Ordered the blackened tilapia with sweet potato fries and was wowed at the taste, portion size and value for money. I've paid twice the price for blackened fish that didn't match the taste of this. Casual atmosphere with great food. Who could ask for more? Love it!

TJs apparently has a following at their Oviedo Florida restaurant. I went to the new location on East Colonial. Menus are available by the entrance so that as you make your way to the order counter, you will know what to order. Good thinking. I ordered Conch fritters which were okay just a tad too much breading. It came with... More

I went to T.J's because they opened a new location by UCF, and it is within 15 minutes from my job. No fluff here and right to the point the food was tasteless. I order the fired fish, shrimp platter(fried also) along with rice & beans, and hush puppies. The fish and shrimp was pointless to order and I really... More

This place is very simple but the employees are just Great, the food is just Great for the money, you get a lot of food for little money. The beer is a nice price, the place it's self was really enjoyable, we will come back for sure.

When we bought our house in Oviedo our real estate agent took us to TJ's to celebrate. It was a perfect introduction to what Oviedo is all about. Family run, great people, great fun food. I love their shrimp and grits, fish tacos, and ambiance. Sit inside or outside. Very informal and relaxed.

Visiting family nearby, we checked out the joint. I was there for 2 weeks and ate there 3 times. Mahi sandwich was the best I've ever had. Thn came the fried and blackened shrimp on the next visits. The only way it could be better is if it were on the beach. You won't be disappointed.

I have eaten here several times and enjoy a good piece of fish at a fair price. If you don't mind waiting in line,paying first and eating out of a basket,the food is good. The owners are friendly but the place is cramped too tight with too many tables in a small area.Grilled or blackened mahi fish tacos are great... More

My husband is the fish lover, & is never disappointed at TJ`s. I didn`t want to go as much as he did, till I discovered their hamburgers--they`re fantastic! Cheese steak sandwich is great, too. So, now, when I go there, I have to decide between hamburgers & cheese steaks, cause they`re both great--at a seafood restaurant! Oh yeah, once in... More

We met the owner of TJ's Seafood Shack at the new Publix Plaza on East Colonial Drive. She invited us up to Oviedo, to check out the original location, so we decided to do that one day for lunch. Service is counter service; and, you order at the register -- don't forget to pick up a menu by the door.... More
