Joe's Takeaway

11 Washington Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-673-4611

Location Description:

Forget about waiting two hours to get a table Joe's Stone Crab. Savvy insiders know to head next door to Joe's Take Away, where the stone crabs are packed on ice and the lines are much shorter. Eat in or take your claws (market price) to go. The bustling market features a smattering of tables and counter space. You'll often see eager diners diving into an order of stone crabs with Joe's signature mustard dipping sauce. Or perhaps they are trying Alaskan king crab claws (market price). There's also shrimp cocktail ($12.95), chilled Florida lobster ($13.95), fried calamari ($8.95), ginger salmon ($18.95), a blackened tuna sandwich ($8.95), and a plethora of starchy sides (all in the $6 range). Additionally, Joe's Take Away offers a wide selection of nonseafood items, such as breakfast and lunch fare. There are daily specials and soups, which make this market the perfect place to stock your fridge for the weekend. And the coffee bar can sate your serious caffeine need. End it all with a slice of famous key lime pie ($6.95) and you'll be full for days. It doesn't get much more Miami than this. Just remember that Joe's Take Away is open seasonally, from mid-October to mid-May.
