A Miami Beach institution, Joe’s has been serving up seafood since the early 1900’s.  Sure, it’s no longer a wood stand on the beach (now it’s got white table cloths), but this place still delivers as it always has.  In keeping with its classy-fish-place atmosphere, Joe’s is a monument to black-and-white tile, shiny brass and big displays of barely-deceased seafood on beds of crushed ice.  Seafood lovers won’t want to leave.  Clientele-wise, Joe’s attacts the typical mish-mash of out-of-towners and old-timers that you’d expect from a nearly 100-yr-old Miami establishment.  Put a bib on, try to get seated next to a bachelorette party from somewhere else, and compare tourist notes over a plate of giant crab claws.

Venue Tip: 

Get the hash browns.  Trust us on this one:  Denny’s this ain’t.

The Good: 
Land-lubbers in the bachelor party need not worry: Joe’s has an extensive menu even for those who don’t eat large seaborne bugs. Steaks and poultry are also available, so there’s something for everyone.
The Bad: 
They don’t take reservations and, well, let’s just say this place is sort of a big deal. Don’t expect to wait less than an hour if you arrive during dinner rush-hour. It’s still worth it, and all the more time for cocktails, we say.
