Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab
What Insiders Are Saying
Joe's is consistently one of the best steakhouses in town, and you shouldn't even order steak. Stone crabs are where it's at.
I decided to dine solo on this occasion and requested booth seating which isn’t a favorite amongst restaurants but it was early and I was accommodated. I have to say my server, Richard, was great, friendly and accommodating as well.
First off was the Manhattan clam chowder that I was very pleased to have since I am dairy free. It was good but would have been great had there been more clams. I chose the stone crab, large size , and although I cannot imagine what the medium would look like, it was a reasonable enough size but for $84.95, I was definitely underwhelmed. Lastly(I was starving!!) I had the seafood pasta minus the basil/pesto & Parmesan mixture. It was fantastically fresh, flavorful and delicious. It was also aesthetically pleasing. I will return!

Another great meal at Joes
Food was very good and so was the service
Very impressed with the variety and unique menu. I’m glad we got to experience snow crab. Great service.
Such a wonderful experience. Service (Steve) and food were both exceptional. Grapefruit Margaritas were the best I’ve ever had.
Great service and ambience. Wouldn’t miss the experience when in Chicago. Steaks see great. Sides ok. Service was excellent!
Perfect service, great ambience, shrimp is delicious. My friend had Mediterranean Turkey Burger, which she said was very well seasoned. I will go back.
Great food, don't miss the pies. A very enjoyable evening.
Love this place. Food is outstanding! I had petite filet - melted in your mouth. Husband had the sole- also amazing. Don’t forget key lime pie- so light. Our waitress Ceara so attentive and sweet. Yes, it’s noisy and need reservations but so worth it.
This restaurant is absolutly authentic.
I am sure to go again!!
Incredible as always
Absolutely wonderful! Joe’s is by far my favorite restaurant in Chicago!! The food is consistently outstanding and the service is always extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
Danny, our waiter, was WONDERFUL!! The mac&cheese side was amazing. The potatoes and the corn were also great. My son's bone in filet was great and the fried chicken was a super surprise! It was fantastic!
Excelente comida las carnes y pescados de primera con buen servicio
Awesome food! Best meal I've had in awhile. The stone crab was so yummy and that mustard sauce served with it was amazing!!
Was my first time and it was absolutely outstanding - the service was stellar and the food was fantastic - got there for an early dinner - the place is clearly very popular for good reason. Will be back for sure
I've been to Joe's many times. Service is always excellent. Food delicious. Comfortable atmosphere where you can talk to others at your table and not have to shout, etc. Will be back my next trip to Chicago.
lovwe eating here
great food and service !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Outstanding food & service. Power lunch/dinner ambiance. Satisfaction guaranteed
Excellent service and food. My favorite restaurant for special occasion. Great bread basket!
Martha was great !
A must try if you are in the area. Mother's Day was really busy and we were never made to feel rushed through our dinner at all. Our server Liz was fantastic ! Try the sea bass and calamari. Steaks and grilled seafood platters were also cooked perfectly.
We were celebrating Mother’s Day and definitely wanted to be at Joe’s. As always, we had a great experience. We were seated in a timely fashion and that was great since we had a reservation. The table was in a good location. Our waitress was attentive and the food was good. The food came out quickly and we didn’t have to wait long for our dessert. The sparking Rose’ was also very good. As always, we had a good experience at Joe’s Seafood and will be back again.
Mother’s Day lunch was the occasion. We had a last minute change to our reservation. We contacted the maitre ‘d and he made every effort to accommodate us. It worked out and we had a very nice meal with excellent service delivered by a professional and courteous staff. We really like this restaurant and we wanted to tell everyone to go to Joe’s when visiting Chicago. You won’t be disappointed. The prices are in line for a nicer seafood restaurant.
Excellent food, excellent service, great atmosphere.
We have been patrons for years. Always reliable, impressive and unmatched service and food. Have been so many times and never had so much as a less than perfect experience. We may try others occasionally but we always come back to Joe’s!
The best fish I’ve ever had, was very delish and flavorful. The service was awesome I took my boyfriend there this past weekend and our waiter was phenomenal. Everything was fantastic! No complaints
We went there for our anniversary and it was wonderful. The service is outstanding
and the food is also a delight to eat. A wonderful menu and atmosphere. We love the place.
Very traditional and abbreviated menu, but what they do is all done superbly. Don't come looking for inventive cuisine. Settle for pristine oysters (black pepper vinegar ice mignonette is a hit), crab bisque rivaling the best Charleston she-crab soup, the improbably best anywhere fried green tomatoes with a thin, lively buttermilk herb sauce, and the famous bone-in grilled halibut. When craving for stone crab, Joe's is the no-brainer choice. For the paleos, Joe's also takes steaks and chops as seriously as anybody around. Overall, a civilized oasis in the urban bustle, white linen, tuxedoed waiters, decent wine list with a few bargains, and an overall feeling of old-fashion, unhurried leisure.
Always amazing!! Love it
My experience at Joe’s was genuinely the best dining experience I have ever had in my life. The food was absolutely wonderful and the service could not have been better. I would recommend this to anyone I know as it was something I look forward to doing my next and every time I’m in Chicago.
Great, enjoyable, delicious family dinner. Perfect.
The food was so good. Our server Michelle provided excellent service. It was a wonderful experience.
My younger brother Edward decided to take me out for my 53rd birthday and asked me to choose a restaurant, I chose Joe’s because I’ve heard so much about it I wanted to have a good experience. We absolutely loved the food, the ambience and the service at Joe’s seafood steakhouse and Stone crab restaurant. Our waitress Colleen was very attentive and very informative. Her warmth made us feel right at home as we enjoyed our appetizer, main course and a wonderful desserts. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family and visitors to our city . Chicago has so many restaurants to choose from, joe’s seafood, steak house and stone crab is definitely a gem in Chicago.
