Delicious crab legs!

If you like a laid back setting and outdoor seating this is a great find on Miami Beach. The food is delicious and the service is friendly and efficient! The Parmesan bread is wonderful as an appetizer, too!

Food was good, i recommend the steak with fries and or chicken wings with buffalo sauce. Drinks were actually a little expensive and some customers were complaining about the price and owner looked drunk or something but other than that it was good. Luis at the valet company was very polite, very fast and cheap will come again soon. Beach... More

I came to this place because i was recommended by a friend, there was an hour wait for the food for the surprise that the food was cold when it came in, I had ordered fried calamaris and fried shrimp. I ordered a Margarita and it was pretty much only margarita mix with no alcohol. Decided to ask for the... More

We spent an evening on the patio at CJ's Crab Shack on March 15, 2015. We ordered the oysters Rockefeller and calamari as appetizers and enjoyed a few cocktails. We thought the portion of calamari was great and they were crispy and delicious. As our main dishes we had the seafood platter and the crab leg dinner. Both were hot... More

The other reviews said it was good so we walked on by. We saw the 20 steak special and 30 lobster special. We bought one of each. The wines were 10 for a glass. It was a nice sized pour. The lobster was a nice large tail with grilled shrimp. It was cooked perfectly. My rib eye was also awesome.... More

Service was slow, no one smiled, food was just ok. Valet parking is a scam. Did not tell us about keeping receipt, or the 2 hr limit. They showed us the sign when we came back but we were 2 cars back when we pulled up so we didn't even see a sign and we even asked the man about... More

We had a sidewalk table on a beautiful spring Friday afternoon. The town was mobbed with tourists from all over the world. It seemed that every restaurant on Ocean Drive was doing a brisk business and the street was packed with traffic. There is a valet parking site at the restaurant: $15 for 2 hours during the day or $15... More

First time to South Beach and was told to visit CJ's. We were very hungry when we arrived so we ordered a variety of appetizers. All were absolutely amazing. Drunken shrimp, crab dip and grilled wings, I recommend all of them. For main course I had Grouper in a bag.... Can't say enough about how tasty it was. Crab legs... More

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 so is south beach.... More
