always great food and perfect attention to detail to get the order correct.

This was an awful dining experience. The only good thing about it was they have the most tasty scallops and spinach! Valet was rude, Our waiter took 20 mins to come to the table...

Editorial review from GrubHub 12/25/2013

The apple pie was FABULOUS!! Not too sweet, just tart enough - beautifully done. I would gladly pay the price for it again. However, I ordered crab cakes for lunch. I did not read the menu carefully enough and simply assumed that a $15 lunch would be cake"s". I was wrong. It was a single small crab cake for $15 and while it did not have a lot of filler, it was not the best I've ever had and I did not think it was worth $15. I would happily, gladly purchase the apple pie again, but with the overpriced crab cake and high delivery charge, I probably won't order from them again. If you do - get the apple pie! more

The petite filet was delicious. I ordered medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. GrubHub delivered the order faster than anticipated. Great experience. more

Best stone crabs in Chicago 11/10/2010

Freshest seafood around. Great sides. Key lime pie to die for! Fantastic fried chicken. Atmosphere a bit loud, but that is Joe's. Not exactly a romantic place, but a great place to go with a crowd. more

Our New Family Celebration Spot! 3/30/2010

So my wife and I have eaten at the best of the best steak houses nationwide and still always agree Joe's in Chicago is where it's at. Now so you know I have eaten at other Joe's and none of them even compare to the quality of food Joe's Chicago offers. My personal recommendations would be the Chicago Stable, Bone In Rib-Eye, The Scallops, and of course the KING CRAB!!!! If you are visiting Chicago or just never made it to Joe's change your dinner reservations and make them at Joe's ASAP. --> This place is not easy to get into. Make reservations at least a week out! Pros: The Food and Service is just AMAZING!!! Cons: Valet service is so RUDE!!! Lost you a star, FYI! more

AWUL service great seafood 10/19/2009

This was an awful dining experience. The only good thing about it was they have the most tasty scallops and spinach! Valet was rude, Our waiter took 20 mins to come to the table to even take drink orders, some of the food came over burnt, the waiter was unwilling to accomodate our meal requests, etc an all around awful dining experience. We spoke to the manager, and he only offered free dessert, which we didn't want, and he took off one of the burnt dishes, and AWFUL mac & cheese from the bill. After the mgr wasn't apologetic for the awful service we'd had (it took 45 mins to even get our order in) we were left with having to dock the tip with a note as to why. We will NEVER be back here. Pros: the scallops are to die for! Cons: the service is AWFUL more

Great service, great food 7/6/2009

My boyfriend and I ate here over the holiday weekend and even though the prices were a little high, the food was amazing!! The waiter we had doted on us all night long and even though it was pretty crowded we didn't feel like we got lost in the crowd, as you do with some other restaurants. Cons: price more

food was just ok, overpriced 5/18/2009

The food at Joe's was just ok, and definitely not worth the steep price tag. I went with my friend and we started with the shrimp and scallop ceviche. It was decent, although the fish didn't seem super fresh. For entree, I had a 12 oz fillet, my friend had the stone crab. The steak was cooked well, but not well seasoned, and overall pretty boring. It arrive by itself on the plate, looking very lonely with only a piece of curly leaf parsley to keep it company. The stone crab did not taste fresh. The potatoes weren't bad. The best part of meal was dessert, we shared banana cream pie, which was actually pretty good. But overall, this meal was not worth the $100 price tag. Pros: service Cons: food more

Totally disappointed 2/26/2009

Despite all the good reviews and the poasitive feedback. And although its a cute atmosphere... the food just didn't cut it. My dish was just okay.. and it left me still starving for food. Weird, right? Anyway, not going back. I shouldn't be hungry when leaving a restaurant more

Quite possibly the worst dining experience I've ever had 1/3/2009

I've heard all the raves about Joe's, and decided to try it out when my parents came into town. First off, we were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time. It only went downhill from there. The waiter was extremely condescending, and kept touching us - it was really awkward. We ordered the 'famous' stone crab appetizer - and it was beyond disappointing. I've had my fair share of stone crab, and it is not supposed to turn into a frayed mess when you open the claw. Pros: Good reputation Cons: Food was beyond disappointing, service carried an 'attitude' more

Joe's Is Possibly The Best Restaurant In The City! [con'd] 12/27/2008

We ordered the stone crab appetizers (4 medium claws) and a caesar salad for sharing. Stone crabs have a amazing fresh and sweet taste that is wonderful, yet somewhat different than King or Snow crabs. We also, upon recommendation, ordered a wonderful glass of white wine to compliment our meals.After devouring the snow crabs, out came our entrees. Ooops, what about the caesar salad? Frankie promptly apologized and since our entrees had already arrived we were informed that dessert was on the house. Professional, seamless service. My wife raved about her teriyaki chicken. The chicken was moist, perfectly roasted chicken with just the right amount of from-scratch teriyaki sauce drizzled on the chicken at your table. I did try a bite and it was quite tasty. Fall off the bone tender, so moist and so good. The Alaskan King Crab Legs were massive and presented at the table (cracked for your convenience) before being served. Frankie had recommended that I request chilled rather than warm and he was correct. Chilled is the only way to go from now on. This Alaskan King Crab AMAZING. Large, succulent pieces of sweet chilled king crab meat served with a half lemon, drawn butter and house mustard on the side. But again, these bad boys need nothing as it would take away a piece of heaven from your tastebuds. These have to be the best crab legs in the city! The complimentary desserts were delicious. I would bet you will not find a piece of Key Lime Pie better than what is served at Joe's. The graham crust was perfect, the fresh keylime filling was heavenly. Sweet, with just a hint of tang, and so light and creamy. An explosion of flavor. My wife had a delicious chocolate brownie a la mode with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Although very good, we both are hooked and now swear by Joe's Key Lime Pie. Joe's - Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Oh, and ask for Frankie as your personal guide through the experience called Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crabs. Pros: Atmosphere, Service, Food...Everything! You will not be disappointed! more

Always great food. Stick with fish, veggies, steak. The turkey burger was dry, not to my liking more

Editorial review from GrubHub 11/10/2008

The best steak and seafood combo restaurant in the city. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 11/9/2008

Joe's is consistently great for their seafood selections. It is hard to keep their products piping hot for arrival, but it is still delicious. more

Crab bisque was very good but overall I did not feel this restaurant was a five as othes have. 9/2/2008

We just had the ""2nd mortgage"" cold seafood appetizer and the crab bisque. The soup was very good. The appetizer was ok but I did not think it was that great. I'd heard a lot about the mustard sauce and it was ok but not spectacular. I would definitely recommend reservations as there was a minimum hour wait. more

Best Overall 7/25/2008

My wife and I visited Joe's recently. I had stone crab bisque, large stone crab and the banana dessert. My wife had select stone crab, coffee and key lime pie. Pros: everything Cons: maybe wait with no reservations more

Editorial review from GrubHub 6/20/2008

Great lamb chops, excellent flavor. more

THE BEST FRIED LOBSTER 4/28/2008

I went to Joes while in Chicago for a concert. I had the fried lobster and asparagus it was so great I want to fly back just to get some more I've had it other places but theirs was so great its worth a try I dont remeber what my friends had but it was good we all give it 5 stars the bill was around 140 for 3 people and only 1 alcohol drink and the others were pops so if you plan on drinking the price goes up but its worth a try if you love seafood. And the staff was so pleasing the waiter even helped me cut my food . I will probaly go to the one in Miami next. more
