AJ’s Bar and Grill is anticipated to open in early to mid-September at 105 W. Willis St., Leander, pending the health inspection process, according to owner Andrea Jobes.
The restaurant will offer craft dishes for lunch and dinner along with a kids menu and a bar and happy hour menu. The location will have entertainment on its patio stage and will host a Sunday brunch buffet.
Chef Nathaniel Bolt has 20 years of experience and will create seasonal entree specials and options for those with dietary restrictions in addition to the regular menu featuring primarily American food, Jobes said.
The space will include a bar lounge and serve craft drinks and local beer, wine and spirits. Jobes said when the restaurant first opens, alcoholic beverages will not be available but will be added at a later date.
The location formerly housed the restaurant Shea’s Place.
