AJ's doesn't disappoint again!

Repeat visit with a larger group including several teenagers. Looking for great food without breaking the bank. Yet again, AJ's was the place!

We come down to St George Island at least once a year. AJ's is a must eat here for us my mother and my wife instist. It is just plan good food. I personally think they have the best Burgers and Chicken in the area. They are off the normal path as others have said. but just ask anybody and... 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

Ny sister just moved to Apalachicola and I decided to come down and see the town for myself. I stayed for 5 days and must say that out of every where that I went, Ajs was simply the friendliest and best place in the entire town. Don't let the location fool you or steer you away from some of simply... More

Read the good reviews and decided to try the place out. We went on a Thursday night and the place was almost empty. when we ordered drinks they were out of the lemonade drink my daughter wanted so she decided on sprite, they were out. The pop was cans so I was surprised they couldn't run down the street and... More

Don't miss AJ's! They make the best fried chicken in about a 200 mile radius! They have a daily buffet that always features their chicken as well as other Southern-cooked items. This is a good place for lunch and dinner. The service is always friendly, quick, and pleasant. You may have to wait just a bit for your chicken (about... More
