“Go for the freshest stone crab in the area and be plesantly surprised by the key lime pie!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Joe's Stone Crab is at the top of best crab and lobster restaurants. We were looking for king crab but decided to go for the regional specialty - stone crab. Cooked and then refridgerated, the dish is served cold and the kitchen cracks the claws for you making them easy to enjoy. Sides are a la carte - we ordered the lyonnaise potatoes and fried green tomatoes...skip the potatoes, nothing special there. Everything else was pretty great. If you enjoy lobster, don't hesitate to order the warm water lobster tail broiled. They know how to cook this often mushy textured creature to perfection, it was excellent considering it was warm water. Key lime pie was very good. Expensive if you order alcohol and it's somewhat pretentious and trendy.

“A classic in Miami!!!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

We went with some local friends for dinner, and this was undoubtedly a wonderful meal. They have the best stone crab, fresh, tasteful, by far the best crab we have ever eaten. The sweet potato fries were delicious, but the traditional key lime pie was to die for. The service was excellent.

“Best crab ever”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We went to this restaurant several times around lunch time and it is by far the best crab that I have ever eaten. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great as it makes you feel like as if you travelled into the past. The waiters are perfectly groomed in their uniform and wear bow ties. The food arrives quite quickly at the table and service is efficient but discreet. I really recommend this place to people who love crab.

“JUMBO CRABS”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

If one choose to go and taste the STUNNING JUMBO CRABS of Joe, do it on Sunday, either lunch or dinner: you will wait less than one hour (vs > than 2 hours on Saturday)
