Anytime I’m on the island, I hit this place up. The food is always good, we’ve always had friendly servers and we always end up meeting some locals. The atmosphere is extremely laid-back and we dig it!

Hubs and sneaked off to Tybee for three days. We decided to get take out from AJ’s our second evening there. We shared a bowl of crab stew ($10.95!), but it was extremely delicious. I got fried oysters. Most entrees come with potatoes (no baked...More
