AJ's Oldtown Steakhouse & Tavern
Daily 5:00 pm–8:30 pm
Fantastic food. One of the best steaks I’ve ever had.
Great food and service. One of the best places to eat in Homer.
Food is very very good but plan on staying at least two hours as it was about an hour and a half cook time for two steaks. It also took us 30 minutes to check out and pay our tab..... which was absolutely ridiculously expensive.
We look forward to dining at AJ's whenever we are in Homer.
Friendly service with card for our Anniversary (nice touch!) Food was superb! Will definitely return!
Overall very average. Touristy. Food had little flavor.
The steak was very good and they managed to cook it just the way I like it.
Another very good dinner! And a happy Mothers Day!
Excellent steak with Bleu cheese fondue as always!
We were seated right away and our server took our drink order while we decided on dinner choice. We both had the special, which was Prime Rib with mashed potatoes and veggie. Everything tasted wonderful, our waitress was excellent and the manager stopped by to ask how everything was. We will be returning and recommending AJ's to friends!
Service was great and the food was fantastic!! Had a very enjoyable time.
Always a Homer must have. Food exceeded expectations, service great and non intrusive. We will always make a reservation to dine here when we stay in Homer.
AJs always outdoes expectations. Food and service are superb and it’s always a terrific experience. I always recommend it to my friends who are visiting.
Great Steaks ALWAYS
Never been disappointed eating here.
The food at AJ's is consistently good and the service is prompt and courteous. We highly recommend them to everyone!
We try to go here every time we make it to Homer. It's definitely one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. I would highly recommend taking the time and monies to eat here you will not be disappointed. I also recommend reservations as this place is very popular with the locals so tables and lines are had to come by.
Went for my St Patrick’s day birthday. Irish piano music. Very good steak! Very nice Would go again!
AJ is a place where you can go relax and know that you're going to get good food wonderful service and meet locals.
We have always loved the food. We did ask to be reseated, the piano was a little too loud for our conversation but the staff reseated is with no problem. Thank you Marie Carlton
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!
love going to this steakhouse but i never order a steak since they dont have baked potatoes, they serve mashed or fries and that doesnt go with a steak for me, otherwise the food is very good and great staff
Kind of expensive but the food and service is excellent. We live in the Homer area and AJ's is one of the places we like to go to for special occasions and where we like to take visitors to show off Homer's great food options.
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 celebrated our 4th anniversary here. The scallops were perfection. Thank you for a most enjoyable evening :-D
The food and service was excellent. Great atmosphere that matched the food.
Always great food. Favorites include the blue cheese potato chips appetizer. Their steaks are the best between Homer and Anchorage. Live music is always enjoyable. Service is great. King crab is to die for!
As always, AJ’s was amazing. Their steaks are always perfect. My husband loves their steak salad. I think he’s addicted!
Food was good, too much pepper on "all" food a bit much for me.
AJ’s always delivers on great, affordable food. We take our special out of town visitors there 😊
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.
The best steak I've had since last year when I visited Homer.
I really enjoyed the rockfish dinner. It was full of flavor and I really liked the sides (kale and beets). My only comment is that the steak that my spouse received was full of fat and not what I was expecting from a steak house.
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.
Loved the live piano music. Just loud enough to enjoy but quiet enough to have a normal conversation. Good mix of steakhouse options. Relaxed ambiance.
Second trip to AJ's and this time on purpose. Did not disappoint. Still excellent Halibut Fish & Chips and a great Rib-eye steak special
