The meal was excellent as always. The Stone crab legs were fresh and delicate. We tried the chop steak and it was a bit salty. It was taken off the bill. The bone in ribeye was excellent as always in addition to the brussels sprouts and Atlantic cod. The grilled octopus salad was a great starter. We ended dinner with the chocolate fudge pie which was phenomenal.\n\nService was excellent as always.

First visit to Joe's Chicago and it was a great experience. On a Thursday evening arriving at 6:30 the place was buzzing both in the bar and the restaurant. After a drink we were seated with no wait and experienced Steven an expert waiter. He provided great inside to the restaurant and menu without being overbearing. An appetizer specialmwas the barbecue octopus which was excellent as was the tune and crab cakes(no stuffing.)\n\nThe wine list runs the gamut having choices for all price ranges.

The food, as always, is superb of its type, Seafood/Steak House/High End Traditional American. The fish is fresh and moist, the meats flavorful to the point of orgasmic and the desserts just perfect for a superb end to a fantastic meal.\nKudos to our server David and as always, extra special mention of Matt M. for treating our family like V.I.P.s.. We are not worthy, but we will humbly & graciously accept. An evening so very well spent. Until the next time...

Our server was so lovely. And I realize that I'm being a brat. My husband surprised me with a birthday lunch in the middle of the work day. My steak was so over done but we didn't have time to send it back. He's a hungry man so he ate. But I watched him eat my birthday steak with a sad face. It was super busy and I'm in the industry so I TOTALLY get how this happens. But it was too busy to even address it. HOWEVER the service was beautiful!!

They claim to have the best crab in the city. We couldn't be more disappointed in the crab you get for $60! You have been warned. The king crab was the size of snow crab! They can't cook a steak right, medium came out rare. They took the steak back and put it back on the grill. Only to burn the pieces I already cut off. There is major room for improvement. \nThe pie is great. So that is recommended.

We have been to Joe's many times. We had a few issues - the steaks not cooked as ordered . We ordered medium and they were bloody rare. The meal was taken back to the kitchen to correct. Also, our waiter brought all the food out at the same time. I didn't think I had to tell him to bring out the salads before the entrees. Maybe this was an off day....but I was still disappointed.\n\nThanks

We had great stuff much about Shaw's over the years, we thought we'd try it during Restaurant Week in early February. I can't say enough about the service; it was outstanding, though we were there early in a week night. As far as the food goes, it was good, a bit dry, but certainly nothing to rave about. For the money Hugo's Catch 35 or Gibson's is a munch better value, and their interiors are much more current.

My husband and I went for Restaurant Week to check it out. I tried last year and wasn't able to get a reservation, but we were able to get one before Restaurant Week started this year(2017). Our server Charles was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed two drinks each and tried the two options that were offered for Restaurant Week. It wasn't suggested to us like some restaurant do. We knew that's what we wanted to order. We had the Crab Cake and the Rockefeller for appetitiziers. They're not part of the package for Restaurant Week. The Crab Cake was so fresh and yummy that I can still taste it!! My husband enjoyed the Rockefeller and so did I. He had the Filet Migon and I had the Stone Crab dinner(the two menu items for Restaurant Week) which also included desserts. Everything was freshly made and for me that's the best part of any experience. My only disappointment was that the food was not served hot.

Joe's Seafood in Chicago is always a special treat. The waiters serve with proficiency and expertise. They are proud of their food and level of service. The seafood is\nfresh and amazing. Crab cakes have gotten smaller over the years, but still a special recipe\nunequalled by other LEYE Chicago area restaurants. The crab claws were not cut well this time and had to be cracked open more, but they are a terrific treat. There is not much crab, because it is a delicacy. People with large appetites will need something more to satisfy. We went during restaurant week, which is a special treat because of the savings. \nThe cole slaw is a treat. The dessert offered with the week special, key lime , is just average.\nWe prefer the gold brick sundae. Crammed spinach is always excellent. This place is an institution. The only comment, is that there are very few women servers. It has the feeling of \na gentleman's club. Also, when there are special meals here for special occasions, Joe's always rises to the occasion. Stone crab claws are a treat in Illinois. And You do not need to travel to the Keys or Miami. \nJoe's is a top earning restaurant, and for good reason. We came with a senior citizen who had a\ncane, and they were most gracious and offered a chair while we waited for the table. One thing that could be improved is the waiting for a table, if You arrive a little early. Other LEYE restaurants will seat You immediately. Chicago is fortunate to have Joe's Seafood. Congratulations to the managers, chefs, and servers.

