I have never had a meal there that I enjoyed. I have however enjoyed going there with friends and hanging out. I ordered the grouper or catfish fingers one time; I swear it had to be scraps of fish or something it was a bunch of skin it was gross, like fried trash. My sister was ill for two days... More

This is a small place but the service and food is actually very good. Had a shrimp dinner meal and it was very good. Companion had the fish basket which was very good. I would recommend this to anyone..

Good seafood but a lot of grease. Mostly deep fried food. Not much selection of green stuff. May be good once in a while.

Absolutely one of the best seafood places we've been to. Hard to spot as the sign is faded, and tough to read, but once there? Heaven. I tried the seafood platter - very, very good! Wife had the salmon, also very good. Service was great, people friendly. We'll come back, even if I have to drive outta my way!

The food is excellent but service is a touch slow sometimes. Go when you have some time to spare. The atmosphere is seafood restaurant outdated. The food is good and the drinks are cold and that is what matters. The staff is great and friendly.

I had my first date in AJ's Oyster Bar so I'm a little bias as to it. First off its kind of cramped and very smoky on one side of the bar, but what to you expect its an ACTUAL BAR TOO...All of the different types of oysters I've had here were great. Very fresh and prepared well. Servers were... More

We've been going here for years. The shrimp are good,the oysters are good..all in all a great place to have a comfortable , very, very casual dinner. The non-smoking section is small. If you are a foodie expecting white table clothes, this is not your place. It is as much a bar as a restaurant. The atmosphere is rustic bar... More

Nothing to write home about, mostly deep fried and processed food from Sysco. Not worth the money in my opinion. I'd rather eat grease logged food from Sams/Sysco from the comfort of my own home.

Stopped in after a day of work and driving to find a really nice meal. The stuffed flounder was great, not overdone, with super flavor. It was surprising to see smoking allowed as it is not in my home state, but it wasn't that bad. I would recommend this place.

Excellent seafood including the oysters, alligator and shrimp. A good varied menu. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the staff is more than nice. I love the part where I can smoke (as you notice I am a smoker) did not had to go outside to smoke me a cigarette. I will come back for sure.
