From Hilton Head, we took a day trip to Fort Pulaski and Tybee Island. It was total luck that when we searched for where to eat, A-J’s came up. It was excellent! Two people had shrimp, 1 had the crab cake sandwich and the fourth...More

We love A-J's Dockside and is a must stop for us whenever we are on the Island. The buffalo shrimp is the best I've ever had! Cold beer, delicious food and waterfront relaxation!

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.
