The bar tender was really quick at taking orders. The drinks were good. We had a party of nine and waited... read more

Menu is limited. Over priced for the ambience of the rest. Basic food. We left before ordering. The server was great!

Loved the view from the dock. The wait staff were first class and friendly. Some of the best seafood we ever had.

Food was really well prepared and tasted fantastic. Beautiful river and marsh views with I think the only sunset view for a restaurant on the island. We had to wait about an hour but it was worth it.

The view , the view , the view. The view of the sunset makes this place a must eat place while in Tybee. Get there before sunset and enjoy some good fried seafood. Nothing really fancy but good food.

We stopped in for an early dinner and we were craving fried seafood. We got the triple platter and I got an extra deviled crab. It was all excellent! Sitting on the deck overlooking the marsh and dining on seafood - life is good.

I was looking forward to some great seafood and cold beer. What I got was a deck filled with birds stealing food off your plate and the seafood being so over priced you hated to order it. Most people were getting appetizers and beer. I knew once I glance at the menu. $18 for a basket of fries and fried... More

A-J Dockside restaurant is an out of the way treasure on Tybee island. It is small but has a ton of character & really good seafood & a friendly staff. Nothing fancy here, but by the number of locals eating here you tell you are in the right place for sure.

Stayed on Tybee Island when visiting Georgia this time. Looking for good seafood and A-J's Dockside was highly recommended. My Husband and I went to A-J's on our last night of vacation......Loved, Loved, Loved the food and service. Chose the Cruncy Scored Founder served with a spicy-sweet chily sauce. The whole founder is served (minus the head) with garlic mased... More
