My husband and I arrived at 6:30 on a Thursday evening in late October expecting a wait, but we were seated immediately! Our server Patrick explained our choices for the stone crabs and following his advice we ordered the large. They were delicious- fresh, perfectly chilled and cracked enough that our eating them required little effort. My husband had been... More

I stayed at Miami Beach for five days in June, 2014. My daughters adviced me this restaurant. I loved everything about it! Interior design is so beatiful, so Italian! I had to ask whether the owner was from Italy. I love sea food and thought that I have tried great tasting dishes. Crabs here were tastier than anything I have... More

over priced for an average product. You can get the same quality stones at publix. Sides were laughable- straight out of the frozen section.

We decided to arrive for dinner around 7 pm and were told that there was a 2 hour wait so we decided to go next door to the "take away" . The place is very busy but we found a table for 4 right away and received our order very quickly. Yes, it is pricey but worth it and we... More

Visiting from the UK we wanted to try something different so both had the Stone Crabs and shared a salad and hash browns. We also shared a bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc which was delicious with the crab. Finished with the Key Lime Pie. Every part of this meal was excellent and we will probably have exactly the same when... More

This is a tough place to review because the stone crab and food was great, but the overall experience and service was absolutely horrible. I was excited to go here and did my research and understood it was going to be a long wait, but we were OK with it. So we didn't sweat it when we arrived around seven... More

This place is cruising on its reputation. The food remains to be good but not necessarily outstanding. The atmosphere is cafeteria like. Loud and many tables jammed into the restaurant. The server was clearly focused on moving us through the process and less on our dining experience. I will probably not return to this well known establishment.

I went to Joe's Take Away(instead of the main restaurant) because I was short on time, but wanted to experience their famous stone crabs. I was expecting this to be a dive, like what most take out places are like, but the place turned out to be very nice in terms of cleanliness, decor and service. There is a large... More

This is a luxurious restaurant in the center of South Beach, popular with wealthy people. it is huge, but it is cleverly divided in smaller rooms so it looks smaller. The personnel and the service are perfect and the food is excellent, especially the stone crab claws, the specialty of the restaurant. I have been surprised by the variety and... More
