“Good country soul food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

AJ's belongs to the residents. Nothing fancy but comfort food. Try the hot wings or other chicken entree. You won't be disappointed.

“Nice burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

We were well accommodated and they were attentive. Everything was made to order, so it took some time. My burger was fantastic and so was the grouper. This is soul country food and everything is well seasoned.

“Others in town far superior”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

Just returned from a very unsatisfactory dinner at A.J.'s. We went on the strength of previous reviews. The service was awful, they were out of several menu items and we were not told until after we ordered. We waited much too long for our food. It was served luke warm and tasteless. We couldn't wait to leave.

“So happy we tried this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

This was our second time in Apalachicola and we wanted to try somewhere we hadn't tried before. The day we visited Apalachicola was very busy, and so were all the restaurants. We read about AJ's and decided to give it a try. This restaurant is not located in the downtown area for the tourists. As its name implies, it can be found in a neighborhood just northwest of the city center. The menu is straight forward and includes items like fried chicken, mullet, crab cakes and hamburger steak. The restaurant is very clean, more of an open floor plan, booths along one wall, a bar long one wall, and a variety of tables in between.
There were 4 adults in our party. We had the chicken, crab cakes, pork chops and fried shrimp. The portions were very generous. We especially loved the Mac and cheese. All of the food was excellent. The service was quick and friendly. We would recommend to friends and family and would definitely come back.
