Where To Enjoy The Best, Fresh Lobster On Lobster Day In Miami

Lobster Day is approaching on September 25th, and in Miami, that gives us an excuse to indulge in the delicious seafood. With our proximity to the water, there’s plenty of exquisite restaurants to choose from that will be offering their own take on inventive lobster dishes, or just execute a perfectly roasted or steamed, hearty lobster. Here’s a top picks of where to celebrate the foodie holiday and what to order:


Lobster mac n cheese joes stone crab

The South Beach institution has a decades-old reputation for serving up the best seafood in Miami—and we certainly agree. Thus, any lobster dish coming from here is guaranteed to be a hit. You can opt for the classic lobster roll which can be ordered at the restaurant or to-go from the popular Joe’s Take Away section, which comes with a side of crispy potato chips, or the Maine Lobster from the restaurant, served steamed or broiled with Lobster Ritz Cracker stuffing. If you’re in the mood for something more cheat-worthy, try the extra-cheesy Lobster Mac & Cheese.

If you’re looking for food that never fails to impress, head to the Bay Harbour outpost of the famous Palm Steakhouse for some downright good grub. Celebrate Lobster Day with the classic House Specialty Lobster—tender, succulent, premium lobsters from Nova Scotia, or get the best of both worlds and create a Signature Palm Surf N Turf for some beef on the side of your juicy lobster.

Our personal favorite is the Chili Lobster where the whole steamed lobster is presented with a mouth-watering chili butter sauce on top that will create a uniquely delicious kick to pair with your classic lobster dish.
