Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab
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.
The very very best!!!!!!! Came for out anniversary
Amazing food, excellent service, food: SUBLIME
Superb wait staff
Very friendly and accommodating
Busboy abrupt and klutzy but obviously new
Wife’s birthday and they treated her like a Queen
She is from Miami but said they had better done crab than she got in Florida as a child
Overall outstanding experience and food was superb
Ive been coming to Joes for a long time and last night was a shock to me. Im extremely disappointed in the amount of food i was given for the price i paid. I was charged $70 for two crab legs cut into pieces. I paid $153 for two meals and left still hungry and unsatisfied. Im sad to say Joes as lost a long time customer in me.
We had such a wonderful time at Joe’s. The food and service was excellent and we can’t wait to go back!!
Every staff person we encountered were outstanding in personality and knowledge. I can't thank you enough for an amazing experience, as I was there with my Boss and and they were impressed with my choice : )
We had the perfect business dinner. European guest approved of the Lobster and King Crab! I loved the Crab Bisque.
Very extensive menu and excellent culinary cooking.
The Chop Salad was hearty and flavorful. The Bisque was excellent.
Great experience as always. Steve our server was great
Excellent food, great experience.
So glad our waiter recommended that we at least try the Stone Crab. It was so fresh and so delicious!! All the seafood we had was very fresh and so tasty!!
We were there to celebrate my daughters birthday and it was amazing. The service was stellar, fist class and dinner was delicious. I have no complaints.
Consistently awesome which cannot be said for very many places. I used to like their wine list somewhat more a few years ago but there are still lots of fine choices.
Steak was a bit over cooked. Usually the food is excellent, perhaps just an off day for the cook.
Excellent service. Old school steakhouse with great food. It was our first time at this location and it did not disappoint.
This is a limited review because I had eaten a late breakfast so I wasn't particularly hungry but I just had to sample Joe's fish tacos before catching a flight home. In particular, I wanted to compare Joe's Tacos to those I have eaten in San Diego and La Jolla.
Joe's Mahi-Mahi tacos were as good as those I had in California. But they were small (three) and expensive ($17.95). I also had a really good glass of French white wine (a lessor-growth Chablis) for $15 per glass. I sampled the French Sancerre also, which was very good, but did mot complement the tacos as well as the Chablis did.
Bottom line is that I look forward to a full dinner at Joe's the next time I visit Chicago (which will not be in the winter!).
Food was good and priced Appropriately. Key Lime pie was excellent. Seating was very tight and felt like you were in your neighbors conversation. Very Loud.... great for night out with friends. Not so much a place for a romantic meal with you love.
Always great service and food never a fails !!!
Always a great place to bring out-of-towners. The food was great and the wine list always has the right selection to pair with your food choice.
Very good, as always. Very expensive, as always. We’ll go back, as always.
Chris (waiter), Matt (Mgr) were exceptional, very attentive.
Our favorite restaurant in Chicago...for probably 15 years has been Joes - so I am not happy to write this review. And...I want to be clear that there was much about this visit that was excellent. First the good. We were late yet they accommodated us quickly. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The valets, host and coat room people did their jobs. It is possible that, because our visit was on a weekend, the restaurant acts differently. But I would never again go back on a Friday. Maybe I will stick to lunches.
First, the glasses on the table were filthy. We brought along a $600 bottle of wine. They replaced the glasses when we requested a change...but with more of the cheap glasses. The sommelier came over because we offered a taste of the wine. We never saw him again, even after ordering a $175 half-bottle. This should have merited a visit. They took our bottle off the table and then forgot which table it belonged to. So I had to go to the wine station, after waiting for some time with an empty glass, to find out what had happened. Our server was so busy that we rarely saw our server. We were trying to time our wine and food courses, and ultimately managed to do so, but not without a lot of effort tracking down the staff.
I tipped anyway...and will be back. I am giving them a pass for one bad dinner after many years of great dinners. As I noted, we probably will not be back on weekends. It is just too busy. I hope the next visit will not turn us off forever.
Probably the best steak house in Chicago. Great service and atmosphere.
Best bread basket, key lime aioli to die for and mint ice cream a must.
Everything was great!!! Service, food, atmosphere, will definitely be back and highly recommended!!!
Good service and good food. We got a great experience in the restaurant.
Best service in the city!!
Awesome as always. Our server was great.
Excellent food and service! Will definitely go back.
Food was great as usual but got sick after eating the coconut pie
Service and food were both good, however food could have been hotter.
Had early reservation and it was perfect. Stone crab, lobster and filet were unreal! Great drinks and wine as well. See you next time!
Went to celebrate birth of first grandchild. Really good! Guys had steaks, my sister had salmon, and I had the branzino. Everyone really liked their food, but I found the branzino to be pretty boring. I wouldn’t order that again. Our server was fantastic. Super knowledgeable and helpful. Wine list great!
Service and food always fantastic! The seafood was excellent as well as wait staff, always a treat to dine at Joe's!
Great food, service & drinks
Fantastic meal and our favorite Chicago restaurant!
Wonderful chopper seafood salad. Service was great.
The steaks are among the best in Chicago - and that says a lot! A medium cooked filet and a side of onion strings would would be my choice for a last meal - super delicious! The crab cakes are very crabby and a great choice for an appetizer or entree. Whether it’s seafood or steak, Joe’s is our favorite Chicago restaurant!
