Expensive but shorter lines than in Miami

Good lunch with stone crab special. Nice salad and hashbrowns to go with it. A bit pricey but it makes a special lunch if you have reason to splurge a bit.

The service, atmosphere, food, everything from the minute you enter, is very elegant and upscale. I purchased the famous crab pin after our waiter told us the story behind the pins that the staff wears. The proceeds from the sale of the pins, goes into an emergency fund that is used when a member for the "family" (staff) endures a... More

We visited Joe's and was very happy with the service and food! If you are looking for an inexpensive meal, don't go here. It was my family of 4 and we were all very pleased! The service and experience is second to none! It was expensive, $350 for 4 of us, included an appetizer, meal, drinks and a dessert to... More

If you enjoy Steak and Seafood, you must visit. From the appetizer to dessert you will enjoy every bite. My goodness, my husband and I can't get enough each time we visit. Our waiter was available consistently, knowledgeable of all menu selections, answered our questions and was very friendly. We even saw Bill Walton as he was leaving after having... More

Not inexpensive in any way. Of course, when you choose a restaurant like this, you should be expecting a hefty tab. But, that aside, everything from appetizers, salads, soups, main courses and sides were exquisite. Everything was prepared properly and as requested. Our waiter offered advice on meal selections to assure our experience was superb. We had show tickets for... More

The food was fabulous. Stone crab claws so sweet and delicate. Porterhouse steak (shared) well worth the extra cost. Not cheap, but delicious. I'm not from these parts, so not sure if this is the 'norm', but is the reason for only 4 stars. We both felt 'hurried along' during the entire meal. It was quite obvious with constant wine... More

We had been hoping to dine at another famous restaurant in Chicago, but had no chance to get in. Joe's was fully booked for dinner in their traditional dining rooms. We decided to eat in the bar area. There are high tables, a counter, and the bar all serving the regular dinner menu. We are so glad that we made... More

Steak was perfect. Potato was not. Had to send it back. Tasted like it had been cooked in the morning and reheated. Funny they did not ask me if I wanted another one. We had 4 others at dinner and all were very pleased with the meal. I would go back.

Joe's is iconic. One of the best restaurants in town. Been here several times alone and with friends. Also, I recommended it to a lot of other friends. None were disappointed. One of the best steaks I've ever had was here in Joe's. The steak was perfect as far as I'm concerned. Also, the lobster bisque was very delicious. I'm... More

I went to dinner with a friend and he suggested Joe's. We had to wait for a table, and the bar was packed. When we sat down, my friend said "you have to try the dover sole. It is the best seafood dish I have ever had". I have to agree, he was right! This is the best meal you... More
