We went to Joe’s with an extremely large group. We had some drinks at the bar and each of us was charge a gratuity of 18% on our tab. After our bar drinks, we received no service from the waitress on beverages.
We ordered all of the sides, soups and salads on the menu and especially lots of snow crab. We heard great things about the restaurant and unfortunately our experience did not match other’s experiences. The snow crab was significantly smaller than Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, where we ate the previous night. We recommend Del Frisco. The snow crab seemed to have been frozen for a very long time; it was fishy, grainy, and not well cooked. The frozen taste was strong throughout our entire order of crabs. It was so far from fresh and tasted terrible. Even the horseradish sauce could not hide the low quality taste.
The artichoke and crab dip appetizer was excellent.
The Manhattan chowder soup was tomato based, salty, and TONS of DIRT grains. It was difficult to consume with every taste full of grains. This was the worst soup on the menu. The crab bisque was great.
The plain potato hash browns were good. They are boiled potatoes that are placed in a baking dish and toasted on the top. Not great but good. The Lyonnaise however, was not pleasant. It was overfilled with caramelized onions, which were so overpowering you could not taste the potato.
The cole slaw had an interesting unique tangy taste. The texture of the cole slaw seemed prepackaged, over shredded, soggy consistency, and poor preparation. Again, the taste was very unique. Our group ate the least of this item. The corn was not sweet; it had several bell peppers and way too much seasoning. The spinach had too much cream. The other sides were all very standard.
The key lime pie had a nice strong, sour, and thick creamy filling. The gram cracker crust was over sugared and too thick.
Worst of all, after such a disappointing dinner, our waitress made the mistake of charging our group the entire tab multiple times. Several of us were charged the entire bill. We brought this to the manager’s attention and he had no idea as to how to handle the situation. We had to break it down to the waitress and explain to her the billing error. She had a difficult time understanding how to correct and reverse the charges. We’re still waiting on verification from our banks of the reversals, since the restaurant clearly cannot be relied on.
Overall we would not recommend this restaurant. Perhaps, at one time the Vegas location was of comparable quality to their other chains, but unfortunately this is no longer true.
Great Food, Great Service, Great Times. I love everything about Joe's. my family and I discovered it about 2 years ago. Now everythime we go to vegas (at least 6 times a year) we cant leave without eating there. Everything is great! You have to try to the stone crab legs! The crab cakes are phenomenal and the bacon wrapped scallops are delish. The restaurant does seem a little lavish and a little pricey, but worth every penny. The service and staff are great and I recommend everyone in Vegas to try it. No dress code necessary, I have dinned there dressed business casual and also in shorts and flip flops... and the service is grat either way. Hint: order the stone crab lunch special as an appetizer, you get enough food for four and its a sampler of the stone crab legs.
Great experiences!!!. My husband and I love to eat at Joe's when we go to Vegas. The first Joe's we ate at was in Chicago and it was so great that when we saw the Joe's in Vegas we had to try it again. The food is great and the sevice is always prompt. We have never had a bad experience. The bone-in filet is to die for and I love the stone crab. Try the second mortgage appetizer!! YUMMY!!
Like a fake Rolex.
Been to the REAL Joe's in M. Beach many times. This place is like a fake Rolex. The food is good, but the rest of the place is a sad attempt at trying to have the magic that the original Joe's has.
Remember Star Trek? The food that came out of the replicator machine? All the crew members would complain that the food tasted fake. Joe's in Vegas is the opposite. The food is fine, but everything else, even down to the waiters phony stories are replicated. I gave my waitress a nice tip and told her how I felt. She bent down to my ear and told me "This is the most BORING place I have ever worked"
I can't imagine working there. I was bored after being there for 20 minutes!!!
Save your $$$. Go somewhere that's real and not an imitation.
A swanky steakhouse that brings back the feel of Vegas' yesteryears..
Unlike the modern-day formula for family style chain steakhouses with lots of gimmicks and kitsch, Joe's focuses its attention on quality cuts, fresh fish and an ultra sleek attitude that would do the Rat Pack proud. It's located on the ground level of Caesar's Palace in the Forum Shops and features rich mahogany decor, leather booths and a grand full-service bar.
