    The food quality was really good just the amount of food to the price was not ok, not enough food for the price, I wish there was more seafood in the fisherman’s basket not just one piece of what was stated

    The seafood platter was fresh and delicious. My cocktail was generous and very nice. Great lunch! The service was good and food was in a good time.

    Great atmosphere with the wonderful local lorikeets flying nearby. Setting was very nice on water feature. Food was good and service was very good. Will definitely go again.

    Seafood Combo so saturated with sauce there was no texture. Window open at adjacent table without asking for other patrons permission as it was a cold night.

    Nice staff most of the food was fine it was just the seafood platter some of it was still frozen and if you want lobster without cheese you can’t get that option as it was covered in Mornay which has cheese and you have no choice even if you are lactose intolerant such as my son other than that it’s okay

    Food was good, quickly seated with friendly staff. Food arrived quickly and was good. Pricing was decent and proportions were good size. Nice restaurant.

    Have been to CJ's before and will continue to go back as the food, the restaurant and the staff are amazing. Not only that but they (and Penrith Panthers) are really fantastic with assistance dogs, you and your puppa are made feel totally welcome.

    Entree - calamari was too small. Main Hit and cold seafood with a salad was good to share

    The welcome and service was fantastic as usual. The food was delicious! Tried the cheeseburger spring rolls and was not disappointed. The brisket burger was enormous and juicy. 5 stars!

    The Seafood Platter we ordered are excellent but the sweet potato chips is not crisp...unlike the 1st time we’ve been there...like been soaked to Oil...not happy. But Seafood Platter is the Best! We will still comeback definitely!

    We had a good relaxing dinner. The fresh oysters were fantastic however our Crab Shack platter for two was very poor quality. The crab was not good quality and not very fresh. It was difficult to hear each other over the noise in the restaurant and it wasn’t packed so it must get a lot worse when they are busy. The staff were friendly and helpful . All in all we enjoyed out night even though the food was a let down and expensive for the lack of quality. We wouldn’t return any time soon.

    Staff are amazing. Environment was super clean, tidy & spacious. Food ... not fantastic, chicken wings & schnitzel tasted a lot like seafood (May have been cooked together) - I’m not a seafood eater my partner is. She thought the Garlic shrimp hot pot was fantastic.

    Absolutely one of the best seafood restaurants I’ve been to due to affordability, atmosphere and overly generous portions that don’t go unappreciated and can’t be rivalled. Staff were lovely also which is rare for restaurants which top quality seafood, as I’ve learnt in the past. I will definitely be visiting again if and when I return to NSW.

    It was lovely to be here during the day for lunch. Nice ambience and view over the water features. The meals were nice but not on par with the last visit which was in 2019. overall, well priced and worth the visit. nothing like a bucket full of seafood!!

    This is the first time I’ve been to CJ’s crab shack and grill and I really enjoyed it! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and attentive and the portion sizes were generous. I also loved the decor in the venue.
