I think the season is October to April.

Alas, stone crab season does not officially start until Joe's reopens in mid-October. Meanwhile - they're serving Alaskan Crab and soft shells all summer long.

Stone Crabs are around $30 an order. For that price, if you choose to try and eat them out of season - you will be served frozen and thawed critters. Defintely not worth it!

Learn more at :


Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant is open as of May 19th for the Summer Season through July 30th. Joe's Stone Crab Take Away will be closed until mid October.

Stone crab is one of my favourties but I usually eat it in Key West at a fraction of the price mentioned here but even there I don't think you will get it fresh in August.
