The food was excellent and the waitress was very professional and pleasant. We were seated right away but told that we might have to wait for 20 minutes since they were very busy. To our surprise we were attended to almost immediately. Would have no problem recommending AJ's on the Creek to others.

They will accommodate "nice" people but reservations would be easier. Strong drinks, good salad, oysters Rockefellers wonderful, fresh seafood, scrumptious key lime pie, pleasant service. What's not to like?

This is a really nice place to have dinner if you want something a little bit more upscale than the casual atmosphere of Chincoteague. Dinner was great and the service was a really nice experience. My only complaint was that the dining table that the sat us directly underneath a VERY BRIGHT lamp which kinda took away from the intimate... More

Average food and service. Place needs a good deep cleaning. Tables and booths are well worn and a bit on the dumpy side. Guess for Chincoteague it could be considered a cut above but the entire village is a step back in time.
