The best dining experience in Chincoteague

We visited twice this year (once last year and no times during the previous 15 years) ... Unbelievable that it has taken us this long. By far the best restaurant on the island. The service was great by very experienced, personable wait staff and excellent food.

My husband and I love this place! We only get to Chincoteague once a year and look forward to going to AJs. We enjoy it so much that we usually go there both nights.

Our family had dinner here for out last night on the Island. I had gotten the crab cakes and they were excellent. The salted baked potato was great and the salad was skimpy. The service was okay. Our server didn't come back to refill drinks until we were ready to leave.

This place is old-school in the best possible way. The interior is the traditional higher-end beach seafood restaurant in terms of decor and ambiance.

Go for the crab and bacon bake. I have never had anything like it. The oysters are fresh and delicious.

Excellent food in a touch of upscale atmosphere. The main dining room is a bit tight when full, but the food remains served to perfection.
