How do I get to AJ’s?
You will find us ¼ mile east of the Destin Bridge at 116 Harbor Boulevard (Harbor Boulevard is also Highway 98 East) situated on the Destin Harbor.
Will AJ’S cook my catch?
Yes we will! When you return from your fishing trip, the deckhands will usually fillet your catch and bag it for you. Bring that bag to AJ’s, let the hostess know you have your own fish, and she will write your name on the bag and give it to the cooks. Choose from blackened, grilled, or fried and we'll serve it up with fries, coleslaw and hush puppies. Your server will convey your preferences to the kitchen.
When is AJ’s Happy Hour?
Come see us any time between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday thru Friday for happy hour prices on beer, wine, and cocktails!
Enjoy our Oyster Happy Hour 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday thru Friday and get a full dozen of the Gulf Coast's finest for the same price as a half a dozen.
