The outside upper porch dining at AJ’s is heated, open and very pleasant on a January afternoon! We highly recommend the Oyster’s AJ’s, pictured below (jalapeño, Monterey Jack and bacon, 8 baked on the half shell. Yummy with a glass of white wine or beer.) The She Crab soup is a house specialty… and very filling. Perfect with a house salad for lunch. (Also pictured below) If you’re looking for traditional fried seafood basket, AJ’s is the place to be. Served with a crunchy fresh slaw (perfect! Not too sweet) , fries and a hush puppy, the lunch portion is perfect. Want something healthy? AJ’s will sub fries for the steamed fresh veggies, also shown below.
