I have never had a bad meal at TJ's on the Avenue! The portions are good size. You will never walk away hungry. Staff is courteous, sometimes a bit slow but the meal is enjoyable. The food is always hot when it arrives and the garlic rolls you get are fabulous! The Chicken Pecan salad is my fav along with... More

Excellent home cooked food that is hot and delicious. We ate at this restaurant for an early dinner and were surprised by the hefty portions and the great prices. Well worth a trip here again and the food was wonderful. I don't drink but they do have a bar.

I was going to get a appetizer salad but was warned that my daily special dinner came with one and the salads off the menu were dinner sized. I received a very crisp plate sized salad... More

My family had dinner here last evening. We had a call ahead arrival at 6:30 p.m. There was a very short wait time due to a very busy restaurant. My husband ordered Chicken Parmigiana, our five year old had the Spagetti and meatball and I had the Chicken Piccata. My husband and I gave each other a taste of our... More

We have been acquainted with TJ's for years and have never had a complaint about the food, or the service. The food is prepared very well and in good portions. We have found it uncrowded on early Sunday afternoons, but it can get busy on Friday nights. The chicken parmesan is excellent and they also have a stuffed sole and... More
