Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab
This iconic dining destination dates back to 1913 in Miami, but feels right at home on the Las Vegas Strip. Joe's is a classic American steakhouse with numerous dining rooms and an indoor "patio" in view of shoppers making the rounds inside the Forum Shops at Caesars. The restaurant has a loaded menu, but manages to do a lot of things exceptionally well. The 16-ounce bone-in filet has a deep, rewarding flavor for anyone looking for a lean cut, while a grilled seafood platter offers lobster, scallops and shrimp on the same plate.
However, the best reason to visit Joe's (as the name suggests) is the signature stone crabs, which are traditionally in season between October and May. Flown in from the Gulf of Mexico, the little guys carry ample meat. Crack 'em open at the table for dipping in a house-made mustard sauce or mix them up with your steak for the ultimate surf n' turf. It's worth pointing out that Joe's also has a killer crab cake and is one of the few restaurants in Vegas serving Manhattan-style clam chowder, also known as "the red kind."
