Ordered the Cajun Combo dinner which had a pound of snow crab, a few pieces of Cajun shrimp and a crab cake. We drank Miami Vices the entire time and they were served with a tube shot of alcohol! The snow crab is amazing there! Best meal I had for seafood in South Beach! Pricey but well worth the food.... More

Food was good. Drinks reasonably priced. On ocean drive needed music to muffle all the conversations.

Our server was a part of the family business and knew the entire menu like the back of his hand! He gave us great suggestions! I loved the Miami Vice frozen cocktail and the Sex on the Beach. My boyfriend ordered oysters Rockefeller stuffed with crabmeat and the 2lb King Crab entree. Being vegan there weren't many options but I... More

There are so many wonderful things that I can say about this establishment! AWESOME staff, family-oriented, very welcoming! The food is PHENOMENAL! You have to try the crab cake and mashed sweet potatoes. They also have great signature drinks! I visited on my birthday and the staff caught wind of this and surprised me with a cake and ice cream!... More

We had dinner here and it was amazing! Great prices and great portions. We were very pleased with both of our meals (crab dinner and oysters). There was no wait either and we were there on a Saturday early evening.

This is a typical ocean drive restaurant. I knew going there that the food would be pricey, While the waitress was pleasant,the service was mediocre. The quality of the dishes served, although big were average at best. We ordered 2 meals but were served only one. Fortunately I ordered the Fisherman's platter which was big enough to share with my... More

We took two kids to CJs for dinner. One is a particularly fussy eater - she loved their pasta! The rum punch was fab, the souvenir cup with discounted refills was too good to refuse. Crab was sweet and tasty. Seafood pasta was amazing!

The food was extremely good, well seasoned, and came in large portions. We were immediately talked into add ons, and I imagine it's because of automatically added 18% gratuity. Overall, we loved the food and location.
