My husband and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary and we visited C.J.'s for the very first time. We just happened to find them on Google bc I love seafood. I got the Fisherman's platter with shrimp, grouper, crab cake, scallops & fries. My husband got Alaskan crabs & shrimp. The food was good but the service was impeccable! The... More

Go with an empty belly and deep pockets. While the food isn't the cheapest on the busy sea front of Ocean Drive, it certainly is fresh and filling! Sit indoors or take in the people walking by outside. Good bar and large array of seafood based choice on the menu. Meals are very tasty and CJs is worth a visit... More

Visited here after a recommendation. Glad I did! One of the best meals I have ever eaten based on flavour and fun. Took a while to get into the crab legs and was a bit messy but there was no stopping me! The crab meat was sweet and juicy, the crab cake sensational. The corn cob was amazing. My cocktail... More

I ordered snow crabs and alfredo pasta.The alfredo pasta was amazing. The snow crabs were plenty bland, no seasoning. The prices are pretty reasonable. I think I spent $26. Our waitress was pretty slow considering the restaurant wasn't busy. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to my friends .

I would like to give a special shout out to Brooks for the excellent service. Us girls arrived around noon expecting oysters but was informed they didn't have any and to make up for it, we were given complimentary drinks. The seafood is delicious, especially the clams! We went back later that day for more (told you, the food is... More

We had Crab and Shrimps, both really good. Staff was super friendly. Big recommendations if you're looking for seafood. Price matches. Valet Parking reasonable with 15$ in front of restaurant. Restaurant inside seating has no special atmosphere but is ok. For Crab we'll come back.

Thank Alexander Z
