Perfect place to eat while you watch the boats, parasailers, fishermen, etc pass. We found this to be reasonably priced with a good selection of food for the whole family. Great Service!

We have been eating at AJ's for 20+ years and it is always great. A couple of years ago we tried the Super Steamer and loved it. Once you get past the sticker shock ($95...) it is a real treat. It is more than enough to stuff 2 hearty eaters but probably not enough for 3 if you are starving.... More

Gotta love the atmosphere at AJ'S on the patio. Big screen tv, fans from both teams, cold beer, and great food.

This is always a safe bet if you want fresh fish or seafood of any kind. I can't go into too much detail, because I'm already hungry just thinking about it. This food is so good! Drinks are great too!

Average food at best. Overpriced, over rated. Fabulous harbor location. Very commercialized. Average drinks. Disappointed in our experience.

My first visit to AJs was in 1990, and for the last 3 years, it's been one of our favorite places to eat several times when we visit Destin! Earlier in the day we stopped at another local place only to be disappointed in their food & service. We confirmed that here tonight when we have dinner at AJ's! Oysters... More

Typical Destin tourist trap. If you are a foodie, run. If you just want to have a nice view of the Destin bay and share a few beers, its perfect.
