Starting October 15th, this where you can get stone crabs in Miami.

It’s a no-brainer that Miami is synonymous with nightlife. But we prefer being known for the finer things in life, like Florida Stone Crab.

Starting October 15th through early to mid-May, stone crabs are officially in season. The fresh claws are sourced and harvested in The Keys all the way up to the Florida Panhandle. They are a delicacy enjoyed by locals and out-of-towners who frequent Miami.

We recently asked our Hungries to help us out with their go-to for stone crab.

Here’s what we came up with.

1. GEORGE’S STONE CRAB


Order: HERE 

George Stone Crab has been delivering stone crabs since 2008. With over 80 fishermen in the Keys George’s ships nation-wide overnight. Each order of claws is freshly caught and delivered within 24-36 hours. When ordering online you can also grab a Fireman Derek’s Key Lime Pie

2. ACAPELLA SEAFOOD CO.


Order: HERE 

In 2020 we discovered Acapella Seafood Co. and fell in love with the meaty and tender claws. We almost feel like fools for not knowing about them. But then again, you live and you learn. With over 23 years of experience, Acapella has been sustainably sourcing stone crabs daily from the Keys and delivering for free throughout Miami.

3. JOE’S STONE CRAB


Order: HERE 

If you just moved to Miami, one of your first stops needs to be Joe’s Stone Crab. After all, it’s been around since 1913. We always pick up from Joe’s Take Away. The food is the same quality as their fine-dining restaurant without the wait and white table cloths.

4. HOLY CRAB DELIVERY


Order: HERE

Another local spot that ships fresh stone crabs nationwide. Holy Crabs’ fishermen abide by the standards to only remove one claw per harvest. They also provide packaging made from 100% recycled materials. They also offer a two-hour express delivery in Miami. Pick-up is also available at  MKT Kitchen.

5. LA CAMARONERA

One of Miami’s most iconic seafood restaurants and markets will also have stone crabs this season. This family business has been around since the 60s. And is a trusted source to many Miami natives for fresh seafood. Order at the seafood market or call in to see availability.
