    If you're visiting Miami, this place is a MUST. There's almost always a wait for a table, so it's best to get Joe's to go to minimize the time before you can eat their incredible stone crab claws.

    Most people know Joe's for stone crab, but their fresh fish and other seafood is also outstanding. And, interestingly, Joe's keeps a hamburger and fried chicken on the menu at a real bargain price!

    A Miami institution and a must. Ordered two large orders and I was plenty for two folks with two sides. Unless you are eating other foods. The key lime pie is a must!

    Joe's Stone Crab is ranked #1 seafood restaurant in Miami Beach by Foursquare City Guide users and we know why... Three things to order: stone crab claws, grilled tomatoes and key lime pie.

    The stone crab great, but I'll be coming back for the key lime pie. I also enjoyed the crunchy kale salad and fried chicken. The staff are efficient, professional and attentive. Great place

    Lives up to the hype. The take-away section of the restaurant is more laid back and features just as great of food. Crab legs are priced based on market value, so they can be a bit expensive.

    If you’re not getting stone crabs, go for the glazed salmon. The sauce is sweet and savory, and the fish is always fresh. Chopped salad and the tomato are classic starters.

    If you want to try this place more than once it is a good idea to come for lunch. Walked up to the gentleman at the front about noon with a group of 5 at about 12 noon and he was ready to get us sat.

    If you enjoy food (and wine) as much as I do, you need to ask your waiter to take his time. Order your main after your appetizer is over, then you'll know you won't receive everything simultaneously.

    The Killer King Crab Claws that you can have shipped to your door. Could eat these everyday with a chilled Cava or Presecco. Great staff. Really expensive but worth the splurge.

    Go on a weeknight and before 7pm for a short wait! We split one large order of the stone crabs plus one side of hash browns and one appetizer and it was plenty of food!

    Appetizers were so good! The cold seafood platter was ok but not worth the 47$ at all! Strong drinks always a plus! Great experience !

    Amazing food and great service. A South Beach classic that should not be missed. Splurge for the stone crab and try a mojito. You won't be disappointed.

    The shrimp cocktail, sweeter and plumper than most you can score in the U.S., rim a chalice filled with a house-made sauce. Order the jumbo claws if they're in season and larges any other time.

    Jumbo crab was good, they have to work on their side orders thou… their hash brown recipe has room for improvement. Grilled tomatoes was cold, we would enjoy it more if they were fresh out of oven.

    Little expensive, but really good. Best crab cake I had ever tried (and I order it a lot!). The macaroni with cheese and lobster is a nice and cheap choice!
