Good choice

Pretty average looking diner from the outside but what you get inside is better than expected! Clean surroundings, friendly staff and good food await. Will definitely be back, thanks.

TJ's is part of the thrill of my weekend holidays while staying at Super 8. Their menu is extensive and every item I've ever tried had been "all that and more". I so look forward to the journeys that take me to Cresswell ie; Country Fair, FaerieWorlds, Matthew Knight Arena. Thank you!!

I can't judge most service as we mostly go there on days when Brenda is working. She is a great waitress and is always friendly. Watching her work is a pleasure, she is so nice to everyone and seems very fast with her service. She always uses our names when we walk in, that is a good feeling. The food... More

The meals were excellent it is the service that was atrocious. We met friends who are regular customers of TJ's and have been customers for 14 years. Our request for refills on coffee was ignored until we stopped a wait staff. Our friends like iced coffee, so have milk, sweetner & ice added to a cup of coffee, this is... More

Lately the wait staff has a bad attitude, cold, unfriendly, almost to the point of being rude. The service was really slow, takes forever to get a second cup of coffee or anything else like creamer or sweet-n-low. The serving sizes have gotten noticeably smaller. We will find other restaurants from now on.

Never in my life have I ever been treated so poorly by staff, let alone the owner, of a restaurant. My friends and I walked over to TJ's because we were staying at the Super 8 next door and the location was extremely convenient. When we got their our waitress was giving us strange looks because we were still wearing... More

I want to thank Dawn and Frank for making my night at the Super 8 bearable. Dawn is "living the Dream" working there and obviously knows her work and knows her customers. I only had a burger but it was one of the best "bar burgers" I've had in a long time. Frank was New and doing his best to... More

Is newly rebuilt after a electrical fire. The lounge has lots of beers on tap as well and is new and bright. The restaurant is also all new with a fairly large menu. Good food at a good price.
