Lunch special for $9.95 is good if you looking for a quick bite (Grilled Chix Caesar Salad). Decided to also order the Conch Nuggets. They was to die for.. Good drink specials and love sitting outside eating.

We were walking by and decided to try their happy hour specials. All were excellent, we had oysters raw and cooked (both excellent), grouper fingers (WOW), calamari, (OK), and clams (excellent). The service was quick the food was all great and we are very happy we stopped in. We will return. Nice to eat outdoors.

My friend and I were looking for somewhere to eat at 1:00 am Saturday night and we saw the owners standing outside talking to people. They invited us to check out the menu and basically sold us on the fact that the food will live up to the hype. The food was amazing hands down. My friend had the grouper... More

Reasonable prices, great food, great atmosphere, great staff who make you feel like family! We ate here every night we were at the beach! Our last was New Year Eve we were provided head pieces, hats, necklaces and horns with free champagne when 12 o'clock hit! If we ever go back to Miami we definitely would return to CJ's Crab...

Went here for a dinner. Ordered few drinks as well. They don't have draft beer, only bottled. Drinks are pretty good here and service too. Waiter was very attentive and helpful. The food was medium - my snow crab was good, it came with a pasta as a side and it was huge. But my husband ordered lobster and it... More

Fantastic! Had fried shrimp and loved it. Got the lunch special so it wasn't as pricey as the menu shows. Probably one of the cheapest lunch places (under 10) if you stick with lunch portions. Go here!
