We very much enjoyed our dinner at Joe's stone crab. We didn't had a reservation, but since we where fairly early we got a table immediately. 15 minutes later, the place was packed and people had to wait a long time. While it was out of season there was still some stone crab on the menu for us to enjoy.... More

There is no other place to go for stone crab! Exceptional service always and great atmosphere! You do need to go early if you don't want to wait or you can use their take out. I've been going here for years - my favs (other than the obvious stone crab) is the homemade slaw and the key lime pie. Part... More

The place is victim of its success. It is always crowded. The atmosphere is nice. A combination of smart, elegant and homey. The food is excellent, not only the crab. If you take the crab then don't take any starters.

We were a large group and I get that the restaurant does not take bookings, but neither do strollers or are kids friendly! This was made very clear by the gentlemen at the hostess stand. I love dinning out and your food is amazing, but the two families ahead of us and the one behind us had exactly the same... More

Never had stone crab, nor thought much about it. Previous miami resident suggested this restaurant. It was superb, and it has been there over 100 years with plenty of history. Everything was perfect, even the key lime pie, which I don't normally like. Hard to beat such a combination of excellent sea food (which they fish from the Keys) and... More

This is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants! I have been to the Las Vegas location a number of times as I used to travel to Vegas for work a couple times a year. Their stone crab bisque has ruined me for any other bisque or chowder. I used to love lobster bisque, but this soup beats lobster bisque by... More

Everything was amazing. Must try the ceviche and stone crab. The wine list was good and so was the fish we all had (three different types)

This place had been highly recommended, so we went along. Was good fun and loads of food. Servers were friendly and helped with the menu. Cost more than had hoped and had far too much crab left over which was a shame but we enjoyed ourselves and would recommend.

Thank MichaelFJ
