The casual, outside bar/restaurant area is perfect for watching the sun go down. Order some shrimp and their homemade sangria. Friendly staff. Great homemade salt scrub in the bathrooms is for sale at the front or through your server. Extra parking on 14th street.

A-J's is located on Tybee's Back River on the west side of the island. The food is typical of beach food and is well-prepared. The Crab Stew is particularly good. The service is very good but spotty at times. Lots of boaters, kayakers tie up here for lunch and dinner or just to have a cold drink at the bar.... More

Dropped in for lunch and we were greeted by a man behind the counter saying don't go in- the restaurant is full. I thought it might be a private event but after helping people with their purchases in the gift store we asked if he had a waiting list. Meanwhile other parties were arriving and confusedly walking into the restaurant,... More

We came here based on several recommendations from locals and we were terribly disappointed. While the atmosphere is kinda quirky and cool the food leaves a lot to be desired. Everything we ate had absolutely no flavor and was floating in a puddle of grease. We started using ridiculous amounts of dipping sauce which gave this food some sort of... More

I had a White Sea bass dish and my wife had shrimp and scallops. She said her shrimp were out-of-sight and the scallops were good. My sea bass was excellent. The homemade dip was outstanding. Many go for the sunset. Kathy was excellent!

We stayed in Tybee within walking distance of this place, and the restaurant was amazing! The price wasn't bad at all, two of us ate some real good burgers for less then $16. We ate here the three of the six nights we were here. the only reason we didn't eat all six nights, because one day we spent in... More

Buffalo Shrimp with ranch or blue cheese appetizer was delicious. Blackened mahi mahi po boy served with remoulade was excellent. Bloody Mary was tasty. Glad we found AJ's. Thanks, Tatum.

Delicious breakfast when we visited in May. Have been to Tybee many times, since it's the closest beach to Atlanta, but first tie eating at A-J's. Eclectic environment is very fun to peruse, and it's right on the water, south end of the island. Good food and service, check it out!
