View is nice, but the food sucks. It was really expensive. My lady friend drank some wine, and I had a beer. The food took forever to come. The waiter? Where is he???? I would not go back.

This restaurant has a nice location on the Marina. It has indoor and outdoor seating, and often live music outdoors. The food is good, but you pay extra for the location. A bit over priced.
The waiter was friendly and efficient, but had little to no knowledge about wine.
Over all a nice dining experience.

You just feel so relaxed showing up at CJ's on the Marina, just a beautiful back drop. We were just looking around checking things out in Marco and decided to stop by for a look. We loved the location and had a few drinks and decided to get take out for my Mother-In-Law and for the kids. from what we hear, the fish and chips and kids selections were very good. The service is also very good at the bar - although they had us go inside to order the take out (not a big deal). I would definitely recommend this place for at least a few drinks at sunset!

While visiting my son who just moved to Marco Island, we went to CJ's for a drink and sat at the outside bar. It was lightly raining, but once in their covered area, it was a nice atmosphere. We ended up ordering appetizers out there and shared a carafe of sangria, which was pretty good. The bartenders were all friendly and attentive. We got a lot of local information and Patty recommended a local Jet-ski trip, which we booked the next day and loved! (we highly recommend Capt. Ron's Everglades Adventure). The sunset from our seats was beautiful!
