We had to go next door to their take away. Same food but no service but we didn't want to wait 3 hours because they would be closed by then. My lobster roll was disappointing, I had one much better in NYC, for more than half the price. Lobster Macaroni and Cheese almost $20? Seriously??? And it wasn't that good.... More

Host was awesome! Talkative and friendly. Our waiter was the total opposite. Unpleasant and cold. That being said, the crab bisque was outstanding. The creamed spinach and chilled seafood platter were good. The red snapper was very good. The price was a little high but we knew that going in. It was worth dining there once.

This place is a landmark in Miami Beach,and the reason is the good food and service. I usually visit the take out store next door, which is a smaller place, with a limited menu, is faster if you don't have much time, you can also dine there if you please, they have a bar and a small dining room, they...

Could not have been a better experience. Get there early! We arrived at 5pm on a Wednesday. We were seated right away. Love the tradition of the waiters lined up to greet and seat the party. Mary Alice was our waitress, she was AWESOME. Knowledgeable, personable and efficient. 4 people in our party. We had the oysters-fresh. The lobster macaroni... More

Beautiful setting, friendly staff, and most of all, best crab in South Florida. Don't order anything else until you have crab claws. Cream spinach and Key Lime Pie are a nice complement.

As a first time visitor to this establishment, I was looking forward to tasting my first stone crab. It was delicious. The only thing that disappointed me was that the wait to get a table was over an hour. We had been told that it could be anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Since it was only the two... More

The food and the service was excellent. We had to wait 1 1/2 hours to be seated but it was worth it. We took a drink while waiting and watched people. You should go there when you are at Miami Beach.
