If you are hungry and looking for a filling breakfast, stop at TJ's. It was fantastic. The food was cooked appropriately and our waitress was super busy, but never let us down. Coffee was good too.

Stopped in after a long drive from Bandon. The waitress was new but tried hard. Didn't know much about the beers, but took time to ask the bartender. She forgot to bring my salad until I reminded her when she brought the dinners. Again she was new and trying. Dinner was ok, not great but not bad. It's a diner... More

We thought we'd found a great place for late breakfast (11:45 on a Sunday) driving from Portland to San Francisco. Our order was easy: scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and potatoes. 35 minutes after we ordered we were still waiting. Asked the hostess what was up and she was at a loss. We decided to leave - she didn't even offer... More

Hi folks, Heard about your unfortunate experience. Your order never was sent to the kitchen. That is why you didn't get your food. Sorry. The restaurant was very busy and the server just forgot to put your order in the computer. Had I been there you would have been comped your meal which would have been expedited to get you... More

I nearly always stop here on the drive from Ashland to Portland and back. Best french fries I've ever had, great service, and good selection. I like the tuna melt. The fries are a must - even if you are eating breakfast.

Best breakfast in town! Food is all good quality, and reasonably priced. I have really missed it since the fire, but they are almost open again. Can't wait! My friends and I go there often for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

More like home cooked meals. They are remodeling and hope they haven't changed the menu when they reopen. Service has always been good.

I once regularly visited this restaurant when traveling south on business, but have taken on work within this small town. It had been several years since I'd been in TJ's, and the food was usually pretty good, and portions are large, so I am not sure about how the second reviewer was treated that day? Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised... More

We were starving, we saw their sign, so we pulled off the highway and wished we had continued on. In a nutshell, my wife and I were seated in a large room by ourselves while we looked at the bustling acitvity and attention the other room's patrons were receiving, with a few empty tables by the way. When we finally... More

We are regular customers, love their breakfast and all their waitresses are great! Brenda is wonderful, always bright and smiling, and very quick with our coffee and drinks, always keeping them full.

We saw a "motel" restaurant because it's next door to a budget type motel but.... The food is really good. The servers go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It's not fancy but it's clean and the food is really good. I had a chicken caesar wrap and it was the best wrap I've ever had.
