2015 Best Miami Beach and Crab: Joe's Stone Crab

Best Miami restaurant and best crab

Any restaurant, anywhere, that stays open for more than a century is doing things the right way. Sure, the no-reservations policy can have you waiting an eternity — come early or late — but the results are always amazing. Stone crabs somehow taste better here than anywhere else. Maybe it's the famous house-made mustard sauce. Maybe it’s the tuxedoed wait staff and always bustling dining room that works as precisely as a Swiss-made watch. Joe’s is one of those South Florida restaurants you have to visit at least once. If not for stone crabs, then the surprising fried chicken appetizer or such crave-worthy side dishes as fried green tomatoes and creamed spinach. Don’t forget Key lime pie.
