We ate an early dinner on a Thursday, a party of eight. Certainly there was plenty of parking on our arrival, though a bit packed in the lot on our departure. We'd made reservations due to our size but I might suggest reservations for any time/date/party size as parties of any size were into a 25 minute wait well before... More

Even though the decor and cuisine was pretty high end, everyone in the place was dressed very casually so don't let that stop you from going. In general, Chincoteague does not appear to busy this time of year (a lot of the highly rated restaurants on trip advisor were closed still). This was the first place that we went to... More

The food and service at AJ's was very good. Our grandson started with a burger off the kids menu but soon discovered he loved crab cakes and they were happy to bring him one. We had an excellent meal.

The food wasn't great, but our waitress was pleasant. Still, the price tag was pretty steep for what we got.

Our favorite dinner restaurant on Chincoteague Island. Kids loved their hamburger and pasta meals while we loved the stuffed artichoke appetizer, clams casino, cream of crab soup, crab cakes, and steaks to name a few. Highly recommend!

We were hesitant based on some reviews we read on other sites. However they were always busy? So we took a chance. Take what others say with a grain of salt. Had a wonderful Flounder dinner and our waitress Jan (Janice?) was fabulous!

This restaurant has the potential to be a great 'special event' kind of place. Unfortunately, they are really missing the boat on the atmosphere front. We were there for dinner on a Wednesday evening in mid April.....far from 'high season' ......and found the (tightly packed) dining room to be LOUD. Our table for two was perched between two families,....one on... More
