Tips for How and When to Visit Joe's Stone Crab RestaurantJoe's Stone Crab restaurant has been a Miami Beach staple for almost 100 years. When a restaurant has been around for that long, you know it's going to be good. Located at 11 Washington, Joe's is only a stone's throw from Miami Beach and all the fun festivities that come with it.
Go to Joe's early. During the summer months Joe's is only open for dinner, beginning at 6 p.m., and if you don't want to fight the crowd, it is recommended to come in around opening. Closer towards 7 the restaurant fills up, forcing you to wait. There is a no reservation policy, so its first come first serve.
What to Order at Joe's Stone Crab RestaurantJoe's has a rather large menu, but let's face it, if you're going to a crab restaurant, you might as well go with the crab and other seafood. For starters, there is the Florida little neck clams. This comes in a lemongrass, lemon and cilantro sauce that is light and brings out the flavor in the steamed clams exceptionally well, although you are going to feel the crunch of sand in between your teeth while you chew.
When moving onto the main course, you have several crab options. If you can't make up your mind, go with Joe's Classic. This comes with three crab claws, hash brown, creamed spinach and cole slaw. The crab claws come out pre-cracked, so you aren't left fighting with the tough shell of the crab. The crab is served cold, but you can ask your server to serve the crab warm if you choose.
Joe's Classic also comes with a slice of their famous key-lime pie, which in itself is worth the price of admission. The key-lime filling is cold and soft, while the graham cracker crust adds a nice crunch to the desert. The slices are small, so don't even dream about getting one to share. The pie is delicious enough that you might just want two for yourself.
