Great vibe, great food. Great local musicians. I ate there twice on a 4 day trip! Get there early to get the best view of the sunset on the island. I recommend the scored flounder with chili lime sauce. Very tasty! You want fresh seafood? Go to A J's!

It's a bit chilly to be on the dock today, but the food more than made up for it. Had their restaurant week special with Crab Stew and Crispy Founder with sweet chili sauce and key lime pie! Betty was very personable and her service was great.

My husband and I had a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised. I had the fried shrimp and the crab stew and both were very good, but I did miss the hush puppies, maybe they come with dinner. The restaurant is located back in a residential area but the food was worth the search. We eat out back and my... More

Great deck out back to eat on as the sun goes down. Nice live music inside. My son loved the buffalo shrimp. Really nice atmosphere.

The meal was delicious and the service was solid. Our server was quick, knowledgable, and not over bearing. The food was fresh and cooked perfectly. The only slight negative was the boiled shrimp I had were slightly small, making peeling them a little difficult. They were, however, cooked correctly (just pinked) and hot. Cold beer, good margarita, and fantastic key... More

My husband and I had come to Savannah for New Year's night and decided to go to Tybee Island. We decided instead of fighting the crowds in downtown Savannah for a place to eat, we would try A J's. We had heard it was worth trying so we did and did not regret our decision. The seafood was excellent. They... More

We had an excellent meal here! My wife loved her ribeye, and my flounder, scallops, and shrimp were amazing! Not much parking but the food more than makes up for that!

This restaurant was recommended by The Desoto Beach front desk and it was a fun night. Worth the wait. In spite of the pouring rain we had a nice dinner and saw the judging of the sweater contest. Did not really see outside due to weather and it was already dark. Food was good. Service was fast and would love... More

A-J's Dockside Restaurant was hopping about 6:30 when we arrived and the place was full. Still, we decided to wait, and I am very glad we did. I read another review where someone said that the Crab Stew was "to die for." No, the Crab Stew is to LIVE for. Ohhh, it was so very good, it makes me shake... More

Great views from the back deck. Decent beer selection and the food menu fits the vibe of the place laid back and casual. The wings are very good as is the boiled shrimp. Great place to stop in and enjoy a nice afternoon on the deck
