“Nice for a quick stop- good inexpensive Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I have stopped here twice on my way home to New York from Cape Cod. The first time we found it as while driving down route 1 trying to find a place for a quick bite. We were pleasantly surprised - the chicken Marsala was really excellent, the salad very fresh and the service quick and friendly. It was so good we went back a month later. This time it was a notch down but still good. I ordered a penne with eggplant and ricotta. The eggplant had been deep fried which made the whole dish too heavy. However my husband's eggplant grinder was very nice on toasted bread and again the salads were very good. Prices and service are very good, atmosphere is simple and clean. Very nice.

“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We recently went to TJ's on the recommendation of a friend, who frequents there a lot. We were thoroughly impressed with the quality of the dinners, freshly prepared, delectable tastes, and very plentiful. The waitstaff was excellent and attentive. It was a Saturday night, and we would suggest getting there early as the place really became packed in the waiting area after we arrived. We are looking forward to going back. Altho we chose dinners, the pizzas also looked wonderful, and we will try them sometime, too. This place is a keeper!

“Best new eatery on the shoreline!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

Wife and I visited TJ's in October, a couple of weeks after they opened. Place use to be a KFC for years and we wanted to experience the changes. Wow! What changes!!Complete 180 degrees from the old place. It's new, clean and the service, food and portions are excellan as well as the prices! The place is small and very comfortable as they have not opted to stuff it with as many tables as they could get in there. A very friendly, comfortable family resturant.
We went back a few nights ago and had the same experience as last time. Give this place a try. You won't be disapointed!!
