We really enjoyed this place having been given a tip by a local. Husband had stuffed crab, I had the shrimp and scallops. All were delicious. Service was great and the view was wonderful even with a thunderstorm and tornado warning 😱

Hidden away on the river side of Tybee Island, A-J's was highly recommended to me. I went out last Saturday, and ordered the one pound of local shrimp special (with heads on).

I think I've already summed it up. Foods excellent, staff is great, food came fast, prices are reasonable. I'd love bigger portions but that's only due to how tasty it was.

Would definitely eat here again. Steak was excellent. Buffalo shrimp was awesome. Everyone else said there's was good but can't personally speak about it. Service was excellent. View was breathtaking.

We made a trip to Tybee Island from Savannah to have lunch at A-J's. Weather was perfect to eat a plate full of boil scrimp and a bowl of crab soup outside on their dock. The delicious soup was full of crab meat! Scrimp was sweet and perfectly cooked.
