We visited this restaurant because of the gluten free options on the menu... and they didn't disappoint. The food was fantastic and so much choice. I would most definitely go again. The only downer was the realisation that we had been lied to. We stopped by to book a table on our way back to the hotel only to be... More

Called in for a pre-theatre dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was very friendly and the food very good indeed. I ate vegetable risotto - the best risotto I've had! Will be back next time we're in town for a show.

We read up on this before going to Blackpool and were impressed by the reviews given by other people. We were not let down!! We were greeted by Danni, front of house, and immediately made to feel welcome; she went through the menu with us and made some recommendations. The food was excellent, cooked and presented to an extremely high... More

We visited with a monster deal on a family holiday in Blackpool. It was very quiet when we were in but the food was fantastic and our waitress was very friendly, efficient and accommodating. Even at full price it would have been great value. The best meal we had in Blackpool by far.

As we were in Blackpool to see Mamma Mia, we decided to pop into AJ's to eat as we had dined here before and never been disappointed. We told the waitress that we were going to the theatre and she suggested the early bird menu as the best option to guarantee we had time to eat and not miss the... More

The food here was excellent, steaks were first class and cooked exactly as requested. Husband and wife run restaurant and seems a perfect place for a special meal, it is not a fast food place and everything is prepared when ordered. Very pleasant staff , although they could have done with an extra sever.

Asked to wait on a sofa at the "bar" area for 17 minutes. Wouldn't have been too bad if the restaurant was busy. There were two tables being served - one of 4 and one of 2. We were handed a menu each and left there. An older couple walked in and were asked to sit on the sofas too.... More
