My husband and I decided to celebrate our 3rd anniversary with dinner at AJ's. I should have read the TripAdvisor reviews more carefully before deciding, but it is difficult to find "fine dining" for special occasions on Chincoteague. We would have been happier at a more casual place with great food! When we arrived with our baby boy, I thought... More

We have been to this place before and I can happily say it is still excellent. Great oysters and great service. While we were dining, a few of th islands famous Saltwater Cowboys stopped in the parking lot. They had started to round up the wild ponies on Assateague Island for the annual round up.

The food was less than mediocre; dark and dank atmosphere; weak service. Ironically, our best dining experience on the island is across the street from AJ's at the Village.

Our waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. Raw oysters were delish! My son really loved his dinner of oyster with bacon and scallions in a champagne sauce. It was a hit for all of us.

We were there for dinner. My husband and three sons ordered dinner entrees which came with either a house salad or ceasar salad. She asked if they wanted blue cheese which two out of three said yes. They assumed it was an option but it was a dollar extra addition. No biggie...but it would been nice if she had clarified... More

On a whim we stopped by this place on a Thursday evening. We were surprised how crowded it was! That's a good sign to us. The place is dimly lit with white tablecloths and candles on the tables, nice ambiance albeit a little loud for my liking. Anyway, I had the shellfish bouillabaisse and my wife the filet mignon. Both... More

My service was wonderful! I had an early dinner but would recommend reservations. I had a crab cake it was delicious. They also have entertainment next to the restaurant.

Whilst we were staying in Chincoteague we ate at Aj's on the creek 3 times and could not fault the food and the service. The crab cakes were excellent.

This restaurant was OK but it seemed to be a little out of step, mostly with itself. The tables were set with white table cloths setting an atmosphere that was a little too formal for lunch, but then the waitresses began yelling back and forth to each other across the quiet restaurant in anything but a formal atmosphere. It was... More
