My husband and I went for an early dinner. We didn't have reservations and we were seated right away at a table with a water view. I had scallops and my husband had crab/bacon bake. The food was delicious and we didn't wait long. Ken was a great server He explained all the specials and invited us to open mic... More

I have to start off by saying our waitress, Megan was awesome... met all of our needs- very attentive and informative. Our food was delicious. The inside of the restaurant was very very nice- different types of seating arrangements with several different areas. Our only complaint was the outside of the restaurant looks very neglected. We had a window seat... More

My wife and I were hitting a few spots on the East Coast and, after a long day of driving up the coast we ended up in Chincoteague. I was tired and hungry and was not in the mood for anything less than great food and excellent service. At AJs that was exactly what we got !! I am 70... More

Great dinner on the waterfront. Plenty of parking and only required a reservation about 30 minutes before arriving. Had a window seat, and Server #48 was very nice, had plenty of suggestions for great seafood, and checked back with us often even though the restaurant was packed. Clam chowder and cream of crab soup were amazing, and steamed shrimp dinner... More

We stopped here to get seafood, but they were having a surf and turf special so we also got a steak. As it turned out the steak stole the night. The New York strip was prepared perfectly. My wife got hers medium rare and I got mine medium. If your tired of seafood stop here and get a great steak.

There don't appear to be a lot of options in Chincoteague for a nice diner and the fact that the parking lot was full seemed to be a good sign. After a 45 min wait in the bar (good band, terrible service from the bartender) we got a table. Local oysters were good, small but tasty and very reasonably priced... More

Good place to eat for dinner. Great steak (they do a good job on steaks!), seafood, bread and service. We didn't have one issue with the meal. Was so much food, couldn't even eat dessert. All and all an enjoyable experience.

Atmosphere was great. We went there the first time & it was dark outside. Lighting was dim & romantic. Food was delicious. I had scallops, shrimp, artichokes with spaghetti in a mornay sauce. It was oh so good. My husband had a crab cake that was all crab & he relished it.
