What Insiders Are Saying
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.
As always, this location never disappoints. We have visited the DC, Vegas and Chicago locations and Chicago is our favorite, Ryan provided excellent service. We visited for an early dinner and enjoyed The Whale for two, some stone crab and the Crab Bisque. All delicious!!! And the Bloody Mary’s were wonderful! We visit every time when in Chicago. Highly recommend!!!
We've dined at Joe's more than 30 times over the years. As always, we had a wonderful meal. However, our server (Cierra, I believe) was the worst we have experienced. She mishandled the way she served wine--twice. She never asked how our food was or checked as to whether it was prepared the way we wanted. She was not very attentive--we didn't see her for long stretches. She just didn't provide the level of service we are accustomed to when we visit Joe's.
Reservations are needed on the weekends. The place was packed, even at 5:30!
Great spot for amazing service. Highly recommend the banana cream pie!
Always love this place! When doing a trade show in Chicago once a year - we book our reservation two months in advance to be sure to get a table. It's an annual tradition that my employees love!
Joe’s never fails to please with great food and efficient service. Only fault is that service is so efficient that you can sometimes feel rushed. So many people waiting for a table that this is probably a good thing. In any regard, Joe’s is fabulous.
As always, a quiet, civilized retreat from the bustling city streets. Polished and competent with a clubby feel. Old wood, tile, tuxedoed waiters. Classic, traditional menu and preparation. Pristine fresh oysters, stone crab, silverware, linens, crystal. Quality ingredients only, and unbeatable for pure comfort.
awesome! If I come back to Chicago I will surely visit.
Seated promptly. Awesome oysters, chopped salad, stone crab claws! Bone in filet is the best steak in town!
Every meal I've had at Joe's has been good, and we frequently celebrate special occasions there, but the service on our past visit was really lacking. When the restaurant called to confirm our reservation they made sure to note we would be celebrating my husband's birthday, which I confirmed. When we checked in at the restaurant, the host also confirmed we were celebrating a special occasion. But we then proceeded to waited at least 30 minutes for our table (seated after 8:30 for an 8pm reservation). When we were seated, the same host who'd greeted us originally told us dessert was on the restaurant to make up for the long wait. However our server seemed to have no clue we were celebrating a special occasion — nothing was ever mentioned or acknowledged, and he seemed far more interested in waiting on the large party seated near us. Food was good as always, but it was a pretty disappointing experience for a special occasion.
We took a customer of ours to this restaurant for a business dinner while in town. 4 of the 5 people said "this is the best meal I have ever had!", the other one had fish and chips. The 4 had bone-in filets which were "melt in your mouth". I would highly recommend coming to Joe's Seafood and Prime Steaks for any special occasion or business outing. Well worth the money.
Wonderful experience at Joe’s. Service was impeccable from bar staff, host, and all wait service. The food was just as good. Would go back in a heartbeat
Fantastic food. Fantastic service. Not inexpensive but you definitely get what you pay for. Highly recommended.
First time there and not disappointed in anything. Waiter was 5* as was food. Glad I made my res 3 weeks in advance.
Excellent seafood,wine selections, service, and knowledgeable wait staff.
Had the chopped seafood salad. Would definitely have again. Also had the roast corn side dish. Would have again
Food always delivers. Excellent fish, steak and fried chicken. Great potatoes. Creamed spinach can be salty. Desserts are wonderful. Highly recommend
The stone crabs & the crab soup were outstanding 😋, the halibut was good 🙂,the dessert was tasteless and too fat 🙁, the waiter was very friendly, helpful and competent 🤵🏻👍🏻,his assistant cleared the table too quick 💁🏻♂️🙁He collected the spoons, before we were served the soup and took away the bread and the small bread plates before we were done with it. We liked the atmosphere, the stone crabs and would definitely return for that, but we would skip dessert and hang on to spoons, bread & plates 😉.
First time at this restaurant, enjoyed the food a d can tell the difference in their seafood compared to Minnesota. I would like to give props to our waitress Colleen, she was on top of everything, we didn't have to ask for anything. Thanks for making this night special!
Outstanding service, food was delicious and cooked perfectly.
Always wonderful!! Joe's is my favorite restaurant period!! It is a dining experience.
Chicago's Joe's Seafood, Steak and Stone Crab is a classic, one that we dine at every time we are in town. It is that good. Great professional service, great kitchen staff executing a nice menu, wonderful wine list, and uniquely Chicago ambience. Highly recommended.
Stone crab was delicious! My steak was perfect! My husband’s steak was a little over cooked...
Joe's never fails to create a memorable dining experience. Hands-down my favorite steak house in Chicago!
Fantastic food, service and overall experience! They were wonderful with our children!
Very noisy, highly expensive vs the food quality and amount.
Denise was amazing!
This was by far the best steakhouse I have ever been in. It appears on almost every 10 best steakhouses in Chicago and it was totally worth the price. Justin our waiter was the best.
Really enjoyed the food and evening. Service and food were great. Will be back again.
The food is always great. Our waitress was over the top friendly and knowledgeable. When we walked in, the bar was so alive. We just felt like this is the place you want to be. We thought maybe we should have a drink first and then go to dining room. Very good choice for dinner!
Amazing stone crab claws, seafood, and steak! The key lime pie is incredible. Service was perfect!
Expect to pay high prices for this level of food and service. Highly recommended.
Tables are tight. Noise is loud. I need to reserve a table towards the back where it is less busy!
My only problem was, that even though we´ve made a reservation, we still had to wait around 15 minutes for our table.
The food was so good. I had Dover Sole and my husband had crab legs. It was probably the best fish that I have ever had. Crab legs were also very good. Great service. Loved the atmosphere. Someone recommended that we try the coconut cream pie for dessert and it was wonderful. Just a really pleasant dining experience from start to finish. I can't wait to go back to this place!
When someone finally came to seat me(the bar was not busy but it still took a few minutes)the food was delicious and the service was wonderful.
Joe's seafood is great for any reason or occasion, so just because will do. It was my first time, I was visiting from out of town to celebrate my birthday. I came for lunch, the crab cake made me so so happy, amazing delicious stone crab cake, the best I've ever had, though all of the food was delicious from the corn to the king crab legs down to the delicious desert of key lime and Havana dream pie. what a great meal
Great Food and Great Service! Joe’s is a must when in Chicago!
Salmon was not fantastic, however others in party ate Steak and it was great. Desserts were amazing!
Always great. Got the Dover Sole. Wonderful. Also Madagascar Shrimp appetizer. Awesome. Gold Brick sundae for dessert. Can't go wrong at Joe's.
