Miami Beach: Joe's Stone Crab

When Marc and I were in Miami during our second leg of our honeymoon, we dropped by the infamous Joe's Stone Crab for some seafood and Key Lime Pie. There's nothing better than having the freshest stone crab around. We ordered medium Stone Crabs (roughly 8 claws), sauteed shrimp, fried calamari, and a slice key lime pie. While, everything was finger-licking good, I think the star of the meal was the Key Lime Pie. I've never had anything like it. It's a cross from a Popsicle and a cheesecake in a bright yellow color with a thick graham cracker pie crust. While there are other Joe restaurants in Las Vegas and Chicago, it will never be as good as the original. I highly recommend dropping by this place if you're ever in the area.

What to order:
  • Joe's Famous Cole Slaw - $5.95
  • Fried Calamari - $9.95
  • Sauteed Shrimp - $18.95
  • Medium Stone Crabs (8 claws) - $ Market value, roughly $21-$23
  • Slice Key Lime Pie - $6.95
Things to know:
  • The full restaurant has a strict dress code (no athletic gear or beach wear) but you can get the same stuff at its Take Away cafe right next door.
  • Joe's has its own parking lot so you don't have to park valet or on the street.
  • They don't take reservations. The restaurant opens at 5pm but the Take Away cafe is open all day for dine in or take out.
