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.
Always wonderful, just love to go back !!!
I was so disappointed with Joe's. It came highly recommended from a friend in Cleveland. The service was ok. The food was so underwhelmed. I will say my daughter ordered the bone in filet, and loved it. My husband had the bone in halibut which was ok and I had the grilled seafood platter and the shrimp and lobster were really overcooked. Not something I expected at this price point.
Our waiter David was fantastic! Knowledgeable, helpful, observant, & fun. The king crab was delicious, sweet, & tender. Table side service added to presentation. Stone crabs were also fantastic, an awesome signature dish. Crab bisque was delicious,sweet, & creamy.
Our dining experience was exquisite. Kevin was our concierge for the evening and his deepened understanding of the menu and history of the restaurant was extraordinary. If I lived in Chicago, I would eat once a month.....guaranteed!!
Our waitress was the best! We will be coming back soon!
The waitress made our evening extra special. Brought my husband here for his birthday and she went out of her way to come and ask what type of cake he would like when he was away at the restroom. She brought two different types because I wasn’t sure which one he’d prefer, she didn’t charge us for them and even had a lit candle in both. It was very sweet and thoughtful and made his birthday dinner a bit more special. The food was amazing and the service was over the top. Highly recommend going here.
I know supperior customer service when I see it , and I can sum it up in two words, David Jacobson.
Food was excellent and our server was attentive and sweet.
Overall the visit was a little less satisfying than it normally is. Had trouble connecting with the waitress which makes it hard to have a really good time. She was good, just no connection. The halibut was a little on the dry side and not very flavorful. Having waited months knowing this would be the special when we arrived I was sorely disappointed in the result. Have had it many times in the past, it was great. Not so much tonight. Tried the fried green tomatoes...very good. High point of the night was when they brought me the wrong dessert. I figured it out about the second bite that it was not what I ordered. It was something called Havana Dream. Just incredibly good. This will now be my favorite dessert here. Do not think this is a bad review. I love Joe's and they treat us really well. I would recommend this place without hesitation. One SLIGHTLY off night does not change that.
We always have great food and wonderful service. A warm and inviting atmosphere, you feel at home.
Tim the waiter was great!
Fun time, good food, good service, special occasion with daughter at Joe's. And as usual count on the city of Chicago for lousy, expensive parking, lane closures on Kennedy expway going home, etc. City of Chicago govt., anything to bilk you out of a dollar.
Had a great time, meal and service on a busy Thursday evening.
Great !!! A very nice experience !
A great place to have dinner, my girlfriend and I enjoyed the environment as well as the food. 10 out of 10 recommend!!!!!
Joe's is my favorite restaurant when I return to Chicago. Food is great, service excellent - efficient and pleasant without hovering.
Unbelievable experience. Wouldn’t change a thing. Food was great from start to finish. Our server Matt helped guide us through our meal selection so well.

A pesar de tener la salvación no se hicieron esperar 15 minutos
La calidad del Crab Cake ha disminuido con respecto al año pasado
La carne sigue siendo deliciosa al igual que las colas de langosta

Consistently awesome at Joe’s! Special experience for our family each time we go there!
A+ food and service. Best steakhouse in the city. Always reliable.
Amazing- Shellfish Seafood platter starter, Bone-in halibut! , baked sweet potato and creamed spinach. best pie ever: Key lime pie and Tres leches pie!! Lamar was an excellent waiter!
Great menu. Tons of great and delicious options whether you want steak or seafood.
Though the wait to be seated (with reservations) was slightly too long, the food and service were amazing.
We love Joe’s because it’s outstanding every time. We enjoyed a shrimp cocktail appetizer and delicious wine. Our server was very good. I really enjoyed the Dover Sole. It was fantastic and perfectly cooked. My husband had the rib eye steak that was delicious and cooked just right. We also enjoyed a great bottle of wine and yummy fruit for dessert. Thanks for a fabulous dinner
Food was excellent (bone in filets)...server was great....sons 30th bday was a hit!
Excellent all around. Service was first class, food was prepared perfectly. Pricey but worth every penny.
It's always the best meal!! We had the stone crabs, Dover sole, mac and cheese, and green beans! The peanut butter pie is always amazing too!
As always, this is the BEST restaurant we’ve ever eaten at! Always consistent, the service is exceptional as is the food! Continues to be our families favorite of all time!
It has always been a great experience to dine at Joe’s.
The food was wonderful, but the service really set them apart. Our server Josh was great, funny and polite and always on top of things without being over bearing. Just an absolute professional. I had no complaints about my experience here it was a delight.
The food was excellent and the service was great.
We had an amazing server -Justin! The food was fantastic and we will definitely be back.
This was our second time there and we can see why it is a top 100 restaurant in the world. They have real food and portions. We will try to go here every time we are in Chicago
Halibut is currently in season and the sandwich was fantastic.
