Really well prepared tasty food. Great service and quite the spot to just watch the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive, especially on a Saturday evening. We were there twice, because of the crab and always found a place to sit. Would go back any time

I enjoyed the food at CJ's Crabshack. Considering there were 7 in my party the service was great and the food was prompt. I had the snow crablegs and garlic shrimp with pasta as my side. Food was not overly seasoned and tasty. My friends enjoyed the oysters as we probably had about 6 dozen between the 7 of us.... More

We came here because of my love for seafood and having been in Miami a week already I thought it was finally time to have some. So glad we chose this place. There was something for everyone on the menu even if you didn't like crab which is always a bonus. I've actually never had the privilege of proper crab... More

I will recommend the fried shrimp, really good! We went on a Thursday, wasnt a big crowd. TERRIBLE Service. It took forever to get our meals and by then, we had done finished our drinks. No One came to our table to see if we needed anything or if everything was ok until we were completely finished with our food.... More

I got the snow crab dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. Watching the night life along Ocean Dr. is also interesting to experience. Not too much more to say except I knocked the rating down a tick for having an automatic tip added to the bill. I think some restaurants in Miami just don't understand the entire reason that tipping exists... More

the shellfish was pretty good but beyond that it's hard to say much good. service was slow and disorganzied and having a reservation did nothing towards getting us a table, inside is not air conditioned, outside is OK if it is not too hot. it might be a decent place to get a meal on a slow night but there...

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
