Joe's Stone Crab Restaurant
For 97 years, no visit to Miami has been complete without stopping in at Joe's Stone Crab. From the beginning, it has always been the love of food, family, and friends that has brought in customers and kept them coming.
Never go to this restaurant!!! They are truly nothing but ignorant snobs. They would not serve our family because one of the ladies did not have sleeves. You have got to be kidding? Little did they know that we could buy and sell the place from under their feet!
I went to Joe's this past weekend, and was EXTREMELY disappointed. The waiter at our table was the most rude waiter I have ever had in my life. We requested a different waiter before ordering drinks, to which we were denied. The crabs were horrible, and when we complained to a manager we were told that we should follow the weather better as the water temperature determines the quality of the crabs! Seriously! I did order the sirloin and it was delicious, but for a seafood restaurant to sell crabs that they readily admit were poor quality, at the price they do, is a disgrace. There were many other Miami restaurants that were enjoyable, do not waste your time at Joe's. You will surely be disappointed, if not sick as one of my friends was after the meal.
To truly enjoy this great Miami Restaurant follow this easy guide:
Start with the Conch Fritters and Fried Green Tomatoes; the Lobster Cocktail is also heavenly. If there's two a medium size order is all you need unless you got a big appetite then the large claws will suffice. Creamed Spinach as a side will not fail you and their Wedge is tasty if you want a salad. Key Lime Pie for dessert is a must. Wash it down with Mojitos to really get that South Florida vibe. Yeah you'll spend around $200.00 but this is not Joe's Crab Shack...it's Joe's Stone Crab! The money is worth the wait and the food. ENJOY!
