Good food a bit pricey.

Food is good just be careful there's a automatic 18% gratuity evev for 2 people. This is a new must for me.

The service was good! Our waiter was attentive and very friendly. The food was good for the cost! I AM IN LOVE WITH the CJ's Cajun Combo! Came with 2 giant crab legs, 4 baked oysters and a side dish (pasta or corn). If you ask for both, they might give it to you ;) My friend had the Grouper... More

Place is great. I don't even eat seafood. My wife got the seafood pasta she said it was unreal seafood to pasta ratio was great. I had the ribeye that the owner himself recommended, who was our waiter. Let me tell you I only eat filet or skirt steak and the ribeye was unreal! It's down out of the way... More

We had dinner here on our last night in Miami. We wanted to sit inside, but its small and not much to look at. Some people were leaving, so we lucked up on a good outside table. The food was tasty, we had crab cakes, shrimps and crab legs with some sides. The drinks were good and decent variety. We... More

My partner and I recently dined here on out holiday in Miami. Drinks are great - cocktails were delicious. Food we thought lacked. It could have been presented nicer, and the shrimp pasta didn't have enough shrimp or flavor to it. Some water to dip your hands in after eating the crab would have been handy also. The food is...

My husband and I both got sick after eating here on the last day of our vacation. Besides that, I was very disappointed with the food. I'd read great reviews but this place definitely did not meet my expectations.

My boyfriend and I both had snow crab and shrimp. You get a lot for your money and it is really well cooked. We opted for old bay seasoning which is too salty. Everything else was on point. Garlic shrimp delicious. Service friendly and helpful. Would come again.

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
