Fish & Shrimp Plate
We ordered the fried shrimp and fish plate with Grouper being the fish of the day. The plate came with hush puppies and french fries with a cocktail and tartar sauce on the side. The fried food was delicious and cooked in fresh oil. The texture of the fried breading was cooked to perfection. The restaurant is most known for their local, fresh seafood and the whole meal was delightful.
Although they are called Mozzarella Sticks, this side is actually shaped like balls of melted cheese. The Mozzarella Bites made the perfect side when paired with the house marinara or ranch. Our eyes were bigger than our stomachs and the healthy portions of food left us with some tasty leftovers that night.
About AJ's on the Bayou
AJ's on the Bayou is a favorite amongst locals and tourists. The view from the outdoor dining can't be beaten. From the tables outside, you can view the beautiful Cinco Bayou and the Cinco Bayou bridge and watch as boaters and kayakers enjoy the surroundings. On the day we were there, the sun was glistening off the water, giving us the best view for dining.
We sat on the furthest part of the dining area and enjoyed an intimate setting without a crowd. Indoor dining is available as well, and those hours vary from the outdoor dining area. The bar is also located on the deck if you would like to have a drink with your meal. The restaurant staff was friendly making this an all-around awesome dining experience.
