We were told that we could not miss it by few friends, and definitely was a very good experience. Great food, service was 5 star. Well done Joe's Stone Crab. Just a good tip!! They don't accept reservations, you have to wait when you arrive.

No chance to have dinner there if you do not wish to wait at least for an hour.. Too much success probably but very inconvenient.

My wife and I had a lovely evening here in late September. Food was very fresh and tasty. Service was good and cocktails were strong! Would come again.

Joe stone crab was everything we heard it was! Amazing food, the absolutely best service to the T, and a ambiance that was to die for! They do not take reservations, the wait was a while but the people and the bar were awesome and it went fast. The stone crabs were incredible, so good and filling! Our 8 year... More

We love Joe's and always look forward to stone crab season (October thru May). If you like seafood, specially stone crabs then Joe's is a must visit when you come to South Florida! The stone crabs are out of this world, sweet and flavorful, they come totally cracked so you can eat them without much hassle. The service is excellent... More

Just got back from my first dinner of the season, the 103rd season! This place rocks on so many levels it's hard to describe. Whether you're outside on the patio or inside at the bar or in one of the dining rooms you're sure to enjoy what Joes brings to the table. Stoners were succulent Scallops too and the fried... More

The food at Joe's is good and if you get the stone crabs or Alaskan crabs, you can pretty much predict how it will taste as they have been preparing these for years and years. They have service down pat at Joe's so no worries there. The place is a little pricey as I am pretty sure it has become... More

Wish I could give this place a negative number. Arrived at 610 pm. Was told the wait was 1-1.5 hours. 2 hours later, we were still waiting. Very much a who you know and who you blow kind of place. Some waited forever. Others just minutes. And the place is too self important to take reservations. Save your time and... More

Came to Miami for a business trip and wanted to get some seafood. Heard about this restaurant after seeing it on Man vs Food. On arrival you leave your name with the Maitre'd and although we had a 2 hour wait (which we had been advised) it was well worth the wait. The crabs were the tastiest I have ever... More

As expected for a 6:30 arrival, we had an hour wait for a table so we sauntered into the bar, ordered a couple drinks and waited for a place at the bar to sit (about 10 min). It's a nice bar and the bartenders were all personable enough considering how busy they were. We got to our table and started... More
