Good location to get seafood by the beach

The best part of the restaurant is the location and the outdoor seating. I came here from the beach and the beach gym to get some quick tequila and oysters. The oysters were $1.50 each and came on ice with lemon and crackers. The tequila was great and service was fast. It's a little expensive but... read more

We found this place on the beach and stopped by on our first night on Miami Beach. It was a bit out of the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive, which I liked. We sat outside and the owner CJ came out and told us all about the fresh seafood.....very nice guy and it is obviously a family run spot.... More

Had dinner here tonight and it was very good. Service actually was excellent. My husband and I chose to eat inside, big mistake; no ambiance what so ever! Eat outside! The food was very good and fairly reasonable considering we were on ocean drive but did not feel like ocean drive! Like I said, eat outside! Overall, very good (crab... More

I used the valet adjacent to CJ's Crab Shack as we went to the beach. When we got our car back and were on the road, we discovered those crooks stole all the cash we had stashed. Do not use those thieves for parking services when dining at CJ's.

We were looking for a great seafood restaurant on Ocean Drive in South Beach without having to pay a fortune or get ripped off. CJ's is great - a family owned restaurant that has been there years. Really good seafood, great service, friendly staff and reasonable prices. We went back 3 times. Tip: walk on the other side of the... More

We had a great meal here. The owner said if we didn't like the food we didn't have to pay. The food was great. So we paid. The crab cakes were good.

We ate at CJ's on a Tuesday for lunch after walking a few miles on the beach so we were HUNGRY. My wife had the crab salad & crab cake appetizer and I had a seafood sampler & a mojito. The crab cakes were definitely the best we've both ever had. The crab salad was standard and the seafood sampler... More

We had spent a few hours at the beach a few block up on Dec 31, and decided to stop by for a late lunch. We actually called for a reservation while we were picking up out towels asking for an outdoor table since the area was crazy with tourists. When we arrived the hostess was not very nice and...
