Joe’s Stone Crab

Perhaps the oldest dining establishment on the block, Joe’s Stone Crab made its South Beach debut back in 1913. The folks at Joe’s had over a century to perfect their craft, and perfect it they did. What started as a simple yet delicious fish sandwich transformed into a stone crab sensation. Originally, Joe’s didn’t serve stone crab, but eventually the menu item put the long-time South Beach eatery on the map. Joe’s signature dishes include stone crab claws, clam chowder and key lime pie.
