A-J's food was ok. The appetizer was delicious! Fried green beans. The rest of the food was a bit dry for me. But my brother in law loved it.! The bartender was amazing. He made the best lemon drop I had ever had!!

Went to A-J'a for lunch and the food was delicious! The fried oysters and blackened scallops for awesome! It's a cute little place tucked at the end of Tybee Island along the Back River. Very local feeling, was added to its charm :)

We like the local seafood restaurant at least once on our beach trips. They are often dives and quirky like AJs. If you're looking for a slick and polished restaurant, this isn't it. It was exactly what we enjoy! Great food and real people. We...More

Great atmosphere, family friendly, live music (bring cash to tip him!) Food was really good, but basic fried fish. My husband got the $35 seafood pasta, he said it was really good but not $35 worth.

AJ's has a lot of things going for it-- a variety of things on the menu, cheap drinks, AND an amazing view! But, all of that pales in comparison to one thing. The Buffalo Shrimp! Perfectly fried, tossed in buffalo sauce (no tails on those...More

Will be returning in the future. The seafood pasta was delicious along with the key lime pie. Look for the parking lot across the street. Hardly any parking in the front of the building.

Great food all around! We stumbled upon this place while bike riding. Good burgers, shrimp, and grilled chicken!

My son and I had a great afternoon lunch on their outside deck on the water. It's peaceful and beautiful. The food was great. Their chocolate cake and cheesecake were excellent!

Obviously a busy time, but... We got the impression from the host that Aj's had enough business that night and didn't need ours. 1 1/2 hr wait for a table, go to the bar if you want to...nothing welcoming. We go go tybee frequently, and...More

Oddly enough I do not recall them having crab claws. They have great conch fritters and crab cakes, but did not have crab claws on the menu.
