Booked a table whilst staying in Blackpool for the weekend and had read the reviews. Very warm welcome and nice atmosphere, not rushed at all throughout the evening. 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.

Had a fantastic meal, service excellent and pleasant atmosphere. As all the meals are cooked to order there is a little wait but it is worth it. We had a couple of requests for the chef no issues with toning down the spices. As we were on a short break it's fantastic when you can find such a good restaurant.... More

We were looking for somewhere different for our Christmas Day family meal and I have to say AJ's didn't disappoint. Half of our party suffer food allergies so it is quite difficult for us all to be able to eat what we like; having spoken to them beforehand the chef assured us it wouldn't be a problem and it certainly...

We are here on a Saturday night and enjoyed every mouthful as always. We had chicken livers and deep fried Camembert to start followed by fillet steak and lamb rump. Every mouthful was delicious and the portions were large as usual! Couldn't ask for nicer home cooked food and excellent service. Great food and great staff would highly recommend!

We had been to AJ's once previously and had a fantastic meal and experience. The staff are friendly and attentive. On this occasion the food was ok but not outstanding. However, there was a very reasonable reduction for my complaint about the Parma ham that wrapped a very nice monkfish. So well done AJ's for listening. My suggestion is for... More

Pleasant experience from start to finish. dips & a pitta for a starter: hot cheese dip was particularly memorable! Da Boss had duck, which was properly cooked (Pink), & I ate a decent pork chop. Fair-priced bottle of wine washed it all down... No room for pud, so can't comment I'm afraid. Intimate surroundings & not too busy, which was... More

And the kids had fantastic fresh meals of fish and chicken, the kids are still raving about it now! the only... More
