We were in Chincoteague for an Anteres rocket launch, went to AJ's for lunch. They had only 1 waitress for the dining room and service was sloooow for lunch time. Food was just Okay. We had the Philly cheese steak and Flounder sandwich with Cajun chips. The Cajun chips were plain, no spice or kick. The Philly cheese steak was... More

Every time my wife and I visit chincoteague we always eat at AJs. Some of the food is pricey, but it's very good.

This seems to be the only place on the island that cares what comes out of the kitchen. We ate here 3 times and could not find fault with anything. Everything from the warm bread to the desserts are wonderful. The day we prepared seafood at our house we came here to get bread & salads to go with our... More

We stopped by for a late lunch and ordered a carafe of wine. Little did we know it would end up being nearly as big as a 1.5. Great value for a group but we were a couple. If we would have understood we would have requested a wine list and ordered a better wine by the bottle. We did... More

Lunch here is very affordable and delicious. I always get the caesar salad with fried chicken strips and mozzarella sticks. My mom always gets the veggie pita. Chicken parm was great too, the one time I tried something different. Service is excellent and the prices are good too. Never been for dinner but go every few weeks for lunch!

My wife and I felt like a little seafood - so we decided to try AJ's. My wife gets these weird feelings sometimes about a restaurant - you know that feeling where they put you in the most awkward seat in the whole place and your waitress is unfriendly? Yeah! That feeling. Let's start with the waitress, who can make... More

The food was good, one of the better places to eat on Chincoteague Island, will definitely consider it again when I'm in the area.. Couldn't figure out the décor, American with some Asian thrown in for good measure.

My Hubby and I were in chincoteague to celebrate our aniversary, and decided to try AJ's. NOT impressed at all!! We were seated quickly but had to promise to be done eating in an hour. When they took us to our table on the deck, they realized there was a different table with no time limit available, and seated us... More

My wife and I stopped in on Friday evening of Columbus Day weekend without a reservation. The hostess said they were fully reserved but she managed to find us a table if we promised we'd be out by 7:30 (it was 6:10 when we went in. We said as long as they could serve us, we'd be out in time.... More
