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.
The service was fantastic, everyone was very friendly. However, the quality of the food for the price was not near as good as I expected. The scallops were cold. The mashed potatoes were cold. The crab legs were steamed properly, however the flavor just wasn't amazing. Overall I think there are pretty places in Chicago to eat for the cost.
Mary was our server and was EXCELLENT.
I am 6'9''tall and was at a table near the path of the waiters so it was tight.
Overall everything was excellent.
We will be back.
The oysters Rockefeller are the BEST IN THE CITY. I've always loved the ambiance and the food
Love coming to Joes! Always great service and amazing food!
This place was fantastic. The best king crab legs I ever had. Old fashions were delicious. The only small negative I have to say is my bone in rib eye was a bit fatty for my liking it was still great however. Highly recommend.
outstanding as usual, great service and for. thank you
We had an excellent server! She went far above and beyond!! I don’t have her name but she was from Newcastle, England.
Wonderful dinner. Service was outstanding. My wife and I each different seafood salads. Each were great. Great wine selection.
Had a delicious meal. Great food.
Ambiance lively, service smooth in such a full and tight atmosphere.
Always a great experience! Food is well prepared. Great service.
I've eaten at many Chicago steakhouses and this is the absolute best, hands down. Our server only enhanced our experience. He was knowledgeable and helpful throughout the evening. I will only eat here again when I'm looking for a great meal.
My fiancé and I always enjoy eating here but anytime I use the restroom I'm very disappointed. For a nice restaurant I would like to use the bathroom that is clean and not disgusting. Turned my stomach when I had to try to come back to my table and enjoy my meal.
Absolutely amazing experience. The food and service were outstanding!!! Couldn’t give a higher recommendation.
Service was great. Food was very good. I didn’t love the seafood salad. The dover sole was great. Stone crab great. King crab very good but a little small. Crispy Brussels sprouts very good. Desserts delicious.
Always fabulous and consistent!! Seafood is fresh and steak always perfectly cooked! Denise was amazing!!
It seems few places live up to the high priced cache, but Joe's did and actually exceeded expectations.
We visit yearly and bring our young children. They request the crab claws and devour them along with fries and shrimp. Mac and cheese could use more Mac. The sauce is rich and creamy and fills most of the dish so with a side of corn it’s barely enough to feed our small 7 year old. Shrimp with fries for kids is delish and because of fries is enough for our 4 year old. Adult menu is great! Service this year was underwhelming compared to previous visits. Non attentive and didn’t cater to the kids where as servers in the past anticipated the needs of children. Make kids happy and parents will return!
Always have the freshest fish and leanest meat, been coming to Joes for over 20 plus years and enjoy it every time, no wonder it is my daughter's favorite place
Amazing as always.
Excellent food quality and service. Wine list was limited and over-priced was only real negative, and for my liking, felt too cramped / too close to 'neighbors' while eating, and so loud it was difficult to carry-on a discussion with 6 people at a round table...some people may prefer this lively atmosphere, but was troubling for our purpose.
Always a wonderful time at Joe’s. Excellent food, excellent service and an excellent time!
I love this place!
We had a fantastic lunch to celebrate my Birthday and as a Bonus.....an unexpected Surprise.... The Shannon Rovers were there and performed as they marched thru the dining room!!
It doesn’t get any better than that!
Thanks to Jim and our server Josh who were “The Best” at doing their job extremely well!
It was a wonderful experience! Our server, Joshua, was the best. Our only regret is that we do not live closer and cannot be frequent customers. Outstanding!!
Wonderful dinning experience. Classy and well made food that emphasizes quality ingredients and rock solid cooking over trendy presentation. Good wine selection and very suave service. Our waiter was a consummate champ.
Great oysters fair calamari
Service was almost too fast almost felt rushed
Been there second time. Not unhappy but will try other foids when in chicago next time
Celebrating my daughter’s engagement...great food and service! A bit too noisy as we were seated in the middle of the restaurant. Should have requested toward the back of the room as it would have been a tad more private. Loved the classic “super club” feel and terrific service by multiple staff assigned to our table!
Awesome wait staff and the food was excellent!
Will try the Miami, DC and Vegas locations as well.
Joe’s is our favorite place for special
Food was delicious and the service made the experience warm and welcoming. Thanks Chris!
From Chris at the front desk to Timothy our table and of course the food, it was a wonderful day. We will be back for sure!!
Service was great. Food was not as good as usual. My wife and I go there around once a month. We will be back because this was uncharacteristic of joes. Again service was great.
The food is always consistently good. This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants. I love dining at this establishment.
I orderd rip eye steak and seafood platter and it came out very cold. The waiter was so rush and rude. It was my birthday dinner but very disappointed and never recommend for a special day.
Excellent meal. Servers were outstanding, timing always perfect. Great choice of entrees and sides, it was a wonderful evening!
We found Joe's service to be extremely nice. Our waitress was attentive and even the other staff were friendly and interacted with us which we enjoyed. The food was cooked perfectly and our waitress offered helpful suggestions. Our only negative experience was our drinks. The drinks were quite weak. My father sent his back and his second was slightly better, but still tasted watered down. I felt the same with my martini. Other than the drinks, we loved our experience and would return!
The service was exceptional. Very nice, polite and attentive staff. Wait time was reasonable and food was delicious! Worth every penny I spent. Definitely will be going back.
