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.
Denise was absolutely fabulous. Thank you for making Father’s Day wonderful.
We came here for an anniversary dinner at my recommendation. I can honestly say I was humiliated by the time we left. The stone crab was a frozen mess. We had what was hopefully an armpit hair come out with our food but i fear something worse. And every single diner except for us was wearing a t shirt. Why did I dress up to go to this tourist trap. Seriously, save your $150 per person. Go anywhere but this place. The five star reviews are from tourists, not true stone crab fans. They would never serve that mess in Miami. I am honestly afraid to look my wife in the eye today. She knows her husband got hoodwinked.
Great food and service. We were a large group and everyone was very satisfied.
Great Food and Service! Crab legs are awesome and service is attentive and friendly. Had a nice booth against the wall but still the noise level was quite high otherwise a lovely meal but likely will stay away from busier times in the future due to noise level
loved everything about it. Oysters Rockefeller yum yum.
The food was outstanding. The filet was delicious, easily one of the best we've had anywhere. The crab claws were fantastic! Service was impeccable even though they were packed. The volume was very loud, but its a packed place for a darn good reason! I would choose this place over & over again. They even threw in a special treat for our date night being our first visit there, which was a very appreciated and surprising touch for such a booming busy place.
We are repeat visitors to Joe's - a regular stop when we are in Chicago. The food is excellent and consistent, with real quality service (thanks, Michelle). While it is expensive, it is also worth it and we have never had a meal that was less than excellent. Favorites include the ribeye steak (which my wife and I split) and the apple pie (really, really excellent pie...leave room for it!). It seemed louder this year than it had previously, which we view as a negative, but we were able to converse in our booth with somewhat raised voices--and that wouldn't keep us away.
Seafood tower was amazing. The steak was cooked to a perfect temperature!
great food, excellent service, i was the most impressed by Joe's I've ever been , and I'm always impressed. What a grand impressive meal. We all had oysters, seafood and a bunch of sides and shared a few desserts among a group of 6.
As usual, the overall experience was terrific. Special occasion for my wife and she was treated very nicely. We have dined at Joe's numerous times and have never been disappointed.
Joe's is my favorite restaurant in the city. I love everything and everyone there. Best cucumber martini in Chicago. Wonderful servers (Dan and Tim are especially our favs).
We enjoyed a graduation celebration lunch for our granddaughter at Joe’s and as she said “everything was perfect “.
When on vacation, my wife and I have gone to Joe's in D.C., Vegas and now Chicago. We love seafood and this is as good as it gets. The food is consistently outstanding, as is the service.
Joe’s knows how to do it right! Excellent!
Always best of the best. Highly recommended.
Terrific service (yeah, Colleen) and excellent food. Will definitely visit again on our next visit to Chicago.
Excellent dining experience! The food was out of this world Devine! What a very special place this is! You get the real Chicago vibe at Joes! The staff is so well trained at what they're doing and am to give you the very best dining experience!
Our server was great, the food was good, but this place is way overpriced. The SELECT stone claws were $60 and very small. Not worth $10 a claw. Very pricey!
We ate at Joe’s to celebrate my birthday while in Chicago. We were nothing short of impressed. Our party of five ordered the crab cakes, petit filets, and crab stuffed shrimp. The entrees were delicious, and the sides were as well. I’m typically not a macaroni and cheese fan, but the four cheese macaroni side was amazing. The creamed spinach and artichokes were also great complements to our meals. Service was fantastic and the ambiance was just what we were looking for. Circle tables allowed for easy conversation.
The hokey “price is right” table announcer made me want to leave before we were even sat...so odd and made the restaurant seem low budget. Our server was wonderful as was the food. Our busman was quite aggressive and removed plates and food before we were ready. Overall, food was solid, but the atmosphere/ambiance didn’t live up to my expectations .
Great food, service, and environment
Always consistent and just a special place
My family’s go-to place for special occasions (or any time we want to treat ourselves). Consistently outstanding food and service.
Service was very good. Crabs were great. Sides were great. My bone in rib eye was tough. Only ate half.
Friend and I share the same birthday so we wanted to do a nice dinner out. We were overall very happy with the experience. Food was very good, service was excellent. Didn’t have room for dessert so they sent us home each with a slice of pie and candles.
We absolutely love Joe’s and our waiter this time, Charlie, knocked it out the park! We were seated in a booth, treated to top notch service and food. We started with calamari and the king crab legs then decided to go the ribeye steak route with mac&cheese and sautéed spinach . I had gin martinis while my guests had peach martinis ( I recommend!) . Dessert was a medley of key lime, banana pie, blueberry pie and peppermint ice cream with chocolate sauce . Yumm!! Joes never disappoints, it is always spot on . Til the next time !
Frozen crab was not good !
Our favorite in Chicago. Great service, friendly, and the food was AMAZING.
Chris our waiter was AMAZING! The restaurant and food are excellent but the service makes it even better. They provided 3 comp’d desserts just because we had to wait 15 minutes for our tables. Great recommendations!
It would be easy to dismiss Joes in Chicago as it not have all the local lore. What it does have is a an excellent wait staff , great bar atmosphere ask for “Sticks “” and wine list that’s pretty good and great meals never a disappointment
Great service and food. Be prepared to wait a bit even with a reservation. But completely worth the wait.
Incredible service and amazing food! Would highly recommend
Not a complaint. Jeff, the bartender did a fabulous job.
Awesome! Joshua was an axing waiter. The service is always fantastic and the food is always even better!
Joes never disappoints. The food and service were fantastic. I would have loved to of had a few more medium priced wine options. Overall, an excellent spot.
Great food, great service, everyone is very pollite and helpful. Loved the time, the crab, the apple pie dessert. If ever again at Chicago I will return !
We only come to Joe’s a couple days a year, and it’s always amazing! It has that Chicago feel to it.
Service was spectacular. Food is umfortunately average.
Overall not a bad experience.
Celebrating my birthday with friends. It was a wonderful meal. It made my day really special.
Always spectacular service.
Always amazing! Best place in Chicago! We will be back soon with others to share this great experience!
