A casual dining atmosphere with a reasonably priced lunch menu. The fish was excellent, the service was good but when l asked for a cup of coffee to round off my meal l was told they don't serve it! I don't think l have ever eaten I a restaurant that doesn't serve coffee, they might want to rethink that?

The display of food plates outside the restaurant honestly looked tantalizing, especially the lobster tail and shrimp plate. It looked so good the other week when I passed by, I actually made a special trip to it this evening. I was so terribly disappointed. First of, the outdoor feel, look, and ambience was great, colored lights, and charming. But it... More

I recently visited South Beach from Cleveland Oh, and CJ's was recommended to me by a family friend who used to work at a restaurant on South Beach. When I ate there, the environment was great and the cocktails were exceptionally well especially during happy hour for what they cost. The food seems really fresh and was not that expensive... More

I didn't eat there but if I'd had known I was going to get charged $60.00 for an hour and a half parking I would have....but having just flown in over night we wanted to see the beach and walk a bit while waiting for our room...when a guy pulls us over and says he'll park our car for $15.00...

Plan to come back for the crab but fancied a steak. Excellent rare rib-eye - 16oz for $20. Cocktails good too. Will be back.

We ate here on our first full day in Miami. Arrived just after 6 p.m. to discover it was Happy Hour till 7. So half price appetisers and cocktails. The crab dip starter was excellent, as were the rum punches. I really enjoyed my snow crab dinner and there was plenty left for lunch the next day. It wasn't a... More

In town for business, was recommended to CJ's by a friend from Minnesota who said (surprisingly) "Get the steak". "At a seafood restaurant?" Heed his recommendation, come here on a Thursday night and get the 16oz Ribeye. You will not be disappointed! We sat outside, enjoying the (cool for Miami) weather and view. Will be back!
