“A Miami fixture, and worth it!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

I recently moved to Miami, and was looking for a place to have dinner on Christmas Eve. Joe's Stone Crab was one of the only places open, so I decided to give it a try. Since they don't accept reservations and I don't like waiting, I decided to go early (5PM). We were seated right away (party of 2), which was great. We had the conch fritters for an appetizer, and they were good. I had the Cioppino for dinner which was AMAZING (spicy, but I love spicy). My husband had the red snapper which was also incredibly fresh and delicious. If you do not drink and skip the appetizer, it is possible to eat here without racking up a very large bill. Although it can be considered a pricier restaurant, I felt what we ate was worth it considering the taste and freshness.

“$$ but gooood”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Joe's Stone Crab is a classic in Miami Beach for a reason--the stone crabs--succulent morsels of goodness along with all the trimmings, including great key lime pie. Shoot the lock off your wallet and head there for a feast at lunch time and you won't go broke so much. BUT do go!

“Good food!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

We had to wait a while to get a table, but yes it was worth it. The Mango Thai Shrimp were awesome. We had a Grouper and a medium Stone Crab, both the dishes were nice and tasty. A worthwhile visit!

“Bad experience”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

After two hours and watching people being seated that arrived long after we did we realized and witnessed that if you did not pay the maitre,d you would not be seated. The food was ok but not good enough to but up with this kind of behavior.
