My wife and I were on our honeymoon to the area and was staying on Tybee. We wanted something different and found this place online. We were totally impressed. The river is beautiful at night and it is romantic and fun. Quirky but peaceful and just a delight to eat there. The prices for some things like my rib-eye were... More

A must do for us every time we visit Savannah! The sunset view is gorgeous, the food is delicious, service is great, and the solo musician is excellent! On peak nights there is a wait – a sign of a great restaurant – just hang out at the bar for a while with the friendly bartenders and enjoy the chill... More

If you come here, you'll want to come right before sunset and sit outside on the dock. The seafood is fresh and very good. The sweet tea, however, was more like tea flavored water (very weak and not so sweet).

This was a wonderful "coastal" restaurant featuring a variety of items on their menu and it was all good. Our party of four would recommend the burgers, the crabmeat sandwich, and the fried oysters. The sweet potato fries were waffle like and dipped in cinnamon and heaven sent. We sat outside and looked over the water and had a marvelous... More

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset at A-Js. The service was excellent and the food was great. I had the Corvina, which was new to me, the whole plate was delicious and perfectly cooked.

We ate dinner here the first night of our family trip to Tybee. The food was amazing and the Bloody Mary was the best one I had on the island. The service was excellent. My only complaint was that we had to wait a while for a table, but it was well worth it! Yum!

This was the first place we ate on our trip to Tybee Island and it did not disappoint. The food was amazing and the views of the back river were awesome. Definitely add A-J's to your list of must-try's while in town!!

There was a little wait but drinks at the bar made it go by quickly. Outside seating was nice. They have live music on the weekends and he was fantastic! He played a lot of oldies that was perfect for the atmosphere. Definitely the best fried shrimp we've had, and the key lime pie is a must have. It's off... More
