Good portions, great view, fantastic staff

My wife and I enjoyed our meals, but both felt that they were a bit over priced and under seasoned. The view and the staff however were both top notch!

Maybe I am a food snob, but I just was not impressed with anything here. It's your run of the mill coastal restaurant offering anything you an imagine fried. The service is a very

We had the fried shrimp and the Mahi Mahi Po'Boy. Casual atmosphere and good service. Right on the water. If you weren't looking for it, you would miss it! Highly recommend but bring your sunglasses! With it being right off the water, it can be bright at sunset!

My wife and I were greeted and seated outdoors immediately. However it took about 6 minutes before anyone came to take our drink orders. Our server cautioned us on the birds and that they could be pretty aggressive and they were! In fact one poor lady was crapped on by a bird! I have been to other beach and dockside... More

Ok, to be fair to AJ's, it was Memorial Day Weekend, Sunday evening to be exact. We arrived at 6:30pm. Was told it would be an hour and a half wait. So, we got their signature drink, a rum punch. Great drink. We then waited for two hours for a table. Yes, two hours. But, again, it was a holiday... More

Great food and service. Long wait so be prepared. Parking a real challenge. Evening view from the porch very nice. Live music was a nice feature but the performer seemed to only know ballads so it was a little tiring after a while. Less Simon & Garfunkle - more Allman Bros. This is the south after all.

The food and view at this restaurant makes it one of our favorites when we visit Tybee. The deck on the water is beautiful - if you're there when the sun sets you will get an awesome treat !

We stopped by for lunch and really enjoyed ourselves. The decor is fun, but more importantly, the food was great. Possibly the best fried shrimp on our trip...although we did not encounter any bad shrimp! For those who enjoy a little wind with their meal, the dock looked like a fun place!
