“Always great!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Delicious and fresh, good service, interesting and fun decor and atmosphere, on the water, near fabulous shops and fun activities for the kids. Beautiful harbor and boats, exciting area. Seafood platter well presented with good portion size. Will definitely return!

“Fun atmosphere, average food”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

AJ's is a great place to hang out on the harbor, have a couple of beers, listen to some music, and get a taste of some seafood. The atmosphere is very upbeat and relaxed. There was live music while we were there, and a dj was coming later than night. There was a dance floor that was getting some attention even early in the evening.

The food selection upstairs isn't extensive, but was decent for a bar. I learned later that there is a full restaurant downstairs, but haven't visited that area. The food was good. I had a crawdad po' boy, which was a very generous portion. We also had two appetizers: a quesadilla and the smoked tuna dip. The quesadilla was good; the tuna dip was really good. The beer selection was similar--nothing exciting on draft, but a handful of good beers available in bottles. They push the fruity cocktails a bit. My friend got a margarita and was unimpressed, but she's had some pretty good margaritas in her day.

Not bad for a relaxed get together, but I wouldn't plan a special event there.

“Get your cheesy seafood place fix in.”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Stopped here after our parasailing adventure. We like to eat at least once in a cheesy seafood place when on a beach vacation and this fit the bill. Service was slow, and food was just ok. About what you would expect.
