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

Based on the #4 ranking here on TripAdvisor, we decided to give this a try. Admittedly, we came early in the evening service (a little after 4 PM), but we thought that might be an advantage, as they wouldn't be as busy just yet. When we walked in, the place was empty, except for a couple folks apparently waiting for... More

Oh my goodness!! What a delight this find was to our family. It was seriously some of the best fried chicken I have ever had. My husband had the hot wings and they were also fabulous. The service was outstanding and the atmosphere was wonderful. We would love to return one day!!

The best fried chicken & mashed potatoes I've had since my grandmother's. The daily specials are soul food at it's very best. If you are anywhere near Apalach, do yourself a favor and stop!

AJ's belongs to the residents. Nothing fancy but comfort food. Try the hot wings or other chicken entree. You won't be disappointed.
