The atmosphere is a bit Tony Soprano meets Scarface meets The Godfather ... lots of waiters in dark black suits moving around like they've been slinging crab dinners since they could walk. You don't find that kind of environment anymore, so that's fun. The food I ate, however, was awful. The salmon filet was cooked in a sickeningly sweet sauce.... More

Joe's was incredible from food to service to atmosphere. Our waiter was super helpful and personable. The food was extraordinary. The stone crabs were obviously great but the salmon was excellent. Maybe the best I've ever had. Huge tip though: the wait time is understandably long as they don't take reservations. Expect an hour at least. We asked the bartender... More

My wife and I went to Joe's for dinner. We arrived around 7:00 pm. Their professional staff sat us down in minutes. No drama or long waits. We did notice the dress code has been relaxed substantially. Some were well dressed and appropriate for the occasion and others looked liked they washed off the beach. But the best part is... More

First class service all around. The Stone Crab claws are to die for in season. The reason for 4 stars rather than 5 are the uninspired sides. I had the Joe's Classic plate. Creamed spinach and hashbrowns were both disappointing for signature dishes. I recommend ordering just the crab and dessert...

We ate lunch at Joe's and it was delicious! Munched on a salad, stone crabs, and some pasta. Very simply prepared but it allowed the flavours of the crab to be front and centre.

We had reservations for 5p.m. and arrived a little early, sat at the bar and had a cocktail, then was called to be seated at 5. Our waiter was fabulous, filled us in on the history of the place and then on the food. Of course had stone crabs for dinner, I was surprised they were cold, but then I... More

A good opportunity to eat the famous crab legs and undoubtedly are a delight. I ate well but also paid well. I advise if it is dinner to go very early 18.30 maximum or very late 22.30 because it is one of the most crowded in Miami and there are always lots of people. A good experience and be sure... More

First time we have been to a crab resturant and it was very nice. As we did not know how to eat the crab claws we decided to go for crab bisque, crab cake with hash brown & key lime pie we shared each dish & it was plenty of food all very nice & enjoyed the experience. The resturant... More
