LITTLE GEM ON THE BACKSIDE

décor is quaint, preparing you for a standard seafood experience, but it isn't. been here four times and never been disappointed with the food. at sunset, bring the OFF for the no se'ums or eat inside. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!

We came here first as soon as we got to the island! Everyone recommended the crab shack but looking at the reviews this place got our vote! My husband and I are sea food lovers and we both admit that this was some of the best fried shrimp we ever had! The sweet potato fries were unreal!! I would definitely... More

My husband and I eat at AJ's about three times a year. We love their burgers, fried fish sandwiches, and specialty drinks. The view is priceless, the staff is nice, the food is great, and the drinks are good!

We were looking for somewhere low key after a few long days in Savannah. This place was recommended by locals and was within walking distance to our house. The wait was pretty long, which we expected. We found a seat at the bar and really enjoyed dinner. Both bartenders were super friendly. The drinks were tasty (try the Pineapple Margarita).... More

We ended up here during a major thunderstorm so, to be fair, they were operating on a generator. With this in mind, the food and service was underwhelming at best. We may try it again but unlikely.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch on the deck at AJ's. The Conch fritters were amazing as were the fried shrimp and scallops. Service was great too, the staff is super friendly and take good care of you. The view was just beautiful. Sometime we need to go at sunset as we were told that they have one of the best... More

Tried AJ's on the advice of one of our tour guides in Savannah. The Buffalo Shrimp was fantastic (and I'm not a big shrimp fan) seasoned just right and cooked perfectly. I really enjoyed the Gumbo, but my wifes fish (Corvina) was excellent. Covered with crab meat and the sauce was a great compliment to the very mild white fish.

Wish we'd know this hidden jewel was just down the street from our cottage sooner! The gumbo was great, the watermelon margarita was so yummy & make sure to save room for the 6 layer chocolate cake that is to die for! Patio seating & live music by the water made this a perfect night! Be sure to stop by... More

Had a great breakfast one morning, out on the dock, beautiful views of the area and wildlife. Another day had a tasty hamburger cooked perfectly. The waitress suggested a pineapple margarita - it was delicious and refreshing. Staff was very nice, we had a great experience there :) My relatives LOVED their Bloody Marys too!
