Pretty Atmosphere and Good Food

My husband ordered the scallops and said they were cooked to perfection. I enjoyed my pasta dish. The staff was attentive and the ambiance was pleasant. Worth the stop.

The first night we were in Chincoteague we chose to eat at AJ's. The host was very kind and sat us at a beautiful location on the screened in deck. Unfortunately our experience took a turn for the worst as we quickly came to realize that our waiter, an older gentleman, had an arrogance problem. 1.) My husbands glass was... More

Have been going there for years. Last week was no different. I simply love the coconut shrimp and my brother loved his calamari. They have lunch specials that are very reasonable. Very conveniently located on Maddox blvd.

Although it wasn't crowded, and some tables remained empty during our visit, we were place at a table near the door rather than the interior of the restaurant. We either did not have a reservation or made it late the day of our visit. Next to us was a table with two rather obnoxious guests who were rude and offensive... More

If someone in your group is "tired of seafood," then bring them here. The rest of the group will still enjoy good seafood and that picky person can have one of the best steaks of their lives. My husband got NY strip. My kids got pasta and pizza that they LOVED. I got the catch of the day--a nice tuna... More

A little pricey for what it was. Not my favorite on my list. We expected better the only time we were there.

I went with my family, a friend, plus my sister and her husband and we all had excellent meals and service. The selection is wide and the setting was very pleasant. Pricing was reasonable to the quality and location.

My wife and I ate dinner there the other night and did not like it. The soup was just ok, the Caesar salad dressing tasted store bought, the pasta and mussels were bland and the crab cakes were average at best. They did not have any lump crab meat in them, looked to be a lot of filler. To top... More

Went to AJ's two times during our first vacation in Chincoteague. They were great! Clams Casino, Raw Oysters, Manhattan & New England Clam Chowders were all delicious starters. We loved the Surf & Turf, and Crab Cake dinners so much, we had them on both visits. Nice wine list, and great drinks too, Our servers, Lauren and Megan were friendly,... More
