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 went for our anniversary. Megan (spelling?) was outstanding to us! I got the Neptune Spaghetti...Out of this World! Great ambiance, just wonderful!

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

We went here for a late lunch, at 3:00 pm there were 6 people sitting down and 4 leaving so it was not by any means busy. We were finally waited on and then the waiting began. 20+ minutes for the appetizer and then another 15 for the meal. This must have a very nice place at one time but... More

The food was well prepared and tasty. The service was well informed offered great advice and was very pleasant. The bar had very good music and the evening turned out to be a fun experience.

Let's face it, this is a small town...and you can tell that come fall most people in a place like this are locals. But that does not stop the people who work here make you feel like you are a local yourself. Our server was so pleasant and helpful you would think we'd been coming here for years. In addition...

We were looking for a place to eat on the water. Surprisingly there are very few places and one of the few was closed on Wednesdays (the day we wanted to go). The reviews were mixed here but we decided to give it a try. The outside is not really appealing to draw you in. It was a beautiful night... More
