Destin Dining, Entertainment, Specials: August 2021


AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar
Since 1984, AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar has been serving cold Gulf Coast oysters and cool libations. What began as a popular local hang out known for fresh oysters and cold beer has grown into one of the most iconic “hot spots” on the Destin Harbor. From our humble beginning shucking oysters off the deck behind a small trailer on the Destin Harbor, AJ’s has grown to four locations along Florida’s Emerald Coast, serving the freshest seafood, best live music and most exciting water activities in the Destin area. Be sure to enjoy an adult beverage or two with AJ’s branded vodka or two different beers brewed exclusively for AJ’s by Props Craft Beer. Serving up daily specials and live music every night, AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar is where you want to be.
