Since 1966, this spot has been the best place to eat on the Miami River - where you can watch yachts, boats that are almost certainly smuggling something illegal, and the occasional lost dolphin all drift by over the course of lunch. It’s still a good choice because it’s delicious, simple, and one of the few waterfront spots where you won’t be surrounded by $200 bottles of rosé and people who arrived via luxury jet ski. Start with some fried shellfish, listen closely to the daily specials, and if it’s stone crab season, you know what to do.
