One of the staff members in the B&B where we stayed in Savannah recommended this place. We wanted something super casual and with seafood. This place met our needs. It was a crowded night when we arrived and we waited maybe 40 minutes for our table. There are 4 places to sit - at the bar, inside... read more

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!

We visited A-J's Dockside while staying on Tybee Island, GA. It was recommended by some folks that were staying at the same hotel as we were. It was a great experience after a long day of touring Savannah. It is aptly named as it sits right on the water well off of the main drag and quietly away from the... More

My husband and I ate here on our first night on Tybee. It was very very good! I had the fried flounder. It was excellent! My husband had the pork chop and he liked it. Boiled shrimp appetizer was very fresh as was the fish. Sign out front advertising the pineapple margarita did not disappoint. Will definitely come back!

We went on the recommendation of a shop owner in savannah. We had seen something on it and asked him. He liked it so much we were there about two hours later. It's a genuine local place that also "allows" tourists. Start to finish, everything was excellent. Food, drinks, service, views and atmosphere.

This place is perfect, not because the food is exceptional (it's fine), or because the wait staff is friendly (they are), or because the pineapple margarita hits the spot late in the afternoon after kayaking and beaching(it does). Perfection is in the feel of an afternoon breeze off the sea, light on the waves, bright umbrellas flapping, marsh grasses turning... More

The food was great. The place wasn't too busy when we arrived but had a lot of people waiting when we left. Our waitress was nice and did a great job. We felt a little bad for her though because the next table over were being unreasonable and fussing about everything under the sun. But she handled it very well.

Lunch was perfect...a crab burger, same as a crab cake...delicious...and the Pineapple Margarita hit the spot. Location at the end of a residential street yet private, right on the water.

3 of us got there and there was another group of people waiting outside to be seated, went inside and the girl sitting at counter was not overly friendly but seemed like she wanted to be done for the day, she let us know it would be a hour to a hour and a half wait, by this point we... More
