Seafood at AJ's Sep 24, 2009
AJ's on the Creek has an unprepossessing look about it. You might think it was abandoned--but it definitely is open. It is located on a creek and if you are seated at one of the tables along the creek, you might catch a glimpse of various waterfowl. It's a local hangout, too, with most patrons sitting in the bar/lounge. (The hostess popped out from the bar to seat us.)
AJ's is about seafood, specifically seafood caught around Chincoteague. A number of interesting items were on the lunch menu, including seafood (fish and shellfish) salads, but we opted for crabcake sandwiches. They were very good, as one would expect on the Eastern Shore, with lots of crabmeat and no filler.
A couple seated next to us had ordered fried oysters. We noted they spoke to the waitress after a time, and it turned out AJ's had run out of oysters. They had to get a fresh supply and were shucking them! (Maybe that was an indication of freshness?)
