A little gem tucked away near Blackpool North train station. Excellent a la carte dining, great menu choice and good, unhurried service. Perfect for a special occasion or just a lovely relaxed meal.

We are here on a Saturday evening and as always loved it. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and polite. It was busy with a good atmosphere. We had pate and chicken livers to start, followed by lamp rump and duck a l'orange. Would highly recommend 😃

Food nice but nothing special, not good. value for money. Stuffed mushrooms (3 very small mushrooms) swimming in a sauce with slice of Brie over the top. Steaks nice but Mexican sauce... More

We paid a repeat visit to AJ's during a recent stay in Blackpool just after Christmas, looking forward to returning to the place we discovered 12 months previously. As last time, unfortunately the place was disappointingly quiet for a Saturday night, but this did not detract from the excellent service and food we enjoyed. The menu is varied, the food... More

We visited AJs with family and friends on New Years Eve. Although our booking was early evening the atmosphere was lovely and the service could not have been better. We all enjoyed the food and the bill didn't hurt. We have today recommend it to a couple visiting Blackpool this weekend.
