Luckily – I had success with Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab – um long name anyone? Luckily the website is nice and simple – Joes.net. 88% approval, we could walk there and they had an opening – SOLD!
It definitely looks like an iconic spot – on a large corner with a huge photo – we were looking forward to heading in and relaxing with some adult beverages and excellent seafood!
First up a bread basket – I wasn’t using my belly space on bread – but it did look good! I did have a margarita before dinner too – it was really good!
The guys wanted Calamari ($13.95) – so we got calamari. I’m not much of a fan – really it’s the tentacles that I can’t stand. The rings are fine – but never really seem that amazing. That said – I tried the rings and they were good.
It is one of the “sides are separate” – so I ordered some 4-cheese Mac & Cheese ($9.95) for the table and it did not disappoint. This was probably the best restaurant mac & cheese I have ever had. It was creamy and cheesy and the pasta still had a bite to it. We polished off this bowl – no question!
Why Should You Go? We had a delightful meal. We were all torn between steak and seafood but in Ohio – we have a lot of good steak – so we really went for the seafood and it did not disappoint. I’m a big fan of crab and it’s even in the name – but when I asked the server if I should get stone crab or the halibut – he didn’t even bat an eye with his halibut reco. If any seafood lover was heading to Chicago – I’d highly recommend Joe’s!
