The staff was friendly and attentive from the second we walked in the door. The promise of stone crab is what drew me to Joe's, so I started with "The Whale" appetizer: a priced-per-person spread that includes, for each, a stone crab claw, a king crab leg, a jumbo shrimp (cocktail), and a single portion of ceviche. It was enough... More

We went midweek at a reasonably early time (about 6pm), but it was heaving! Reservations are not taken for the tables at the front half of the restaurant and we got lucky as someone had just finished when we arrived. The waitress was really helpful and although it was busy, we didn't want long for anything. Drinks came almost immediately... More

A huge thank you to all the Joe's staff for making my husband's birthday dinner and our first trip to Chicago a memorable one. This place was packed...even on a Tuesday, which is always a good sign. Thank goodness we had made a reservation. Loved the atmosphere here. We enjoyed the six stone crabs; he had a ribeye and I... More

service, menue, and food were simply the best. The waiter was excellent, he knew his F&B and therefore you got really good advice and one sensed that he was not giving you false info.

Thanks to the Sheraton's concierge, I was lucky to get a reservation at Joe's restaurant. It was really crowdy. After a little waiting, -even if I was alone- they gave me a confortable table inside the main dining room. The dinner was absolutely perfect: I had a couple of stone crab, very delicious and after a steak of halibut with... More

Had lunch here with a party of 8. When we were all there, we were seated quickly. The server was very friendly and helpful, carefully explaining things to all of us, as this was everyone's first time to the place. The crab was tasty and not too messy. Even better was the steak I got as my main course. As... More

When stone crab in season, it is excellent. The atmoshphere is fantastic and the staff is very courteous. Try the lobster bisque and share the salad for the table. You will need reservations most days, and it is part of the Lettuce Entertain You group.

Took sister out to Joe's for birthday; we have frequented Joe's several times...at first the waiter seemed to be inattentive, which was of concern because this restaurant is not cheap... The tables were very close together and it seemed cramped and noisy, as you could hear the conversations from other tables... Women's bathroom was extremely cramped. The overall dining experience...
