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.

Love the food here and the employees are the bomb! You can sit inside or outside on the dock and watch the boats, the sunset, the water. Good variety of things to eat.

This is your average seafood joint on the coast. I was really excited about the whole fried flounder. It was good, but really could have used some more seasoning.

The food was okay. The Conch fritters seemed burned. My husband crab cake sandwich seemed burned. I had the seafood chowder-was good. Lots of seafood. It sits on the water-perfect sunset. It has outside dining and is pet friendly which would make me go again

Group of 10 in Savannah for a week. All agreed this was the best meal we had, and the most reasonably priced. Oyster PoBoy was the best I had had in years.

Got a massive piece of chocolate cake, which tasted okay, but not for $10. Good views if you want to hang out.

My mahi mahi-loving husband ordered the mahi dinner, of course, with 2 sides included for$20.95. Although he specifically asked that the grilled fish come to him moist, it arrived dry, so overcooked. But the worst was the small size of the mahi portion. The mixed...More

A-J's is a favorite place for our family to gather for dinner and drinks. Rustic dockside atmosphere is very pleasant. Food is good. May have to wait for a table - very popular! Indoor and outside dining. Wait staff is accommodating and friendly.

I had just finished my four hour drive from Atlanta and needed food. As it was late, my options were limited. I managed to get to AJ's before they closed. They quickly sat me outside without a flinch. I was a waiter in my previous...More

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.
