Dependably consistent good food, reasonably priced with excellent staff. My family has tried most all menu options and never been disappointed. Vegetables are well prepared, with adequate but not overwhelming portions. Ajax is must experience dining when in Oxford.

The place was crowded but it didn't take that long to get a table. The food was really good. The wait staff was reliable and courteous. Good place to ea. If the locals come back you know it's good.

Be prepared for a nap afterward! Great meat and 3 or 4 plate on the square. If you're feeling healthy, pops shrimp salad!

We are glad we ate lunch at this popular diner on the Courthouse Square. I had Chicken N Dumplins, with fried okra, cucumbers & onions, and cornbread. My husband had the Shrimp Po Boy with fries. The food was great! Service was friendly. This place gets my vote!

We had lunch at this courthouse square diner. We went on Saturday and it was very busy. However, we did not have to wait long. A lot of variety on the menu.

We tried to visit Ajax Diner when we were here close to Christmas, but they were closed. We got so many recommendations that we tried again.

There is a reason this place stays packed, very good food!!! I came in for lunch and squeezed myself up to the bar, best squeeze ever!!!! I enjoyed the Red Beans and Rice lunch special. Great tasting and wonderful flavor, green beans and cornbread were very good. Randy has a great business!! A must stop for a visit in Oxford.
