Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's also features signature Prime steaks, hand-carved by master butchers, such as the 24 oz. Bone-In Rib Eye or Bone-in Filet Mignon. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie. Enjoy a cocktail in the bustling lounge or the tuxedo-clad service of the dining room.

Joe's is the Best! As always, everything was outstanding. Summer watermelon (red and yellow), feta, and onion salad was light and refreshing, with great taste. Madagascar Shrimp were enormous and great tasting. Entrees were even better. And excellent service.

Joes is a beautifully redone bank building with all of the grace and class of days past. The food is very good but the best part is the extremely professional and warm staff. From the time a guest opens the door to departure, all staff is efficient, very warm, and welcoming . This is really a symbol of Washington’s best in hospitality.

What a great evening. The waiter was very knowledgeable and his recommendations were spot on. He recommended the key lime pie for desert. My wife is a professional key lime pie baker.She gave it 4 stars.
When we were leaving I spoke with the manager about the waiter and how we were very pleased with the food the delivery and the presentation.
We will be back.

Great food and service! Joe’s never disappoints. Grilled seafood platter is phenomenal. And their key lime pie is the best in town.

For our anniversary, Warren took the time to explain the various entree options, and even told us stories about the restaurant and building origin. He was really informative, friendly and thoughtful. Definitely made our anniversary dinner that much more special.

This restaurant was above my expectations. From the entrance and being greeted by the host to the waiter being exceptionally knowledgeable of the menu was readily available to assist. The food was delicious, seasoned well and affordable. I really enjoyed.

We had a family dinner at Joe's Seafood in D.C. and really enjoyed all foods we ordered! The waitress lady was super kind and she took care of us very nicely. It was the first time to visit there and we will defiantly visit the restaurant again.

My husband and I went here for a date this past weekend. We really enjoyed the service and the food. My husband ordered the colossal crab cakes and we didn’t feel that they were worth the money are colossal, but he enjoyed them. They didn’t come with sides and we both had to order sides with the meal. He was done with them in about 4 bites. I ordered the broiled platter and it was delicious. We e joyed it and would definitely go back.

You’ve probably heard from me before...I love Joes! Tonight was even better than usual as the company was exceptional. You made my daughters birthday even more special than it already was! We got greedy and came back for lunch the next day as well xxx

One of the best restaurants for celebrating a very special occasion! Service is terrific and prompt; food is so awesomely delicious; and, the maître'd allowed us to be seated early. Really love this place -- and the family really enjoyed the crabs -- both stone and Alaskan King!

The whale was good, the crab bisque was good, the oysters were good, and the dessert pie was good. We ordered the large stone crab claws and they were very inconsistent. 3/5 of our stone claw’s meat was stringy and stuck to the shell. Especially for the high price for these crab claws, I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone.

Food was great for most of us. Service was incredible. However, I thought my stone crabs were a bit dry making them seem like they were on their last used by date waiting for a new shipment. Still.good but not great. All other food was exceptional as usual.

Liked the atmosphere. Server was a bit aggressive, not a huge problem. Kind of surprised they charged for valet, as most of their high end competition doesn't. No additional attention for the birthday celebration, as all their high end competition bends over backwards. This restaurant seems a more after work in the city, dinner before the bars, type of establishment. Probably wouldn't recommend for special occasions.
