Loved sitting on the back deck. Hubby had a bloody mary that was awesome and I had a watermelon margarita. Food was good but not great. Service was good.

A-J's food was ok. The appetizer was delicious! Fried green beans. The rest of the food was a bit dry for me. But my brother in law loved it.! The bartender was amazing. He made the best lemon drop I had ever had!!

Went to A-J'a for lunch and the food was delicious! The fried oysters and blackened scallops for awesome! It's a cute little place tucked at the end of Tybee Island along the Back River. Very local feeling, was added to its charm :)

Great atmosphere, family friendly, live music (bring cash to tip him!) Food was really good, but basic fried fish. My husband got the $35 seafood pasta, he said it was really good but not $35 worth.

AJ's has a lot of things going for it-- a variety of things on the menu, cheap drinks, AND an amazing view! But, all of that pales in comparison to one thing. The Buffalo Shrimp! Perfectly fried, tossed in buffalo sauce (no tails on those...More

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.
