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...

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

Joe's stone crab absolutely lives up to its historic landmark reputation. My family of five, (all ages) absolutely LOVED IT!!! This was my first time trying crab, and the waiter made it incredible!! He was very interactive, complete with pictures of the crabs, how they catch them, and a hands on tutorial on how to eat them. In the end,... More
