I got the blueberry ricotta pancakes and they were the best pancakes I’ve ever had! The only thing I would complain about is that the food took longer than normal to come out, but clearly it was worth it!

The service was great and the food good but too much! The servings were very large. The samon donut would have been better on a bagel! Too much invention here. We will be back

This was my first visit & I brought three others where this was their first time. Everyone loved their meals: bolognese tortellini, AJ’s wrap, filet Rockefeller and the salmon with coconut risotto. A good variety of cocktails on the menu, loved the Sobo lemon stick - great nod to Baltimore and super refreshing!

Went for restaurant week with my sister! We loved the food! The server we had was really nice and helpful actually all of the staff we encountered were super friendly, and the host helped us navigate the complicated parking situation. It was quiet but it might be because it was snowing and things picked up as we were leaving around 8:00 ish. I ordered the steak frites, we shared old bay wings and my sister ordered and loved the fish tacos (I think it was mahi mahi) we didn’t get dessert though which I kind of regret but may go back again for!

Drinks took forever to be served. About 1/2 hr. The appetizer was out before the drinks. Brunch menu is limited. Food is just okay. Would not go back.

Great menu and with a good number of options - brussel sprouts are to die for - sandwiches are great - and desserts are not to be missed - good selection of wines and beers - overall, very reasonably priced and a good place for a date - parking is hard, but so is everything in Federal Hill

I was so excited for this restaurant to open near me and it did not disappoint! The service was great, and I love how they re-did the restaurant after Bluegrass, the ambiance is really cute and cozy. My husband and I've been a fan of the owners' other restaurants, particularly Delia Foleys, and were very excited to try their new place. The food was great! I'm very pleased with the menu. Great pub-food appetizers and we loved the short rib grilled cheese. We also came on sushi Tuesday and got a sushi burrito, which was very well done and quite a variety from some of the other comfort food. Also, the drinks menu is excellent, and we will for sure be returning (probably many more times!).

Great menu, enjoyed the food. Very friendly service, nice decor and atmosphere. The Brussels Sprouts were my favorite, others enjoyed the meatball appetizer. 3 out of 5 of us had the scallops and they were perfectly cooked. Try the cocktails!

I was tempted NOT to write a review in hope that no one else would discovery AJ's. Since that seems unlikely, I'll post. The only negative I can write is that I called to make certain they would be serving brunch this past Sunday, was told they would be, but they were not. Turns out the did a soft opening brunch on Saturday and are not starting brunch service until 11/24. They did allow us to order bottomless mimosas, however! We had to order off the lunch menu and the food was all outstanding. The crab dip would be improved by a some more crab and if it was a little thicker. Serving it with soft pretzels was a winning combination. Our group tried the burger, fish tacos (blackened and regular), short rib tortellini, short rib grilled cheese and the grilled cheese bites with tomato soup and they were equally enjoyable. The french fries could have been a bit crisper. Service was outstanding (thank you Caitlan!). So, this is a place I look forward to returning to time and time again. Highly recommended.
