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

We had a good dinner here. Plenty of room and parking. The prices are in line with the other restaurants. Actually this one is cheaper. Good food

Thoroughly enjoyed everything we had at AJs. Husband and his friend were ready for some "real" food and both had hamburger steak with gravy and onions. I had fried shrimp and crabcake and my friend had the bone in fried chicken. Everything was very good and cheap...especially considering what we had spent at other locations throughout the week. Fried chicken... More

Seven of us stopped by for lunch and left stuffed and happy. While they no longer offer the buffet (except on Sunday), we were still thrilled with our lunch choices. Their chicken tenders are out of this world and so is the sweet tea. Very friendly service and definitely was the best fried chicken.

We go to AJ's every year when we vacation on St George Island. After eating seafood every night for a week we want something different and this is our favorite place to go. We get the buffet and it is amazing! We had fried chicken, pork chops, hamburger steak, mac and cheese, turnips, mashed potatoes and butter beans. Everything is... More

Soul food is the staple at this local hangout. Enjoyed the fried green tomatoes and fresh mullet. And I mean fresh. The fish tasted like it was just caught. Husband had the fried chicken and he was very pleased. Service was a bit slow but the staff was very friendly and genuinely nice. Pecan pie was delicious and the prices... More
