CJ's is a family owned business in an excellent location and we really wanted to like it...but we didn't. Three of us ate there recently, we were served by Carlos who was great with advice from the menu, but the food itself didn't live up to the promise. We had a starter of wings to share, three fish mains all... More

Came here on Tripadv. reviews as wanted to have oysters and crab. Our order of oysters was brought first wrong, and had not finished the oysters as they brought the mains. The meal was over in one hour! Paid $104 for a terrible meal on plastic dish. The staff has no professionalism or sense. Do not eat here!

Went here based on Yelp reviews. Met the owner, CJ, who is very personable. It's a family run place...you'll see his nieces and nephews working there...Food was good and prices were reasonable.

I cannot say enough about this amazing South Beach location. My honey and I are dwellers and like to find a place or two on vacation that call us back. Well, we found it at CJ's. We were in South Beach for our tenth anniversary. We were here for four days before we stumbled upon CJ's. We had spent a... More

Good menu and good selection. My only complain was I ordered the crab and spinach for starter. I was expecting a healthy starter and it came coated in cream, with the spinach totally overpowering the crab

Great food and service. Eric the waiter could not do enough for us. One of our best dinning experiences on South Beech - The food and service was 5 star. Regretfully the toilets are at the back via corridors and in a poor condition - This will prevented us going back there again

We were in SoBe for the day after coming to the area from Mississippi for the Orange Bowl. Our Party consisted of five people. My wife and I, two fourteen year old eating machines(boys), and our 10 year old daughter. We all absolutely loved the food! Good sized portions and very fairly priced. The service was exceptional and friendly! Sitting... More
