“Really great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We tried to plan dinner here during our weekend in Chicago but prime time reservations seem to be booked several days in advance. Based on the food and the service, it's easy to understand why. Lunch was our choice then and was a really nice experience. Steve and his assistant took great care of us from the Stone Crab appetizer to the slices of pie we enjoyed for dessert. We did not have any food that was not outstanding. Read reviews from other steak houses sbout pretentious service, but that was not the case here. We will definitely visit here again.

“Awesome Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is our favorite restaurant in Chicago and while it is expensive, we finally were able to go for a late lunch....and the lunch prices are very reasonable. We had friends in from out of town before the Pearl Jam concert and both of them loved it. Take your servers recommendations they are spot on. At our table we had 2 steaks, the crab legs and the fried chicken.....I don't usually like getting crab legs, to much work, but at Joe's they are split and so easy to eat. Steaks are amazing, their seasoning they bring out to the table is great. The wines by the glass list....is some great value....get a bottle off of there. Very nice.

“Great steaks excellente service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Steaks are great, try out the ones that come with the bone. Excellent service, the waiter knew all of the dishes and ingredients top to bottom and gave us some good recommendations. Can't miss the homemade key lemon pie!

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

This place rocks! We were able to get a seat in the bar with very little wait. You should really make advance reservations if you know you want to eat here as it's always busy. We had the rock crabs and they were great. Our server was awesome and made great wine suggestions. The filet mignon was perfect and the mashed potatoes were as good as it gets. This is a great choice if you're looking for a five star dinner.

“Class and Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has that old time feel of Chicago. Felt out of place because it felt like many business people were there entertaining clients. However, our waiter Hank was the best. He answered our questions and made excellent recommendations on our visit. I would only go back if I knew I was getting Hank. Key lime pie is awesome. Steak was done just right.
