These 11 Restaurants Serve The Best Stone Crab In Florida

Florida stone crab is pretty incredible. Some people say it’s comparable to (or better than) lobster. They’re most often served cold (with mustard sauce), but can be enjoyed hot (with butter). Additionally, stone crab is actually harvested without killing the crab, by removing only the claw and returning the creature to the ocean where it (hopefully) can regrow the lost limb. How cool is that? The stone crab season runs from October 15 to May 15, so now is the perfect time to try this Florida delicacy.
