The seafood is great! I ordered the Cajun Crab platter which included cajun snow crab,cajun shrimp,a crab... read more

Visited on a busy night, but despite that, the service was non-existent. Servers usually expect you to drink alcohol throughout, and if you don't order it, they don't spend much time on you. There is an added tax for gratuity to your bill in this high tourism area, so even if the server doesn't deserve the tip, they get it... More

Great location with outside seating. Excellent food and service. The crab legs came with large shrimp in a garlic sauce and French fries. Would highly recommend

Had dinner there on our last night. As we wanted something more quiet without blasting electro music we opted for CJ's. We were not disappointed: food was great ($20 steak special, very tasty and a variety of sides to choose from, the seafood looked great and fresh too) and drinks during happy hour (I guess it's on as long the...

Amazing choice and excellent service. Cocktails at Happy Hour prices. A fisherman's platter to share between 4 of us while catching up. Great crab and fish in particular. Loved it and reasonable price. All cooked to order.

I dont even like seafood but the fisherman's platter was awesome! The food was great, the drinks were strong but not burnt, and the staff was very friendly. It's a little pricy but worth it!

Had dinner here on my last night in Miami Beach. Was sat within 5 mins at a nice outdoor table, great for people watching (and there is plenty of it!). Was greeted right away by both the waitstaff and the owner. Food was really good (I had oysters and crab cakes) and service was great. Definitely will visit again when... More

We ordered our steamed shrimp to go, and they were very willing to accommodate my special request! We also enjoyed chatting with Veronica while we waited for our order =:)
