Yummy and Quaint

It was delicious...and the atmosphere was wonderful. It is small and quaint. There was entertainment on the porch, which they were keeping warm since it was a cold night. The service was great. You can tell they are seasoned pro's and take care of each of their guests. I thought my work mate... read more

We reached there in time but whatever we ordered was not available and then finally the cook left for the day so we got nothing to eat. The waitress was kind of lost in her own world she did random things, like she started clearing the plates from our table while we were eating. Really weird place.

This is a no frills place. You can get a table on the dock or inside. There is also a covered patio if that is your style. The breeze off the water is great and we love to sit on the dock at sunset. The food is mostly fried but they will do grilled if requested. I love the grilled... More

The food here was okay, usual fried type seafood etc, but if you want to catch a beautiful sunset and dine on the dock, this is a great place. We enjoyed it.

Well we came here, the wait was too long! So we went to the new restaurant they just built (Aj's Oceanside) I did not see a place to review yet! So I am reviewing on this spot. They both have the crab stew and it's really good. The fried fish is excellent and the shrimp was the best I had... More

The food was good, we had the salmon with spinach sauce and the conch appetizer....yum. The view of the dock was unexpected; Why? The birds, there were a variety of water fowl that graced the area. We were in a tent, so we were not disturbed.

When you are the only restaurant facing the bay side, it is easy to claim the best view. This is a hot spot favorite of the local population and it took me four tries to get a seat and discover what the attraction was. Never did find any good reason for the adoration. The service was average, the food was... More

Staying on the island so this was easy to find - and am glad we did. You can eat inside, or on a covered porch, or out on the dock. We chose the porch and loved it. Kate was our perky (but not smarmy) server. Was attentive with the food, the wine, and the bill. We both had the special,... More

AJ's was recommended to us by a local merchant and it was a good find. I say find because it is so off the beaten path you'd never know it was here. Almost like a place where only the locals know about as it is tucked in among houses in a neighborhood. The interior is a mashup of dock themes... More

AJ's is a local seafood favorite. The food was good and worth the drive to tybee island. I would suggest sitting inside to eat. The dock side eating is difficult because of the birds looking for an opportunity to get food and maybe right off your plate.
