AJ's Oldtown Steakhouse & Tavern Ratings and Reviews
We had a fantastic meal, both of us had steak (cooked to perfection as always). my husband has a hard time anyplace else getting his steak cooked “well done” other restaurants don’t seem to produce a juicy well done tender steak. AJ’s never disappoints- we mentioned that to our server and complimented on the meal, he said the way they cook their steaks is a bit different, they don’t rush the process by covering the steak, they let it cook in the open like all the others, it takes longer but the result is a juicer more tender steak. Great food, great service and live music to top it all off! We enjoy eating here.
We go to AJ's once every month or two. The wait staff is very attentive & we never have to ask for refills of our drinks. Wait time for food is dependant on the season. Tourist season may have a longer wait. It is worth the wait! I have never had a bad meal here!!
The food was good (the zucchini was awesome, as was the steak), and the service was beyond incredible, without being obnoxious. We had everything we needed, even before we could ask for it. I have never thought the ambience was attractive, but others seem to find it so. I really don't care for the unlevel floors as they disrupt my balance and scare me.
My husband and I ate a steak for the first time in AJ’s yesterday. We went with the Prime cuts! The steaks were up there with the best ones we’ve ever tasted! My husband has eating steaks in fancy restaurants all over the USA and he was impressed with AJ’s. I know steaks less well than my husband, but I loved AJ’s steak too!
Great service, superb steak and seafood, excellent cocktails. Overall an outstanding restaurant, and would recommend this place to anyone looking for prime steaks and fresh /locally caught seafood in a casual old school Alaskan atmosphere. We are definitely going back the next time we are in Homer!
One of Homer's BEST places to dine with great food (steaks are their specialty) in a relaxed Alaska style environment. The live background piano music is very relaxing and comforting. When visiting Homer this is one place that must be on your dining bucket list.
We visited for our very first time, and we were greatly pleased with the service , food , and greatly enjoyed the pianist who played remarkably! We appreciated the owner who made his way around making sure all were happy and satisfied . We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great place to have dinner!;)
This was a first time visit for us to celebrate a birthday and have a weekend getaway. The meal was fantastic and service (Lance) was professional and attentive to all our needs. AJ's has great ambiance, not so much romantic but fun and relaxing which we prefer. Prime rib was the special and it was excellent, my date had the sirloin with scallops and it was cooked as ordered and delicious. Martinis were dirty and perfect in iced glasses. Their are many dining options to eat while in Homer, even off season, and we ate at AJ's two of the three nights we were there. We tried apps, drinks, and dessert.....all were excellent with perfect main course beef entree's, asparagus and potato's rounded off the full plates. Look forward to a return visit to one of Alaska's best steaks houses.
Traditional steakhouse fare and atmosphere. Pricey for what you get. Service was slow. Decent wine list but many only by the bottle which was disappointing. Steak was cooked to specifications while mashed potatoes were the best part of the meal. Won't be going back, especially with other more interesting options in Homer. Music was a nice touch for an evening meal though.
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.
