Disappointing. Thin crusted pizza, skimpy on toppings. Initially very popular, but consistent quality failed. Eager staff, would listen for suggestions, as this part of town begins to eclipse AJ's with better eateries. AJ's Does deliver.

This place has excellent gluten-free pizza. The chicken tenders and mustard sauce are fantastic too! My wife and I get take out from here weekly and have always had a very positive experience. Friendly and efficient staff, and they are offer a 10 percent discount to Portsmouth Naval Shipyard workers, too!

I should have known from the pile of pre-cooked pizza base. Pizza is by definition fresh: with a pre-cooked base why bother buying it in a pizzeria: go to the convenience store: it is the same... I ate a "margherita" around 8 pm: It is now 2:20 am and I am writing because my stomach doesn't give me a break.... More

I am really sorry you feel like that about our establishment. Our crust is our own organic recipe. We are all about freshness at AJ's... The doughs are always fresh, we grill them every morning before we get too busy, as it would be impossible to keep up with all the pizzas ordered every night otherwise. When a pizza is... More

Quick delivery, great unique pizza - our favorite is the AJ. The restaurant itself is tiny. Try their featured dessert - it is yet to disappoint! Way better then the other chains around - great thin crust!

The spinach salad was great and two other tables had it too. Had a slice of pizza plus the Italian sandwich. The sandwich was fantastic.

I've heard a lot of people talking about AJs. Although I didn't get to experience the Resturant itself I ordered a pizza for delivery. It took thirty minutes to deliver to my hotel. :15 early than quoted. So for that I was impressed. But... The pizza was bland tasting. We ate a few slices out of a large and couldn't... More

Always get a good meal at AJ's. The way they grill the dough first is unique and adds a lot of flavor. I recommend the sweet sausage, pepper and onion pizza. Their boneless wings are also great with some ranch!

Been coming here since they opened. Highest quality possible and their wood grilled Greek salad is genius. Their gourmet pizza is very high quality! They also have outdoor seating in the summer!!
