My wife and I have been inviting guests to dine with us at Ajax Cafe for more than a decade. We have had some of our best restaurant experiences there. The designation of 'cafe' miss-represents the quality of Ajax cuisine. This past July 4th holiday, we made reservations for 5:30 P.M. and were 15 minutes late. The hostess was very gracious having held our table for an extra 12 minutes. Considering that the place was packed and there was a line to get in—this was very considerate. They rushed a table cleaning and had us seated within 90 seconds despite our tardiness.
We always enjoy the selection of hats that Ajax encourages guests to wear. We have many happy photos dining and drinking (big smiles on our faces) that we keep and send to friends. The food is always good, a great selection of seafood. Even though the Independence Day crowd packed the restaurant the cook managed to modify one of their items on special to remove dairy from its preparation. This consideration for my allergy is rarely handled so competently and with no need for extra instructions.
Sitting on the waterfront, some may miss the fact that the Ajax has so few tables with the view. Honestly, we never do look out the window. The boisterous happy atmosphere keeps us fully engaged throughout our dinner.
Saturday’s have live music. The two guitarists were perfect complements to the day, playing variations on modern songs and always earning enthusiastic applause. I’ve uploaded a photo of them as seen from our table.
