Just visited for a very simple lunch and enjoyed their crab nicoise salad. Definitely a restaurant we'll go back to and clearly deserving of its good reputation.

For main course I had the Chilean sea bass and he had the filet charred rare. The main course was excellent. The service this time was excellent. The waiter was very good and assisted with... More

We were warned that we would have to wait for a table but fortunately that was not the case and we were able to sit on the patio at the front and watch the world go by. It was a very hot afternoon so we both had the Crab Nicoise salad, which was delicious. The crab was succulent and plentiful... More

We make it a point to go to Joes whenever in South Florida. Spent last two weeks here and were there 3 times!! It doesn't get any better than Joes!! Gotta have the stone crab bisque, of course stone crabs, and key lime pie. Lemon drop Martinis are great too!!

I finally made it to Joe's, and was not disappointed. The food lives up to its reputation. This place should not be confused with the franchise, Joe's a Crab Shack. This is finer dining. While pricey, the quality is well worth it. It's perfeCt for special occasions.

This is the best Crab meal I have had anywhere it was superb. The waiter guided us through the menu and advised not to order 6 mains because of the size of the portions! Great atmosphere great service great food

Joe's Stone Crab is a regular stop every time I am in Miami. Go early and/or reserve because the waiting line can be long. That has its benefit so, kind of a fashion show of tourists from the eastern seaboard. The food, naturally you order sumptuous stone crabs here, and for desert key lime pie, is delicious. Don't feel too... More

Get the stone crab and key lime pie, you will NOT regret it! My husband ate so much he fell straight into a food coma the minute we arrived back at our hotel!
