Where can you eat during the South Beach Seafood Festival?

Joe’s Stone Crab. Epicurean masterpieces from this iconic Miami Beach seafood restaurant are yours for the taking. Get tickets for An Evening at Joe’s an exclusive event hosted in Jesse’s Room — where Al Capone and Frank Sinatra famously dined. Even if you can’t swing the event, the stone crabs at Joe’s are not to be missed.

Bodega. Order incredible $3 tacos from the food truck with refreshing tequila drinks to wash them down. But Bodega is also much more than an elevated Mexican dive. Through the hidden door, you’ll find an expansive speakeasy with an industrial vibe and comfy vintage couches.

The Lobster Shack. The most informal of the trio, the Lobster Shack serves lobster rolls, crabs, oysters, and more — plus champagne and beer pairings. Dine inside or out — servers will take your order directly on the beach, so you never have to sacrifice your spot on the sand. For quicker service, order, grab, and go, and bring your food back to the beach for dining with an ocean view.
