Joe Stop making Ceviche I purchased both, the shrimp and fish Ceviche today, they were so bad I could not eat it. After I left the restaurant two blocks away I found I place that actually knows how to make Ceviche. I am mad that this place makes this kind of food that I won't visit this place again

The ambiance, the food, the service, and the prices are first class. This is one of the top places in Miami Beach but it is along ways from what it was when it started. If you can afford it don't miss it but it is not the only place to get Stone Crabs. The 2 times I have been here... More

Very nice staff despite the madhouse at Receptionist...They take NO reservaations but the crabs are worth it! Expensive, lowest cost is $30 for seven claws...no sides!

The place is iconic, a throwback with waiters in tux's surrounding your tablebut the food I found to be just ok and not very exciting.Split some crab claws that were again ok,my tuna was overcooked and while I waited for a new one they offered me shrimp cocktail which was a nice gesture and quite tasty

We arrived at Miami Beach at 8:30pm on a Tuesday and decided if we could get into Joe's as a walk in. We arrived at 9pm and was promptly seated. The waiter was friendly and initially attentive. We needed time to look at the menu and when we were ready to order it was difficult to get the waiter's attention.... More

OK...love stone crabs and have coming here for years. Had lunch here recently and it was mediocre at best. Have had better Stone Crabs in NYC. Indulged in the Jumbo/Colossal variety and they just were NOT that great! Sorry..I realize this is "THE" place but it just was not so!!

Came here because of good reviews. But could not believe how much plastic we used. All dishes come in plastic bowls with plastic containers for sauces topped off with plastic knifes and forks. Everything went into bins.

Every time we are in Miami for Basel we stop by Joes. Worth the wait. Side dishes are just as good as the main event....stone crab. Heavenly and worth the $$$$

Being a "crab" fan, I really wanted to see what the fuzz was about, the crab bisque was delicious, amazing, the fried calamary were good but very heavy, feeling full right after eating a few of them, my wife got the Branzino with hummus which was spectacular, however the crab itself was nothing spectacular, had much sweater ones in France...
