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.

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.

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 a reservation at 830, we got there a few minutes early to get a drink. Got sat at the best table in house, in the back corner booth that was so romantic for Valentines Day! Our server Charles was outstanding. So knowledgeable on food and just a great conversationalist. We had the stone crab claws, and Madagascar shrimp as apps and licked the plates clean. For dinner we shared the Filet Oscar and Dover sole, absolutely perfectly cooked and presentation was great. The side of Brussels sprouts was one of the best things I’ve eaten. To top it off we got 2 desserts and devoured them as much as we could. It was a great night and we couldn’t thank Charles enough. Highly recommend. Also my mojito was like it came right out of Florida, so good.

Steak was a bit over cooked. Usually the food is excellent, perhaps just an off day for the cook.

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.

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.
