Good country cooking!

The chicken, green beans and mac n cheese was a wonderful change from all the seafood we have had in the area. Portions were large, more than we could finish. Service was very good as well.

Despite a lot of other great reviews about the food here, we found it just so-so, and the service was really lacking. The people were very nice, just not very good at handling the few customers that were in the place. We waited too long for our food (though our server apologized for that), and for our check. The food... More

This is exactly as advertised, neighborhood bar & grill. The food is down home souther. There is nothing glitzy or urban about it, just good food at a good price. There are many places around here that do seafood great. This place does it OK, the fried oysters I had were very good, but I usually don't eat them fried.... More

When we saw the reviews of the fried chicken, we had to check it out. We've had fried chicken at most of the national reputation places, and AJ's doesn't take a backseat to any of them. This is the fried chicken you would make at home if you were really, really good: no fancy ingredients or special tricks, just perfectly... More

Have always meant to go to A.J.s in Apalach. It's on what the call the hill, kind of out of the way in a poorer part of Apalachicola. But don't be fooled. Just as one cannot tell the content of a book by its cover, one will never experience the delicious fried chicken served at A.J.'s unless they wander off... More

This was our second time eating here. The first time we came we were a little nervous, as the place is located in a neighborhood, not downtown, and is very basic on the outside. The inside is large with booths running along the outside walls, and tables scattered around. There is a bar I. The center. TV's hang on a... More

We weren't sure about this place when we pulled up. We decided to give it a whirl and were glad we did. In a nutshell, the fried green tomatoes were good, the hush puppies were the best we've ever eaten and the seafood was fresh and well cooked. Not much in the way of atmosphere, and only one kind of... More

Once again not let down by trip advisor. This place doesn't look like much on the outside or the inside. But trusted the good reviews. We had a great server and the food was really good. Portion sizes were average. But we didn't leave hungry. We would def try this place again.

I must admit that I am guilty of judging a book by its cover. When we arrived at AJ's nondescript restaurant, I was tempted to turn around and find another place for the last dinner of our vacation. It was late and our large group was tired, so we decided to give it a try. Things didn't improve when we... More

Was on Vacation July 2014 in Apalachicola and decided to give AJ's a try...so glad we did! My husband and I had an appetizer of the breaded and fried potato logs which were FANTASTIC! Then we shared the 2-grilled pork chop plate with Baked Beans and Macaroni and Cheese. Both pork chops on the plate were nice size and very... More
