Went with some family, since we always wanted to try it. Very good Crab. Sweet and tasty. I thought the hash browns were weird, and the cole slaw is different than most. But overall a good place with great service. I like the old world feel of the place, like it's been around awhile. Little pricey, but it's worth it.

A friend recommended us to come here as "his favorite restaurant in Miami".
We came here at 0500pm and got a table without waiting in line.
The whole place and the waiters all look like a very old traditional restaurant which is not bad per se.
My wife had the "selected stone crabs" a highly praised specialty. I had the Mahi-Mahi and was a bit disappointed.
The key lime pie was pretty good.
The restaurant is in our opinion kind of a tourist trap and extremly overpriced. We wish them another 101 years minimum but we'll not come back in the mean time!

Great place for fantastic seafood. Didn't try the main restaurant as I was staying just down the road. Had the take away instead which was delivered fast and tasted excellent. Highly recommended for great seafood.

Great restaurant-the stone crabs are the best!!! The restaurant is busy and fun. Service is always great. All meals are great. This restaurant is an adventure-more than a restaurant. Very memorable-expensive but worth every penny!!!!!

On our second trip to Miami Beach and with a recommendation from friends, we visited Joe's. Although the server was charming, we were very disappointed with the food. I am used to crab on the West Coast, and these local crabs were nothing special and actually overcooked. The spinach was good, cole slaw bizarre, and Key Lime pie barely thawed. Find a better restaurant.