The fish is always perfectly cooked and of outstanding quality. The standard menu has a good variety of fish to choose from while the daily specials keep mixing it up a bit. The king crab legs are the best around and worth every penny. They even crack them open for you at tableside. The pies are excellent and every pie selection can be had as a half slice, which is great if you are like us and just want a couple of bites of something sweet to finish off a meal.

First time to Joe's — the top two impressions are the level of service by the staff and the superior quality of the food. \n\nOur server was patient, knowledgeable, and checked in on us often and at the right times, and was just a smooth operator in general. It's been a while since I've had that level of service.\n\nWe had oysters as our appetizer and our server was kind enough to suggest a mix of the three kinds available even though it's not explicitly on the menu. My date had the Filet and Tail, and I had the petite filet mignon with asparagus. (We were trying to eat lightly compare to some of the large cuts available on the menu.) We both loved our perfectly prepared food. The meat was cooked perfectly to order like out of a magazine. I pushed for a full slice key lime pie, which is sizable, and although it has fresh zest in the pie, doesn't have quite the level of sour punch i was looking for. \n\nI was the only one drinking, and I had the bubbly rose followed by a very nice pinot noir with a port for dessert, all the drinks were excellent. I found the wine list easy to understand and pleasant.\n\nThe only small quibble I have is that, while the lighting in our booth was pleasingly dramatic, the lighting in the restaurant itself and in the main seating areas was brighter, hindering the level of intimacy. Granted, I am particular on these things, but I've been to places recently that do execute on this in a better way. \n\nIt wasn't loud even though it was a completely full Sunday evening dinner service.\n\nI later joked that we might have to make coming to Joe's a monthly habit but we'll see if we can manage that with our budget. I found it a good value for the price point, and I look forward to our next visit.

My wife and I came for dinner before going to the theater. My wife had the Grilled Seafood Platter and I had the Wild Caught Striped Bass. Both dishes were seasoned and cooked perfectly. A side of Jennie's Mashed Potatoes completed the feast. We ordered drinks which were also mixed well, served in full sized glasses. And the service was spectacular. The wait staff always seemed to be there when you needed them. Water glasses kept filled, extra bread offered, etc. And there was no extreme wait time when it was time to get the check and pay it. It was a delightful experience that we hope to repeat soon.

The restaurant was ok. For it to be a 'high end' restaurant, our server was not that good. He didn't listen well, didn't check on us that much and when he did, he could tell that something was wrong, but didn't address anything. My filet mignon was dry even though it was suppose to be medium well. The server did have another one made, but the attention was not there. Our water server was much better and we thought he did an excellent job. I would recommend the restaurant, but I probably won't return. I would have thought the service would have been much better for the price.

Joe's is an excellent restaurant. The service was outstanding. All of the food (including the stone crab claws) was outstanding. My server was particularly helpful in suggesting a new wine to go with my first course (oysters). He was able to explain to the nuances of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (my usual choice) as compared to the French Loire Valley Sancerre. I found the explanation fascinating and tried the Sancerre. He was right; it was the perfect accompaniment for my oysters and it is now my new favorite. Joe's will continue to be one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago; it never fails to please!

We went for lunch during Restaurant Week. Normally I really love Joe's & go often. RW options were Stone Crabs or Steak, and having had them before, I chose the Stone Crabs. Order came w/creamed spinach and hashed browns, both of which were delicious! However, the Stone Crabs were almost inedible, though not for the expected reason. They were pre-cracked (as usual) however, not one solid piece of crab came out of any section of the shell. Its bad enough that you're only eating tiny shreds of crab, but unfortunately, every single bite had a tiny piece of shell in it!! Literally, I couldn't get one clean bite. Even tried just using my fingers instead (which I really dislike doing) and still couldn't get a shell-less bite. And for the first time ever, the service was 'lacking'. Server never asked about dessert, and then just dropped the check. When we asked about dessert, he said it was coming. We said we didn't get a chance to choose, and he said he ordered one of each because each dish came with a specific dessert. Really? Check out the RW menus...it says no such thing. Disappointing for sure, but I'd go back because its the only bad experience I've ever had at Joe's.

