“Not Out of the Ordinary”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

We did not realize it was even a restaurant at first glance, just a quick stop grocery. Just glad to have a hot breakfast, passed up the breakfast buffet. Biscuit, eggs and sausage OK. Few breakfast choices in Townsend.

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Terrible food (and all I had was a biscuit and grave) Really terrible. Watery gravy and had to take it up to the waitress to be rewarmed and came back exactly the same.

“Not the best”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Standard breakfast buffet, we'll sort of. Eggs were actually pretty good for being scrambled. We got lucky and whoever cooked the bacon did an awesome job!!! The bacon was perfect and there was plenty. Service was lacking, my husband drinks coffee and had to ask every time for coffee refills. Had two servers and one left to go to the yard sale somewhere in town. We had gotten served with our drinks before the server left but after that, no coffee or coke refills and anyone else that came in had bad service. The next batch of bacon that was served was soggy and undercooked. I'm ok with tater tots for breakfast but some may not like it.

“Never Ever Again”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Two couples of us (wives are sisters) were on our third annual stay in the Townsend area and although Riverstone is our pick of breakfast eateries, we decided to try A. J.'s. No, no --- do not do it! This restaurant is the poorest excuse for a restaurant in which we have ever eaten. There was only one server and she had difficulty keeping up with ONLY three tables. One coffee refill in the entire time (about 45 - 60 minutes); eggs really, really sunny side up (in other words, practically raw); meat sides (sausage and hamburger patties just slightly better than shoe leather) although a pork tenderloin was good. This was a very, very bad experience!

“good breakfast stop”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Stopped here for breakfast before a hike in the Smoky's. Had the buffet andcoffee. Pretty standard fare and standard food. Server was very nice and willing to chat. This was a good stop and we enjoyed it. Owner seemed a bit put off when I paid with a card but that is his thing to deal with. Not rude but not real warm and welcoming either. Still, it was ok. Would be willing to go back.
