Better than average; nice ambiance

This quiet restaurant has a pleasant interior, with reduced lighting yet nice views of the waterways and sunset. The menu features seafood, which was quite good. Service was fast and efficient. Meals come with salad and bread. The waiter offered blue cheese on the side for our salads, and then we... read more

I've been to this restaurant about three times over the last several years and have found it rather lacking on each visit. Frankly, the food is only average and quite over-priced. I was particularly disappointed on this last visit when I specifically questioned the waiter if there was skin on the fried flounder and he said there was not. While... More

We were in Chincoteague to celebrate our 25th anniversary & chose AJ's because it didn't sound like a touristy type place for a special dinner. I started with clams casino & did not like them.They were huge,chewy clams and I discreetly spit a few out. Hubby had the lamb chops and I chose the seafood scampi. His was cooked to... More

This was our first time at AJs. Went on recommendation from our motel. There was a great variety of food although each of us had some type of seafood. Food was great and well presented. The service was very attentive and offered us very good suggestions. Would definitely go back again.

I walked into the bar area accidentally, which looked somewhat cozy, but opted for the restaurant section and was seated at a booth by the window on the side of the creek. The waitress was very efficient, courteous and welcoming. The food was excellent which was seafood on linguini, including shrimp, scallops with the just the right touch of garlic!... More

AJ's almost makes it. The food is well prepared and presented, and quite original for resort fare. However, the ambiance could use a bit of work. While we were there on a Thursday night, there was a very good singer in the bar area. The sound floated into the restaurant and clashed with the background music playing there, which was... More
