Nothing special about the menu, but all good local foods.Great service. Simone, the waitress,smiled the whole time. The food came out quickly and was hot . We were there for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. No crowds and we were not rushed.

We happened upon this spot while biking around Tybee Island. Three things are not to be missed at this restaurant - the crab stew, blackened scallops and waffle sweet potato fries with cinnamon butter. The food was fabulous! The restaurant itself could use a little...More

We went to A-J's to enjoy the sunset view and we both ordered the crab legs, which cooked to perfection. I thought it was a bit pricey compared to a couple of other places where we had eaten. They did have free parking available.

Highly recommend A-J’s Dockside Restaurant. The outdoor seating is on a huge deck overlooking the water. The menu is extensive along with the selection of beer and wine. We shared a huge order of fish and chips and couldn’t eat it all. The clam chowder...More

My wife had the fried shrimp and french fries. I had the grilled shrimp, scallops and hush puppies. They were excellent! The service could have been better.

I think you would be okay. It’s all one level, and if I remember right, there are no impediments. I would call them to confirm.

Oddly enough I do not recall them having crab claws. They have great conch fritters and crab cakes, but did not have crab claws on the menu.
