Yup I am talking about Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab. I had know idea that this was a chain albeit a small one. My girlfriend and I had dinner there last Wednesday evening.
The restaurant was crowded so I suppose the word is already out about this place. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. He walked us through everything. The atmosphere or interior of the restaurant was nice. It was louder than I expected. There were some children there which surprised me.
I got the swordfish and she got the scallops. Everything is a la carte and for our side dish we shared the sweet fries (sweet potato fries). Everything was good. My fish was prepared just right and had a lemon flavored sauce on it. The fries were a huge portion and prepared excellently.
The overall experience was good except the noise level was a little high, but some places are just very popular and busy. I will plan on trying Joe's again when I return to Chicago.
P.S. The lounge/bar area just inside the entrance was very cool looking and relaxing. It could be fun just to stop by and have drinks when you are downtown Chicago.
