“Affordable and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Good Italian food at reasonable prices. A casual, family atmosphere with enough seating for maybe 100 people. Service is friendly and prompt. Full bar.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I've been going to TJ's for years. The food is consistently good with Chicken Madison as a stand out on the menu.

“Delicious italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Probably our favorite local italian restaurant. Food is always consistent and delicious. I'd rate the food 5 stars but overall give it 4 because the ambiance is just average. Oh, and parking is pretty bad too. But don't let it stop you or you'll be missing a great meal!

“Great Italian food, reasonable prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Love this place, not a 5 star restaurant but they have really good food and very reasonable prices. You'll definitely enjoy them for lunch or for dinner; make sure you make a reservation on Friday or Saturday evening, or you'll definitely have a long wait!
