“Didn't live up to expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

We were staying on st george island and looked at trip advisor for a place to eat and saw AJs had some good reviews. Now I don't know if we just went on and out of ordinary day but the service was soooooooo slow. When we first orded we ordered 3 appetizers, nachos, chicken livers, green tomatoes. Each were good. We then ordered our entrees in which we told they were out of fried okra and cole slaw. So we made the choices as needed. Then after a wait the waitress came out to tell my husband they were also out of 2 of his 4 seafood sampler so he switched to a ribeye. My daughters salad was brought out by itself, she ate, then my shrimp and chicken dinner was brought out and now I was the only one eating and then after a long wait and I finished my food my husbands ribeye was brought out. My shrimp/chicken was less than average but the ribeye was the best! And husband said the mac and cheese was the best he had eating out. So I'm hoping this service is not the norm. Waitress was very courteous just soo slow.

“Wonderful!”

This restaurant is a little hard to find but worth it! The food is AMAZING, not expensive, and you get your moneys worth! The portions are really good sized. All the food comes hot and you can tell it is fresh. I highly recommend this place!

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

As a local I go to AJ's Bar & Grill quite a bit. The food is consistently good as well as the service. It isn't in the typical down town area many people visit, so you must get off the beaten path to find this restaurant. I guarantee once you do it will be a favorite! Wonderful home cooked, stick to your ribs, southern dishes! The lunch buffet every day is NEVER a disappointment. If you get a chance to try their wings, potato salad or key lime pie, then PLEASE DO. Yum!
