This was the second time at Tj's and it was wonderful. Kathy was our server and the service was great. Cold, crisp salad, warm rolls, and entrees that melted in your mouth. My daughter-in-law had the chicken alfredo and I had the veal parm. The meals came out hot and they were excellent. We got too full for the dessert... More

Well this is place worth passing. Outdated and dirty needs a good cleaning (floors) and don't think the place has been painted in 20 years. May be offer a booster seat when you have toddler with you? Not here! Just keep driving!

Ordered carryout zucchini tenders, chicken pecan salad, and chicken piccata. The tenders were hot and crispy with a nice ranch type dipping sauce. The chicken pecan salad was loaded with fruit and nuts and the poppyseed dressing is one of the best around. Perfect with the ingredients. The chicken piccata was moist and tender and the sauce was very rich... More

Food is consistently good. This is not a gourmet restaurant, but there is a nice variety of dishes and all are good. The place is a little cramped and for some reason it always looks unclean due to the carpeting. It would look so much better with wood or tile floors,

This is an excellent Italian eatery. We had 15 guests, and the service was excellent. The rolls they have are unbelievably good. There is not a bad item on the menu. I made reservations for the group prior to coming in. If you visit on a Friday eveing, be prepared to wait. You can call ahead and they will put... More

I've been dining at TJ's for over ten years and have always been satisfied each time I've eaten there. Their seafood dish with mussels is outstanding! Their seafood alfredo is awesome too! Their kid's menu is $4 per kid with nice serving sizes. Their kid's meal cheeseburger is big enough for an adult. Another awesome thing about TJ's is their... More

We stopped here on an early Saturday afternoon because we had a coupon and had never tried them before. We thought they were American type food, not realizing it was an Italian restaurant. A nicely decorated place with a theme of Italy. After the hostess seated us the waitress came and made a point to tell us that the coupon... More
