We stopped for lunch at AJ's, in their new building. The building itself is beautiful. The woodwork, decorations and windows really create a relaxed atmosphere. The food was good, economical and the portions were just enough.

I was introduced to this restaurant by a friend that told me they had the best french onion soup. We stopped in for lunch and I ordered the french onion soup and we split potato skins with no bacon on it. It was a delicious lunch. If you like lots of cheese and great flavor they do have the best... More

We stumbled upon AJ's because in a Saturday afternoon at 3 pm there were so many cars in the parking lot. Nice new place, as other reviewers have said, a little loud but so promising. They've only been at thus location since Labor Day so plenty of time to get out the kinks. Great menu, fun lively place. Certainly drop... More

AJ's has improved it's location with a beautiful new building with expanded seating in and out. Many beers on tap and a wide variety of menu choices. Full bar available. Parking is tight at busy times but it is worth the hassle.

Don't expect five-star dining here. Expect a lively, friendly vibe in the new, larger location. Great prime rib special on Thursday nights, good burgers, delicious French onion soup. Fourteen beers on tap (we asked) and yesterday's surprise special was fresh whole belly clams. Our college student waitress, Melanie, was terrific. And you can still throw your peanut shells on the... More

A little different vibe in the new place, bigger, brighter, noisier. But bikers still abound, and the outdoor bar is a fun addition. Food is unchanged, good burgers, pizza and other snack foods. Nice service too.

The food was good and the prices were reasonable. The service was friendly if not quite efficient. However, the builders did not take noise level into consideration for this pretty venue. On a a sunday afternoon a table with 5 small kids followed by a table of 12 men created a din that was tough to tolerate even though they... More

I am a local. Came to check out the new building which had been under construction for some time. Very nice facility. Has a separate banquet room. Nice quality construction with lots of exposed wood. First meal at the new place. We were a party of four. Thursday night is $9.95 prime rib night. The place was packed at 5:30pm.... More

Two couples: we wanted to try the new place as we're locals Food was OK... nothing was bad and nothing was outstanding. a selection of basic beers on a paper given with menus. However if you want wine, there's a chalk board tn the bar with brands offered (LOL-some brands listed were not in stock). Server was nice---overly friendly (shouldn't... More

All visits to this restaurant have been consistent and have not disappointed. The food is slightly above average, however the service and wait times are below average, thus my rating. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in the area and have 1-2 hours to dedicate to a meal or drinks. Other notable features, new building as of... More
