1. Joe’s Stone Crab (Miami, Florida)

You guessed it. The best stone crabs ever. For over 100 years, Joe’s Stone Crab has been a staple for both residents and visitors of Miami Beach. While the stone crabs are of course to die for, it is the family touch that really makes Joe’s an absolute favorite. Go with a group, share an order of the stone crabs, but also make sure to try any of their other fish dishes from lobster rolls to seared tuna to crab cakes!

  1. GW Fins (New Orleans, Louisiana)

You really can’t go wrong with anything you choose to order off of the GW Fins menu, but the Scalibut is truly one of a kind. That’s right, you heard me. Scalibut = Halibut + Scallops. This dish is absolutely spectacular with halibut topped with sea scallops, and served alongside lobster risotto, snow peas, and pea shoot butter.
