Had an early evening reservation to celebrate a special event. Table was ready on time, and the free coat-check was appreciated on the chilly Chicago night. Our waiter was great. But, otherwise our experience was just okay. My food (a seafood special that night) came out cold and was nothing special. For the price and the reputation, I expected so... More

This was my second time eating at the Chicago Joe's. This location is more 'lively' than the Washington DC restaurant, but we found it very enjoyable. Service is excellent, as is the food. I had fish and my husband had a steak. Sides of mac n cheese and green beans were wonderful. Pies were great too - especially the coconut... More

I went for dinner with 7 friends. The food and service were excellent! We had the "Whale" (like a tower of different seafoods) and the ribeye steaks were melt in your mouth. The but is...it is a very noisy place and poorly lit. Could barely read the menu.

We had a business dinner there last night . The apps were spectacular along with the octopus salad. We had 3 different kinds of oysters fantastic. The stone crab were also on the table. The mustard dip was Devine. I had scallops-perfect size. The petit filet was done to perfection, the Dover sole melted in your mouth and the sea... More

Like so many famous Chicago places, this restaurant was a bit of a let-down. Nothing wrong with it but not memorable. Also noisy - too many hard, reflective surfaces..

This is "do not miss" while in Chicago. Great food, great service. Fantastic crabs and oysters. I's on the expensive side, but worth every single penny.

We went there as a group of four for my boyfriend's 30th. I booked a table for 8:30 on a Saturday night, but had to stand around in an over-crowded room (bar?) for 35 minutes while our table was prepared. There were crowds of people between the bar tables - very uncomfortable. This was one of the things we didn't... More

We wondered into the restaurant without a reservation hoping they could squeeze us in and they couldn't have been nicer; even with the restaurant being packed with people there for Christmas lunches. We were able to eat at the counter that over looked the street. The food was delicious and I would go back again just to eat the salad... More

We were in a group, ushered to a spacious back room through a large Saturday night crowd to a nice cocktail hour and dinner. Tasty salads, peppermint ice cream with chocolate sauce-what's not to like?

Absolutely wonderful!! Had the Stone Crabs and steak. Both were delicious. Had lobster bisque to begin with. Always great. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Chicago
