Good food and scenic setting

AJ's has a fairly good selection of entrees and is right on the creek, so it is also a scenic setting. It is a bit pricey for the fare, but a good alternative when you are on Maddox Blvd.

Lovely and clever interior design in this restaurant, breaking up the space into "rooms" and offering some quiet corners. Megan our server was friendly and attentive. Cream of crab soup was great. Yellowfin tuna was the evening special. I ordered medium rare and it came out somewhere just shy of well done—tasteless and chewy. I'd tried a couple of bites... More

We were thoroughly pleased with the food and service at AJ's. We have passed on this place before due to the heavy traffic. This trip was off-season . . . we will suffer a long wait to experience AJ's again!

We went to AJ's in October of 2015. The restaurant was very nice. Nice atmosphere and clean. I ordered the crab imperial which was fantastic. Huge portion and very well done - delicious! My husband ordered the stuffed flounder which he was not thrilled with :-(. Would definately recommend this restaurant and will go back there too....just skip the flounder... More

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay on Chincateague Island and both lunch and dinner were very good! The tuna sandwich was great and so were the homemade chips. For dinner, we had the appetizer special and the Clams Casino and Oysters Rockafeller were both excellent! We also enjoyed the acoustic duo in the lounge!

Had lunch here after going to Assateague. Crab soup was very good. Shrimp Scampi was too salty and shrimp were over cooked. My husband had the oyster sandwich and they were also over cooked. Wouldn't recommend anything but the crab soup and Caesar salad.

The food was very good, but do be prepared to spend more than you might think. Husband and I went, he had a full up meal and I had a bowl of soup, price was $60.00.
