We learned of A-J's in a random conversation. A great place not highly advertised in the Tybee handouts. First, everyone was very friendly and our waitress was a lot of fun. The service was very good. Second, the atmosphere was great, sitting out on the deck / dock area watching the sun go down just added to the whole experience.... More

This was one of my go to spots all summer and fall. Great Buffalo Shrimp made with fresh, local Georgia shrimp. Beer is always cold and the views across to Little Tybee always changing with the tides and the seasons. I was never able to try anything else on the menu because these shrimp were so perfect and addicting! My... More

The food was good, but what I enjoyed most was enjoying a glass of wine on the dock as the sun set and listening to a live guitarist. So relaxing.

We've gone here for years on our vacations to Tybee - but the last time we visited stands out because of the great service. We were sitting outdoors and a sudden lightning storm rolled in and we had nowhere to go. They boxed up our order (about to come out) to go and added some free appetizers. We'll be back!... More

We went on a recommendation from the Surf Song B&B (see that review under hotel section). Parking was limited, even on a cold, slow night. We sat on the covered porch so we could enjoy the sunset view--great view across the river and marsh area. It was way too cold for us to sit on the open deck, but that... More

We happen to be here on the coldest night of the season. Fortunately, A-J heats its patio so we didn't suffer at all. The service was attentive and the main courses were excellent. I had a fried scallop/flounder combo with tasty mashed potatoes and sliced squash. My wife's rib eye was juicy and tasty.. Our server recommended the key lime... More

Choices in Tybee aren't extensive. We visited this place last year, it was excellent. This year, not so much. I got the deviled crab dinner. It was okay. The hush puppies were actually really good. They switched waiters on us twice through out the dinner. Also, the greeter wasn't the friendliest. She sat in a chair at the door and... More

We had lunch at AJ's and we enjoyed our meal and the view. We sat outside on the dock, the weather was fantastic and our food was good too. We had an appetizer and two entrees, the waitress was very friendly and attentive. Would return there anytime.
