A-J’s Dockside Restaurant, established in 2003, is an unassuming seafood restaurant with a waterfront location on Tybee Island’s Back River. Locals and visitors flock here nightly by boat, bike, or car for quite possibly the best sunset views on the island, and the fresh seafood of course! The local fish joint offers indoor and outdoor seating on their large dock overlooking the river, where you can listen to live music and enjoy island drinks like their famous Rum Punch.
A-J’s is tucked away on the back side of the island, with no major sign…so if you aren’t looking for it you might miss it! There is no fancy interior or pretentious menu items, just classic island food in a relaxed and beachy atmosphere – and it is perfect. A-J’s does not take reservations, but visitors can wait at the large outdoor bar area and enjoy an appetizer. On our visit, we enjoyed the crab stew and some incredibly fresh scallops cooked perfectly. There are plenty of options on the menu for non-seafood eaters as well.
With A-J’s dockside location, they offering kayak and paddle board rentals as well with hourly, half day, and full day rentals available. Taking out the paddle board in the morning and returning for a waterfront lunch on the dock sounds like a perfect day to us!
