Description: At AJ's Diner you will find something for everyone! Always fresh and always the best locally sourced ingredients teamed with fantastic service. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, we are here for you! We have a huge menu with breakfasts, fresh roast dinners every day, 28 day dry aged sirloin steaks, burgers, sandwiches, salads, seafood, chicken, starters and sweets. We've got it all! Everything is cooked to order. There's no such thing as frozen food at AJ's unless of course you are talking about the Maud's ice cream! You can even bring your own bottle of wine for our free corkage service! AJ's truly is famous for food! Our customers come from far and wide for delicious meals served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere! We are the perfect choice for families and friends. No need to book! We have expanded our floor area twice to accommodate our customers and now are spread over two floors and three rooms so there's plenty of room for everyone! Having a bigger get together? Call us to book a private function. Nothing compares to AJ's Diner! Or in the words of our owner Alan as he plates up yet another culinary treat, "Sure where else would you get it?!"

“Top Class Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

What can I add to the other reviews about this restaurant? It is all they say about it, Top class food, Great staff with service to match. With all the restaurants in Belfast I still prefer, and will, travel the miles to Crossgar and AJ's.

“Really lovely breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

My partner and I were in on Saturday (21/6/14) for breakfast and I have to say, the breakfast was the nicest breakfast we have had. I got poached eggs, piece of bacon and 2 rounds of granary bread and my partner got the scrambled eggs, 2 sausages and 2 rounds of granary toast. The eggs were so fresh and cooked perfectly, both poached and scrambled and my partner said that he didn't even need the sausages as the eggs were so nice!
The restaurant itself is lovely inside and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
I would definately recommend breakfast in this restaurant and I look forward to going for dinner some night.
