The food here is always first-rate. Our most recent dinner was no exception. Service was excellent too, although the waiter, who had been there something like 40 years, was a tad too chatty. I started with their Oysters Rockefeller, some of the best I've ever had. I selected the tuna from their wide assortment of fish dishes. I like it... More

While I wouldn't hesitate to say the food was outstanding for our group of six, it was the fantastic waiter who really made this event special. From his delightful table-side manners, to his honest approach to recommendations. Of course, we had to try the stone crabs (being from Maryland, we tend to stick to our good old friendly blue crabs).... More

Joe's is always a good idea. We had the stone crabs which are always great and fresh. Even the french fries were crunchy and fried to perfection. Don't miss it if you're in Chicago or Miami.

Recommended by a friend from Chicago for a great steak my family was very underwhelmed by Joe's. The shrimp cocktail and drinks kept this place from being a one star given the price, sterile service and grisly ribeye and over-cooked filet. For me, this place failed miserably at trying to be like Mastro's Ocean Club in Scottsdale. Save your cash,... More

We thought we may have a chance to get a high table at the lounge, but after a while, we realized that you have to be an Expert! We patiently waited at the bar to be seated at the restaurant and it was Worth the wait (probably close to an hour on a Friday night.) Service and Food is at... More

Every time we visit Chicago we dine at Joe's. It is consistently great. Staff is always friendly and accommodating. Had a great seafood salad for lunch. Burger is always good.

Saw the reviews on here and wanted to give it a try, and man are we glad we did! 5 of us went here and 2 got filets that was absolutely amazing! 1 got a pork chop that to die for, and the others got fish and chips that melted in your mouth! I highly recommend this joint, it was... More

We were lucky and managed to get a table at short notice, as they were full. Our waiter was very friendly and recommended the right cut of steak for my wife & the stone crabs for me - which were both delicious. He also quite rightly wouldn't let us order a full onion loaf & recommended the chargrilled corn, which... More

This was a favorite of friends with whom we travelled to Chicago, so of course we had dinner here. The service and the food was excellent, but the tables were so crowded together that no one could move. There were six of us at our round table, but we couldn't carry on a conversation because of the overall din and... More