I go to Joe's a lot--perhaps monthly. However, normally it's for girls lunches and not date night. My husband loves Joe's as much as I do so we got a reservation for a Saturday night and hit date night. I was sad that I couldn't use my Lettuce points to treat him (no good after 3pm on Saturdays), but it's Joe's so it's worth it. His bone-in rib eye came out too fatty and it was replaced with apologies from our wonderful server and his manager. The new piece was perfect, according to my husband (I don't eat meat). I was a bit off-put that replacing the steak was all that happened. We're talking about a $60 piece of meat so afterward we were thinking that perhaps comping something smaller or giving us a piece of Havana Dream pie should probably have been the next order of business. But it's Joe's. And we freaking love Joe's. But those little issues did pull a star or two from our ratings.

We believed that our waitress had too many tables to wait on (not her fault) therefore causing us to have to wait more than the expectant time we should've. We visit Joe's quite often and are always happy, but Saturday was different. Also, they had the wine sitting right next to the booth where we were sitting making it very difficult for me to enter and exit my seat. The restaurant really should find a different sitting position to stand their wine. Furthermore, I never even ordered wine either. Overall, I will still visit Joe's because it's a great restaurant!

Been to Joe's several time in past 10 years. This has been my favorite restaurant in Chicago which I would highly recommend. This occasion lowered my review quite a bit. The service was no where up to par as in the past. Waiter was not available when needed. Asked bus service questions only answer from them was 'not your server'. The food was very good as always but when paying for the entire package it was disappointing. Ordered crab shelled table side. When came out no table side service. Did not offer hot towels for hands as have done every time in past. The service was what you would expect from a Applebees or Chili's on this occasion. I will return as their crab is spectacular but I definitely will lower my expectations on service. I brought three people for their first experience at Joe's and was nowhere near the experience I described to them. I don't believe they will return.

If having to wait to be seated the last couple of times I've dined here is any indication of how good it's food is, then Joe's is near the top. Their crab choices were too many to remember. Their steak selection was equally large. The number of sides, salads and apps rounded off a full menu. However, in spite of the abundance of choices with each dish prepared properly and being large, my secret recommendation is . . . shhhhhhh, the dessert pies! Quite a few 'made in house' choices left us in a quandary wondering which to order; however, having full or half size portions allowed us to share. They were all delicious and they by themselves make Joe's 'worth the drive' or wait in line. But please, keep the pies our secret.

I have been to this restaurant nearly a dozen times. I always go back for the stone crab and oysters. I have had better experiences than this time. Some of the dishes were overly salted. The services was slow, inaccurate, and not impressive. The restaurant seemed understaff, even though there were not that many diners there. I do not mind spending the money for a special occasion, but at that amount, I want my experience to be nearly perfect.

Great restaurant for superb service, efficient and personable. Special place to let that someone know they are special. Ask for Mercedes section, if U like a server with flavor and style with a smile. She is the best! Great seafood, steaks, lamb chops and granny's fried chicken! Sides are large enough to share too.

Food and service great reservation was for 7:30 I had 4 emails and a phone call confirming the reservation and each time was informed that the party had to all be there on time . we arrived at 7:00 - 7:15 but were not seated till 8:00. By that time I was starved and of course had some cocktails so bread would have been nice. It did not come. I went outside a couple of times felt better came back in complained to the front desk gentleman who said he would send a manager over, a manager never came. Bread was finally at the table the second time I went in, had some bread and some wonderful crab claws and enjoyed the rest of my evening

Love Joe's. In the past everything we have had has been amazing. Service is usually impeccable. This year we had a very average experience. Our entrees(Filet and stuffed shrimp) were great. Our waiter knew some patrons next to us and seemed to spend his time chatting it up with them instead of seeing what we needed. Potatoes Augratin- skip. We wanted to order a different side and dessert but our big waiter with slicked back hair was chatting it up. Our entrees were boxed to take home by the busser before he came over. I wish I could have left the whole tip to the busser. When you spend $200 for a dinner for two you should be blown away.

