My Wife & I had just finished checking into our hotel & was hungry after our flight. So, we decided to start strolling the famous Ocean Drive. We actually saw the place on one of those carts that people ride in parked right in front of the restaurant before noticing the actual restaurant. We were greeted & given a great... More

We went there after a long shopping day buy got excellent service and food. The crab cake was awesome and the crab salad a must order. Waiters were on their toes and gave us additional salad sauce when asked. Go there it is easy going and something you should taste.

This restaurant is a MUST if you're on Ocean Drive and you love seafood. Their food is extremely yummy and fresh. Prices are also reasonable. The owner is also super friendly. My personal fav. was the shrimp linguine (large portion, and the shrimps were HUGE). My friend got crab cakes and those were tasty as well.

We stopped in here on night pre-cruise, 9 of us for sea food and fun, the place was slow and we outlasted the other customers. Managers then cranked up the music as we took over the music player and the dance floor. What a great night.

Sometimes you get into a situation with friends that you need to grab a quick bite nearby and have no time to go to a place of your choice. Well this is what happened to me. This place is a pretty run down definition of a bit below average restaurant in every way. Let's not even mention the toilets... You... More

We had a very good meal here with excellent service. Most flavoursome crab cakes we have had in years so we had to order a second round! Also enjoyed the oysters, snow crabs, Cajun and garlic shrimps with pasta Alfredo. Fries were overdone in my opinion and that's why I have knocked a point off.

CJ's Crab Shack is A great place. The service was great. The food was Hot, and great taste to it. I'm a southern girl and most of the time restaurants don't have. Great taste to me. We sat outside of the restaurant and if it's cool they don't have any heat outside for you. But the food is worth staying... More

Chose this location based on its close proximity to the beach. The food was fresh and the taste well put together. However, we waited quite sometime for the food and one of the orders came out with sauce when it was supposed to be without. The server did not come by to check on our table or needs but 1... More

It's good enough that if you have to be stuck in Miami for the day, before catching your transatlantic flight in the evening,..." at least we can go to CJs Crab Shack !" ( And, no, I don't agree with the contributor who says it's not a patch on Joe's, we think it's better !) It didn't disappoint, The crab,... More

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.
