Stopped in just on a whim to grab something to eat. Could not have chosen a better place to end a vacation. Be prepared because it is expensive but this is one of those places that you certainly get what you paid for. Ample portions, fresh seafood and quality service. Didn't try the frozen drinks or the crabcakes but CJ's... More

Just letting you guys know this place is very expensive, as well as all the other places on south beach.... Other than that the waiter was very nice, he came by frequently to see if we were ok (my fiancé and I) the food did take some time to come to us, but I think it was worth the wait.... More

We ate here on our first night in Miami the seafood was great and the frozen drinks are awesome. Get the souvenoir cup and go back for refills that you can walk around the strip and enjoy

We ordered a variety of seafood and loved everything (I ordered the crab legs with pasta Alfredo). The location is perfect and right in all of the action, but indoor seating is available if you want a more quiet experience.

We ate here the last night of our Miami stay and were more than pleased. From the variety of dishes to the portions EVERYTHING was GREAT! We told the waiter that we were starving and he brought out garlic bread that was the best ever! The fresh seafood was OUTSTANDING. Will definitely come again.

Had a terrible dinner there last night and to top it off they added an extra $20 to our bill that we didn't authorise as they had already charged us gratuity. They let us sign for the bill and then added this extra money without our consent at the till. Absolutely disgusting behaviour.

I recently visited CJ's with my girlfriend. We decided to sit down because we saw an offer for a fillet minon 8oz or ribeye 12oz for $25 which we decided to settle for after looking about for quite some time. We sat down, ordered drinks and ordered our food. We ordered 2 Ribeye steaks - medium. The steaks came and... More

We had the lobster special that comes with a lobster tail, five grilled, and pasta Alfredo for $35.00 The food tasted very good. Service was ok; but that was because there were only one or two servers outside. Our waiter was very friendly, but he was very busy.. It took a long time to get the check. The tables on... More

Got in for a late lunch and the service was average but the kitchen very slow. The prices seemed high but the fish tasted good and was not overcooked. Lunch for 3 with just soda and tip ran $150 thus the reason for indicating prices are a touch high, but that just might be South Beach prices. Next trip back... More
