This classic South Beach establishment is known for its fresh stone crab claws and long wait times

South Florida’s most famous restaurant, Joe’s (which turned 100 in 2013) is as much a Miami must-see as Ocean Drive. It attracts locals, tourists and celebs, serving seasonal stone crabs (October–May) with a “secret” sauce, garlic creamed spinach, fried sweet potatoes, coleslaw and hash browns. If you don’t like seafood, try the fried chicken, or the liver and onions. Joe’s doesn’t take reservations, so be prepared for a horrendously long wait, first to register your name, then for a table. 

Time Out tip: Skip the wait at Joe’s Take Away next door, where you get the same fresh claws at the same price without the long lines. Plus, this is where you’ll find some of the best fried chicken in town for less than $10.

A must visit while in Miami. The restaurant is beautiful. We went during the day on a weekday, so there was no wait and our food came out very quickly. I had the stone crab and we shared the bisque. Both were very good! 

Stone crab is he speciality there and it s the best place took for that. Like the place to be for long time this restaurant is full of people. Bad thing you have to wait to enter or pay the service it helps ;)
