Joe's has been around for longer than I can remember. The best stone crabs in the city can be enjoyed here but you better make sure you have a reservation. It is usually packed and reservations are made well in advance.

Hi missbrando, I don't the answer for your question, but this is definitely not the price for a portion of the Alaskan king crab claws I usually order. Actually $270 is what we (me and my bf) usually spend for our whole... More
