A very enjoyable meal and evening. The service was good, restaurant was clean and the food was delish. They have music several evenings during the week and it is nice to sit and enjoy the meal and entertainment.

This place was very good but with an Alaskan flare to decorating. Cabin-type chairs with black table cloths. Full bar. The blue chips (they make their homemade potatoes chips) were extremely good with very thin potatoes. Had the filet special with a chunk of blue...More

We were greeted and immediately seated, the waiter arrived timely and explained the specials for the evening. We all enjoyed the fresh pan seared halibut, which was well presented and equally delicious.

Had the new your strip with scallops add on and it was absolutely amazing! Without a doubt the best prepared scallops I've ever eaten. Will make this a priority stop every trip to AK!

AJ's Oldtown Steakhouse & Tavern is known locally as the "Historic Waterfront". AJ's is proud to be serving up the top 2% of USDA Prime Beef offered in the Nation and the only on the Kenai Peninsula. Offering mouth-watering steaks & great seafood including Scallops, King Crab, Fresh Halibut & Salmon! Let's not forget those delicious cheese burgers, the Tavern Menu, Spirits and Specialty Martinis in a casual old town atmosphere! This venue also features great family entertainment & dinner music before 10pm. If your looking for food late...AJ's is the last Kitchen open in Homer. Come in and see what's new. The transformation is amazing! We've kept the old town hospitality tradtion going and are still serving Homer's famous Red Knot Craft Beer, the Old Town Rusty Nail & some amazing specialty martinis! Some history...Established in 1941 AJ's has an amazing history. The front part of the building was built as the original women's club in 1937. Laura & Walt purchased it from the women's club and it opened as the first cafe & bar in Homer in 1941. They named it the Homer Cafe & Club. It featured just a few bar stools, a pool table, and a tiny kitchen. Over the years it has had many owners including Tex & Marge Sharp. They named it the "Waterfront" and it became known as the best place on the peninsula to get a good steak! In the 1970's folks would spend hours at the Waterfront being entertained by the likes of Harley Hess & Hobo Jim. In the 1990's it became Duggan's and featured a friendly, Irish Pub atmosphere. Now, as AJ's, the old town building has come full circle back to the ol' Waterfront days, featuring great Steak, Seafood, Spirits & Entertainment, along with the same friendly old town hospitality that has been a tradition for over 70 years.
