Joe's Stone Crab

South Beach’s landmark seafood destination for 100 years, Joe’s Stone Crab is a part of the very fabric of the community and remains one of the most important items on any foodie’s To-Do List. Famous for the seasonal hard shelled crab claws that are available October through May, the kitchen’s standout dishes also include spicy chowder, oniony Lyonnaise potatoes and tart Key Lime pie

While stone crabs are a pricey treat, the rest of the seafood menu is fresh, simply prepared and reasonably priced. Avoid long lines to get a table in the no-reservations dining room by visiting at lunchtime when the menu is just as tantalizing and there is rarely a wait.

If witnessing the hubbub of the dinner rush is part of your plans, arrive before prime time at 7pm or after 8:30pm to avoid peak crowds. Locals often opt for Joe’s Takeaway which sits just north of the main entrance and prepares the same menu items to cater an impromptu picnic. The takeaway serves all day long, offering truly affordable entrees like southern fried chicken and crispy oysters.
