Awesome bar and restaurant, offering terrific seafood, salads, burgers and cocktails. Enjoy the awesome views of the boats and water as you leisurely dine on the deck. If you are in a hurry, you are in the wrong place, as it's casually southern. Well worth an hour or two of your time sitting... read more

My family came to Tybee and realized AJ's was literally a block from our rental! The food and staff were AMAZING!!! It was so good AJ's quickly became the family favorite!

We came here based on the reviews of others and were not disappointed. We really wanted to sit outside and take in the views, but it was unbelievably hot, humid AND windy! So we ate in the covered patio area, still hot, but not in the blazing sun. My husband and I both ordered the dinner combo, with the shrimp... More

We sat outside and watched the boats arrive and depart...for a while and finally a server came to take our order. The frozen drinks are large, sweet and over priced. The wings were over breaded but were OK. We then waited for a while to get a check and again for the server to come and get our credit card.... More

We came to AJ's based on recommendation from locals and they were spot on! Great service, tasty food and wonderful Tybee atmosphere/deck on back to watch the sunsets. We had a mix of chicken fingers, fried shrimp and scallops. The snow peas and mashed potato sides were awesome! It absolutely stormed while we were there but we were safe inside... More

We went there with friends and had the customary long wait. It was very hot and muggy so to sit out on the deck was miserable. They made some attempts to help with umbrellas and overhead screening but they didn't help much. The food was average for that type of restaurant. Our friend had a watermelon margarita which she said... More

The watermelon margarita is a great treat to compliment the fried shrimp and flounder. Every person in my family from my parents to my five-year-old son found a menu item to enjoy.

Great atmosphere, friendly service and wonderful food. We enjoyed the selection of music that was playing while eating and admiring the view.

Starting at the door, hostess made our party of 9 literally feel like it was a bother and inconvenience to seat us. Maybe this can be the attitude because the restaurant is on an island, but I'd rather starve or drive than to eat here. Needless to say, we left.
