Great food, fun atmosphere. Crowded but wait wasn't too long. Enjoyed having a drink while waiting, walking along dock next to marsh.

Located on the back side of the island, so you will have to bike, drive, or take a taxi. You will be glad you did! This place is super! You can eat inside, or outside on a huge deck right on the water! Watch boats and fishermen while you eat. The food is fantastic, and the beer and cocktail selection... More

No reservations allowed - the wait was over an hour (it was the height of tourist season) but the food was definitely worth it. Fresh food-great, attentive service and pricing which is not unfair. Great atmosphere-even on the patio the weather and temperature was nice for July! If I remember correctly, they offer steamed,boiled,fried and grilled seafood...and of course the... More

Again, another great Tybee location. Great food, service, and view. The drinks were also good. The dinner was priced fair.

Enjoyed the setting overlooking backwater. Hostess was gruff. As typical of seafood restaurants, most items fried, alternative of grilling or steaming not offered. Limited lunch menu. Nothing exceptional about lunch.

Sitting outside is a must! The hush puppies are amazing and the location is laid back and pretty. Beach music playing added to the atmosphere.

After many trips to Tybee, we finally tried AJ's. We had flounder and shrimp, mainly, at our table, and it was excellent. Don't bother with the hush puppies...they were nothing special and "served at room temperature". I didn't love them. Sit on the deck--the view is worth it! Enjoy!

Warm beer, poor service, old northerns that have relocated to Tybee discussing their woos at the bar, very hot inside and a dirty hole in the wall feel. Couldn't get excited about any menu items even though stopped for a quick drink and a noche. The peel n eat shrimp remains in front of us were 1/4 eaten and did... More
