Featuring prime bone-in steaks, an extensive selection of jet-fresh seafood and delicious Florida Stone Crabs, Joe's quickly became one of the most popular dining spots in Chicago. 2004 marked the opening of Joe's in Las Vegas, at the Forum Shops at Caesars, continuing the legacy that began in Miami Beach almost a century ago.

Really good place for fish any day of the week, however rather expensive. Bar area is small, but very good service.

Service and atmosphere was good. Food and drinks were mediocre. Will pass up this place the next time I'm in Chicago. Makes me wish I were back in New York City.

I'm giving this place 4 stars for two things, the stone crabs and the ribeye. Went there a few nights in row to take customers to and tried a few dishes. The simple things they are known for are very good. The rest is so-so IMHO. It is family style and a bit noisy so best for customers that you know well if it's for business. Otherwise it's great for friends and hanging out. They do have a pretty solid wine list. Make a res as it can be difficult to get into last minute.

A Chicago staple. Stone Crab claws and scallops are a must. But to my surprise, the Dry Aged Ribeye steak is top notch. It is fantastic. Reservations are recommended, but sometimes you can wait and get a seat in the bar area, which can get crowded, but you get to enjoy the awesome food without a reservation!

Being a girl who lived on the beach in Miami, I will always prefer Joe's down there, but it is a great place to get a bite during the holidays - cozy and the food is always good. Like most places in Chicago, get reservations instead of just dropping in. The key lime pie is my ultimate favorite dish here!
Easy to get to: valet available, parking is extremely expensive in this area. Most bus stops off Michigan Ave stop within a couple blocks from the restaurant. Or you can opt for the Grand redline stop.

Joe's Seafood Steak and Stone Crab solely exists so you can experience a fine dining experience with top of the line food. Their whole menu is exquisite off the wall so good, it will explode your taste buds and your wallet. This is ultimate AMERICAN dining at a price. Fresh stone crab is also unreal. If you have the dollars... make a visit to Joes and you want regret your meal.

Located in the heart of River North, Joe's is the place to come for top notch service and the best crab claws ever!

You just have to have the creamed spinach! (Best steak in the house is the bone-in ribeye)

Sister restaurant to the famous Joe's Stone Crab in Miami, this is an institution in Chicago. The decor is classic steakhouse with white linens, handsome dark wood and plush leather booths.

There's a filet mignon and a stone crab lunch special that includes soup, potatoes, cole slaw and key lime pie. The meaty stone crab claws are served cold and are pre-cracked for your convenience.

Great spot for power lunches and business meetings.

I was here for a company dinner, and this place was excellent. I had the king crab legs with scallop. Awesome. I also tried food from my coworker's plates and it was very good. The service outstanding and the ambience is real cool. I will come again if in the area!

The restaurant was good, but it was on the pricey side. I didn't leave there terribly impressed. As a matter of fact, I don't even remember what I ate.
