Description: Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's features the signature 16 oz. Bone-In Filet Mignon and 22 oz. New York Strip Steak. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie.Defined by a standard of hospitality born a century ago, Joe’s offers a dining experience that is timeless. Tuxedo-clad service provides a sense of tradition, while delivering the warmth and caring service that has defined Joe’s since 1913.

“Pricey but well worth it.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

For us no trip to a US city that has a Joe's is not complete until we have sat in the bar area and stuffed our faces with all that Joe's has to offer! We have never sat in the restaurant bit. Instead we prefer to sit in the bar with the menu and have a continuous supply of dishes and wonderful wine.
No words can describe the food and the whole experience of Joe's. Even in Chicago when the bar was really busy with after-work diners and theatre goers, we sat in a little island of happiness while all around us was organised chaos...just truly divine!
Joe's is certainly in our top five restaurants in the World - yes the World and believe me we have eaten in some very good places!
Please open a branch in the UK....I will have to pay my salary straight into your bank account though.
Just go and eat here....ignore the price for once and just sample pure quality - the way food should be!

“Perfect place for a special occasion! Favorite restaurant of our entire trip!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Wow! Incredible place to celebrate my sister's birthday! Plan ahead as reservations book up quickly. Luckily we got in and had a 7:30 pm res for a Saturday night. Complimentary coat check, busy waiting area in the middle of the bar area but fun environment. Unfortunately we had to wait 30 minutes for our table but it happens! To our surprise, when we arrived to our table, a manager was waiting for us with a complimentary appetizer, apologizing for the wait!! So amazing! It included crab claws/lobster tails/ceviche/shrimp cocktail - excellent!! Drinks were fabulous. All of our meals were amazing (scallops, shrimp mojo, and grilled fishermans platter - amazing!!!) we ordered a dessert but because the staff felt that we waited too long for drinks (which we didn't even notice because we were having too much fun!!) they brought us FOUR complimentary desserts!! Wow again! Key lime pie was amazing! The staff went above and beyond and now I see why many many tables were celebrating special occasions at Joe's. Lively environment with excellent food and service.. Why go anywhere else?? Thanks to Joe's for a night to remember!

“Lunch at the bar with Taylor...”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Allow Taylor to spoil you and have lunch at the bar! We stumbled upon Joe's on very cold Sunday afternoon and had the most fun at lunch! Gigantic portions and a lovely wine list.
Our bartender was keeping us in stitches and the rest of the staff very friendly.

We'll be back.

“Can't stop thinking about the delicious food!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We ate at Joe's Saturday night and had the most enjoyable experience. Mark was our server and he talked us through the menus history if the restaurant the original owners, he was just GREAT! We had the stone crab and the crab cake app both were heavenly, the mustard sauce for the crab was fabulous, our grand-daughter ordered the filet med-rare and was delivered just perfect! My husband had an another order of the stone crab and really enjoyed them, I ordered the scallops with pork belly and never ate anything more delicious than that! We ordered the apple pie to go and Mark gave us a key lime pie as a bonus, both were out of this world.... We highly recommend Joe's for an truly fantastic dining experience.
