We didnt have reservations so we waited for a table in the front of the restuarant (10 minutes) on a tuesday night. i ordered some of the stone crab claws because i had never had any. They were good but nothing better than any other crab claw ive tasted. the crab bisque was really good as well as the mashed... More

I went there in May and again in August. It is a nice restaurant but a little bit crowded. Despite the fact I had booked a table, we had to wait for 25 min. The waiter was nice but too much focus to sell another wine, food... Sea food was good but nothing special.

This place opened in the fall of 2000 and it has been amazing since. The fish, stone crab and the bone filet are unbelievable. Love the Jennies potatoes, cole slaw, grilled tomatoes and fried asparagus. The oysters rockefeller and shrimp Dejonge are amazing and the second mortgage is an amazing cold sampler of great quality. SIdes are large so share.... More

Although the crabs are served cold, they are seasoned well and very taste. The price is very affordable and the service was wonderful.

It was my second visit after 7 years. My first impression was very good so we gave it another try. The interior was classy, sevice was sharp, seafood was excellent. Must try the stone crab.

Joe's is an awesome restaurant which we visited for lunch. The service was perfect, friendly and funny. The food was outsstanding and reasonably priced (expensive bur for seafood less than average at this quality). We had stone crabs, king crabs, mac and cheese, salmon and a lot more. Btw. Their blody mary's are outstanding as well.

... or at least one of the top three. Matched the White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport and Altnaharra in Scotland (both top Michelin rated). Excellent service and spectacular food. Hard place to find unless you are looking for it... but make the effort... down below the Millennium Mile. You won't be disappointed (except maybe when the bill arrives :-))

We had the lobster & snow crab which was excellent, the couple with us had steaks that where cooked to perfection. Make sure you... More

This was our first trip to Chicago, and we found Joe's by searching on Urbanspoon. From the second we arrived the service was outstanding. We were a little early for our reservation, so we sat in the bar area and grabbed a drink. We got our drinks right as they called our name to sit down, but the host immediately... More