It is always best to make reservations. I usually use open table. Joe's is always busy for dinner. The bar itself is small and customers usually eat dinner at the pub tables so it's typically a little cramped in the bar area. The main dining room has a classic look. I love the bread basket which has a variety of rolls, crackers and bread. Of course they are known for their crab claws and legs and both are the best I've ever eaten. A special dessert was a turtle pecan pie which was phenomenal.

Shellfish is outstanding, hashbrowns are to die for and the coleslaw, although unusual, was a treat. banana cream pie was very good but had very little 'cream' and mostly was bananas (mmm) and oily whipped cream. Didn't care for the Rose by the glass so that can be skipped. Service was impecabble but the place was jam packed on a Friday afternoon and way too loud for me to hear my companion. I would recommend this place when it is not busy. Lots of clanging, banging and dropped silverware/trays and dishes make it even louder. One disappointing thing for someone who may be physically challenged is there is no place to sit and wait for a table. All the stools in the bar area are high-boys and were taken on the day we were there. Valet parking was a god-send at $16. Still we highly recommend this place as it never disappoints on the food meter.

If you're a connoisseur of stone crabs, this is not the place you want to go. The last few times I've gone they have run our of their largest sizes, which tend to be sweeter and certainly easier to eat. This time, as soon as we sat down, I asked the waiter to head to the kitchen and reserve three portions and he said, no problem. Unfortunately, when it was time for the entree, you guessed it, they ran out. They were nice and comped the junior claws but restaurants need to realize that this is not about saving a few dollars, it's about being able to experience what you came for. Joe's in Florida is much better.

Everytime I go to Chicago, I always go to Joe's. If you're staying near the Magnificent Mile it's an easy walk. My stone crabs weren't quite as good as other times in the past, but the Dover sole was excellent. The service is pretty good. The ambience can best be described as boisterous. The tables are small and close together. It's not necessarily bad, but depending upon what you're looking for or expecting, it might not be what you want. It's not cheap; that's why I can't give it 4 or 5 stars for value. But it is good! I would definitely recommend this place.

Would not recommend using the valet service there, it took us 40 minutes to get our car. After I gave the first guy our ticket, I waited 20 min and asked the guy at the counter if our car was on the way and he said yes, it'll be out front. I asked him to confirm how long it would take and he replied with it will be out front again. 20 more minutes had passed and I went back to ask and they said that the car was out front and I told them it was not my car, they then searched through their key station and finally pulled out my keys and asked if they were mine and I said yes. 40 minutes of waiting and our car was sitting in the remote lot the entire time.

The service we had on our visit was just impeccable. How often do you come to a restaurant where the servers all dress in tuxedos? Our server Steve was very knowledgeable with the selection of food and wine during our visit. What a terrific gentleman - so professional, polite, and always checking to see how things are going. Highly recommend asking for his section!\n\nThe food was just so good. The bread basket just like Downtown Chicago was terrific! For a guy that's trying not to eat carbs, I just couldn't resist. The oysters Rockefeller was tasty and delicious. I'm not a big fan of ceviche, but liked their shrimp and scallop appetizer too. \n\nLast week, my colleague had seafood mixed grill and he raved about it so much we ordered it here and oh so good. The star of the meal was the bone in ribeye. Was it worth the price? Every delicious bite it sure was! Cooked a perfect medium, with a great char and they give you this salt combo (little goes a long way), and ask for garlic butter on the side (you have to ask for it). One of the best steaks I've had. \n\nYou have to order side dishes as the entrees only has protein. The asparagus was cooked properly and glad they remove the skin, so it is very smooth when eating. \n\nGreat place for excellent service and an excellent meal.

My grilled seafood platter of Lobster tails, shrimp, and scallops was scorched/burnt in many places. The burned shells crumbled off and got all over the plate, so the burnt flavor infiltrated nearly every bite of my meal, even if the seafood meat was not actually burnt. I did not complain at the time, because I did not want to be that customer, but I regret that now. I would have thought that the chef would not put burnt food on a plate, but sometimes that is part of how something is cooked. In this case, I would hope my experience was not the norm, because the intended flavors were ruined, in my opinion. The platter cost $39, so not horribly expensive, but still not cheap. I enjoyed the waiter and his personality. He and the other wait staff did great. The atmosphere was fine, not too loud and enough space between tables. Just wish my food was not burnt. I am thinking this is not a common occurrence, as the restaurant was very busy after 6 pm. Just be ready to mention something to the wait staff if this happens to you, unlike what I did.

