Miami New Times's Description
Despite its location at the center of the tourist universe, CJ's feels like a hole in the wall that you might find on a beach in Clearwater. The ambiance is perfect for unwinding; the outside has shell-adorned mirrors hanging from the walls while flat screens peep out from second floor windows. After sunset, tea-light lanterns are brought out while Jack Johnson or Bob Marley plays over the speakers. If you are more of an indoor person, head to the second floor bar where funky murals and stained glass windows give the space a red-orange glow. The area in front of the stage has large, lounge-like couches and seating while simpler high-tops are scattered throughout the rest of the space. A juke box, dart boards, and pool table add to the lounge's hidden treasure vibe.
Tips from foursquare
If you like too have a good time and get really drunk this is the place for you.See Carlos or Kyle they will take care of you.
Best seafood in Dade county. Staff treat you like family.
Don't let the atmosphere worry you. Our server was indifferent and it felt like we were in an old sports bar for has-beens, but the surf n turf was good. Lobster and filet were tender.
The new brighter design inside is great. Love the new booths!! 10 out of 10!
Best seafood on South Beach. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but the seared tuna, crab cakes and king crab is to die for!
