Get there early....they open at 4:00. Salad bar, soup, shrimp, boiled or fried and catfish. Fried okra, potatoes and so much more. Don't forget dessert, cobbler and ice cream. All You Can Eat. Go Hungry.

First time to try this place out this past Sunday. Everyone ( about 40 of us) in our group got the buffet. For me it seemed a little expensive for what you get, unless you can eat a lot. The fried fish was good but not the best I've had. You help yourself to coleslaw, fries, salad, tartar sauce, hush... More

The crowded parking lot tells how well liked this place is. It is a buffet and seating is fast and the service is good. All you can eat fried catfish, shrimp, and sides plus spicy good boiled shrimp. The owner is always close at hand keeping the operation running smoothly. The fish are hot and consistently good. If you don't... More

My family and I visited AJ's for a late dinner. We had the all you can eat buffet and it did not disappoint. The catfish was great! There was plenty of great tasting food and great homemade desserts. Great location on Lake Fork and a very enjoyable Texas buffet! You can also order off the menu if you want. We... More

Same old stuff. Frozen fried seafood put out for people to graze on. Very crowded and expensive for what it is. I don't under stand quantity over quality when it comes to food.

Definitely not worth $15 a person for the buffet, it consisted of prepackaged frozen fried food. I really thought it was a waste of money. The salad bar is shredded lettuce and tomatoes, there's also shredded cheese, imitation bacon bits and sour cream in case you want a baked potato along with french fries and fried potatoes. There's no options... More

I was expecting something great, but found plastic silverware and plates was the first disappointment. We had the Buffet. The "salad bar" which existed of shredded lettuce, cheese, chopped tomatoes, bacon bits. Where was the rest of the salad bar? Like red onion slices, beets, sliced carrots, red cabbage, vegetables? The rest of the buffet is FRIED-shrimp, catfish, potatoes, corn... More
