Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab

Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab

With the surf chops to match the finest steak cuts, Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is a favorite in the Chicago steakhouse scene. This Miami import has been a staple in the River North neighborhood since 2000. The dining room evokes a seaside vibe with high ceilings and white tile framed in dark wood, then leads into more intimate seating areas that reflect a more Chicago-feel. Crisp tablecloths and tuxedoed servers create an ambiance of sophistication, and that care in appearance follows through to their menu. A steak dinner should always kick off with a cocktail, and Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab has a collection of signature cocktails to quench your thirst. Familiar classics like the mojito, old fashioned, and Moscow mule are faithfully prepared, alongside concoctions like the boozy Boulevardier and the Clevelander, a bright beverage made of gin, Aperol, orange bitters, and lemon. The white sangria is a refreshing and fruit-forward option, with lychee, strawberry, and lime accenting a mix of sauvignon blanc, St. Germain, and prosecco. Seafood dominates the appetizers at Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab, so start your meal with a little bit of surf before hitting the turf for the main course. Charred octopus, prepared with corona beans and Kalamata olives, is an elegant way to begin the meal. Shrimp shines in a number of dishes, including a classic shrimp cocktail and the Chicago favorite shrimp DeJonghe. Oysters can be ordered on the half shell, Rockefeller style, or fried. If you have a big party (or if your appreciation for seafood simply knows no bounds), order the Whale. This epic seafood platter comes with Alaskan king crab, lobster tail, jumbo shrimp cocktail, and shrimp and scallop ceviche.
