AJ's Oldtown Steakhouse & Tavern Ratings and Reviews
My daughter and I went here to celebrate her birthday. It was quiet and quaint and pretty casual. We had the ribeye and it was excellent and well seasoned. The wedge salad had a homemade blue cheese dressing that was also tasty. This is not a super fancy place, but if you want a good steak, I would highly recommend it!
The restaurant was full but for our reserved 6 places. None of us drink. We all ordered pretty much the something. Everyone loved the food. Such great flavor in each thing on your plate. Pretty simple and straight forward food. Bread, meat and potatoes, and a small veg. Excellent service and food I highly recommend.
Excellent excellent excellent!!
We started off with the truffle fries. Amazing the best we've had anywhere.
We each ordered different cuts of beef & both were cooked to perfection & very tasty.
We finished off our meal with the best chocolate moose we've had anywhere. It was a very busy evening & our waitress was very attentive & excellent service. I'm glad we chose this restaurant. I would highly recommend going there for a delicious meal. It's every bit as good if not better than RUTH Chris steakhouse.
If delicious steak isn't reason enough to visit AJ's, then the sweet selection of live music must sway even the stingiest connoisseur.
Such a wonderful playset from one of many bands to perform at this delightful location, Neck&Neck appears to have enjoyed the evening as thoroughly as their delighted audience.
Between scrumptious bites of aged and seasoned steak, one's mouth should hang agape at the rhythmic serenading of a classy duo who sang Beatles art with Beatles energy.
This was our first time dining here, as we usually opt for the more upscale & gourmet restaurant, Harvest, while in Homer. But Harvest had closed for the season. So. Nice steakhouse with well-prepared steaks, some accompanied by Mexican shrimp or Alaskan scallops. My steak came with the Mexican shrimp, which were deliciously grilled, but the steak was more medium + than the medium rare + that I had ordered, so was not quite tender enough for my taste, despite being prepared sous-vide. My husband's rib-eye was perfect. The Brussels sprouts side dish was excellent, as was the meaty borscht soup and the beet salad. Service was impeccable, and the wine list solid. We would definitely go back.
We celebrated our 30th Anniversary at AJ's. We splurged and had king crab followed by Filet Mignon and desserts. The crab was awesome and the steaks were perfectly cooked (as usual). Darrel is always a joy and the waitstaff very attentive without being intrusive. We highly recommend Aj's and look forward to our next dinner there.
We keep coming back because the consistency in the food is good. Hubs had a ribeye and I had the prime rib. His was very good and mine was ok (a little tough, sadly), but we love our salads and can't beat the lemon-rhubarb martini! Next time I am trying the burger.
I come to the Kenai peninsula every year. This is best meal I've had in many years. My folks live in Soldotna during the summer, and said it was better than any of the other fine dining options in the area as well. We had the calamari and drunken clams for apps--both very nicely done--especially the clams--not one drop of the sauce went unused. My Cioppino had 2 big hunks of king crab! Halibut fish and chips were perfectly done, not greasy, very crispy. My wife had the simply prepared halibut--I could tell just by looking at it that they knew what they were doing--it was cooked perfectly. The steak was done to order and seasoned with salt/pepper only. Molten lava cake was perfect to split between 2 people to finish off the meal. We'll be back next year.
Excellent salad and prime rib the only negative was there was no soup made Friday night and the waiter said the kitchen didn't have time to make soup earlier in the day. It was a cold rainy day and soup sure would've hit the spot. I heard every table around us ask for soup as well and were also very disappointed. No soup won't deter me from coming back or recommending your great food to my friends.
