Awesome Food & Atmosphere!!!!

My wife and I went there on Valentine's Day weekend. The wait was a bit long but we knew we were in for a treat when they handed out conch shells to hold your place in line. I had the shrimp and scallops and they were cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. With it being... read more

I loved that they had Conch Fritters and Kalik Beer. They even had a Bahamian flag. The place to go for sunset viewing. Gets busy and parking is a little tough.

A.J.'s has indoor and outdoor dining. Start with a watermelon margarita. Yes, it is wonderful. Then, any of the seafood is great. The salads are fresh. Boats, kayaks, jet skis pull to the dock and people are in swimsuits, t-shirts and it is very casual. Go watch the sunset and have another watermelon margarita!

Food was excellent. Had a short wait but that is understandable. Had a hard time finding location due to the 2nd restaurant opening up soon. My GPS couldn't find it.

We rode our bikes here and were sat immediately. Then we met our waitress and she really seemed to be disinterested in our meal. How could I tell? Because she was sitting on the other end of the restaurant eating her own lunch. She only stopped by to ask us how our food was when she went back to the... More

This off the beaten path restaurant on Tybee Island offers some of the best food the city has to offer. My husband and I found this little place this weekend and gave it a try. The restaurant is in a residential area, located on the river on Tybee, and worth seeking out. We had the crispy scored flounder with a... More

When I visited A-J's the staff was a little bit rushy, so it seemed like they wanted us to hurry and leave even though they weren't very busy. Since we felt like we were in the way we just decided to order two beers and an appetizer, no entrees. We ended up getting the hot artichoke dip and tortilla chips.... More

We tried both the gumbo and the jambalaya and shared so we could both try both dishes. Both were good, but I have had much better. Their homemade spicy sauce is very good and added to the flavor of the gumbo. We certainly don't regret going, but I will try another place next trip.

We ate here our first night here. The shrimp and fried oysters were lightly breaded and fried to perfection. I can't wait to go back!

Had the best Dirty Martinis, Shrimp n grits, Key Lime Pie, and sunset ever!!!! Loved having the heater outside on the covered porch during a cool January night. We'll go back!
