Expensive, snotty and nothing special. Ordered th large portion of stone crabs along with hash brown potatoes. The crab was tasteless, served cold, with hot butter- I thought quite strange! Ordered the key lime pie (also tasteless,) and a cup of coffee. The bill was over $100.- WHAT A RIPOFF for NOTHING! Alaskan king crab has it over these local... More

We were given the recommendation from several friends that Joe's was the place to go for the best Stone Crabs. We went early evening knowing you could not reserve. We waited only about half an hour to be seated at our table, which was fine as we had pleasant cocktails on the patio. The service from start to finish is... More

I have been to Joes many times and I keep going back. Joes is the place for stone crabs and everything else seafood. If you get there by 5pm for an early dinner or late lunch that's the best combination for getting seated and served quickly. If you have never been the prices are not for the faint hearted or...

We ate at the bar and the service was basic, but the food was fantastic and a bit cheaper than the restaurant. The crab was some of the best I'd had.

Restaurant closes in the afternoon but the takeout is now three times the size with tables and a bar. So easy, so fast and not a ton of people. Thoroughly enjoyed the salad, stone crabs, sweet potato fries. Big yum. Great service at the bar.

Definitely a great place to eat while in Miami Beach. There was a pretty long wait for a table, but it was well worth it. The stone crab and key lime pie were amazing! The host and our server was a bit stand-offish. They were never mean, but definitely never went out of their way to be nice. But, that... More
