Joe's Take Away Restaurant Review

: Picnic basket paradise. Below Fifth St., a stone crab’s throw from the Miami Beach Marina, is Joe’s Take Away. The ultimate in quick bites, this gourmet market is the next-door outlet to the giant Joe’s Stone Crab eatery. When it comes to take-out and counter eating, we’ve never had it so good. Joe’s perfect stone crab claws of all prices and sizes are available (by the piece) here, as is Joe’s famous mustard dipping sauce. Ruby red tomato salad, creamy herbed shrimp salad, and Joe’s renowned coleslaw and creamed spinach are worthwhile accompaniments. If stone crabs don’t suit your mood, a smattering of creative vegetable salads, pasta and fish preparations are all phenomenal alternatives. Awe-inspiring mile-high apple pie is available by the slice or whole. For Miami’s nautical set, Joe’s Take Away provides one-stop shopping for a bounty of gastronomic necessities to stock the cabin before setting sail. Visit Joe’s web page at to order Joe’s lavish fare, packed in ice and overnight mailed to your doorstep anywhere on Earth.
