To be honest, we come for the Loaded Bloody Mary and the seafood too! You will not believe it when you see it, almost a meal in itself. Its a dockside seafood joint with a generous selection and friendly for kids. Shrimp and flounder are excellent. Not much that we do not like here. Staff is super nice. Can get... More

My husband and I went here for a lunch date and we had a wonderful experience. The Buffalo Shrimp appetizer was extremely delightful. The fried shrimp and fries for lunch was a good portion and a good price. We loved the laid back atmosphere and local charm.

Went for lunch and expected more. We waited 30 minutes to be seated. This was surprising being off season. We both ordered the fried shrimp lunch, which cost almost $17. After waiting an additional 30 minutes and With the price we expected to get a plate full of delicious fried shrimp. Instead it was 10, just barely bigger than bite... More

My husband and I enjoyed drinks and dinner here a couple of nights ago. It was surprisingly busy for a Sunday night in February. We elected to wait at the bar. Good Old Fashions and people watching. We were seated in about 30 minutes and were delighted to get a table outside. The furniture out there is painted in fun,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on the patio dockside & eating lunch. Had the spinach/artichoke hearts dip with homemade tortilla chip...wished the spinach had been chopped into smaller pieces, but it was good. Next ate the buffalo shrimp...it's shrimp season...so why not!? They were large and delicious. Got a dozen of the best tasting Georgia shrimp I've ever tasted. Polished those... More

I happened past A-J's while riding my bike on my birthday. We decided to try it for my birthday lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, service was great, and prices reasonable. It's off the beaten path and allows a quiet enjoyable meal.

We rented a house right down the street and stumbled upon AJs. The view at dinner was amazing and the staff friendly. My major concern is all the food seemed to be "warmed" to room temperature. Nothing was hot like it should be. We even sent the crab legs backs to be heated up. The crab dip was tasty but... More

The title, pretty much sums it up! There were 3 of us dining and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The standout was the scored flounder! I would definitely go back!

We tried unsuccessfully to get a table the night before. We were just a teeny bit late. But we did better tonight and each had a delicious meal. Now, the seafood dishes might all say they're fried, but you can have them grilled or blackened instead - just ask. I had the blackened red trout with gouda grits and a... More
