Joe's Stone Crab

Restaurant | "Joe's Stone Crab Restaurant"

Quote:
Dining at Joe's is not just enjoying a meal its a true culinary adventure that you will remember for decades. I highly recommend dining at Joe's Stone Crab to experience the pure joy and tender nector of Stone Crabs dipped in their mustard sauce, served with the baked spinach tomato. Joe's culinary experience is one of a lifetime for the South Florida visitors, I'm fortunate to have experienced it for 25 years.

Welcome to The Fifth south beach, conveniently located at the north east corner of 5th Street and Lenox Ave, just off the Macarthur Causeway. Housed in a 9000sf art deco style purpose built building (the only purpose built club in south beach), The Fifth is also the only club in the district with on-site parking.

This luxurious bi-level space, with it’s warm eclectic décor retains a level of intimacy that makes one feel as though they were playing in a private NYC loft. With a penchant for delivering unparalleled service without attitude, The Fifth stands out as a lavish alternative for those with discerning taste. Welcome.
