“A tremendous meal for a large crowd”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

A group of about 45 of us took over the separate room at the back of the restaurant. They provided a bar for our group only, which made it easy and convenient to get drinks. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I ordered the bone in filet which was excellent. Colleagues who had the crab cakes raved about them too. Plates of appetizers were served ahead of the meal and were excellent. The mushrooms were the best. Altogether a great venue, excellent service, and superb food. Well done guys.

“Very delish stone crabs and chowder and great vibe”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

I went to Joe's for dinner on my first night in Chicago, as I had heard from a friend they have good seafood. The experience turned out to be much better than that. The restaurant was abuzz with diners and people waiting for their tables. I sat at the bar area where you can have oysters, stone crab legs, and all the good stuff on their menu.
I had a chowder, the signature stone crab legs, and oysters and all were very amazing. And with good service to top it off!!
You pay a premium but I had a very memorable dinner here. Would definitely go back again.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I ordered surf and turf. The steak was cooked perfectly as I'd asked for it to be. The lobster was well presented and easy to extract from the shell. The service was very attentive and we actually changed the number or people in our reservation and the restaurant was very accommodating.

The knowledge of the wines was impressive and good suggestions were made on the type of wine we liked which would also compliment the food. Would also recommend the pudding!

“Just ok, nice but there is way better & cheaper out there”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Food and service was ok.. I had a seafood platter of cod, shrimp, calamari & squid..the food was nice but nothing i could nt do muslef.. the portion was very small also...in my opinion this place is way overpriced for and is really a glorified bar food eatery.. Definitely would never have a reason to go back.

“average meal - above average price”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

While the service we got was excellent the food was just average. I ordered the salmon and my wife ordered the Crab Claws. The salmon piece was small and undercooked. According to the chef - "that is the way this fish is served". I sent it back and it returned more cooked but still underdone. My wife enjoyed her Crab Claws. We ordered desert - Chocolate Pie and Key Lime pie. Both were outstanding!
