Go for the Claws

Enjoyed some large claws before the place closed for the season. The red chowder was outstanding. The lobster tail was a hit at the table too. Not just a regular crab joint.....this place is special.

Huge place, and it needs to be, to service the crowds demanding their food. It's that good. Not just the stone crab - the cioppino, the salads, it's all excellent. And the servers are allstars - just go. If there is a wait have a cocktail outside

This is one of our favorite places in Miami or anywhere else. The stone crabs and key lime pie are incredible. The salt sticks are a great starter. We go early to avoid the crowds. The meal is expensive 100 per person, but very worth it.

If you love stone crabs, you will not find better stone crabs elsewhere. However be ready to wait a long time or you have the option of takeout. Also very pricey, I only treat myself once a year!

If you are visiting Miami, this place is a must go. They have the best stone crabs. People come from all over the world come to try out this place. They are known for their fresh seafood and stone crabs. I have had their lobsters and that was good too. The wait could be long at times but you can... More

It's a likeable "factory". If you have such a reputation, you get every day a full house with lots of seatings. I have almost never seen that many waiters in a restaurant. Therefore, the service is very quick and professional. Food is good but not excellent. There is a very busy atmosphere surrounded by a wooden decor which is average.... More

Told by frequent visitors to go here, they were right! It is a big restaurant, there will be a wait but there is a nice bar and areas to sit and relax and wait. Try the Sampler, it is the best way to understand their cuisine. Great service, good value, unique place.

Iconic miami institution. Everyone who visits feels that this is a must. But, really it isn't. The food is good, service is good, but certainly not to die for. Always crowded with long wait times, unless you schmear the host $20.00. Living in the neighborhood, I can tell you there are much better and memorable choices.

Great dinner. Get there early cuz it fills up quick. Amazing service and amazing food. Cannot wait to go back! Stone Crab season runs October to May, so there aren't fresh ones available in the summer I am told....but they are worth getting down here for in the fall and spring!! So good.
