My wife and I went for dinner and had Steaks and a Cheese Cake for desert. I'm no expert on Cheese Cake but that New York Steak I had was absolutely delightful.. I like Rare steak and this was cooked perfectly. It was incredibly tender...and juicy. The special that night was a topping of Blue Cheese Mousse that was an incredible topping. If you are staying in Homer on your Alaskan Adventure you can't go wrong with AJ's Oldtown Steakhouse. Get your reservation and check in because sometimes the table opens up early.More

Our tour guide didn’t prepare for dinner. We ended up wandering around town and happened upon AJ’s. Darryl was so accommodating, even though we didn’t have a reservation. The dinner was amazing so we made reservations for the next night and brought some of our...tour mates. You won’t be disappointed, just be sure to make a reservation!More

My husband and I had a late dinner at AJ’s. We both ordered the New York strip steak; mine with goat butter and his with shrimp. We also ordered the Cesar salads. We asked for a wine recommendation from our server. The salads were just...ok. I’ve had much better at other steakhouses. The steaks were excellent. And the wine our server suggested was a wonderful pairing. It was a great meal. This place is not noisy, which I loved. We could actually talk over our meal. The service was excellent as well. We would definitely go back.More

Great dinner in a classic Homer. Favorite for tourists and locals. The place was packed and we didn't have a reservation. The host was SO kind and eventually got us two seats at the bar. We had amazing kodiak scallops and wonderful halibut fish and...chips. It took a LONG time for the food to arrive but was totally worth the wait!More

My family of five showed up without a reservation one evening while on vacation. They were packed, but the gentleman who greeted us at the door worked hard to get us a table as soon as possible. We were so glad we waited! We all...got different dishes (3 types of seafood as well as a pasta dish and sandwich) and they were all excellent! My grilled salmon was some of the best I had on our trip. I also liked the Alaskan beers they had on tap. This was the best restaurant we ate at in Homer. If in Homer again, we will definitely be eating here!More

I knew this was a higher end restaurant, and it was. But it was full of locals celebrating and eating their good food, always a good sign. Service was impeccable, food was very good, and the ambience was nice, although very loud. Definitely recommend it...- just be prepared for the higher bill at the end.More

AJ’s has been our favorite restaurant for years. We will drive over an hour just to eat dinner there. Lately, we have been less satisfied with the meals. We always order the steaks and the meat is great. But for the price of their food,...the sides are not great Usually mushy cooked veggies. The mashed potatoes are ok. The he atmosphere is lovely and most of the time so are the servers. Darryl is always kind and friendly. But for the price, and the lack of food served, we will not be making the drive.More
