We have eaten at all the Joe's restaurants in Chicago,Las Vegas and Washington . Much better than the original Joe's Stone crab in South Beach. The menu is substantial .Seafood and steaks are superb. The service is impeccable . Ask for a booth and start with the jumbo shrimp cocktail appetizer. My favorite dinner location in Chicago. Be sure to... More

I was traveling to Chicago last week and made reservations for dinner at Joe's seafood. I called two weeks in advance and was looking forward to the Stone Crab Claws. We had to wait about 20 min after our reservations to be seated and when we were finally seated I was told they were all out of the stone crab!... More

Service is fabulous here. I had the small filet at lunch that came with a side and desert. The filet (with requested bernaise sauce) was wonderful. Try just a little of the seasoning that they bring to the table...but be careful...it's salty. My aspargus was cooked just right. The banana creme pie was unreal. Why am I not giving this... More

The Alaskan crab and steak was excellent as were the stone crab claws. Excellent wine list This is a buzzing venue Bookings essential Only downside is the lack of space or tables and chairs for a drink whilst called to your table

I was recently in Chicago on business and had the opportunity to eat at Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab. This restaurant lived up to its reputation in every way. The crab cakes are really quite incredible- all crab rolled in excellent breadcrumbs. The stone crabs: they really live up to the proverbial "last meal on death row" kind... More

My husband and I foolishly thought that, because it was a weeknight, showing up a without a reservation would be okay. This place was packed and definitely reservations are required, but the maitre'de standing nearby heard that we didn't have a reservation and quickly stepped up to take care of us. We walked into an elegant, old fashioned, supper-club atmosphere... More

I had heard good things about Joe's from the locals and had eaten at their South Beach mother ship many years ago. Unfortunately, stone crab claws were out of season We had a large 20 person group in one of their private dining rooms so were limited in our selections. Our server was great, so that was not the issue.... More

Ate there on a Friday night, got seated right away. Food, phenomenal. Mojito, yum. Clearing the crumbs off your table so it always looks beautiful, putting it a step above many others. Small details, eye contact, nice people, honest recommendations about food choices from our waiter, not even pointing to most expensive items, I liked it. We had the fish... More
