Get Ready for the 106th Season of Joe’s Stone Crab
One of the best times of the year in South Florida is the stone crab season and one of the best places to celebrate it is at Joe’s Stone Crab. This iconic Miami Beach mainstay will be opening its doors to celebrate its 106th season on October 15 at 5 pm sharp.
Joe’s Stone Crab is named after Joe Weiss and its history goes back to 1913. Born in Hungary and living in New York, Weiss arrived in Miami Beach with the hopes of finding some relief for his asthma. Joe and his wife originally opened a shack focused on seafood located on Collins Avenue. After an ichthyologist noticed the many stone crabs in the area, he brought them to the attention of Joe Weiss, asking whether they were suitable to eat.
Today, Joe’s Stone Crab is notable for attracting notable names including actors, politicians, and athletes. Despite its popularity and many years of operation, it remains a a family-owned and operated restaurant. A notable aspect of the restaurant is its stance on reservations, which it does not do. Hence, anyone who wants to dine there should arrive early or they may have to wait several hours before they can be seated.
