Open since 1913, Joe's Stone Crab is a legend in Miami. In fact, they say you haven't truly visited South Florida until you've been to Joe's. Stick out the lengthy wait, and you'll be amply rewarded with some of the best stone crab known to man, mouthwatering sides like hash browns and creamed spinach, plus desserts like the phenomenal key lime pie. Joe's is open full hours during stone crab season (October to May). Want a really good long-timer trick or two? Visit during off hours (yes, that means dining at 4 p.m.); order the fried chicken (it's a hidden secret but it's some of the best in town); and don't ever try to visit during the first or last few days of stone crab season (you'll be mobbed, and the claws will be small and, if a hurricane has recently passed through in October, previously frozen).
- Seafood: "Joe's is legendary for seasonal shellfish as well as two-hour waits. Have a snack beforehand but don't give up since it's well worth it!"
- Best for Seafood Because: Being a successful and uber-popular seafood restaurant for over a century makes this local hotspot worthy of 10Best status.
