This is the second time I have been to "AJ's" and it was better than the first. The staff seemed more organized and better at dealing with children and hungry adults. Great service and a delicious menu assortment.

Soooo yummy and lean. A tomato and clam broth and delicious seafood. Also had the steamed clams which were amazing. Great meal for not overeating as there are no carbs in this!