As a member of the Lettuce Entertainment group, Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is an upscale restaurant with incredible food, outstanding service and a new life-long customer! Our server, Denise, went out of her way to introduce my wife and I to Joe's as it was our first visit. Her description of the specials made it difficult to choose, but I made it through some how. We shared the crab cake appetizer, which was the absolute best crab cake I've ever eaten. I will not be able to have another crab cake unless it's at Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab! Even my wife, who doesn't like crab, thoroughly enjoyed it. The main courses were outstanding (boneless ribeye for her, Chilean seas bass for me), and sides of well-done hash browns (actually cooked well done!) and roasted corn (incredible flavor with a hint of cilantro and lime). Dinner was very filling, bus Denise treated us to Joe's signature key lime pie. Funny, we still had room to enjoy this incredibly tart, yet sweet, delight!\n\nJoe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is one of the best restaurants in Chicago! I can't wait to go back!

She loved the food/atmosphere and we enjoyed it also (as usual)..\nWhen I was a child, I lived in Miami and Joes was my family's 'neighborhood restaurant'.. Thanks for making our evening so memorable for all of us

I had a very mixed experience last night at Joe's Chicago. It was my birthday dinner with my husband and family so I was excited. I heard nothing but good things about Joe's. When we arrived the host was inexcusably rude. I understand not seating partial parties (4 out of 5 people had arrived) when the restaurant is full but when it's not it shouldn't be an issue. Also, I request a booth and you call me on the day to confirm, I should get that booth. Also, a good restaurant manager shouldn't tell you what time you'll be expected to leave, that's incredibly rude. Not only did the manager tell my mom we needed to be done eating by 8pm he tried to talk down to her. Who does that in the restaurant industry?! The only shining part of this experience was Denise T. our waitress. The food was good until I got food poisoning. I have been in and out of the bathroom all day. I will never tell anyone to eat here. My father has already cancelled future reservations. I want my money back seeing as how all of my food ended up in the toilet.

Almost decided to cancel, but, thank god we didn't. Being of Mediterranean descent. I decided to try the lamb chops. They were outta this world. I had them cooked medium +. Excellent cut, the perfect thickness and tenderness. My only mistake, I should have passed on the chimichurri sauce (at very least, get it on the side). With lamb chops that good, you don't need the sauce. I tried some of the large signature stone crab claws they have. They were great, but, after the lamb chops....everything else was just noise! Servers and other staff were helpful! Next time I'm in Chicago, I'll definitely be back!

Whenever I want to treat myself or my special guests Joe's is my place. I know a very few restaurants on par with Joe's as far as superior service and food quality/variety goes. Staff professionalism and attendance is top notch... I don't know how they do it, but they are there right when you need them, and you are alone to converse or eat when you don't. There is hardly any interruption until it's necessary (that's quite important to me).\n\nJoe's Stone Crab is always fresh and sweet, so is Alaskan King which is the thickest piece of Alaskan King you can find in Chicago. Steak is cooked to order and it's never over or under cooked. Price is also reasonable relative to the quality and service you will get. They also have an excellent variety of food; I bet you didn't know they serve fried chicken and it's really really really delicious. \n\nDon't be afraid to sit at the bar either as it is my preferred spot when I am with small company. Dan and Scott are great hosts; friendly, professional and quite good at pairing wine like the rest of the staff. Wine selection is pretty good and they are reasonably priced as long as you stick to the bottle!\n\nSo dine there with confidence... I luuuuuuuuv Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab. You will be back!

Quality overall is a cheap imitation of what it used to be. We've been going there since it first opened; nothing like what it was.

