If you are an old hat at eating stone crabs than you know they are not good every place you go. Some places keep their crab on hand too long and they are not fresh. Other places will freeze their crab try to extend the shelf life which in both cases will result in a mushy tasting and fishy smelling stone crab.
Joes Stone Crab Restaurant in Miami sets the bar and they are always good but you need to spend a weeks pay just to enjoy them. At Captain Kirks this little hidden gem is a crabbers dream come true. Its more of a fresh fish market and not a restaurant however they do have a few tables out front on the side walk where you can enjoy anything they sell inside from fresh fish and crab to their daily homemade specials.
But its the stone crabs I love the most. I went there for lunch solo and ordered 4 large stone crabs with mustard sauce and a Coke. My tab for lunch was a mere $20.00. That's right folk for 20 bucks I ate crab like a king and got to watch all the pretty girl walking bye as I was eating them. Top that Joes! Seriously though the crab was every bit as fresh as Joe's or Truluck's for that matter and I still had money left over to back for dinner and eat crabs again. The mustard sauce was very good as well. They offered small, medium, and large crab that day. 4 crabs at Trulucks is $120.00 so was I was $100.00 ahead of the game. If you are a true stone crab lover and your only goal is to eat fresh great tasting crab and break the bank while doing it than I suggest you stop in at Captain Kirks and get a mess of crab and a beer and eat your heart out!
