Joe's Stone Crab, Friday at 9 p.m.

Welcome to Eater Scenes, where Eater photographer Cortney Cates visits some of the city's great restaurants. Today, in honor of Classics Week, Joe's Stone Crab.

In 1913 Joe Weiss opened up a small lunch shack on Miami Beach, but it wasn't until 1921 when him and his fishing partner James Allison discovered stone crabs that the place really took off. They started selling the delicious crustacean for $0.75 for five claws with a side of hash browns and mayonnaise dipping sauce, which you can still find on the Joe's Stone Crab menu today.

While the prices have increased over the years, the popularity of the legendary Miami Beach restaurant hasn't some 102 years later. In honor of Classics Week here at Eater get a peek inside Joe's during a busy Friday night dinner service.
