Went out to watch the sunset over the water. Awesome view and great service. The food is much improved. The fries were cooked in fresh clean oil and did not taste like fish this time. They weren't under-cooked from low temp fryers as in previous visits. I was surprised since all previous visits there have been disappointing. They attempted at... More

We are seafood lovers and enjoy the food and the scene at AJ's. The servers are efficient and take care of you even when the joint is jumpin'.... which it usually is. Bar service is good and the drinks are too. Wifey loves the Mango Daiquiri and I like to go outside with my full belly and dig the dock... More

I would love to rate this a 5 but the server was not very personable and the people gathered in the bar / seating area on the way out were not that friendly. When I say friendly, I mean non one went out of their way as we passed by them to say thank you so much, how was your... More

When on Tybee, AJ's is the best seafood destination. located at the far end of the Island, right where the sun sets nightly. And the food is fantastic, Staff is friendly and the occasional visit from the dolphins, well, that makes this place great !

We eat lunch at A-J's every year and love it every time. The people working there are so friendly and they have the best fried oysters around.

Spent the day riding bikes, searching for shells, and buying souvenirs on Tybee Island and stumbled upon this little place right on the water. From the front, I originally thought it was just a convenience store, but once inside it opens up to a gift store, huge inside restaurant/bar, and awesome outdoor seating. We sat outside on a great day,... More

The view is great, the service wasn't bad and the food was also pretty good. However, there are pigeons everywhere and regardless of the signs people still fed them. Made for a not so clean environment which is sad since everything else was fine.

We stopped here for a drink and some food. This is a nice place on the water with waterfront views. We sat outside and had drinks which were very good. Our spinach dip was delicious. We would come back here again when in town.

This place is fantastic but you can't help but feel the staff only want you to stay for dinner and spend money. Beer is bottles which is okay but ends up being quite pricey. Margaritas are okay but nothing special. The main meals are okay but quite pricey as if you're hungry you'll still be hungry afterwards. We thought The... More
