The Second Best Pizzeria on the Shoreline

Pizzaworks is number one choice for me on Shoreline, this is number two. Great Hawaiian pizza! Outdoor seating in warmer weather.

Large variety of food from entrees to pizza, to grinders, wraps and sandwiches. Service is excellent and waitress was helpful. We all had wraps, grinders and sandwiches. All of them were fresh and tasty. The eggplant fries were DELICIOUS! Good place to meet family and friends for a quick bite

We drove a long distance to attend a show nearby, thinking we had plenty of time to stop to eat The food was just ok, and not all that inexpensive. 2 Cups of soup, 2 cups of coffee (and 2 only because we never saw the waitress again after the first...

This restaurant took over an old KFC location and we count our blessings. Featuring both Greek and Italian dishes, they do a terrific job of delivering a generous and delicious product. We have never been disappointed! The dining area has several very comfortable and private booths and the servers are a cut above the norm. TJ's is just our go-to-place... More

My family and I have been going since they opened - never ever had a bad choice. The portions are large, always leave with a take away box. There is a big menu to choose from.

Not fancy but good food and service to match. I have no hesitation to eat at TJs either alone or with out-of town company. I have never been disappointed with any of the entrees including their pizzas. I would rate it "good" but rated it average because there is no box for "good"

I ordered a baked scrod dinner, and it included soup or salad, freshly cut vegetables, rice and the scrod, all in generous portions. Everything was delicious, much better than a local seafood place we had recently visited. We'll definitely come back here again!
