Liked the food -didn't like the 18% service charge!!! A shared dip starter and crab legs and prawns were nice -not exceptional -the most expensive meal we had in South beach!

After being in South Beach for 2 days and had eaten at several places along Ocean Drive, we stumbled up CJ's Crab Shack just walking down Ocean Drive. My husband and I love seafood so we stopped and had dinner there. Boy! This was the best meal we had during our entire 4 day stay in Miami Beach. The crab... More

Worth a visit if looking to eat on/near Ocean Drive. Reasonable prices (for the area) and the food was delicious. I had the Mahi tacos (incredible fries) and my wife had the Crab Cake dinner. If I went again I'd choose her meal! The crab cakes were so good. Good, friendly service from the owner too; a bit of a... More

If you are looking for a casual restaurant with EXCELLENT seafood while in South Beach, look no further. The oysters Rockefeller were the best I have ever had!!! Also ordered other apps that were just as good. CJ was very nice and tended to our table which made the experience all that better.

We found this on trip advisor. Checked it out. Great food, especially the crab cakes. Great service, too! My husband had the Cajun platter. He said it was the best! Shrimp, oysters, crab legs and a crab cake. And fries!

We enjoyed the food and the prices...my husband fell in love with Mojitos that night. The atmosphere is almost sports bar like and it was great because we were able to catch a few basketball games and football games.

If your the type of person that can really appreciate a dish containing steak and fish this is the place for your you. I never really ate steak at restaurants because they never prepare it just right. When the server returned with my dish I was beside myself. The look, taste, size and smell was perfect. I must admit; I... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food at CJ's crab shack. We did find that the ambience and atmosphere outside was much more pleasant than inside. People watching in a lovely area right next to the beach just added to the relaxing restaurant experience. Inside was very different though, it didn't seem to be in the... More
