“Average food Great Sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

It was cold the night we were there so we had to sit inside. Inside is like any other waterfront bar/restaurant. When the sun started to set we were able to move outside for awhile and it was beautiful.

“Love the place! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We visited AJ's after lots of positive comments from others! The venue is amazing a little shack type, which I love! The food was amazing! From the deviled crab to the veggies! Will definitely be back on our next trip.

“Fresh and Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

While touring Tybee Island, we became hungry and of course wanted fresh fish. It was also getting close to sundown and I wanted to watch the sunset. I found AJ's on my phone and followed directions to what seemed like all residential until you get to the end of the road. Little place with a marina. Service was great, they had a happy hour with domestic bottles of beer for $2. It was'nt very crowded, so we had our choice of seating and the waitress suggested sitting under the cover outside. Crab stew was very flavorful and the grilled Corvina was like nothing ive ever tasted. The place was packed on a Wednesday night by the time we left. Oh, and the sunset was beautiful.

“Sunset included”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Fun, funky and very casual. The two dishes we had were great...Corvina (white sea bass) with crabmeat and whole flounder. Very ample portions and great service. In peak season supposedly very long wait. Didn't try the gumbo but it looked great. Don't miss the sunset on the deck overlooking the marsh and inlet, beautiful.

“Looks are deceiving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

AJ's Dockside's location on Tybee Island is away from the main street thoroughfare and nestled in a quiet corner of the island where you get a spectacular view of the water and gorgeous evening sunsets. The front outside entrance has a "funkier" retro beach theme and then you are transformed to the back outside seating area on the dock where the ambience is absolutely perfect for enjoying your meal. The food is reasonably priced for the large portions you get and everything tasted good. The service was attentive, friendly, and good. We would love to go back and try their brunch specials on Sunday. There is something for everyone on their menu and we would definitely go back again.
