“Shrimp and grits app”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

Aug 11,2014. We went by here today and had a beer and the shrimp and grits appetizer. Awesome !! Service was good. We went around 4pm, not a big crowd. Parking is somewhat tight. Small dining area. Lot of beers available

“Never again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

We went to A-J's Dockside on our recent trip to Tybee. We got there a little after the lunch time rush.. We thought since it was a nice day, we'd sit on on the water and enjoy the scenery. The weather was very humid and hot. There was one fan going on the deck. We ordered our drinks and some appetizers. Our waitress was very nice and did a good job. We ordered chicken wings with cajun seasoning and buffalo shrimp. When the food was served, it was like a swarm of flies started attacking us. I picked up my chicken wing and noticed there were several hairs(feathers) sticking out of it. After inspection, I noticed that on all the wings. My husband said the buffalo shrimp was good. This was not a great dining experience for us. The combination of the heat, the flies and the feathers on the wings were not appealing. As mentioned in previous reviews, the parking is tricky and they are only about 4 tables inside. We probably won't go back.

“Just fine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

My family and I ate at AJ's during our vacation. Just about everything listed in the menu starts with "fried", but we called and confirmed that most items are also available grilled. I had a fish special that sounded great, but tasted rather bland. My wife had the same experience with the grilled Mahi. My 2-yr old go the children's grilled shrimp and it was delicious. The shrimp were cooked perfectly and very tasty. My wife and I both regretted not getting the grilled shrimp.
Overall our meal was fine, but certainly not what I would consider "great" seafood.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Loved the atmosphere and the food. We sat outside on the dock and ate. Food was good! I had a fish po-boy that was very good. I will go back again! Only bad is small parking lot! Hard to get in and out.
