Awesome food, awesome portions, awesome prices!

Great food and awesome portions for a low price. I had pork chops with macaroni and cheese. The pork chops were HUGE! The macaroni and cheese was DELICIOUS! Our sweet server Deja was great. Loved it!

I agree with the reviewers who like the place! Wide variety of food, which is scary sometimes! But, we've tried the burgers, fries, fried chicken, wings and sides like Mac and cheese and greens. I go here to take my teenagers because of the selection, and one is a vegetarian so she's got seafood, salad and lots of vegetables to... More

Not difficult to find but not located in the "town" of Apalachicola. It is a neighborhood restaurant that serves fresh seafood and golden fried chicken. Expect to wait 20 minutes for your fried chicken. It is not cooked ahead. We each had the 4 pcs of chicken with fried ocra and onions rings with very good sweet iced tea. The... More

Repeat visit with a larger group including several teenagers. Looking for great food without breaking the bank. Yet again, AJ's was the place! Not terribly busy on a Tuesday night so we were seated immediately and ordered drinks. Several got sweet tea (they have a full bar, but we had enough for the day!) and commented that it was terrible...not... More

I've eaten here many times, and the fried chicken is always great, and cooked to order. Crispy and tender. They have a nice buffet for Sunday brunch. It varies every week but usually features things like greens, mac and cheese, yams, etc. The cobbler is always good. It's a down-home southern restaurant that many local people enjoy. But friends who... More

We are never disappointed when coming to Aj's. Food is always good, but hands down the best wings in Franklin county. Friendly staff.

This is the place locals go to in Apalachicola for fried chicken and barbecue. Located off the beaten path, in a part of town mostly populated with black folks, most tourists would not stumble upon it. Wait staff is very friendly, service good, food is good.

This is a hidden jewel. It's off the beaten path but we'll worth the rerouting. It's in a neighborhood and it's pretty simple. No fancy outside facades. Inside it's open and spaced out. We were there on a Saturday night and there was a modest crowd, but plenty of room for more. Our waitress was Megan. She was really good.... More

We stopped in for chicken wings and shrimp. Both were really good. We also tried their home fries (battered French Fries) also good. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. This place is a little off the beaten path but do not be fooled it is well worth the visit. Our visit was on a Thursday night. They were not... More
