Enjoy stopping for lunch when traveling up to Maine or back the last two years. Good pizza, gluten free options, and nice location/atmosphere to be in which is the original village vs town of Kittery. Friendly servers

Tried AJs when we could not find a parking spot in Portsmouth on a Thursday evening. Pizza was great and atmosphere was quaint. Seating was a little tight, but the food and service made up for it.

Great food and atmosphere. Rachel was very personable and took care of us. Fresh ingredients and a great alternative to seafood. Definitely have a chat with Mike, he is local Navy personnel and works here also...great guy. We had a variety of pizza and wings...all excellent from the wood fired grill.

We go to AJs when it is time to branch out from our pizza rut! Very, very interesting choices and a great crust. only downside is the ingredients can sometimes a little skimpy

The buffalo chicken wrap was an original take on a classic. Grilled shredded chicken with carrots, shredded salad and blue cheese dressing. Really good. The homemade chips were good but I tried some of the homemade Cajun fries that came with his burger and they were amazing. As was his cheddar burger. I would come back to Maine to eat... More

Like so many wrong turns we've had on our road trip, parking in front of AJ's was a good one. We were looking for a restaurant we were told we had to try. I very boldly walked into AJ's to ask directions to the other restaurant. Without hesitation Michael happily told me how to get there. When from the kitchen... More

I love pizza! I like thin crust, thick crust, Italian, Greek, all types. I read great reviews so I was looking forward to a wood-fired pizza from AJ's. The pizza was bland with little flavor and skimpy ingredients (cheese and pepperoni). I'll admit that I ordered it at 4 PM on a Sunday afternoon so probably the A Team kitchen... More

Crazy fun toppings and pizzas, very tasty wood fired crust. A greay charred romaine salad. Good soup. Nice beer and wine list. Very, very cozy. Doesn't get 5 stars only because pizza is not 'traditional' - the wood-fired pies in New England have a unique character, too many toppings and flavor combos, not purely Italian style (cheese and sauce). But... More

We hadn't been here in awhile so decided to take a Sunday drive for a late lunch! My husband always gets a pizza.....He was happy! I always like to get what ever their daily special is. Today was the best "Cowboy Burger". It was a perfect medium rare! Our daughter had a Turkey that she enjoyed. It isn't a big... More

went on a cold winter night last week. Pizza ranges from excellent to good. I had a special with goat cheese and bacon; wasn't GREAT but was good. Just not a combination I enjoyed. Small selection of beers and wines, good quality, pleasant service. Had a salad as well which was good. Very solid place. not 5 star but you... More
