Excellent sunset view over the Marsh. Very good food! Local waterfront charm. Enjoyed the experience. Would like more menu variety of seafood but everything we ordered was good.

While vacationing on Tybee Island, AJ's came highly recommended by a local property owner. We were so disappointed. There are only 5 parking spaces for the facility and once parked you hope that the next folks don't cut you out of being able to get back in. The restaurant was cold. The food was served lukewarm by staff that were... More

We met some friends at AJs while on Tybee Island. They are locals and took us here for the waterfront setting and fresh fish. We enjoyed the meal and the staff was fantastic -- friendly and accommodating. I had the daily fish special and it was tasty! It was a bit of a wait on a weekend night, but they... More

Great food, great staff, great setting. Do get the mouse cake for dessert. It is big enough to share with your stalemate. I had the crab cakes and Cole slaw. He had the flounder. Yum to everything.

The seafood last spring and very tasty. She crab soup good. Crab burger very tasty. My friends enjoyed the fried selections. Good attentive service. Ice tea was terrible. Save your money and just get water.

We had a difficult time deciding where to eat the particular night we went to AJ's. So glad we found this little gem! The food was fantastic especially the crap soup. It makes me wish I was there eating a bowl right now. There was live music that wasn't the best, but quaint and entertaining (not too loud, just the... More

Our family was staying on Tybee Island, so the best part about this restaurant is that it was close to our accommodations. Yet, it was also nice to have someone playing old 60's songs on a guitar while we ate some good seafood. NOTE: it seems like every restaurant played 60's music around the island...very strange. The cajun shrimp salad... More

I was so looking forward to a wonderful seafood meal. We had dined here a couple years ago on a vacation. Something has changed! We both had combination of 2 seafood meals. They weren't bad tasting but not yummy either. Just average. I thought the portions were small for the price and only one heater was working in the awning... More
