Known for it's Stone Crab..this restaurant is at the top of the pyramid for this delicacy..but you pay! And it's worth it! Popular no matter the day of the week. The service is par excellence: professional, friendly and attentive. Our waiter, Steve, (there the longest) was in a class by himself...THE BEST! We ordered the Stone Crabs as an appetizer... More

We had a big group (20) there for dinner this week. Food was good, but for $200 per person it did not feel like reasonable value. Think they are living off the name a bit too much

We went as a large group, and all were satisfied. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, and it was amazing. I do believe it swam in an ocean of butter, so it was very rich. The king crab appetizer was wonderful. The meal serving sizes are small with little or no sides included. Be sure to order multiple sides to... More

I've been coming to chicago for 16 years and every year Joe's Stone Crab makes the list. This year we went here two times, which is unheard of, considering the amount of restaurants in Chicago. A couple things I will say about Joes. 1) It is crowded because it is so popular, at least during a convention, so make sure... More

Joe's is a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant, so I expected dinner to be very good, and it was. We shared a half dozen of Beau Soleil oyster from British Columbia with their frozen champagne vinagarette. Hubby had the Ahi Tuna and loved it. We have never seen a piece so thick and perfectly prepared. I enjoyed the grilled seafood platter... More

My husband and I had an early dinner there. We visited Joes on a previous trip and were not disappointed by the return trip. Denise took care of us. She was extremely professional but also warm, and took the trouble to learn our names and keep track of whether we needed anything. Can recommend the lump crab cake highly (crisp... More

Electric buzzing energetic restaurant. Quite the crowd. Food was excellent, despite the large size of the restaurant. The Dover Sole was amazing. Seafood Grill was excellent too. Service was great, with a good ratio of service staff to the large amount of patrons. Deserts are very large, order the half size, or share the full size. Stone crabs excellent too.

This is one of the best seafood restaurants in Chicago! The high energy atmosphere makes for a theater of dining, with excellent food quality. While this is not a restaurant for the faint of wallet, it's pricey, and worth it.

This restaurant takes you back in time...the servers are pristinely dressed, and the service is beyond compare. My husband had Sea Bass, and I had the crab legs...both were outstanding. It was a special birthday dinner for me, and it could not have been more enjoyable. Thank you to our server Steven for his impeccable service and presentation.
