You absolutely must try Joe's at least once. Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth the splurge. We actually enjoyed the lobster roll more so than the claws, although very good. We complemented the meal with sweet potato fries, slaw, and spinach. And, topped it off with the absolute best key lime pie we've ever savored. There was no wait for a party of two around 1:00pm on a Saturday. The service was fab and they also have a complimentary parking lot across the street.

Went with friends about a week ago. We went pretty late so I didn't get a chance to experience the real prime time atmosphere but we still enjoyed our meal. I plan to go back during prime time just to experience the atmosphere. Stone grabs were wonderful and pretty reasonable. Expect to spend $75-$100 per person including drinks. They had much more than stone crabs on the menu. I work in a hotel so I do know that they do not take reservations under 20 guests. Walk in basis only. If you do not want to wait 45 mins to 1hr or so go early before 7pm or late after 9:30pm. Make sure you try the Brussels sprouts and fried sweet potatoes. The food alone is well worth the visit. Glad I went. Will most likely go back.

Joe's is always good. I've visited several times and have never been disappointed. Their stone crab is the best in town and don't miss their thin, crisp sweet potato fries and their excellent key lime pie. When not in the mood to sit at the restaurant I opt for their quick, casual take out section, where you can either pick up and take home or eat there in a much more casual atmosphere. Always good, always delicious!

This restaurant was to die for! We knew there would be a long wait so it wasn't surprising that is was an hour and a half. We sat at the bar and had yummy appetizers and the got sat and ordered or main courses! Wonderful seafood and excellent service!

Big destination restaurant and seemingly compulsory if you are in the South Beach area. It's expensive for what it is - tasty but rather basic food and very long waiting times to get a table. Not on the water, so no view. There are better places for the visitor to enjoy South Beach.
