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!

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

Wonderful experience that I recommend to all seafood lovers. We went there a Thursday in July, there was no line to be seated. The restaurant is elegant and the service exceptional. Our waiter Thomas was awesome, guided us in our choices. We preferred the Alaskan crab claws rather than the stone crab. Wine list is nice and affordable!

Great service, Great food and interesting background history. A must see when visiting Miami Beach. They are a seasonal restaurant however and close when stone crab season ends.

My wife and I were there, as newly weds to celebrate her 30th birthday. While we were there before dinner time and could not stay for dinner due to sunset catamaran plans, they accommodated us in the bar area with ease and even valet parked our car. With crowded parking in South Beach, this was a nice and welcome touch.... More

Had many of the appetizers while seated at the bar. Pretty crowded but had an enjoyable time. Food was good, drinks were smooth, all in all a great place in an active environment.
