We went out to eat twice while on Vacation so we were hoping for a great experience, AJ's, for the price was not a good experience. AJ's was able to accommodate a group of 17 with no wait but now I know why. My son who is not a seafood man wanted a cheeseburger, He likes nothing on it but... More

AJ's is a large bar and grill right on the water in Destin, Florida. You can sit inside, but it's great outside, too. We went there for lunch today and the place was busy. But, even though there was a large crowd, service was pretty good. The specialty here is seafood and there's plenty to choose from: shrimp, calamari, mahimahi,... More

We were able to sit outside overlooking the harbor. Drinks were very good, but food was average. They had a band playing which I really enjoyed. The waitress we had was not very friendly, but could have just been a bad day.

We ate here our first night in Destin and while I thought it was a little pricey, the food was decent and I'd return for a nicer meal. The menu did offer a couple of non-seafood options, which were a little pricey (a chicken caesar salad was, I believe, $15), but we had quick service and enjoyed the views and... More

The sheer size of this establishment is awesome. Seems to have a little bit of everything for everyone. However the food and service were ok. I got a water with lemon which tasted odd. We ordered to the Blackbeard combo to split. The calamari was good, the smoked tuna dip was beyond delicious which I didn't expect at all. But... More

My husband and I have loved AJ's for years. You cannot beat the view from upstairs deck and live music is awesome. This year we noticed they added a deck which is so nice. The only problem is the food appears to be more expensive than in the past.

Stopped at AJ's for seafood and drinks. The seafood was Good and varied. Had oysters and mussels, chips and spinach dip. My meal was seafood platter. Catch of the day, fried oyster strips, scallops, fried shrimp, clam strips and crab, on french fries. A very filling meal. Live entertainment wasn't very good, table had to be recleaned, some stools are... More