We were staying a few nights at the Marriott across the street and noticed the crowds going into this hot spot. We walked inside Joe's the first night to see what the fuss was all about, even if we could only get a cocktail. The bar counter only seats about 6 or 7 customers and all the bar tables were occupied, with many people still waiting for a seat, so we quickly decided to go somewhere else and try again the next day. Using 'Open Table' the on day two, to try to get a dinner time that worked for us was another loss. We finally decided to take the 4:30 dinner seating our last night in Chicago, since that was our only option other than 9:30. The place filled up fairly quickly and was bustling with energetic employees. The service was great and the staff was very knowledgeable. The food was absolutely fantastic. Hubby ordered the Caesar Salad and I stole a tiny bit of it because it looked so fresh and delicious. It was a lot larger than we expected. The Ahi Tuna Filet Mignon was seasoned and cooked to perfection as was the Filet Oscar my husband chose for his entree. The Brussels Sprouts side dish was probably my favorite. I am not sure what the seasoning was, but they were slightly sweet and oh, so good. We shared the Key Lime Pie even though we were both too stuffed for dessert. It was just as delicious as the rest of the meal. This will be a spot we return to when visiting Chicago in the future, but we now know to book before we go.

It was our last evening in Chicago & wanted a nice dinner. We had cancelled 2 other planned dinners due to time constraints & Joe's was a last-minute/Hail Mary reservation. As fate would have it, the selection was spot on!\n\nFrom the moment we were escorted to our table, we were impressed. If you are into 'old school' service, Joe's lives up to this: front house staff don crisp, tailored uniforms with demeanor & lingo that go along with that traditional vibe. Service is attentive & well-paced. Our server, Liz, was impeccable!\n\nFood selection was adequate (keep in mind this is the mid-West & as such, vegetarian options are not high on the list). Portions are HUGE which I found interesting as most higher-end places tend to have European/tasting menu-sized servings. \n\nAnother interesting observation is the noise level. Again, despite the 'formal' vibe, Joe's was not stodgy. The closer it gets to prime dinner time, the louder the place gets. \n\nOverall, it was a great cap to a wonderful vacay. We do plan a return visit

Our evening was fabulous from the moment we walked in to Joe's\nThe host, The staff dressed in tux, our friendly and informative waitress and the perfectly cooked and served food. The old Chicago pictures and decor added to the experience. Joe's is now my go to restaurant when visiting Chicago.

Everything was wonderful - service, food, drinks. You know the place is good when everyone cleans their plates, down to the last salad leaf!

Overall, we felt rushed by the wait staff. The busboy proceeded to take away our plate of stone crab before asking if we were finished. The waiter gave us the check while we were still working on desert. I expected better service from a place of this caliber and price point.

We were in Chicago for business and tried it due to TripAdvisor Reviews. It was absolutely amazing just as reviewed. We had a phenomenal knowledgeable waiter, Steph, who helped us navigate the menu to be able to try different items without over ordering as well as choosing the perfect wine. The stone crab claws were delicious and he tutored us on the etiquette of eating this delicacy. The pear endive salad was great as was the broccolini. However the miso glazed sea bass was a dish that I would come back to Chicago again just to eat that. The pumpkin chiffon pie paired with a cup of intelligentsia coffee was the perfect end to a heavenly meal. I told my daughter that she should definitely come and eat at this 5 star restaurant when visiting the city.

Great food and great service. I had the ahi tuna and my wife had the seafood platter. Everything was cooked perfectly and the flavours were amazing. The keylime pie is a must!!

Joe's is a great place. Expensive, but the food is excellent, as is the service. Get reservations well in advance, as they fill up quickly. My last visit was for lunch, which is easier to get in. Active, but not too noisy, so it was great for a business lunch.

It's a very busy place. If you're looking for a quiet night out this is not the place. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked but the star of the meal was the peanut butter pie.

Joe's is our favorite spot for a special occasion. The food is fabulous, the service can't be beat. It's a fine dining venue that manages to maintain a casual ambiance. My only complaint is that we're not the only ones who appreciate Joe's. It's necessary to book reservations well in advance (though the bar area is first-come, first-served).

Everything was AMAZING! The King crab legs, Miso Sea bass, and crab bisque were delicious. The filet was not the best I've had, but was also delicious. Don't miss the Key Lime Pies: it is probably the best Key Lime Pie I've tried ❤️
