First time here. Small, Rustic and beachy atmosphere on the water. We sat outside at the picnic tables with umbrellas for late lunch. Enjoyed the flounder and grilled shrimp. Very busy place, so timing in between was a plus for us. The only draw back is the traffic coming into Tybee or leaving the island. Worth the stop!

This was our second time to A-J's. Did not disappoint! Long, long wait but so worth it! Have a couple drinks, it will go by quick. I would strongly recommend to anyone. Try the Crab Bisque!

They kept trying to push along the meal, offered dessert before the mains were finished, and brought the bill with the dessert. Then had the audacity to ask for my card to pay before we were finished with dessert. Fins somewhere else to go.

The owner of the condo we rented recommended AJ's as their favorite dinner spot. It didn't disappoint. Everyone loved their dinner and sunset view was great!

After spending over $100 for my small family of four (4 entrees, water), it was a terrific experience that I'm going to put into the bucket of been there, done that's. I got the scored founder that seemed to be way over done (one side was almost crisped to the bone (shown), other side was better). Everyone else got the... More

Very eclectic outside but outstanding seafood inside type of restaurant you need a local to point out to you. The seafood is fresh and cooked just right. Moderately priced.

The fresh Sea Food is excellent. Even when very busy, the service is prompt and pleasant. Parking is limited but lots of parking 1/2 block away.
