Originally went to Costello's next door but no seating. So we went in to AJ's. I had heard it was good but never tried. Went in and it is small and cramped with a very strange odor. The larger dining area really smelled bad and we sat in the front near door against my better judgement. We ordered me an... More

Just ok. Nothing special. Chicken salad wrap was quite tasty. Tuna salad wrap not so much. Place is a little run down and cramped. Came here for the shops more than for the food.

Supposed to be open until 7 pm? There last Wednesday at 6 pm, it was closed. Too bad, had to eat at the Tavern instead.

AJ's has indoor and outdoor seating overlooking a pretty lake. It was a really hot day so we opted for inside with AC. The servers were very friendly and seated us immediately on a summer Sunday around 10;30 am, no wait, great!! I ordered the California wrap which has scrambled eggs, cheese, salsa, & advocato. DELICIOUS! Everything is very fresh.... More

We had lunch here the other day, and really enjoyed it. My husband's omelette was excellent, as was my grilled cheese (on wheat). I am kind of a cole slaw freak, and AJ's is terrific. Our teenage daughter loved her California wrap and sweet potato fries. The service was prompt and friendly.

Not that busy for lunch! We ordered fish and chips and A meatloaf dinner with gravy which came with 2 sides and a salad to start. The Caesar was soggy but we ate it as we were starving. The sides I ordered were Zucchini and a mix of tatter tots and sweet potato fries. A few more tables filled, orders... More

My husband and I both got omelettes and they were incredible. The staff is friendly and the location right on the lake is awesome. Highly recommend!

Great location, Smithville is a great place to stroll through. The staff at AJ's is super friendly. The food is exactly what you'd expect from a diner. Simple and easy, just not great.

While visiting Smithville, NJ, we had the pleasure to have lunch and breakfast at AJ's on the Lake. Both of our meals tasted awesome. My wife had the tomato bisque and I had a bowl of chili with our meatloaf entrees. For breakfast we ate pancakes, which were light and fluffy. This place is a great place to eat while... More
