Delicious breakfast when we visited in May. Have been to Tybee many times, since it's the closest beach to Atlanta, but first tie eating at A-J's. Eclectic environment is very fun to peruse, and it's right on the water, south end of the island. Good food and service, check it out!

Great food and great service. Seating available outside or inside. Great view of marsh area. We ate here twice during our three day visit. Some of our group kayaked to dock at A-J's. You cannot put in there, but you can tie up and come up to eat.

Asked the waitress how the oysters were looking this time of year and she said "pretty good". (usually I get some educated answer like they are out of season or order the scallops they're better). After 20 minutes I got a plate of dark brown fried junk - as the waitress stood near me I broke up several empty balls... More

We are here every night on our girls kayaking week...three years in a row! Great seafood and so fresh. Love sitting on the dock and watching the phenomenal sunsets. Good service (can be slow at times but who cares with that view!)

My husband I ate at AJ's twice during a recent trip to Tybee. The atmosphere on the dock was a beautiful setting for dinner. The food was great too! This is a 'must try' while on the island! Just be sure to bring a little bug spray during the warm months.

Out of the way place. Lucky for us a native told us about this place. Food is average but the ultimate bloody mary is worth the drive! Not only is it a drink but an appetizer to boot!

Desperate need of being cleaned. The horrible fishy, cigarette smell as you walk through the tacky t-shirt store to the cluttered and dirty bar sent us straight outside to the dock. They need pest control to deal with all the little bugs. Food everyone raved about was just okay. The sweet potato fries were cold. The butter had been sitting... More

The staff was so friendly and nice and the bartender was too! We had a delicious lunch of Tybee boiled shrimp, wings and the most wonderful salad with fried oysters. Just fantastic food and service and we definitely recommend! Can't wait to go back!

An organization my wife and I were meeting with in Savannah had a few hours for entertainment, so a crowd of us (12 folks) took off to Tybee Island. We drove around the island and spent some time walking on the beach by the pier. The consensus was reached that we needed a place to get out of the wind... More
