If you like Stone Crabs, this is the place to do it! Usually a long wait but who cares, go have yourself a drink at the bar. Key lime martinis are yum! Lots of wine and liquors to choose from so pick your poison. Also their Lobster Mac and Cheese is BOMB! You go for the stone crab claws so... More

The bar at Joe's is an oasis from the heavy air outside on the street. Try a classic cocktail - maybe a Manhattan. Relax, you are safe here. Take a peek at the bar menu and try an appetizer with your second drink. They opened a hundred years ago and they do not accept reservations. Bar opens at 5:30.

Such a gorgeous restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Our waiter Thomas was lovely and couldn't do enough! Brisk tuck meal - the food was delicious. The only thing I would say is I ordered 'fish and chips' which, being from England is a person favourite, but what I aurally got was fish and crisps - very confusing language barrier!!

What else could be said about Joe's we traveled extensively and when you talk about Miami you say Joe's most people know what you're talking about I go to their cafeteria once a week when they are open and honestly I could eat here everyday, I would say there's only a handful of places in the world that I could...

Went for dinner with friends. Our server seemed like he was doing us a favor waiting on us. The stone crabs were not good we knew they where frozen but we expected better. My husband ordered crab cake and it was also terrible should have returned it. Waste of money

Joe's is a Miami institution and if you visit one restaurant in South Florida, this is it. Stone crabs are the best, but everything else on the menu is excellent. You must order the $6 fried chicken as a side dish and don't forget the chopped salad, sweet potato fries and key lime pie for dessert. Go!

If you want to experience an authentic Art Deco South Beach feel then you need to check out Joe's stone crab. The ambiance is fabulous the food is phenomenal and the bar makes the best dirty martinis you can get in South Beach. It is pricey however and you need to pack a lot of patience because there's always a... More
