    Once again another lovely meal at CJ's. Have never not enjoyed ourselves when we come here, Mel our waitress was amazing! We were already discussing what we'll order next time on our way home!

    Staff were fantastic especially with our toddler running around and not wanting to be in her seat.

    Awesome service and friendly staff. Food was great and quick. Drink refilled straight away. Only down fall no choice of what sauce you would like with the seafood in the hot and cold seafood platter . Would have preferred chili and garlic instead of butter. Also had to ask for lemon to squeeze over our seafood platter. 4. out of 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Have wanted to come here for years for the seafood, so brought the family for a special birthday dinner, what a shame the seafood was really poor quality, ordered the seafood platter for 2 at $180 but the prawns had black stuff on them like they were really old and it all just tasted bland and very unfresh. Definitely won’t be coming back as we were all quite unwell about an hour afterwards.

    CJ's Crab Shack & Grill

    Hi Sandra, Its disappointing to read that your visit wasn't what we aim to provide. We have raised your concerns with our team and will be following up with our suppliers and team to ensure that everything is fresh and flavourful.

    Although we had 50% off food, it wasnt enough to rate the food any higher. For the entrees we had: cheeseburger spring rolls, fried gherkins, fried jalapeno poppers and fried cheese and mac balls. They were all quite bland besides the jalapeno poppers. IMO the fried pickle wouldve been nicer if the pickles were sliced not a whole baby one. Then my partner and I shared the seafood bucket with singapore chilli flavouring and a greek salad. The flavouring tasted NOTHING like Singapore chilli and had a curry taste to it. The seafood was definitely not fresh and had a watery taste to it. Usually crabs and lobster have this sweetness to it that I didnt even taste. This was disappointing and top of that, the Greek Salad was VERY bland too. Not much dressing and no acidity. We didnt complain but ate for the sake of filling our empty stomachs but was quite disappointing so I hope this feedback can help the team in future. Last of all, the front of house staff were amazing and was consistently check up on us.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have discussed the concerns you have raised with our team and will follow up with our suppliers to ensure that everything is as good as it can be.

    Dirty seating and crockery made this disappointing. Bench seating uncomfortable. One dish brought out burnt and we had to ask for it to be replaced

    Would highly recommend coming here! CJ's is within Penrith Panthers RSL so you'll need to sign in to enter which is quick and easy. We ordered Jalapeno Poppers and Scallops for entree and the CJ's Combo in Singapore Chilli sauce. Jalapeno Poppers were made well with a good slice of jalapeno and enough cheese to balance it out. The scallops were nicely cooked with a lot of cheese but not overpowering. The best dish was the CJ's Combo. The sauce was AMAZING. Even though it wasn't as chilli as we would've preferred, you can ask for fresh chillies. But the sauce alone was delicious. Service at CJ's was amazing as well- they really look after you. We had good conversation with 2 of the workers. Would definitely recommend coming here, and it's even better that it's out West so we don't have to travel too far for a good seafood place! And another bonus is we booked with the 50% off bill deal so that was even better!

    Thanks for the great review. Its great that you had an incredible experience with us. We can't wait to see you all again soon!

    Food was excellent, even for my picky-eater of a wife and MIL. Would definitely return. Too bad arrived at 6:32pm and had to pay full price.. otherwise we could've saved $150 bucks. Try to make it before 6:30pm for the half price promo, then it'll be 10/10 for sure

    CJ's Crab Shack & Grill

    Thanks for your feedback. It's great that you had a great time and enjoyed yourselves. Our Promotion offer has some great value. Hope to see you again for it soon.
