AJ's Oldtown Steakhouse & Tavern Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
