Not close to the quality of Joe's Stone Crabs but about the same price. Nice location. Sneaky inclusion of 16.5% "service fee". Almost double tipped. Very annoying.

Stopped in Miami on the way to Antigua and went to South Beach for dinner and to walk around. Read multiple reviews on this place and was kind of skeptical after reading the negative reviews but we decided to disregard the bad reviews and see for ourselves. We are glad we did! The food was great and the drinks were... More

This resturant caught my daughters eye as we started walking down Ocean Dr. We Sat on the patio, although we waited a little bit before being served. It was worth the wait. We had the fried shrimp with alfrado, and a frozen cocktail. It was a pleasant experince. A little pricey for what we had, but given its location I... More

If you are strolling the Drive and just want to take a load off, people watch, have a drink and a snack at a reasonable price (considering it is South Beach) this is a good place. It is not the party scene like some on the Drive but it is still in the action. We really liked all the different... More

My family and I were in South Beach 1/16/17. We've been wanting a good lobster and crab dinner so we waited until we got to South Beach. We saw good reviews for CJ's Crab Shack, so we went there for dinner. We were in luck this particular night because they had a lobster special so we all ordered lobster tails,... More

We were looking for seafood after checking in at our hotel in South Beach. This was the closest to our hotel according to Trip advisor. It was average at best. Not over priced but all food was of average quality. Most food was too oily and fried too long. Cocktails were weak, almost like they forgot to put in the... More

If you're in Miami and like seafood make sure you try this place. Its delicious. My fav place... More

Saw the reviews on here for CJ's Crab Shack and just had to go, love seafood and what better place, sat in the sun on Ocean Drive. I had the lobster and shrimps which was to die for, my wife had the crab salad and her facial expression said it all on the first taste, she loved it, thoroughly recommend

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we decided to try this place out, and we both are glad. Nothing fancy, inside pretty much deserted, but it was the day after New Year's. Outside tables stayed fairly busy. Oysters Rockefeller for a starter, then I had the Fishermans' platter with a bit of everything, better half had the Scallops. Both were very good.... More
