Fodor's Review

This Southern-style restaurant is known for gracious service and fresh seafood sourced from its own fisheries. Extras like black napkins for black-attired guests, adjustable lighting at each table and warm moist towels offered after meals add to the memorable experience. Miso-glazed sea bass is a menu classic, along with Alaskan king crab and a New Orleans–inspired blackened swordfish. The crab fried rice is so popular and plentiful that some guests order it as an entrée. On Monday, fill up with all-you-can-eat stone crab claws. For dessert, share the carrot cake or coconut cream pie. Live piano music and happy hour half-price cocktails can be enjoyed nightly in the Stone Crab Lounge.
