My father raved about this place and I had no idea what it really was all about.
I have to say I am not a big crab lover but the house specialty Stone Crab's has to be one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten!
If you are going to Miami do not miss this experience!
There is a reason that it has remained a top restaurant in Miami for all of these years!

Although it's now a national chain, this original location has historic panache and really does serve superb seafood. It's not cheap, and you'll need to shine your shoes or put on heels before coming over ever for lunch, but for a royal feast at Miami Beach, this spot well, hits the spot.

The insiders secret is to get the fried chicken! The ambiance and experience of Joe's for $ very cheap eats.
Stone Crabs at Joe's is the classic South beach dining experience at $$$$ but worth it.

Joe's Stone Crab banks upon its reputation as a Miami landmark and an outstanding knack for preparing stone crabs to make it a success. They rely upon this so heavily, however, that they're not afraid to irritate customers with excessively long wait times, no reservations and somewhat surly service. If you want the taste without the wait, get no-wait takeout from Joe's Takeaway, located right next to the restaurant.

A South Beach staple which may just be getting a little tired. I went for a classic surf and turf. The surf was average (in no way worthy of the iconic status Joe's holds). The turf similar, if not even worse. And I had the pleasure of paying through the nose for this questionable quality. The cherry on the cake was the service - the waiters were incredibly rude, dismissive and made us all feel unwelcome. Wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.

Food was good! I love the crabs and the key lime pie! Super delish! I still crave for the key lime pie til this day! Have not gotten anything close to it yet! Can't wait to come back here! Make sure you change out of your beach clothes before coming here! They won't serve you if you are wet and sandy! I'd recommend a cover up! That would help :)

Note to restaurant goers: No shorts, no beachwear!
That's kind of what we came in with, beach attire, but they were nice enough to still let us dine as we had dresses on over our swimwear. I had originally thought it would be one of those places with long wooden benches and mallets for you to pound open the crab with...wrong. It's actually a really nice place. We came here for, what else, but the stone crab and key lime pie that they are known best for! We got the larger stone crab because it was less work and more meat, I highly suggest that. The stone crab was fresh and juicy, it had a toughness to it so you knew it was fresh, not brittle like bad seafood. Our waitress was friendly and attentive and she showed us how to take apart the little claw. The rest of our meal I can live without. We ordered the crab mac and cheese and hash browns as sides, crab pot pie, and crab bisque. Although they were pretty tasty, they were overly creamy and I think the combination of them all at once was over powering. The next time I'm here I'm going to have to balance my meal out by ordering less creamy items. Dessert was very enjoyable though, the chocolate bread pudding and chocolate molten cake along with the key lime pie (and I don't like lime) were a real treat! 3.5 stars.
