Parking is a nightmare. They gave us very generous, reasonably priced portions of mediocre food. Our waitress was the worst and clearly is in the wrong line of work. She tried but she just kept getting everything wrong and I'm not exaggerating. I don't even hold the horrible service against the restaurant. The food just wasn't good enough to merit... More

Horrible dining experience. A group of 5 of us took our son out to dinner here for his 21st birthday. Things couldn't have gone worse. I called ahead to ask about pricing for their seafood buffet - This was their first day serving this for 2014 season. We went early to beat crowds didn't help service was still horrible and... More

This is a nice restaurant with very nice deck seating. If the weather is right, I would recommend sitting outside. They also have a new room with big garage doors that open, so you kinda feel like you're outside, but you are still inside. The food is usually good, but the menu never changes. It has been the same since... More

The food isn't bad, but you go here for the atmosphere. It's a giant tiki bar hidden in the middle of PA! Good beer selection too; they float blueberries in their draft Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat.

This is a very large sports bar with Good (not Great) pub food staples. What makes T.J.'s work is the extensive outdoor seating area which is well served by the wait staff and a very large selection of beers. The outdoor area is well shaded and tucked into the trees behind the place. It will be comfortable except on the... More

T.J. Rockwell's is known in town for their wings and their patio bar. Being from out of town, I wasn't sure what to expect. We sat out on the patio and were not disappointed. The restaurant has been added on over the years, it is apparent. The feel is a beach side oasis... with surf boards as the bar tops,... More

If you want some good beer on tap and some dang-good bar food, this is your place. The nachos and quesadillas are great for pairing with your beer. They also have Angry Orchard and some decent go-to beers for nothing special on tap, as well as shisty beer for people who have horrible taste in beer. Something for everyone! Rhino... More

We stayed at Airy View B&B in Marietta/Columbia. We wanted to go for a bit of a drive later in the afternoon and then to eat, after we explored a bit. Our B&B owners suggested T J Rockwells. Boy! are we happy they did! We loved the restaurant! The outside bars, with the thatched roofs and tiki torches created a... More

Our first visit was very satisfying! The food was delish! The pulled pork nachos were to die for! Give them a try! Different but great! The service is awesome! We sat in the atrium, very nice, just right, not quite outside but just enough. Will definitely will be back!
