We recently moved back to the countryside near Lexington,VA and decided to come to Chincoteague for New Year's. A Coast Guard friend recommended AJs for dinner, and luckily we got the last table! The crab soup was delicious, as were the scallops and tuna. Good price, excellent service. See you next year!

Management response:

We're thrilled that we were recommended to you guys! That means a lot, and it we're so glad you enjoyed the crab soup, scallops, and tuna. There's nothing like fresh seafood on the water in our book. That said, we sure do hope you'll come by for a bite with us next time you're in the area. All the best,... More

My husband and I just finished a fine meal at AJ's. The space is nice, but I do agree with other reviews that it is a bit loud - but not so much that it detracted from dinner. We had a lovely meal and were served by Ken. I told him that I had read positive reviews of his service... More

Me and my husband decided to eat dinner here and we were so glad that we did. The restaurant has outdoor as well as indoor seating. We sat on the inside due to the rain, but the atmosphere was very nice. Once we ordered our food, it didn't take long at all to come. I must say I was surprised... More

So glad you and your husband decided to give our place a try! It sounds like you ordered well -- the chicken parm is one of our favorites around here, and of course, you can't go wrong with key lime cheesecake. What a combo!

I had the lunch portion seafood linguini which had lots of garlic and oil but was still tasty. We also ordered the crab alfredo, which was surprisingly light-tasting. The bread served with the table was excellent- tasted really fresh. The kids ordered pita pizza which was decent for kids food. The pizza came with fries which were really good. They... More

Stopped for a quick lunch (1.5hrs) after walking the beach. The service was very slow as our server was more interested in the regulars I believe. The thing that really make it a poor experience was the dirty glasses along with just average food.

Thank inks11cls

Thanks for coming in for lunch, however, we're sorry you weren't too pleased with the food. We can assure you that no customer is more important than another, but we apologize if that impression was given. We are more than capable of excellent food and service, and we hope you come back another time to have that experience. Come back... More

We had salad and calamari. The calamari seemed frozen and not fresh. The salad was great. Wish that I could say the same for the calamari. The lot was full because there was a Thursday Night steak special. The steak being served to others looked amazing.

Management response:

Thanks for coming in and eating with us, however, we're sorry to hear you were so disappointed. While it's clear you were not pleased, we can assure you that the calamari was in fact fresh -- not frozen. That said, we must have prepared it in a way where the flavor was just not there. We will look into it... More

We had the surf and turf and both the steak and the crab cake were excellent. My partner had the filet and it was mouth watering. The only down side is that the metal ceiling tiles did not absorb the sound of the customers so you could hear people talking all the way across the restaurant. No place to go... More
