Good food at decent prices

The food is always good and the prices are decent. I had a group of 9 people and everyone enjoyed their meal and they were happy with the prices as well as the service.

I don't honestly see why so many people flock to this place. The food is ok, and the atmosphere isn't bad, but it is always too crowded to have an enjoyable meal with family or friends.

TJ's is a bar & grill type restaurant with a menu featuring a variety of sandwiches and entrees. What makes it distinctive is a huge deck area situated in a woodland setting. In good weather, you can sit outside if you wish. Otherwise there is a sheltered area which can be opened via garage doors to circulate outside air within... More

Went here for a later lunch on a Sunday. Sat in the lower dining room where they had a large projector playing football, a nice touch. Food we got was good, especially the Rhino Fries. Our waitress was attentive and pleasant. I have gone to this location before and sat our on the deck which is much cooler, however the... More

I love going to TJ Rockwells, but every time I bring my mother along, we have the worst of luck. I love their food, the crab chowder and rhino fries being my favorite. I also love the environment of it all. Last time we went though, my mom wanted a BLT, though not on the menu the waitress had no... More

Te wings were good which we ordered with... More

The food is good and most times it is very busy but worth the wait. I've eat there several times and never had a bad experience.

One of my favorite restaurants when I am in the E-town area! The chili and kickin' crab soup are two of my favorites. The fish tacos (salmon) are also excellent. I've always experienced good quick service during our visits. The food has always been very good, served hot and quickly. The menu is extensive and there is something for everyone.... More

If you love various motif's and good food, you have to try this place. We sat outside in plain view of a pirate ship, part of a playground, and had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was great, service was great, food was great, and the libations (spirits) were solid. They easily accommodated our party of nine and had no problem... More
