Lovely Food

Stopped off here whilst walking up ocean drive. It's a great place just to sit outside and have a bit of space. The grilled oysters are up there with the best I have ever had. The staff are attentive and polite but not over pushy. We were not rushed for the table after we had finished eating and... read more

You get to pick your own seating. the waitress was prompt and polite. she was knowledgeable about menu selections. The appetizers came before the food. The food came in a timely fashion. and you were NOT bamboozled by ordering a drink thinking it was a normal price and end up paying 55 dollars for it. What you saw on the... More

Went here with a group of friends for the crab legs specifically. We were at the end of our trip so we opted to eat inside. Im not sure if they are renovating or if this place is just old and shabby. After getting bitten by a million mosquitoes we moved back outside. I ordered the Lobster special which was... More

We went here for dinner 2 nights ago. The food was average and a bit too pricey for the taste, portions, and environment. We sat outside on the porch area near the back where there was poor lighting. We ordered a drink and found out afterwards that it was $35. I've had better for much less. The waitress was friendly... More

Our Uber driver recommended this restaurant for Crab Legs. We were NOT disappointed. We were a little shocked to see it's as much a hole in the wall as it is, but prices are reasonable, and seafood as good as it gets in South Beach. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner with drinking.

CJ's was our first stop after returning from a 3 day cruise. So, it was nice to sit outside without hundreds of people around and enjoy Miami Beach. Had the mahi salad which was a very generous portion. The ingredients and mahi were very fresh! My only complaint was the service was a little slow, but we had no place... More

I went to this restaurant for the first time this past weekend and the crab legs were hands down some of the best I have had in a long. I will definitely be going back again. My guests were impressed!

I've been here a few times and I've never had a problem. Not one. My kind of seafood. I love Snow Crab and theirs were great and I've always loved the Crab cakes. The fried Shimp are to die for . Give them a try

Was so good we ate here twice during our stay. Make sure to stop by for lunch and have the shrimp po boy special for 9.95. If having dinner here the crab cakes and the crab spin and artichoke dip is the way to go. Wasn't a fan of their frozen drinks.
