy. However at the same time they are a high end restaurant that is decent however not exceptional.

Great food and service!
Been coming to Joe’s a couple of times for lunch. They offer a lunch menu and the regular menu, lots of choices.
This time I ordered the fried chicken. Had heard from food critic Steve Dolinsky from Hungry Hound the fried chicken is one of the best! And YES was the BEST chicken I have tasted!

Wow! The best food I have had in a long time ! Everything was so delicious I can’t even explain. So so flavorful - the Dover sole is to die for - macncheese so rich with cheeses. I don’t even like Brussels sprouts but I liked these! And to top it our key lime pie was exquisite. Our waiter Micheal was so friendly and attentive! We don’t usually go to 5 star restaurants so we were shooting in the dark - but we def Reached the stars all 5 stars with this one!

I was disappointed. We drove all the way from St Louis to dine for our 13th wedding anniversary. THey were running behind and we ended up sitting in the bar very crowded and loud with poor rushed service.

I am not sure I will ever return to this location. I have dined several times in Vegas and Miami

Birthday dinner for my daughter. It was a Sunday night, and very busy. We were off to the side by a window, so we could talk. It gets pretty congested out in the middle of the floor. Great seafood and steaks. A few decent beers, but a lot of wines to choose from. I've been here before and I'll do it again.

If you are a lover of Seafood you shouldn't miss this restaurant - One of the best in Chicago area. Food was fantastic; recommendations from our waiter were very decent and considerate; as it was my husband's birthday, the dessert they offered on the house was also a perfect fit. Management of seats was great; the whole area was neither too packed nor too loud. Definitely would recommend to anyone.
