Love AJ's! Great for lunch or dinner... We love coming here by boat, traffic is never a problem. Food is wonderful, folks are real nice and you might even have some live music :) I Start off with some Conk Fritters then I usually go for any of their blackend fish.

The dock seating area is great - beautiful views. Food was not very good and neither was service. The salads were served very warm. If we go back - we will skip the meal and just enjoy something to drink and enjoy the amazing view..

If you have traveled in the NE, you know what "clam shack" means. This is NOT the place you go for dinning. Walk thru a bar to get to a deck, plastic chairs, etc. Food is marginal and overpriced. This was recommended by the concierge at our hotel as "a better place to eat on the island" which I guess speaks to the quality of food on the island in general. Too bad, nice location.

Food was great. Service good. Great location. Ask for the outside seating to watch the sunset. Very pricey

This is one of the dirtiest restaurants we've ever experienced. Unfortunately, it was pouring rain outside and we were hungry, so we stayed. Big mistake. We sat outside on the covered deck, which had a great view, but just like the main dining room, it was dirty, dirty, dirty with bits of food and garbage all over the floor. The food varied from okay to simply inedible. For example, my hush puppies tasted like they had been fried days ago. The fried flounder was obviously cooked in old oil, as evidenced by the horrific taste. To make matters worse, as we were leaving, we noticed "anti-liberal" (?!) stickers plastered all over the front door. I've never seen anything like that at a business. Instead of wasting time pushing their politics on their customers, perhaps the owners should spend some energy on giving their restaurant a good scrub down. Ick. If the dining rooms look that bad, I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like behind closed doors. If you're a right-wing Tea Party nut who enjoys eating bad food in a filthy setting, you'll love this place. Enjoy.
