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.

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.

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! 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

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.

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 .

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 !
