We experienced none of the negative aspects on which some others have commented. On a busy September Saturday night, the food, service and ambiance were more than acceptable. This is Chincoteague, after all. Our reservation was honored, the waitress was friendly and informative, and the local seafood was very good.

There were four of us eating dinner here and none of us thought what we ate was worth the price we paid. It's not that the food is bad, it's more that the price is too high for the quality and quantity. The creek that runs past the restaurant is very small, nothing to look at. We would not eat... More

We had a dinner date recently at AJ's and it was our favorite meal in Chincoteague. We arrived without a reservation on a Saturday night and luckily they were able to seat us despit being packed full. The atmosphere is very conducive for a date (lower lighting and candles on the tables) and you can sit inside or outside on... More

We had a lovely dinner on a Weds night and the place was busy. Sat out on the screened in porch on the creek. Very pleasant and the service was excellent. My husband had the broiled flounder and it was delicious- and I had a great salad and linguini with vegetables. I don't eat meat, - but there were many... More

Nothing exceptional about the food, but the service is very nice and welcoming. Steaks were terrific. Seafood chowder was bland, as was the fried seafood platter.

Friday nights have the music to enjoy in the bar, the staff was great and friendly and the people sitting around the bar made the place even feel more like you were listen to the music at your own home. The food was pretty good also. The servers or Bar tenders were very nice not a sour attitude at all... More

Did all the other reviewers not see how filthy this restaurant is? I can't even review the food because it was so difficult for me to taste the salad I had ordered because I was overwhelmed by the food spattered walls and dust and the dated decor. I had to think if this is what I can see, what can't... More

There were 16 adults and were able to make reservations to sit in their screened in porch which over looks the creek. We sat a 3 round tables and had a server for each table. Appetizers were served before the salad (which is what we like), then the meal came out after we all finished our salad. We were not... More

We are regulars at AJ's and always have excellent service and great food. We like the appetizer special for two when we aren't looking for a full meal. The steak specials are always my first choice for a meal, as they have the best tasting steaks I've had for any restaurant including well known steakhouses.

Another place that does not look like much from the outside, but the food is very good. If it is not too hot, ask to sit on the porch near the creek -- I will in the future as it looked charming. I was almost afraid to go in when I saw there was live music in the front --... More
